Re: Umass and UConn Conference USA

Best part of the UConn situation is that they can't do a damn thing about it, and its getting worse!!! CT is a crappy little state with rapidly declining tax revenues. Pretty soon the CT legislature will have to do some major cuts.

Re: UConn to Big East 2020

First off, saturday's news was awesome!!!! (I had my 40th high school reunion then went to Encore casino Sunday at 10AM). UConn leaving the AAC was predictable but here's another prediction: good chance they drop down to FCS or drop completely. They don't even have an on-campus stadium. Connecticut'...

Hate to say it: Andy is not going to be picked until the 6th or 7th round, if at all........there's no justice!!!

Re: NCAA Tournament 2019

I don't want to jinx this, but I think UMass actually takes the national championship. Call me crazy, but the way the Final Four boiled down to 2 teams that had never gone to the title game before............ Just amazing that the hockey budget is a fraction of the football budget and look at the re...

Re: Whip Gone?

Many former chancellors at UMass have said that we need FBS football. They are right & I love the way people on this board keep pissing and moaning that we went to FBS. I have an idea: let’s drop the sport or go back to FCS. We went FBS because it was the right thing to do. Major national univer...

Re: Whip Gone?

^^^ I do love how you continue to fabricate that the increase in applications to attend UMass is related to moving up to FBS. I’m not going to waste my time discussing why out of state applications are up, but can assure you it has little or nothing to do with FBS football. I want UMass to succeed ...

Re: Whip Gone?

^ Except that your analysis seems to ignore how poor a financial model FCS football is. FCS was no more sustainable for UMass, and the upside is/was significantly lower than FBS. My condolences about the Whipple firing by the way. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. Yes of course this "analysis...

Re: BYU Game - Nov 10th 12:00 pm

This isn’t the same BYU as last year. Excellent wins last 2 weeks but BYU is far better than either uconn or liberty. Uconn is the worst team in fbs and we had liberty at home. We have had a terrible experience at Gillette over the years.

Re: State of the Progam

Okay but you still haven't answered my original question... Among other things, Basketball can actually succeed in New England. That's great. I hope we can build a strong basketball program again. But what makes you believe football can't work in New England? What makes New England unique from ever...

Re: State of the Progam

The discussion on UMASS applicants and commits, vis a vis FBS, is inane. The common app, and its acceptance as the form for admissions at 99%+ of colleges is the lead here, by far. The yield rate is so low at Ivies as in, 'why not apply to Yale?', it has been driven artificially low at the most sel...

Re: State of the Progam

UMass has always been a "safety school", but that's not a bad thing. We're not a top 20 national university like Harvard, Yale, Georgetown, Stanford. But so what. We're the largest state university in New England. We're #70 in USNWR rankings. My beef is with people saying "UMass shoul...

Re: State of the Progam

That’s wrong. There is nothing to substantiate that comment. Applications have increased since the upgrade. We have moved up in national academic rankings since 2012. To say moving to FBS was a bad idea is inane and there is no evidence of that. As I posted before there is zero correlation between ...
