Re: Attendance figures

Do we really think playing games in the Cage is going to drastically change the way we play? Its not the building Damn! I was hoping that was the problem. :lol: Hoping for better attendance, but until we start winning consistently, the casual fan will not start showing up in droves. Hope it changes...

Re: Realignment: Texas/OK->SEC; UCF, BYU, Ciny,Houston->BigXII-dominos

Was clear that was from a poster, who did post here "Beat Western", it was not first hand knowledge and with time, you learn other posters habits. I'm not sure that makes any sense... here is your other post talking about a vote in December. The last chance for a short term football only ...

Thinking about Conference USA as an all sports move..maybe they expand to 14 with a raid of the A10 Current (9): NM St, UTEP, Sam Houston, La Tech, Jax St, FIU, M Tenn, W Kent, and Liberty Add: UMass all sports Add: Saint Louis, Dayton, VCU, Rhode Island Future targets: Temple, Marshall, Buffalo, O...

Re: 2021 Season

Funny how it continues to be a Football vs Basketball thing :roll: It's a basketball thing against all UMass sports thing as the MAC is equal or better for almost ever sport except basketball. You and others with off hand derogatory comments are the ones with the making it a thing. Will call always...

Re: 2021 Season

Funny how many poke fun of the non marque bowl games but will get excited about the NIT.
The big difference between the two is most NIT games are played at a local team venue. For myself going to a bowl game would be a nice event and winning would match the excitement of making it to MSG.

Nice win to follow the win over Rutgers. Keep it going and who knows. The post season could be more than just the conference tournament.

Glad we beat UMass Lowell and hope we can have a second win in a row.
Please, a win streak would be nice.

Re: FROM OUT OF THE ASHES A GREAT PHOENIX WILL RISE

The A10 and MAC received the SAME number of NCAA credits in the last two NCAA brackets. 2019 The A10 had 2 bids and both teams where not in the field of 32, as in 2018. The MAC had 1 bid and Buffalo won their opening round and received 2 credits. 2021 The A10 had 2 bids and both teams where not in t...

Re: FROM OUT OF THE ASHES A GREAT PHOENIX WILL RISE

Agree with all those responding to Quann. Love can be blind, so choice to call those people 2 bid A10 lovers until the A10 has a few years of back to back 3 bids seasons. The last time we had 3 bids was 2018. While the Bonnies won the play in game, no team made it to the field of 32. Except for the ...

Re: FROM OUT OF THE ASHES A GREAT PHOENIX WILL RISE

Think UMass must exhaust it's football only options to appease some folks before an all sports MAC move is given a green light. Don't believe in football only as being short sighted and usually does not last long and then we'd be back as independents. Do New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama teams r...

Re: FROM OUT OF THE ASHES A GREAT PHOENIX WILL RISE

Steve, what is the update on going to the MAC, you've been as quiet as Bamford! Go back one page and nothing happens until CUSA presidents vote in early December. We need CUSA to vote NO to a football only UMass. A better choice for them is UConn or North Dakota if they really wanted a football onl...

Re: Game 7, 2021-2022: 11/24/2021 UMass Lowell

I'll be in the building, but I don't expect a whole lot of others to be. Hopefully McCall's home/road splits come into play for this one. After what we saw in Florida, I expect the defense to be improved. Based on what? I don't know, but after that showing, there has to be some improvement, right? ...
