Yes, the basketball team hasn't been relevant to those who don't watch college basketball. That is correct. If the extent of your knowledge of college basketball is the 68 team bracket, you're right more »

Yes, they're paying the cost of opening the place up and securing it for games...a cost they'd incur playing in their own stadium. Nice job nit-picking my reply and ignoring the actual point though. more »

Do a little research. It is all funded privately. You also may notice a few large scale donations made that were directly motivated by the move. Also, no one in MA has an ounce to complain about on more »

It's amazing that someone who would take the time to voice an opinion on this would not understand the basics of the Foxboro situation. They didn't choose to play there because they thought it would more »

The first line "Contrary to popular local opinion, college sports do actually exist outside of the Beanpot..." should read "Contrary to the Boston media's opinion...". Most sports fans I know in Mass more »

Three hours ago I read an article on wbur.org citing a telecom expert logically explaining why the rings are not evidence of the phones being on. It is perfectly clear that it's no indication the pho more »

Big game Sunday, Go U! Let's lock up a first round bye in Brooklyn. Playing for NCAA seeding now, this is great.

Almost all FBS schools play one FCS opponent per season, because one win versus an FCS team counts towards bowl eligibility. The FCS team must be a full scholarship program. Holy Cross and the Patri more »

Want UMass coverage from the globe? Wait until they lose a couple. The globe will be all over that so fast it'll make your head spin.

On Saturday I'll be watching St. Bonaventure at #19 UMass on NBC Sports. 12:30pm start, way before football. Go U.

NESN is picking it up. It may not be reflected in the guide yet, they just announced it yesterday. It'll come on in progress after their noon game if that runs past 2pm. Fox Sports college channel on more »

Exactly! It's much easier to say "this isn't a college sports region" and write another article about Gronk's knee or Welker's return to Foxboro. The Globe thinks we're all SNL type parody "Boston M more »

Nice road win, keep it going.

GO UMASS. Huge week.
Posted 12/04/2013 10:20:24 EST
That is what "UMass" or "Massachusetts" means, yes. UMass followed by a hyphen and the word Dartmouth, Lowell, or Boston refers to the other system universities.

ESPN had the article as the third or fourth headline on it's main page last night. That's ESPN picking out of all the sports going on in the world last night. And Boston media ignores it completely, more »

Well the globe was stunned by this outcome...they were the only ones stunned, so maybe they'll start paying more attention. Vegas had UMass as 4 point dogs on a neutral court, so they weren't stunned more »

For the folks that think holding would have been a common sense middle ground call, you've got to realize it doesn't apply because the ball was in the air when the contact occurred. the five yard, au more »

Jeff, do you feel congress should be able to use the budget process as a referendum on every law? If so, what is the point of the legislative process?

Hey Globe, I pay for this site so I get some real news reporting not TMZ / boston.com "news" about what somebody said and how so and so reacted. We know Bucholz didn't cheat because the people who wo more »

This would definitely be the first time someone on welfare killed anyone. If they qualified for assistance they got it, and it's besides the point of what these two did. Please think about the people more »

It would have been nice to get over the hurdle this year, certainly frustrating. But if they didn't lose their top scorer to an ACL the first week of January there's no doubt they'd have gotten the o more »

There we at least four. the globe wipes it out so it looks like no one cares about UMass basketball. Nice escape last night in a game when they were lost on defense and didn't box anyone out. GW is more »
Posted 03/15/2013 08:00:38 EDT
Agree. They were lost the first five minutes. And stayed lost on defense most of the night, chasing guys and running into picks everywhere. Never boxing out. Won that game by having more seasoned more »
