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.

Re: Coach Search 2022

Not a great look, but perhaps there are other factors, like family, or housing affordability that came into play. Amherst area is no bargain on an Assistant's salary vs. the South.

Re: Coach Frank Martin

I think it would be a good thing for UMass, and gives Frank both some short-term breathing room and build his recruiting panache nationally. I'm sorry, but breathing room, from what?

Re: 2022 Season

Who knows what the rules are anymore, and NIL seems to make things worse. The word commitment is old school now, perhaps 'tagged' or "first choice' are better monikers. And who knows who is whispering in Dad's ear about better opportunities? Certainly, this is much looser than 'early decision' ...
