There is an extra charge and I don't need NESN that much. I have MLB.com and the FB package for the PAt's

Berkie, maybe you can coordinate a trip up to pickup some of that kielbasa with a gameday. 2 birds one stone :)

ESPN gave us an 8% chance of making a bowl game this year.

While it is great that UMass has a tv deal, doesn't that impact folks actually attending the game? We'll be able to figure out the economics based on the quality and frequency of ads. If we see a lot of 'UMass hotel 'ads, my bet is that UMass is losing a lot of live bodies in the stadium.
I won't be able to give you an answer to this as I'll be at the games.

I can’t speak for football, but I know the hockey broadcasts have a significant impact on recruiting. Many UMass hockey games over the last few years have been picked up by TSN (Canada’s version of ESPN) and broadcast across many recruiting hotbeds.

Don't know where this belongs, but some may find it of interest. "Unite the Masses" is the morning line favorite in today's seventh race at Arlington Park in Chicago. Before it was claimed last time out, I believe the horse was owned by Paul Manganaro, a former Minuteman,a Director of the Gridiron Club, and a big time financial supporter of UMass football. Paul, thanks for helping the football program, and good luck in your racing endeavors.

Am not familiar with "Spooky Express", but this is a pretty accurate take on our team for this season. A couple of mistakes but not too bad.

this is a reasonable evaluation given the number of question marks going into this season. My maroon tinted glasses are telling me 5 wins might be attainable.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

So it appears the broadcast crew will consist of Josh Maurer, Andy Gresh, and Brandon London.

Mailed on Friday (8-16). Arrived a with UMass-Black UMass flag and the parking passes a nice UMass-Green. An updated map for the Minuteman March, which now appears to be about 100 yards.
