Re: Game 18 (2015-16): Union

Thanks for reading Bugman. It's posted now (link in my sig) if you're interested. Will post a closer look at the upcoming schedule in the second half tomorrow night.

Re: Game 19 (2015-16): U.S. National Junior Team

Speaking of the US Junior National Team and players bolting to the OHL, Friday will be a chance for UMass fans to see Alex DeBrincat, who decommitted from UMass in Spring of 2014 and will likely be a 1st round draft pick

Re: Game 18 (2015-16): Union

Short story: Mick has yet to show that he can get the most out of his players and has a system that has de-emphasized defensive play to the detriment of wins and losses. Long story: I'll be posting my midseason review tonight and potentially tomorrow *shameless plug*.

Re: Game 18 (2015-16): Union

Just a reminder that Micheletto has yet to match the 13 wins/.431 win percentage that disappointed us so much in Toot's last season at UMass.

Re: State of the Hockey Program

Marshmont, UMass pays a very competitive salary, I'm not sure why you keep posting they don't. Mick made about $237K last year. Dick UMile made $242K. Kevin Sneddon makes $241K. Red Gendron $205K. Mike Cavanaugh $200K. Norm Bazin's original contract paid him around $243K, but last year made $323K du...

I thought 78 WAS our crappy fanbase? :lol:

Re: Game 10 (2015-16): Merrimack

Can someone confirm that the hockey pep band will be making the debut at this game? All I can find is a note from Dan Malone http://www.masslive.com/umasshockey/index.ssf/2015/10/umass_hockey_quick_hits_3.html but nothing specific on Bamford's twitter (then again, I could have missed it since I don...

Re: Game 7 (2015-16): Boston College

When you ask your defensemen to intentionally play out of position, something like that is bound to happen.

Re: Game 7 (2015-16): Boston College

I disagree with the women's basketball comparison. The last five national champions have been Minnesota-Duluth, BC, Yale, Union, Providence. It's not like the old days when it was just BC, BU, NoDak, Minnesota, and Michigan winning every year. Providence, Lowell, and Quinnipiac are currently top 5 t...

Re: Games 5 & 6 (2015-16): Capital City Classic

I enjoyed our nickname in this tweet last night: "The Fighting Triangles" Mike Eidelbes @INCH 1 hour ago F Dennis Kravchenko scored 2 goals in UMass’s win vs Maine today. He’s got 7 in 5 games for the Fighting Triangles. That’s pretty good. :wink: Mike used to run the Inside College Hocke...

Re: Game 3 (2015-16): Sacred Heart

Attendance last year was the lowest since 2001-02. I'd be thrilled with 4K against Sacred Heart.

Re: Venue change

Count me as someone who, if we have 15K-17K people willing to pay to watch UMass football, couldn't care less if there's room leftover for band day. It was a nice thing when there was free capacity, but it should never, ever dictate what's best for the football program.

Yeah, there seemed to be chipped concrete everywhere. I've never seen it like that before. This was my row in 16. It was a little concerning.
