The argument against UMass is that they don't bring enough to the table for them to get a piece of the conference pie. It is the same argument that we won't be going to the Big 10 in the foreseeable future. Both teams need a seismic event to happen.While the geographic proximity is tempting, it would dampen recruiting and, in a sense, allow UMass to draw closer competitively with UConn. No thanks. Playing the Minutemen as an OOC opponent is fine annually--not as a conference foe.
I like playing UMass. We just need to be better.
