I also donated, out of loyalty to the program. I'll feel better about my donation when we hear about a new assistant coach (a GOOD assistant coach) and a couple of freshmen recruits. I don't want to see any more transfers unless they have 3 years left.

Me too. I don’t give a shit if cheerleading has more donors. These things tend to be very targeted and my guess is parents and friends are being enlisted by some groups more than others, especially sports and activities that don’t have as much of a baseline budget.

Thanks for the update. Someone of us cannot donate due to being on a government aided fixed income.

So if you are on fixed income you cannot make charitable contributions? Hmm, fascinating.

Preecher- I just donated $10 in your honor. There are different ways to support UMASS- donations are just one way. GO UMASS!

How will my money help the basketball team? I would love to know, because I don't believe it will change a thing.

Also I didn't go to UMass when education was dirt cheap, UMass has already gotten plenty from me.

I get that. But there is nothing in law that prevents you from giving? Sounded like there was some weird resctriction.
