One reason we shouldn't bring in UMass
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/bl...53835.post

Minutemen ranked 123

I know app was ranked 126 and geo south 124 and geo state was also already ranked, but app and geo south get a pass from most people because they are in their FBS transitional. Geo state as we all know is way young with a coach many see good things in. Umass has been around a little longer and isn't in conference yet no point in adding another program with a bad ranking and I know they all would but I believe umass is in a different category. Would rather add a school from FCS that has unknown potential then a FBS school that is known and lacks promise.

Clearly their two years in FBS make them a known and proven school.

I'm sorry just not a fan of adding another FBS spread school in the worst 10. Don't think that's all that disagreeable especially since they are way out of footprint

One reason we shouldn't bring in UMass
I've never considered the US sun belt to extend from as far north east as Massachusetts and as far north west as Idaho geographically speaking the sun belt should be southeast and southwest, id probably rather we add a school in SoCal just so our name isn't so geographically wrong

I'm just a geography nerd so it erks me that erks me as well. Conferences with the number of schools in the name are annoying as well when they don't actually have that number

I said southeast to southwest, I know some don't consider Missouri southern but I think historically they have seemed more southern then any other geographical region

Very nice, this can account for about 90% of the threads we see these days.

Its only April to Aug 1st but seems to last decades. My current favorite thread is the "Aresco Silence on Autonomy Agenda" thread on the AAC board. Truly epic level of delusion that can only be generated by the offseason.

I experienced two summers in Missouri, both averaged 95 or greater I consider Missouri sunny enough

This is all fair game. Charlie Molnar was a career assistant coach and when everyone from our A list turned us down, he was hired. The guy pissed everyone off, players, his own recruits were transferring etc.

Then a UMass donor, the same who donated 2.5 Mill to the Press and Skybox donated the 880k buyout of Molnar contract.

Mark Whipple accepted the job, who coached us to the 1998 FCS Championship game, coached in the NFL and Miami.

We will be better, but our offensive line looked terrible in the spring game, all freshmen. The rest looked good and most next year players are not on campus. That includes Marshall's quarterback Blake Frohnapfel and a Penn State WR.

Regarding attendance, we went from 10k to 15K with terrible teams. Look for another large boost to attendance this year.

We open with Boston College and will have 3 games on campus. The Performance Center will open in July and this is a video with it still under construction.





Again all the above is fair game.

Well it is possible we are simply expanding the term Sun Belt.....to a more literal meaning......a place where the Sun Shines......while Idaho and UMass are technically above what we think of Sun Belt.....the Sun Does shine there too.....So We As THE Sun Belt......could go anywhere......Like Cancun.....or Yellowknife....or for that matter Alaska most parts of the year.....except those long days.....where there is no sun.....so I guess Alaska and the Northwest Territories are out......but dang we must not be so critical......so what if we use to have a footprint.....now we have more of a size Gazillion Hoof print..

People forget that UMass won a 1-AA NC under Whipple...This does not mean that UMass would win a NC in FBS, but it does mean that Whipple's homecoming could lead to some success in football, thus making the Minutemen look more attractive to a conference like the AAC.
