I do enjoy the mockery, but this one below is the highlight for me.....

"MEANWHILE IN #MACTION LAND ... Boiling Green has a check-cashing ceremony at Notre Dame this weekend to cover its medical bills after losing to State of Kent 62-20. We're already looking at the possibility of hosting Bottom 10 GameDay at Boiling Green on Nov. 2, when Akron-monious comes to town. And by hosting Bottom 10 Gameday, we mean Periscoping from the back of my rental car in the parking lot of Perry Stadium."

That made me laugh out loud.....

With 349 points allowed in six games, we are far and away number one in this category. The second place team trails us by 51 points. No one thought it would be this bad.

^ Actually 7 games; they're 1-6; they're giving up an average of 7 touchdowns per game (49.85 PPG)! :shock:

Whip's teams here always had an offense. I believe the main frustration was that as the OC and HC he put too much emphasis on building the offense and just seemingly left the defense (and special teams) to wither on the vine.

There was also occasionally frustration with the head-scratching play calls, but that's just kind of a Whipple trademark at this point.

Just my opinion, but I'm about as surprised that Whip is having success as a P5 OC as I would be DK being a P5 recruiting coordinator.

Whip was the most successful Head Coach in UMASS Football history. He inherited a dumpster fire from Morris/Molnar and improved the program and he remains highly respected here so its nice to see him having success at Pitt. Just a damned good coach. Hopefully Coach Bell gets his act together and starts improving the program in a similar fashion.

Love Whip, but Brown, Mac and Fusia were more successful coaches than him, let’s not rewrite history. Whip definitely restored some lost luster from the Morris/Molnar years for sure. I am glad he is having success at Pitt. I wish his return here had worked out. I will always wish him well until we face him.....

I agree 100% lets not rewrite history. The History indicates that Brown, Mac or Fusia were all excellent Head Coaches however the history also indicates that none of them ever won a National Championship as Head Coach. I have nothing but admiration for Don Brown - his 2003 team may have been the best UMass Football Team ever -, but to be fair - the history shows that Coach Whipple won a National Championship in that memorable 1998 run to glory therefore you have to say that Coach Whipple was the most successful. Hopefully Coach Bell winds up being the most successful UMass Head Coach - I'd love to seem him start by beating the sled dogs on Saturday. :D :D :D :D

^That great 2003 team was coached by Whipple. Brown was coaching Northeastern that season IIRC

MacPherson went to the Sugar Bowl at Syracuse.

But that's beside the point. I really don't think it's worth debating who's the best coach in UMass history.

Hopefully, our best years are ahead of us.

Ya but rubbing salt in the wounds. We could get to 20k attendance, requirement at the split, back then and did so earlier for BC.
IF the UMass AD decide to stay 1A, then Dick MacPherson presumably would have stayed.
Just imagine where we be today.
