Re: UConn losing $40M a year on sports - cut sports?

Woooaaaah, you throw in economics as sort of a 'jock major'? I have rarely seen any varsity athletes in economics classes for the past 15 years, except perhaps introductory classes.

Re: New 2022 Playin rules

Latest Inside Lacrosse bracketology has CAA AQ as one of the 4 'playin' teams, and names Towson for the moment as the AQ, with the winner facing Maryland. We'll see but CAA is definitely having a down year across the conference. https://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/inside-lacrosse-bracketology-202...

Re: Game 11 - Fairfield visits UMass Saturday April 16 3:30 pm

Meltdown in second half, too bad. Fairfield scored like 9 goals in a row from late 2nd and 3rd quarter. UM Defense was not on point today, UM goalie was left to defend the entire goal from less than 5 yards away with terrific 'skip' passes over the D to an uncovered Fairfield, not Fordham, attack. I...

Re: UMass enters Top 20 in Media Poll

Well after our desultory performance, we are no longer listed in the Top 25. No CAA team is listed either.

Ivies (6 teams!!) dominate the Top 20 rankings.
