Re: CAA expanding for lax?

CAA has always seemed like a force fit in Lax, unlike us in 1 sport HE. Not sure that I have an answer, it would be ideal if A10 had enough MLAX teams. I would not go independent, but it would seem CAA will have more teams for UM to play in the conference and therefore hurt the scheduling of OOC str...

Re: BU tonight 1/25/2022

Tough 30 first minutes witH A SOLID COMEBACK, falling short. Effort early is important and UMass lacked that energy.

Re: Attendance figures

There HAVE to be enough sports management majors/courses that could bring ideas to the forefront as class projects and/or interns for credit.

Re: Replacements for McCall

May I suggest the honorable, Bob Knight. All time record of 902–371 (.709). 3 NCAA championships. And he's probably a little too old to knock people around too much anymore, so he would be a kinder, gentler Bobby Knight. According to reports, he lost his fastball around 2015 and now is suffering fr...

Re: Game 16, 2021-22: Rhode Island (1/15)

The crowd was really OLD for a college basketball game - the majority of attendees seemed to be at 55-75, undoubtedly hoping for days long gone. A few parents with grade-schoolers. maybe 100 of college-age, tops. The arena was as dead as I have ever seen. Even the 'dance team' seemed uninterested. ...

Quick search says he was extended through 2022. Here we are!!! 3 months and change. "Bamford’s original five-year deal took him from his hiring on April 27, 2015 to April 26, 2020. The extension goes until April 26, 2022." https://www.umass.edu/archivenewsoffice/article/ryan-bamford-earns-...

Re: Game 16, 2021-22: Rhode Island (1/15)

I do not see any grand conspiracy against UM or for BC, which is also in the doldrums in most M sports.

We are fully capable of shooting ourselves in the foot, using a repeating rifle.
