I am fairly sure it recently came up b/c UMass-Lowell (I think it is that one) is going DI so a distinction must be made. That is an assumption though as UNC is still either UNC or North Carolina for the most part and the other UNC's are the ones that use a differentiator.

However, this z8 troll is a moron on such astronomical levels that it's hard to avoid pointing that out. If UMass wins tonight, he'll be so eager to crow. If they lose, though, he'll retreat back to referring to Northeastern as "we" for the next week or two. Pathetic.
First off - I cannt apologize for z - apparently every team has its Muddy/Explorer Steve - he is the Umass Rep whether other Umass posters accept him or not.

With all due respect to the Bonnies, we (z28) should not be crowing about beating any 4-7 team. Hopefully we show up ready to play and, if so, we should win - although I expect it to be close and by single digits. Of the bottom 6 right now, I think you may be the best of them (including St Joe's) and I hope you get clear of the bottom 4.

Your A-10 post season hopes will probably come down to a head to head matchup with Dayton - personaly that would be a sweet win for me to watch the Bonnies get!

Good luck tonight Bonnies - I think you are going to need it!

Oh - I see - well actually no I don't - who cares? Thanks for the claification bdance

As for you (bdance), it bothers me that you are bothered by Bill Russell who is bothered by z and that this bothering makes Bill Russell act like a person that was not formerly acting like. Res not talking to you is bothersome to me as well, becasue you are bothered by that fact, and that it is also bothering that z "represents" our alma matter in a such a very bothersome way.... I only have one word for that Bothersome...

On to more important things bdance... how's the fishin'!

May the best team win. I think it's UMass, but it's a close call.
jesus, bdance. I thought you'd died. Or that you and Snipe had run off to chase skirt somewhere in Southeast Asia. I promise I'll keep in touch.

And Bill's still a good guy, just a little overly defensive of his alma mater at times.

Well, I guess there are also those times when he posts at 4:05 AM after a liter or more of his favorite rye...

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

Ooo, no sir, I had some bad experiences with the whiskey family in my youth. The mere smell of the stuff makes me ill now. Tequila, Rum, Beer, and Wine. That's about it. Oh, and Vodka. And almost forgot my beloved Gin. Used to be a straight Tanqueray and Tonic guy, but lately I've taken to Gin Martinis. Hated the first I tried, but they grew on me fast.

Another thing that bothers me is Fordham. I want to see them in the top half of the league, for the sake of their die hard fans around here. Pretty much everyone else has had at least a taste by now. Come on Fordham, my liver won't last forever!

Just using the official name just as the school does on its own web site. With Umass Lowell soon going D1, it makes even more sense to avoid possible confusion. With a vested interest as a Massachusetts resident whose taxes partially subsidize the Umass system, I want to make certain I use the proper names. From my experience living here for the last 20 years, it seems this practice is pretty common. Many add the location to distinguish which school: UMass-Amherst, UMass-Lowell, UMass-Boston, UMass-Dartmouth, UMass Med-Worcester.

Okay, now insulting our intelligence is a whole other matter. BS, RF. You know it, I know it. 87 knows it. No one around here needs the distinction.

Is UMass Amherst not the offical name of the school?

Why then is it such a big problem for some to use the proper name?

Why do you insist on being such a weenie? It's like Z8 calling SBU the Welders. Grow up. Have you EVER seen "UMass-Amherst" on a UMass basketball jersey? The sports teams at UMass are either UMass or Massachusetts. Loser.

This is far too accurate. I make some really idiotic posts after 3 AM... especially after losses.

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

Looking forward to the matchup, Gentlemen, and z8. I'll probably pour a couple of Glenmorangies as I sit back tonight to hopefully enjoy this one. As res points out, Bill will be pouring rye. Not sure about res. The difference is, I'll be putting the kids to bed afterwards, and falling asleep around 10pm. Bill will be still working on the rye and posting here around 2-3am.

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

If I'm still working on the rye at 2:00-3:00 on a Thursday morning, you'll know tonight was a Winn. I've found skipping work isn't exactly like skipping Dr. Simpson's English Romantics class.

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

See, this is why using the "ignore" feature is worthless. I bring up the A-10 forum and of course I'm not automatically signed in, and I have to see MF'ing Z8-Troll's "welders" comment. The Bonnies need this one badly. The fight for Brooklyn is in the late rounds and we're getting up off the canvas. Z8GFY.

How is using the official name, one which the school itself uses, the same as someone calling SBU the welders? I don't think SBU ever uses this term to refer to itself.

UMass-Amherst fans are sure sensitive about a name. I however would suggest that they start getting used to it. With UMass-Lowell going D1, it will start to get used much more frequently for athletics.

The attached apparel items (one of which is an varsity athletics program) available for sale on the web have Amherst in the name.
