Chattanooga Trip

Well, it was worth the effort. The Championship game was a great experience.

Chattanooga is an interesting area. We visited the Lookout Mountain National Battlefield . Next time UMass is in the National Championship we want to visit Missionary Ridge and Chickamauga Battlefields .

It was a lot of fun to meet the many UMass fans who made the trip. I got to visit with several of this blog's readers. It was fun talking to the Appalachian fans who were friendly.

The pre-game band concert was great. The UMass band clearly won the battle of the bands.

The Army Black Knights parachute team did a great job and the F16 flyover got everybody rockin'

We were in the minority, but we make some noise and there was lots of Maroon & White in the stands, on the plane rides to and from and around Chattanooga. Congrats to all the UMies who made the effort to go to the game.

I'll be back with game images, press links and more in a while.

F/A-18 Flyover, thanks for the nice words. It was a heck of a game.

Tough to get a visual on those jets in the darkness.

I'll take DM's words that they were F18's.
