Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

There have been some developments in the business that will impact UMass. 1 is the Big 12 expansion with 7 schools that don’t include UCONN. Another is the impending ACC breakup, even if it’s 2036. The Big Ten and SEC will add some schools from the ACC and it will likely result in the Big 12 adding...

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

Make it happen We are getting to the point where it’s almost logical for the @ConferenceUSA to just add UMass Football & Buffalo for a northern leg as Delaware refuses to read the tea leaves and upgrade to the MAC with UMass for all sports. At least UMass & UConn for football only. https://u...

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

I'm still curious how that was a given. I've heard that argument over and over and over again. Maybe, MAYBE, with DK's recruiting ability, it was possible... and that's a stretch because we all know how his coaching ability turned out. Our recruiting level would have dropped significantly going fro...

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

You making a huge assumption that big boy football has led to the number of applications. If this assumption was right, wouldn't there be a greater student attendance for football and then for basketball? You’re making an assumption that people apply to attend sporting events. That is not the argum...

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

The Atlantic 10 is irrelevant and becoming more so everyday, the problem is the MAC is doing nothing either. I think we would be just trading one set of problems for another. I don’t know who said it but the Sun Belt has been very proactive and aggressive. UMass has zero chance for the Sun Belt. CU...

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

It was a given that joining the MAC meant a better chance of basketball tourney auto-bids. I'm still curious how that was a given. I've heard that argument over and over and over again.

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

There was no one who thought ten years ago wow the mac for everything will be amazing. It is a flawed plan then and a flawed plan now. Fine football gets a conference home, what does that mean for revenues? How many pay days can we have year Let's look at this solely on a basketball front. Who is e...

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

I just cannot get fired up for a conference full of Akron's or Directional Michigan schools.... i'd rather see them in the sun belt... The Sunbelt is the second best G5 conference now. They have surpassed the AAC, however, we will have to see how the 6 NEW AAC additions perform. But it’s a toss up ...

Re: 🗣 UMass to the MAC: Dedicated Thread

Note. the MAC is not interested in UMass alone. We need help to even get a MAC all-sports invitation these days. And it’s really only Delaware that is an option in the east. The rest are UAC and MVFC schools in the Midwest. Missouri St. will be the next upgrade, but they are focused on the Sun Belt...
