In response to mkelly1984's comment:
Umass is ranked 21st in the AP this week and there isn't a single mention of it anywhere in the globe or on boston.com. But they still have the article about BC winning the hockey title from two years ago on their college sports page. I know Umass hasn't played in a week but if this was BC they would have six articles about how they are ranked in top 25. Hoping for another win tonight against an inferior Eastern Michigan team. Should force the Globe to start writing about them.
The only articles I've seen about UMass are the AP articles. You would never know UMass is the state university because other state schools get the same coverage using AP in the Globe and Boston.com. Nothing against BC but they are not the state's university. Yet even though they are not as good as UMass they get the coverage. But it is early and if UMass keeps winning and climbing in the poles this too will change.
Globe is what it is, a rag sheet, not worthy of cyber space. Snow Queens' at BC are getting pretty terrible in D1 athletics each year. UMASS is an out, what's wrong with them up there in the fridgid kindom of Nowhereville.
LOL You kind of remind me of the Boston press and media because they use to call the area Loserville before the Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins, and Celtics started to win all those championships since 2001. My how times have changed.
But it's not a kindom of Nowhereville or Loserville. It happens to have some of the best educational systems in the world that produces research, creative thinking, entrepreneurs, not to mention the worlds best hospitals. We just happen to have some great professional sport teams to go along with the excellent quality of life we have here.
Time will tell if Coach Kellogg has the UMass program heading in the right direction. If nothing else they are a fun team to watch.
