Re: UMass is back in the MAC

They needed a home and they got a homeless shelter. Better than being on the street. Look, I get it. Just hate reading the press crap with "elevating our institution" with this great move...paraphrasing the Bamford press release. It was any port in a storm, and I'll admit it's been pretty...

Re: Conference Realignment

I seem to remember in previous conference talk we used the term "like institutions" quite a bit. Are CUSA schools "like institutions"?, or does that not matter anymore as we're in a desperate need for a home? The geography and travel also looks crazy.

Re: Conference Realignment

Anyone else unimpressed with 16K attendance for the Fenway Bowl with a local ACC team playing? They couldn't give the tickets away.

Re: McGuirk Upgrade

Not sure $20 Million would be enough. And for those who want to build around the "existing structure", not exactly sure what you're talking about. McGuirk is nothing more than two separate (and old) concrete slabs with seats bolted into them. It really needs to come down and be rebuilt fro...

Re: Conference Realignment

The truth may hurt, but eldonabe has the Umass situation summarized quite well. As for students not giving a "bleep" about sports...ANY sports, I do believe this. I don't even think that winning would turn that around.

Re: 2024 Season

I see one gimme win, 7 flip of the coin games and 4 guaranteed losses. That means we need to win 5 of the 7 flip of the coin games to get to 6 wins. That's a tall task.

Re: 2023 Game 11: @ Liberty

Seems to me that the only real difference between Liberty and UMass is the skill level of the players and the coaches.

Re: 2023 Game 8: @ Penn State

Just hoping the admissions department can handle the increased load of applications after casual fans witnessed this blowout. Talk about building the brand... 😂

No one who's followed the team for any time was celebrating at halftime. Trust me.
