Re: The Massachusetts Collective - NIL initiative

Do keep in mind that your donations to t U may be tax deductible, which likely means more to higher bracket taxpayers. e.g.: you're in, say, the 24% F.I.T. bracket this year, and you qualify for a 100% deduction.

Re: Coach Frank Martin

MassLive's coverage of UM has turned to shit recently. They don't have a staffer on our beat anymore, but they do sometimes run photos by longtime photographer J Anthony Roberts. He got a good one of Frank in game-mode (vs Rhody on the 14th) https://www.masslive.com/resizer/ddwmYZcnnjN7t0dOwaHKa_cw...
