That guy JMU is getting, Peter Rose is the same guy UMass was interested in after he got busted. It is an obvious risk but one JMU is willing to take!

Compared to the McGuirk I went to when I graduated ten years ago, it is new. Turf, lights, thousands of people tailgating...

UMASS football games have been great the last few years. I still think more marketing would easily fill up the stadium on a regular basis. Meanwhile I can't wait until the home opener!!

Why do people constantly blame marketing? It's the fall and there is a large college around. People know there is football. If you actually pay attention, for the most part attendnace has been increasing over the years.
