Fan commentary continues on. Yes, it's hard to get the students to come into the stadium. I was at the preseason basketball game against Brandeis and the student section had two, yes two, students sitting together near the front. UMass is a "commuter" school in many ways and the students typically do not include athletic events in their weekend schedule. This is why the kids who want to go to a big athletic school don't go to UMass (according to the Globe anyway). It's supposed to be a pretty good day and a turn out of 10,000 would be pretty good.

There were more students than that, they just didn't sit in the student seats because they were pushed back and there was 600 people there so they could sit in better seats. Just wait until the basketball game on Friday, you will see students.

Being a commuter school has nothing to do with going to athletic events.

Here's a thought:
maybe if the PD started cracking down on the underage tailgaters there wouldn't be such a problem with the "drunk and stupid" and they'd park themselves inside McGirk to support their team.
What a pathetic lack of support and school pride from the student body.

UMass Amherst a commuter school? LOL

NOT being a commuter school is one of the reasons why Amherst is the flagship. Exactly what % of the student body are commuters???
