Re: 2022-23 Schedule

The more-likely standard opponents we'd get to come to the Mullins Center are, of course: Lowell, NU, BU, Harvard, Holy Cross. I'd be fine with all five coming to Amherst for a butt-kicking experience next season. I'd even be okay with one of those games on the road in a two-for-one series. We shou...

Re: Swamy Retiring - June 2023

Swamy has been a great chancellor, and yes, a friend of athletics as the front porch of the campus. Hopefully his successor will share that view. We still have him for one more school year, but it's not too early to wish the Chancellor congratulations and all the best in retirement!

Re: Frank Martin he’s one of us!

^ First things first! The majority of alumni and fan base are to the east and that's where you start! I'm sure in time he'll get out there. Coach Martin said at the "Coaches Caravan" event the other day that one of the first calls he made after taking the UMass job was to John Calipari. H...

Re: Coach Search 2022

Lappas wasn't hired because he was the biggest name. As I recall, it was kind of a backroom political deal.

Re: Liam

Thanks, Floyd! You still going to hoop games? I've been to a grand total of two, and they won both.

Re: Liam

That would be a tremendous career move for Liam. At the tender age of 36, Sean McVay has already sent assistants Zac Taylor, Matt LaFleur and Brandon Staley to NFL head coaching jobs, and they have all had early success. I don't think we can say the same about the Belichick coaching tree.

Re: Game Six: UConn

Maybe 4 MBB NC's and a zillion WBB NC's will do this to you, but many UConn fans continue to have a highly inflated opinion of their worth in the overall college athletics universe.

Re: If a FB only inquiry is made to UMass - your preference

I think UMass, UConn and Temple need to put their heads together and talk about options for some kind of Northeastern football-only arrangement. These are three large public universities in the region with the most on the line. The AAC is about to go on life support which obviously impacts Temple, w...

For the record, let me say that I don't think going to the game was a waste of gas. :)

Re: Game Three: EMU

This will be a good barometer game. I still not sure we're good enough yet to beat even a middle-of-the-pack MAC team, but I would love to eat those words! A competitive game will give me more hope after watching some good things happen vs. BC.

Re: 2021 Season

No question, the best crowds ever were the BC win in '72 and the UNH game in '06. You'd almost think we were a rabid college football school. :wink: A couple of Jesuit priests from BC were sitting behind me and they couldn't believe what they were seeing. One of him was hitting his flask pretty hard.

Re: Texas/Oklahoma official announce moving to the SEC

The more I think about it, the more I think that if I want to watch professional football, I'd rather wait until Sunday for the NFL.
