Humbled in Hempstead--11/22/09

Mrs Blog and I listened to the game while traveling in eastern New England. WCRN 830 AM in Worcester puts out a monster signal. It was a tough game to listen to, as a mediocre Hofstra team set a all-time passing record against the the Minutemen. It was a disappointing end to a disappointing season.

This one is going to take a while to get over.

Northeastern has cut its football program

WCRN - 50K watts. Lets make them the flagship or co/flagship station. Lets give them 500-1000 season tickets to use to market our football games every day of the football season.

Upton Bell, formerly GM with the Patriots has a Monday night Show before the Monday Night Football Game. What a great platform to advertise UMass Football (and UMass Sports) into the Central Mass and Boston Market. (1) Lets buy the Northeastern Season Ticket List. (2) Lets invite some of their players to transfer to Amherst. (3) Lets grab a couple of their coaches. (4) Lets be proactive and ask Alumni to donate to hire additional coaches.

Many thanks to our departing Senior class; they gave us lots of thrills. A special thanks go to Scott Woodward and Armando Cuko; you guys represented UMass with class. Best wishes to all!

I agree - Woodward has shown class all the way. Congratulations to them both.
