UMass needs a thread as they are the new team to watch in Hockey East and even nationally, now that they have moved up the rankings to #9, deservedly so.

It's been awhile since there has been an active UMass thread. Welcome. Greg Carvel appears to be on the brink of turning this program around.
Now if only there were some UMass fans....
"Through the years, we ever will acclaim........"
It surprises me that with such a large school that there hasn't been a thread here for a while. Maybe because they were so bad for so long. But things have certainly changed recently with Carvel and the players he has brought in. They are a force to be reckoned with this year and into the near future at least.
So, now we have a proxy thread?
Reminds of a fraternity canine mascot at UNH pulling a 4.0 for four years of premed courses in the early 1970s, only to be deterred from a career in medicine by a slip up in his med school exams.
Maybe there’s no UMass fans on here because there’s nobody worth talking to on this god forsaken web site
I would guess that the administration promised resources for Carvel when he was hired. Umass has an excellent facility, but always placed more value on supporting basketball and football.
Where are Wardy. Karen, Alan etc.?
Only calling them NewMass from this point forward
UMass was always the cellar dweller in Hockey East but the last few years they have certainly turned it around. Now the football and basketball teams are taking a back seat to them. Coach Carvel turned it around for St. Lawrence as well and now Jacob Pritchard, former recruit and player there, has joined him here as well. They have a tough week ahead with home and home with Providence, should be two great games.
And Alan's not far off on his assessment above.

All great men are dead and I'm not feeling well.
A Margarita! in every hand and another Margarita! in the other hand!
And stay off the lawn!
Hope everyone who is not at the game with Providence will be watching on NESN tonight. Should prove to be a good one.
Tonight will tell if the umass surge is real.
