Having the buses parked behind the new scoreboard looks terrible.

I never remember them there. Always parked to the front of the locker room area, not right behind the goal posts.

They are almost touching the locker room building. UHawaii parked on the back side, but that’s it

Just think how much worse this would be if we were wearing our old gray uniforms. :evil:

in many ways this is worse than the loss to Maine at Gillette.
If we didn't have 8 seasons scheduled, I'd say just pull the plug on this debacle

0-12 is almost a lock at this point. I predicted 3-9. Don't know where one win will come from. We could be worse than UConn last year.

Thought the SIU qb played quite well today.

Starting to think that Whipple actually did a great job here to get this program to 4-8. Maybe he wasn't the problem.

Not sure what the "announced" crowd was but tv cameras panning the empty stands made it appear about 1/2 full. Could easily be the crowd high point for the season. All you need is some drizzle and you'll see numbers in the 2500 range. I never could've imagined the dumpster fire this has become.

Should have hired the former Maine head coach (doubt he's making 600k at Minnesota as the db coach). This program needs toughness, not another FBS offensive spread coach.

I left to out to eat after the second interception in the second half. Evidently I did not miss any good UMass action. I do not like our hurry up offense. Too many procedure penalties. What is this clapping of the hands that the color guy said is messing up the O line. Get Curtis up to speed to be the starting QB and go to using a huddle.

I was planning to go to the Charlotte game next Sat. but it is a night game, 6 PM, There have been 2 shootings there, the one last year with a couple of students killed and they just had one there last week. Probably a good place to stay away from. Just stay home and watch it on TV

I thought they quit

What is it with the backup QB....every time he's hand off, he's fake a pass after the handoff
