Glad to see it should be dry tonight.. Low-40's to high-30's is a warm November night as far as I'm concerned. Only thing I haven't seen is what the wind is going to be like.. Hope it doesn't affect the kicking game too much :twisted:
I hope the wind is howlin' tonight. Can't possibly make our kicking game any worse and can only hurt their kicking game. I just hope the wind settles down when Froh wants to throw the ball :D

When was the last time UMASS FB was on an ESPN broadcast game in prime time? The last FCS playoff game? I don't recall you guys being on an actual MACtion broadcast the last two seasons, only on ESPN3, but I may be wrong.

Don't trust that site. They don't show actual seats sold. I'm guessing 7,000.

I'm leaving NJ now. See you guys tonight. GO UMASS!!
Guessing 11,367, hope it's much higher.
Caught a few minutes of the NIU/Toledo game and there appeared to be alot of empty seats on the home side. If Umass gets 11K, then it is/was a success

"12,000 tickets out" per the AD today. It will be interesting to see how many appear.

There's really no reason to not go to this game if you already have a ticket for it (extenuating circumstances notwithstanding). If 39 degrees is too cold for you then by golly you're living in the wrong part of the country.

Just back from the luncheon. The yellow lot was almost empty, shut down for the tailgating that can start there at 4 PM. However some students did not get the word to vacate the lot and 16 were having their cars towed. Bummer. The other lots on the way in were also closed down with tailgating starting there at 5 PM. Don't know why the difference in time. Coach was optimistic with everyone pretty much OK except the linebacker that has been injured. He could not express the importance of the game crowd wise for the national TV game. Did say that the game could be tough. Ball St. has been behind to other teams by over two TD's an have won comfortably.

Pretty sure it was the Montana (SF) and Appy State (championship) games in 2006. Both were Friday night games.

Last time out the students said it was "too hot" . . . I guess this time (if it's 39 degrees or so) it will be too cold!

A lot of students in the parking lot. We'll see if they go to the game.
