Who is making the trip out? We have an AirBnB in Chicago with extra space if anyone needs a place or wants to make the trip.

The dubious distinctions of UMass breaking the NCAA records for most points allowed in a season (605) and highest average points allowed per game (50.4) in a season is still within reach. :twisted:

With 2 games left, UMass has given up 531 points. They added to their ppg allowed average vs. Army, to go to 53.1 from 52.

I would be shocked if they did not reach these milestones

MJ has the betting fever. We haven't given up fewer than 40 in a while, so that line is interesting

Now that I think about it, Northwestern's awfulness could hurt our chances of being the worst defense ever in terms of points against. Although BYU could put up 80 to impress the bowl selection committees. :D

Are there bowl selection committees that can't determine good defenses from bad defenses??

This game could go down in the vegas gambling record books. I didn’t think it could be possible for a 1-8 team that is 2-7 ATS and averages 11.1 ppg to be a 40 point favorite. It’s absurd. Vegas just can’t keep up with the awfulness of Umass. We are 1-8 ATS and the over is 7-2. For those who don’t understand gambling but can count money, if you bet $100 against the Umass spread and $100 on the over for all 9 games you would be up $1,170 for the year.

Other than the Akron and UConn games, which I thought UMass could actually win outright, this is the first spread that has actually interested me. All of the blowouts Vegas thought were heading our way landed and then some. This UMass team isn't nearly as talented as the one from a couple years ago but this has a shot to be like the BYU game if Northwestern has quit on the season. Main difference being that team was able to win where maybe, just maybe, this team has a shot to cover a 5 score spread.

I live in Chicago and will be tailgating with the Chicago Alumni at the South Golf course next to Central Station. Hope to meet some good people and enjoy a half of football before I leave. Yup... Just a half.... Unless Umass is up. Hmm... freezing weather but Umass beating a Big Ten team....
