Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

We don't open with Lowell as we have in pre-covid years. UMBC tied for 1st in America East with Vermont last year at 10-4 in conference (14-6 overall).

Re: 2021 Season

There is more than a little something to be said for regional rivalries, not random FBS games. I was there for the beat down of BC by UMASS in 1972 - a glorious event. I was also there for that game with a Holy Cross grad. A very good UMass team beat a mediocre BC team but I'll take any beat down o...

He's the 8th pick in Round 2. Not too bad. Expecting at least 2 more today.

Re: 2024 Recruiting

^ I should have added a "sarcasm" emoji to my post. I do know that Mass Rivals is AAU and I put zero stock in anything I see about recruits that are 3 years out. I just thought the comment from Rivals Nation was worth a mention.

Re: Supreme Court on Player Compensation

The only way to keep this as a level playing field is to put a cap on endorsement deals. Pick a reasonable number, whatever that may be, and do it per semester or school year.

Re: 2022 Recruiting

Here's a list of offer we have made in the last few days. Most are 2022 with a couple for 2023.

The Spiders' youngest starter --- Tyler Burton --- is 21 and the program's best long-term prospect. Fascinating team. We can't be too far behind them. We have a few prep school post-grad player...
