Agreed. COVID is a whole different matter. I have kids too and couldn't imagine what transpired to Aiden.

Re: Coach Frank Martin

If anyone doesn't know, Chip has shown himself to be an ass for many years. Possibly a WMass cousin of our EMass red-headed stepchild. The guy is jealous as h&ll. He probably makes 75k a year or something like that. FM will make more in one year than Chip will make in his life. Ignore it, it's ...

Interesting, like watching a car wreck
seems like we'll only have Frank Martin for a few years before the Miami job opens up.

Re: future scheduling talk

Chris Vannini in the Athletic mentioned CUSA turning us down as football-only. That could be true but MAYBE just MAYBE Bamford is correct and there will be another big shake up in college football and we can land in the MAC again or another suitable conference.

Re: future scheduling talk

Agreed. I totally like all the hires now and now we need to actually win some games. The bad old days of McCall and Bell are gone. I am saying there will be at least 2 wins this season: Stony Brook and NMSU/UConn/Ark state. Don Brown is an experienced coach and has seen a ton of games.

Re: future scheduling talk

Let’s put the A-10 bids in perspective. 2014 a very impressive 6 bids. Since then 2015-3 bids 2016-3 bids 2017-3 bids 2018-3 bids 2019- 2 bids 2020- no tournament 2021- 2 bids 2022- 2 bids That trend is not going back in the right direction. Yes, it gets more bids than the MAC and the CUSA. But for...

Re: future scheduling talk

who knows?!? maybe Bamford is the miracle AD. maybe he's right when he says the conference piece "will work itself out". We just got a very highly rated QB as a commit next year. Ahmad Haston turned down a P5 and some G5 schools for us.

Re: future scheduling talk

If we move football to the MAC we would screw our basketball program. They only get 1 team to the playoffs. This logic has baffled me for years. Umass bball hasn’t finished in the top 5 in the A10 for 5 years? 10? How long has it been since they won the A10 regular season or conference championship...

Re: future scheduling talk

If we move football to the MAC we would screw our basketball program. They only get 1 team to the playoffs. Agree totally but C-USA basketball is even worse. I like the Loyola add to the A-10 (it seems odd that the A-10 is filled with schools that won national championships and final fours 50 - 80 ...

Re: future scheduling talk

Ryan Bamford has done a great job as AD, but to say “we have to win games” is asinine! No sh&t!!! I thought we had to lose games. All I can say is if people want to stay in the A10 permanently then you can kiss FBS goodbye! Good luck putting together a schedule after 2024 or 2025. But you say” o...

Re: future scheduling talk

I am aware. Did you listen to the plant the flag podcast? Bam discusses this. At the 46 minute mark bamford addressed this issue by saying: “the conference piece will play itself out” and “we have to win games”. Absolutely none of the pertinent issues I brought up were addressed. He gave an opinion...

Re: future scheduling talk

Hoop returns to sweet 16. We are in a conference as long as we pull 500 Would be awesome if we could be a half decent hoops team again. Going to Sweet 16's and NCAA Big dances but you have to realize that FBS football is a different animal. There are no more Independents like back in the day and ge...

We are set for games thru 2024. Maybe we can cobble together some sort of schedule after that.

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

Thanks again and hope the best for all UMass sports. CUSA is the main conference we have been making a hard push for and makes perfect sense for football only. Hope football finds a home as independence is a serious head wind. Hope football finds a home as independence is a serious head wind. I don...
