Re: Coach Frank Martin

We are acting like a serious basketball program and athletic department. Finally. It is bringing a tear to my eye. I will reserve judgement for the moment - "you can't get a little pregnant", but in the case of Umass it is a possibility. I get the "we got money to spend now" sen...

Re: MAC Sports topics that include Hoops

Agree Eldonabe. The MAC has good leadership as Chris Turner, Deputy Commissioner/COO. In his role, Turner will be engaged in several facets of the Conference’s operations, including overseeing the league’s long-standing partnerships with ESPN and CBS Sports, and serving as the liaison to the directo...

Re: MAC Sports topics that include Hoops

It's being reported by the Gazette that the new MAC ESPN deal will be 2-2.5M each and then added in 1.6M for the CFP while the PAC-2 are carving out 6.4M and UConn 350k from the G5. That's 3M more than the future A10 and CFP extension figure. The 3M comes in handy as the NCAA settlement will be lowe...

Re: NCAA/Schools Paying Players - What's Next?

The Gazette did a two-part series on the proposed NCAA settlement. For dummies like me, this was a nice breakdown of that the deal is, how UMass might be affected, and how joining the MAC may save our bacon. For all the negative nellies out there, yes we're still going to be screwed and won't be ab...

Re: Conference Realignment

No eldonabe, not just basketball. URI has been doing well in FCS, but their stadium was terrible. However, they have been given 65M by the legislature, with 42M towards replacing the east stands. The other side is restricted by the Ryan Center, but their is space in the south end zone for a football...

Re: MAC Sports topics that include Hoops

This is a post from the MAC board after Missouri State commits to CUSA and going FBS. At this point I would venture to say that WKU is off the table !! Seems that a good majority of their fan base want to stay put … That’s OK, time for the MAC to focus on an Albany, Stony Brook, or Illinois State ad...

Re: Conference Realignment

Missouri State moving to CUSA, probably solidifies Western Kentucky there as well. Time will tell if the MAC moves to 14 teams. Illinois State and Rhody are two possible teams with basketball history. Albany has potential in joining the MAC and being in the capital with a decent media market. Close ...

Re: The Midnight Ride Collective - Content and Coverage

Thought Corey Schneider, Co-Founder and Executive Director, explained the Midnight Ride approach very well during the spring game. It's not transactional. The players need to want to be at UMass and coached by Don Brown. Then, the NIL objective is to supplement the players with every day expenses et...
