GAME 6 FIU 10/45/19

Post by 69MG » Fri Oct 04, 2019 6:20 pm

Berky says we need a thread so here it is. They put up 63 on us 2 years in a row. Can we hold them under 40?

Hope we can just be competitive and don't get anyone hurt.

How much evidence of non-interest on FBS could be posted, that a note on this FIU contest is posted so late/near the game, with this most 'rabid/involved' fan/alum base overall?

No one cares/or has given up on this season or the FBS journey to nowhere.

Eco you are wasting your time posting in the football forum.

Everybody thinks we suck and while that may be true, few are willing to throw in the towel on football even if they are throwing in the towel on this season. You are confusing the two emotions.

At least there were a couple green shoots last week including the QB play. We are headed for another 1-2 win season but it is just the season in the crapper, not the entire football program dude.

You may be better off sky screaming about politics regardless of which side you land on there.

It can’t be that people are talking about it on other sites like twitter. Another reasonable conclusion to draw is no one gives a shit about UMass hockey because there isn’t a season thread over on USCHO less than a week before the season starts :roll:
UMass Football: 22-3 at home when I was a student.

Eco, why do you persist here? We on the board are not the folks you are going to convince. Go try to build a consensus where there are not UMass fans!! Oh yes, you raise some interesting issues but I’m rooting for our guys to succeed at this level until I take my last breath. I don’t think I’m alone in that perspective.

Somebody please change the dump in Econalum’s Depends.

27 point dogs to a 1-3 team, I feel like we are due for another cover. Let’s keep the offense progressing forward.

Would love to cover in this game. FIU has been unspectacular this season, particularly against the run. I say try to keep it largely on the ground, use Curtis' mobility, and try to contain their rush. Not expecting a win, but with some effort and success in these areas I could see us keeping it respectable, which is all I'm looking for.

Game is listed for ESPN3, which is on line; but also shows on ESPN College Extra which is TV....BC-Louisville, CConn-Sacred Heart, among others are on ESPN College Extra now.

I think EconAlum is just a troll here to bust our balls. Most comments are nonsensical. I especially like the way we have over 42,000 applications for the freshman class and he says that would have happened anyway if we stayed 1AA.

Clearly worse than anyone could've imagined.
