Re: Game 8, 2022-23: Albany (12/5)

FWIW 0- This is the last week of classes and lots of students face final project class reports this week prior to finals starting. Procrastination til the 'last minute' yields athletic absence. I say 2,500 maximum, probably less. https://www.umass.edu/registrar/calendars/academic-calendar#Fall%202022

Re: Game Eleven: Texas A&M

In the modern FB game, the QB position is key, and it is clear we do not have it at the FCS level, much less FBS. As the worst team in 'big boy' football, that has to be the number one recruiting priority. IMO, this is more important than just firing the OC, given the obvious limitations we have at ...

Merriweather dances and does not hit the hole quickly.

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

There are more parallels than not, especially the Gillette stadium disaster for attendance and/or brand loyalty among current students.

Re: It's not always rosy in the Power 5

New article on the attendance and financial trials and tribulations of UCLA football. Many sound very familiar, except the winning part.

Re: Game 8: New Mexico State

Long-time posters know where I have stood for 11 years, FBS success was a WEIRD pipe dream. AND 11 years plus have yielded nothing but losses, and a non-involved student, alum, or casual fan. The trends are clear - the BIG 5, or better Top 2 (Big 10 and SEC) will dominate FBS and sports funding, as ...

Re: Toledo Game

Wonderful education and expanded research $$'s are the engines of UMass ratings growth, FBS football is the raggedy wheeled caboose, trying to slow or pull the UMass' rep down. The average UMass entering first-year student has over a 4.0 overage this year!!! How many of them will grace the stadium a...
