Guys I support the UMass Football program. A lot of people who have been around the program will always be supportive and appreciative of Coach Whipple and what he has done for the program. If that annoys some folks, so be it - I'm quite comfortable w/my perspective. Now we support Coach Bell and the program and I am very excited to see what the new season will bring and i have high hopes for the future of the University and the Football program.

Per the UConn-Ole Miss contract:

- UConn will receive no guarantee
- Ole Miss will pay Middle Tennessee $1.5 million
- UConn has to schedule a game vs. Middle Tennessee (presumably in 2020)

UConn announced a four-year football television contract with CBS Sports. 4 home games this season, all home games in 2021 and onward. Interesting notes:

- UConn is in ESPN’s backyard, but the Huskies go to their “rival”
- UConn gets national exposure... though I’d bet UMass gets more exposure on NESN regionally
- UConn has IMG College as their media rights holder, same as UMass

UConn also gets $500k per year as part of the contract. It’s not a lot, but I’ll bet it’s more upfront cash than what UMass gets with Flo and NESN. Then again, I think UMass gets a cut of the ad revenue.

Considering 90% of the ads seems to be UMass ads, I doubt it is much.
Stop waiting for UMass to do something big and help UMass do something big. - Shades

I’d love to shit on UConn, but seems like a great deal to getting their football program national exposure every week for them.

They get ad space for little money.
