Re: Lax to remain in the A10

Unfortunately, we are getting less competitive even in the A10, especially as more colleges go D1 for lacrosse, and NIL and the transfer portal are becoming bigger factors. Adding Delaware is good to strengthen the conference, but IMO it will remain a one-bid conference for most seasons. For UMass, ...

Re: 2024 Season

Gutsy play by UMass in an 8-11 (Thanks LS 71) loss to St. Joe's, who is really good. And huge, at D. Lots of Western Canadian players. Their 10-man ride is excellent and used throughout the game, with UMass players often being triple-teamed. Sorry to see Tobin leave, but he is off to be a Lieutenant...

Re: 2024 Season

High Point is killing UM after 1, by 0-6 score. HP has lots of open shots from 10 yards or less.

Re: New Transfer Rules

Yup, pretty much as predicted/feared on this board by many. So little continuity of players as they are increasingly simply mercenaries, not students.

Re: 2024 Season

too bad the MAC doesn't have a conference for lacrosse ( not enough schools with a program ) to be a sponsored league. But I guess there is hope, now that Umass is in the MAC for other sports, maybe we can have more MAC schools add a lacrosse program and then we could have the number one team in th...

Re: 2024 Season

Another 'perfect' one goal loss, to of all teams the previously 0-6 Brown.

Brown's ride was very disruptive most of the game, forcing many/12 caused UMass turnovers.

Re: 2023-24 Season

Not getting a NIT bid will probably hasten the exit of players, especially with the overall lack of respect for the MAC conference.

Re: 2024 Season

We lost time of possession due to losses at fogo (12-18) and some very bad turnovers. Offense was largely stumped in second half, with a couple of flurries. Bad loss.

Re: 2024 Season

OOps temporary lift as UMass enters top 20 for first time this season, at 20.

Re: 2024 Season

Unfortunately no 'lift' from the win as Albany is weirdly without a win. No more Thompson family in the wings?

Re: UMass is back in the MAC

You must REALLY be pissed/disappointed. You were constantly spouting the nonsense: FCS is "the better fit".....FBS makes no sense........."UMass' applications have doubled since the FBS move-up was anecdotal". "Would've increased anyway" Nope, not pissed. At this point...

Re: UMass is back in the MAC

Not looking forward to Tuesday night FB games in Amherst on the 'NU". MAC is almost always 1 bid for BBall, and this seems like it's all about keeping mediocre FBS football, instead of being on a row boat, we have rowed to the Elba in terms of regional and national interest. You must REALLY be...

Re: First reaction: UMass to the MAC

One measure will be transfers out from MBB and FB, versus transfers in.

A10 gives the illusion of more big city visibility on the East Coast. MAC is low visibility, loaded with 'directional schools', which are not big sports brands.

Count me as MEH. Might help FB, I figure a net loss in MBB.
