Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I understand the NCAA is pretty lax with the 15,000 attendance rule, but y'all I don't see how they'd grant waivers to three schools with football stadiums well below 15k in capacity. (UNH 11k, Maine 10k, URI 6.5k) In addition to those three, while Holy Cross meets the capacity requirements I don't...

Re: FIRE WALT BELL!

I posted this on September 15 after the Charlotte loss (0-3). I called Bell Molnar 2.0 and was admonished by the other board. I predicted 0-12 but Akron was a high school team. We are worse than all FBS, almost all FCS, most D2 and some D3 teams. The coach is so damn stubborn with that stupid hurry ...

Re: Sports Psychic: The switch will be flipped next year?

Timing is always the hardest part for us mentally talented individuals, but I believe there Is a strong chance the switch will indeed be flipped next year. Sure we may still only win 4 games next year, maybe 5, and maybe even 6, but the record wont matter next year because everything changes. The o...

Re: Game 8: vs UConn - 10/26/2019 (Homecoming Weekend)

I'm not a fan of the hurry-up and I do happen to believe it is leaving our defense gassed. But honestly, even if this defense was operating at peak performance on every snap, is there any evidence to suggest they'd be able to allow 33.4 fewer points per game? Because that's the reality. Our average...

Re: State of the Progam

I didn't watch any of the FIU game, but in the Akron game, we ran to the line with no huddle, and for the vast majority of time took a look at the defense, then Curtis checked out and looked to the sidelines where a play was signaled in on a sign that was held up. The ball was typically hiked with ...

Re: GAME 6 FIU 10/45/19

Eco, why do you persist here? We on the board are not the folks you are going to convince. Go try to build a consensus where there are not UMass fans!! Oh yes, you raise some interesting issues but I’m rooting for our guys to succeed at this level until I take my last breath. I don’t think I’m alon...

Re: State of the Progam

If I were in student government today, and I was in undergrad, I'd start bitching to state reps and senators. The entire $48M athletics expenditure is equivalent to 3.5% of UMass' budget. 1% of the system's budget. 0.1% of the state budget. And obviously the contribution from each of those entities...

Re: State of the Progam

I think we are all on the same page: we are not dropping football, no matter how bad we are. For me, I like the exposure and like any fan, I like seeing my alma mater in the vegas odds, but this FBS football thing is all about the $$$$, not wins. I hate to say it, but we've sucked for 8 years and ma...

Re: State of the Progam

We're never going to scrap football. We have games scheduled out 10 years from now. Bottom line, it helps UMass be a national brand and we're up to 64th in the USNWR. It's just sad that its 8 years in now and we still suck. Really thought the second half of 2017 was special. We could schedule games...

Re: State of the Progam

Understand your point but will say the following. Boston College has been very successful in the past, Doug Flute and the Orange Bowl and in the past few years. Don't think we should do a whole sale shove under the bus for a CHANCE to be respectable 3 years out of every 10 years. I do not care if i...

Re: GAME 5 9/28 AKRON

It was finally fun to be at a FB game. A couple of items worth mentioning. 2. Credit to Ally and the O line for closing out the game. When is the last time we had a 1 score lead, got the ball at the 25 and ran out the last 5 1/2 minutes to end the game? We had 3 subs on the O line and rushed for ov...

Re: GAME 5 9/28 AKRON

Curtis looked great and the defense was awesome with the pick-6. Hope Bell stays with Curtis the rest of the season. I guess I was wrong calling Bell Molnar 2.0 and if we beat UConn, then I'm in the Bell camp for sure.

We're going to break UConn's record of last year of giving up 605 points.
