Re: Matt Kost (Kosty) - Everyone please read

Just saw news of Kosty's passing and felt that this was the appropriate place to share condolences. I only knew Matt from passionate discussions on here and a few years of Facebook friendship, but it was clear that he was a wonderful man and father who was loved by many. Our UMass family was lucky t...

Direct quote from one of my fourth graders after we watched the first half in class:


"Now I know why UMass hasn't made this tournament in 16 years."

Hope everyone heading down to Raleigh or who is already there has a safe trip/great time - I'm jealous of all of you. The only bitterness I have about us making the tourney this year is that we waited so long to get back here that I'm finally at the point in my life where I can't just drop everythin...

What's the fascination with Antonio's vs other pizza? Late to the party here, but I'll try to answer your question by saying that one of the morons at Barstool recently wrote a stupid column based around the point that because Antonio's cheese pizza isn't Earth-shattering, the entire place is overr...

Adrian Zullo was from Florida. So was Jeremy Cain, Steve Baylark and many more. Whip has always recruited Florida long before he was at Miami. Bringing Cassano back on staff drives home that commitment as well - he recruited there for us under Whip the last go round, went down to become recruiting ...

I've made my thoughts on Whipple coaching us again abundantly clear for going on a decade now, but I can't help but gush again....this is the best possible situation for us, and we will realize whatever potential our program has at the FBS level under Whip. We may find out that we don't have much po...

If I hadn't already seen UMass basketball crack the Top 25 this year, I would insist that bringing Whip back was simply too good to be true and prepare for us to fuck it up somehow. But.....

I apologize in advance for being reactionary, but my first thought upon hearing this news: McCutcheon needs to go. His last two football hires have used their five collective years to undo everything that was great about UMass football and drive this program into the fucking toilet. I don't care wha...

I bought seven tickets this week, Section F Row 31 I believe...they are definitely running thin. Will be my first time in the Mullins Center in almost 8 years :shock:

I'm shocked that our afternoon in Carbondale the following year doesn't top your list, though :wink:

Jackman, seeing your avatar photo of Steve Baylark in the cold of Missoula, I'm reminded that the famous win over Montana took place seven years ago tonight, 12/8/2006. My favorite UMass football road trip ever, and it's not close. Great memories...I was watching from my apartment in Little Rock, j...

I got out of the newspaper biz as quick as I could once I realized that the life of a journalist was not the life I wanted for myself, but the time I spent in it - starting with my time at the Collegian - prepared me to embrace the blood, sweat and tears needed to succeed in any profession.
