I'd like to see team Card Photos on your UMass 2020 Football Roster and Coach Site!
Disclaimer: Sorry this is kinda long but this "fake news" attempt needed to be addressed. Coach Bell, I'm sorry for people like this but I wanted you to be aware of this. I also wanted you to know you have our, my son and I, full 100% support. This was my response to his hate mongering. Jim Sells, you should be ashamed of yourself for your attitude and for wrongfully trying to influence readers' opinion. This is the actual and complete article that you only provided a small snipet so that people would misunderstand and wrongfully judge this Head Coach. Hope you learn something. The gest of it was that critizing this coach who told the truth and did the right thing is truly unfair based on this snipet, partial statement.. People who judge, namecall and have pre-determined dislike for somebody because he compared 2 difficult life events is simply unfair so I felt you deserved a Fatherly tongue lashing and education of what a REAL MAN is. In a nut shell, he actually should be given respect and gratitude for being honest, emotional and a caring REAL person. He's had 8 years to mourn, grieve, miss, make peace with these tradgedies and recollect himself. Get busy dying or get busy living. I truly believe he simply used his parents deaths as a comparison because those were probably the most painful life events that he has experienced so he wanted to emphasize, for the interviewer, what pain, sadeness and hurt this current "open wound" and cancellation has caused. Also, please understand that this wasn't his decision, it was AD Ryan Bamford and University Chancellor Kumble R. Subbaswamy. But of course they wouldn't get their hands dirty so they made Coach Bell do their dirty work and tell the team. With a heavy heart he had to tell 98 players, 27 coaches and staff, multiple assisstants and numerous student aids that they had cancelled the 2020 Football season. Shortly after the team meeting he was asked about the situation with the team and the season cancellation. He didn't avoid, side step or deflect; instead he answered truthfully, emotionally, patiently, carried hisself like a true professional and showed true and genuine integrity. Though a heavy heart, he was still able to display what a real man is and should be. Like or dislike Coach Bell, he deserves gratitude and respect for demonstrating how to be a genuine person. Head Coach Walt Bell, if this passes your desk, know that you did a great job with what you were given to deal with. And, you did an even more awesome and great job being true to yourself. I always have watched UMass Basketball due to my all-time favorite player, the great Julius "Dr. J" Erving. So, already being a fan of the school, now a fan of Head Coach Bell, I will definitely be rooting for and watching UMass. His concern was totally for everyone affected, his University and all the surrounding communities that will be losing revenue and jobs. He wasn't thinking about his salary. Walt Bell, thank you and I'm proud of you for being REAL! Jim Sells, he compared all this hurt that the UMass family is experiencing to his parents deaths because those are the two life events that caused him the most pain and sadness, so he used those passings to emphazise the severety of this cancellation. You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to make incorrect suggestions and assumptions. He in no way implied or meant that the loss of his parents were any less important. Coach Bell, stand tall, know that we appreciate you and you have my support, 100%. Thank you Coach Walt Bell. Coach Bell, I apologize for people like this that is trying to spread discord and hate. You have our, my son and I, full support and I will always defend a righteous person who is true to himself and is genuinely REAL. Thank you Head Coach Walt Bell.

Does anyone know how Isaiah Rodgers is doing?
You know what is bad for the UMass brand? Dan Shaughnessy. Has he written a positive story about UMass sports in 30 years. PLEASE RETIRE! Your negativity is tiring.
Are there discounted tickets available for Umass Alumni to attend away games?
As a season ticket holder.... I would like to know where your Flagship posts are today? I also want to know, when are you going to let 1 of the young QBโ€™s play. For Brito is a joke Enough is enough!
31 points allowed in the 1st half?? Time to look for a new defensive coordinator...
Umass football fans are ride or die
๐ŸˆWith New England rival UConn rejoining the Big East, time for Division 1 wannabe UMASS to attempt to join a legitimate regional conference and attempt to finally legitimize its Bowl -Division -competitive aspirations!!๐Ÿˆ
It's about time Whipple got fired. He was a joke his whole career. Hopefully coach Bell is a program builder that can give UMass the Division 1 team they deserve
