The UMass Marching Band by three touchdowns

Boston College will not allow UMass to bring its full Minutemen Marching Band to the Sept 29th game between B.C. and UMass.

Quote from Steve Buckley's article:"Put the UMass band in the same stadium with the BC band, and it’s the UMass band by three touchdowns."

I was going to email you this article but you are too fast for me. This is a real shame for the UMass band. I was going to attend the game, but BC has lost out on my money and the money of any UMass band parent who was planning on going. I would expect that many a UMass alum would choose to boycott the game. The UMass band has played in plenty of places with less than perfect parking facilities....their band just does not want to be shown up.....and if it is the space/ticket consideration, I am sure that George Parks would have worked around that.

Well, you know BC is going to sell out for that game. Sure it is...

Well, BC's loss is someone else's gain.
