saw from a poster yesterday that there are still no advertisements for tickets. I am not in the immediate Boston area but the athletic departments has made several public announcements regarding the advertising blitz that we would see begining after the July 4th holiday. Did something happen to delay? Happened to be driving through Syracuse the other day and saw no less than two bilboards off Interstate 81 and heard three radio plugs on my one hour drive from their to Ithaca. Let's go Umass, clocks ticking.
