Matty V has a story about the upgrades for McGuirk stadium and a new hoops practice facility. He says it appears some UMass games will be on WWEI. The western Mass all-sports station will carry some of the UMass football and basketball games. One of our commenters will be happy to know that the athletic dept will be staring a football season ticket advertising blitz starting in early July.

Frank- No I'm not happy they are waiting for mid July to start a marketing push. They have wasted so much time it is sad. Unless UMASS averages 25k this year will be a disaster in the eyes of the Boston media,who is waiting for UMASS to fall on their face. Let's not let this happen!!
