Why should we put free tape out there for others schools to see.

^ I believe that Spring Games have been broadcast on ESPN, Big10 Network, SEC Network, ACC Network, Big12 Network, among others....were you not able to reach those schools to explain the dangers of having their Spring Games broadcast?

You have to be kidding...So all those others years that they streamed the game they weren't worried but now they are. The more eyes on UMass football the better, for family members, fans, football alums--you know those poor souls that support the program.

Random. Maybe they are going to your spam mailbox.
No. There is a glitch with the email system. I talked to Warren about it. Some email servers, like spectrum, for me deny some emails from bulk mail. I needed to know the domain the UMass emails were coming from and mark it safe. Stupid thing is I had no idea the mails were sent.

Now, they have created animosity with people who support the team through season tickets, but don’t belong to the “Look How Important I Am” booster club! Whipped did an awful job of promoting his team and creating a connection to the community and it looks like Bellrung is doing a worse job.
I went today and have gone in the past. There were many family members for players in the stands today. Definitely more people could have come. How many, I’m not sure. I don’t think all ST holders would have been able to fit with the people there today. Bell’s remarks after the scrimmage made it clear they were still worried about covid spread even with families there. Considering there were no announcers, the soundtrack was a weird mix of R and B and 70s adult contemporary music while the scrimmage was occurring, my guess is no one was going to staff a stream.

Congratulations to Larnel!
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

Why is it so hard to find out how the spring game came out?

^

I have searched the Athletic site here and on Facebook several times since this morning and have not found any write up about the spring game. I would appreciate if you would provide me with a link to where you say the write up exists. Thank you in advance.

It’s weird. I got an email from the gridiron club in December....Oh well.
I actually called about it because I was a little ticked that I wasn't included in the spring game email. They apologized and sent me the information after I check in.

Watched the interview with Bell and the New England Football Journal and it was more of the same recruiter/car salesman talk. Lots of excuses for the losing the past three years while I, and others saw poor coaching as a large factor. He didn't mention Alex Miller when talking about new coaches, which I felt was strange being that he will have a huge role in the program and has already has in recruiting.

Didn't like when Bell caught an attitude when he was asked if they would score more then 21 pts for the season (scored 12 last season). Putting the person down by saying "they won the internet from behind their computer," when it is a fair but tough question after last season. Bell acts like he has been a great coach in his past, when he's never actually done anything yet of note as a coach.

This season will be good barometer to see if he can actually coach on the offensive side of the ball with his recruited players.
