Great to see! Great to see it didn't say "-Amherst."


Side note: A major survey went out today regarding perception of the school. It came via email and had a section of asking what the responders positive and negative reactions to the following names were:

University of Massachusetts
University of Massachusetts Amherst
UMass
UMass Amherst

I am able to record Jazz Ala Mode on tape from WFCR, New England Public Radio, to play in my car, 2004 Buick La Sabre, and when they mention their sponsors the five colleges they say UMass - Amherst.

CNBC wrote: Massachusetts vaults into the top 10, finishing No. 8 this year largely on the strength of the best workforce in the country. It also finishes No. 1 for Education, with strength at all levels — from the top 4th- and 8th-grade test scores in the nation, to top colleges and universities, including Harvard, MIT and the University of Massachusetts. If that is what Amazon means by “the ability to attract and retain top technical talent,” then this state clearly has a shot.
Interesting ambiguity. Are they referring to UMass Amherst, UMass Boston, or the UMass System as a top university? I mean sure UMass Amherst is the highest ranked campus and we do have a ton of alumni in Boston that could work for Amazon, then again, we're not located in Boston. Internships at Amazon from Mount Ida would be freakin' sweet.

Not a UMass reference, but Cosby was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in PA state prison. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/peo ... chromepush

Zo is wearing a UMass sweatshirt on tv right now. His daughter is a student.

That's great. We know Beetle would love to talk UMass sports and if they're actually successful on the court or ice this winter maybe, JUST maybe, they will touch on it. They used to have Whip on every once in a while, would love to hear them try and get McCall on once a week even for a quick hitter.

Zo makes me think Alonzo Mourning... feel like I'm not correct here though.
