Woulda, shoulda, maybe coulda, but didn't happen.
There's a lot of points throughout UMass history where maybe they were in the wrong place, the wrong time, , wrong political environment, made the wrong decision, or didn't put themselves in a favorable or opportunistic position.
They also made some really good decisions to stick around for 156 years and grow to where they are today. So it is what it is.
