    Thank you nrsoccer for providing a link showing the real picture of UMass football today; visual proof that it is alive and well.

    What a wonderful story about a kid that has the skills and desire to turn his life around, and kudos to UMass for helping him to find his way. These are the kind of stories that I enjoy reading in the more »

    I saw the YES concert last night and if anyone was wondering if they are as good as they once were, the answer is a resounding YES! I have been to a lot of concerts over the years and this was right u more »

    Shaughnessy’s article criticizes UMass for trying to make the leap to FBS level football because, as he sees it, Boston is a Pro sports town. UMass would love to get the support of the Boston media, more »

    If you actually read the article, "doesitmatter", you will see that they are called permaculture gardens. Also the article states that Harb and his students are establishing new permaculture gardens e more »

    I am both a UMass Amherst alumnus (BS 1976) and parent of a current UMass Amherst sophomore. In the past few years, I have written to Dr. Holub and had the opportunity to meet him on several occasions more »

    Every time that you bring up this topic I fail to understand your point, and what you expect the universities to do about the problem as you see it. Clearly the reason why the graduation rates are so more »

    Perhaps the name should change to reflect their new reality - Not Big Not East. It appears to be an act of desperation to patch together disenfranchised schools across the country that have nothing in more »

    Derrick Jackson's mantra is for the universities to graduate black and white athletes they recruit at the same rate. This can be a problem if they are recruited solely for their athleticism and they a more »

    I wrote to Dr. Holub last year and was very pleased that I received an immediate reply. I found him to be friendly, caring and informative. About 6 months ago I then had the opportunity to meet him in more »

    Is this another Boston Globe smear article on UMass from the illustrious Tracy Jan? What we have is a front page article in the Sunday Glove that rumours what might happen, based on speculation by tho more »

    Bob Kraft has proven himself repeatedly as a class guy that knows how to make the impossible happen. He is an incredible philanthropist with brilliant business acumen and we are so fortunate to have h more »

    Severin was an obnoxious, self absorbed blowhard and his show offered absolutely nothing of value or interest. The only question I would ask is what took WTKK so long to fire him? Didn't they ever lis more »

    In 1972 I was rejected by UMass Amherst and so I attended to Bridgewater State. At the time, I needed a 2.75 to transfer to UMass Amherst in my junior year. I was very excited that I made it and enjoy more »

    Harvard deserved an at large bid if for no other reason than the fact that the team tied for the top of the Ivy League with an RPI of 35. They did it with real students that are actually in college to more »

    Thank you redsox01 for providing excellent insight; you made a number of key points. It is easy to dump on the coach when we don't see the immediate progress we would like. I also still believe Coach more »

    I really hope Coach Kellogg can get it together. I believe he is the right guy for the position since he was a great player for UMass, learned from Coach Calipari as a player and as an assistant coach more »

    I was at the game and can honestly say that I have never seen the Minutemen play worse. CCSU totally dominated the game even though they were obviously the shorter team. They passed the ball like a we more »

    I am truly amazed at how far the Boston Globe will go to malign UMass. Each article is arrogantly written by Tracy Jan with the backing of her editors. To those of us that know the university well, ar more »

    I am perplexed by Jackson’s semi-annual complaint. The argument made is that the universities are letting down their “student athletes” in football and basketball (especially the black athletes) more »

    If I were John Marinatto, the commissioner of the Big East, I would take notice that the University of Massachusetts, Amherst has over 200,000 alumni that live in the Boston area.  So when UMass playe more »

    I am really starting to recognize that there really is a reason for the Big East to take UMass into the league, and that is a real change from my previous thoughts. UMass has over 200,000 alumni from more »

    Unfortunately for Marty Meehan, Billy Bulger preceded him as University of Massachusetts President. While it may not be fair to paint all politicians with the same brush, it is hard to believe after a more »

    This has clearly been the worst election season money can buy. Thank you Kevin for putting it into perspective. They should all go to prison with their strategists and ad agencies. I do not understand more »

    There are many mis-statements by Tracy Jan and those that added their comments. To start with, UMass is already ranked among the top universities in the world, above UConn and Boston College in the wo more »
