He's a nice guy I know but its time for Morris to go. Hes good for one upset a year and a .500 record. we suprised UNH last year at homecoming and caught a william and mary team asleep this year to start the year. its just not what umass football is about. we go to JMU next week that should be ugly as well. We are fighting for a .500 record now it wont get any easier.

the game wasnt nearly as disgraceful as the umass students at the game. Both myself and my wife are grads and after that I hope they cancel this series. arrests, kids thrown out of the game, throwing up in the parking lot and just out of control students and alums. I bet the state police had a field day giving out dui's after the game. we disgraced the university, the football game I will get over. we didnt play well.

well the coaching staff is at a point where they have to save jobs for next year now. so do they start Hill next week at jmu? havens wasnt the reason they lost but this staff will be unemployed next year if no progess is made. hill is the chip for them to come back. I say Hill starts next week or he will start at home vs maine. jmu is a good football team.
