Re: FBS, CFP, and Conference Media Contracts

Actually we have at least TWO bye weeks next year: between Buffalo & Troy, Bowling Green & Missouri. We need 2 more games in 2025.

Re: FBS, CFP, and Conference Media Contracts

The problem with being the only indy or with UCant is that scheduling becomes near impossible in November and multiple bye weeks. 2025 we have 3 bye weeks.

Re: Conference Realignment

I picture Zoomass just working Umass football discussions into everyday conversation. He’s out there telling random people if Puma doesn’t get hurt against an SEC team Umass would have gone to a bowl last year. Pretty sure he’s made that point hundreds of times here. Nah, when not posting here he's...

Re: FBS, CFP, and Conference Media Contracts

Think it's time to have a central FBS place to post media contracts and FBS distribution information. Will start with a series of post as the early CFP link now goes to an updated link and will do this one from memory. FBS distribution was set with 64.5% going to power conferences, which distribute...

Re: 2024 Season

The problem with our situation is that we need to get into ANY conference ASAP. Its not 1980 with 40 indy's. It's really just us & UCant and UCant is pretty much all set. they are in a Power basketball conf and actually have complete schedules WITHOUT Army and Liberty. Bam and the Chancellor sho...

Re: 2024 Season

that's not the only problem: it's doubtful we play Army again and Liberty is still scheduled (they are in a conference now too). 11 games in 2024 and 10 in 2025 probably 8, since it includes Army & Liberty. If Bam & the Chancellor don't get us in a conference SOMEWHERE........I think it's S...

Re: 2024 Season

Most likely a second FCS team in place of Army. Actually wouldn't be bad :P :P :P My son is picking out colleges (he's in high school) and of course it's P5 schools..... :lol: :lol: :lol: UMass is sort of bad luck/good luck. Bad luck in that we have had 2 of the worst head coaches. Good luck in that...

Re: 2024 Season

With the Army home game gone, do you think we'll play on the road, a 4th P5 team, a second FCS home game? My guess from last week twitter feed is perhaps UNLV, but looks filled with Oregon State. https://fbschedules.com/ncaa/unlv/ that's not the only problem: it's doubtful we play Army again and Li...

Re: Conference Realignment

The remainder of the Army deal will be cancelled but Army is going to honor two trips to Amherst between now and 2028 in order to even out the games played for the two sides. That could include next season, we don't yet know. UMass, so long as they are an FBS Indy, are not letting Liberty out of th...

Re: Conference Realignment

Looking back at this whole FBS "big boy" football thing: McCutcheon didn't give a shit (he was retiring anyway) and hired Molnar. If he only hired Neal Brown instead, things could have been a lot better. I won't even get into the Coach Bell Gomer Pyle thing...........still pisses me off t...

Re: Conference Realignment

Army is off our 2024 (and beyond) schedule. Liberty soon to follow. We only have 10 games now for next year. :x :( :( :(
