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 :( :( :(

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 th...

Re: Conference Realignment

You never know what is going on behind the scenes with C-USA and MAC realignment. Last year was great but unfortunately we played Auburn #2 game and Puma got hurt. We honest to God if we didn't play a P5 until later in the season could have beaten New Mex. and Ark State and Miami (OH). If you look ...

Re: Conference Realignment

Why are we making pretend that we are actually going to pull the trigger and join CUSA? We've fucked this up for over a decade and they have the convenient excuse of "We can't join CUSA because there is no home for field hockey" or some other BS. All I can say is that it better happen. I ...

Re: Game 9, 2023-24: vs Georgia Tech (DHC, 12/21)

^ agree. Could definitely use another big. Rebounding was not very good yesterday. Dumb User Name!!!! Happy New Year!!!! You've been awfully quiet in the football section???? Maybe beating NMSU and Army quieted you down with the "FCS/drop football" nonsense. Ooops: Conf USA is rumored to ...

Re: Conference Realignment

we're going to have a real problem because our future schedules include Army and Liberty and those games are 99% NOT going to be played. that's for the NEXT 4 seasons. :(

Re: Conference Realignment

sounds like C-USA is a done deal. If we blow this off, then it's looking like 1AA is in the future. After this year, FBS indy's are only us and UCant. UConn could actually swing it all by themselves because the Big East TV $$$$ is mega. UCant has complete schedules thru 2027.

Re: Conference Realignment

He has been told for the last years that all sports was a no go. He also is not the one to make the decision. The deal is likely already, and will be announced in the spring. That was strongly implied in the update video from a few weeks ago. What might be the reasoning for delaying an announcement...

Re: Conference Realignment

https://bleacherreport.com/articles/625534-the-15-worst-college-football-stadiums-in-the-country Apparently it could be worse. That article was written in 2011, before UMass went FBS. I have little doubt we'd be at or near #1 if that had been written any time in the past 10 years. Love the predicti...

Re: 2024 Season

2-2 to start the season. EMU we can win at home and FCS Wagner should both be wins. Then maybe 1 or 2 more but second half of the season is ridiculous.

Re: The football future poll

Just google and read "UMass football crosses the Rubicon" written in 2013. That succinctly explains it. Found that. https://www.wbur.org/cognoscenti/2013/12/05/college-football-peter-may I'll read it further over lunch. At 10 years old, is there any part of that piece's general premise th...

Re: 2023 Game 12: UConn

It is headed in right direction. started from scratch and could have won 6 or 7 games in year 2 if the QB doesnt get hurt. We didnt have a backup qb ready to go so yes i can use that as an excuse.. It was a killer for the season Where are you getting the 6 or 7 wins with the schedule we played? The...

Re: 2023 Game 12: UConn

Got a grip. Just trying to get some perspective. This is year 2 of Brown II. If we can't say the program is headed in the right direction, it ain't gonna happen. Seems like consensus is + It is headed in right direction. started from scratch and could have won 6 or 7 games in year 2 if the QB doesn...

Re: The football future poll

Let me preface by saying I am a UConn fan so I really don't care what you guys do. However, I noticed you do not have a poll for your (Steve's) MAC discussion. I will mention I put a poll on the Boneyard regarding UConn's conference affiliation for football (independent vs. MAC/CUSA football-only)....
