So sad that UMASS ignored Dick MacPherson for three decades, never honoring or bringing back a guy who won big, record wise and with the fan. UMASS has ignored Dr.J for the last 20 years, if they wait much longer, they will be too late honoring him. Pathetic.

UMASS fires the SID,who designed the horrible website. Now we have no SID and a horrible website! Why can't we expect competence?

Marcus Odiah no longer listed on roster. Down to four deep at RB. Concerning particularly when camp has only begun.

UMASS does tend to ignore their greatest alumni in the sporting world, Erving, Pitino, to name a couple. Sad that they waited for Clarence Brooks to die, before honoring him.
