Thursday--September 27th 2012

I received the following from the UMass athletic office about the Ohio game


"To all those who came out to Gillette Stadium on September 8th to see the Football team in their home opener against Indiana University, we at UMass  would like to sincerely thank you for your support. Though the on field result was not what any of us would have like to have seen, we know that this is a ground up, building process that can’t be done without the support of a great fan base. The team has shown improvements over the course of the season, as evident in their most competitive game of the year, last week against Miami, Ohio.

In order to keep this season going in the right direction, we need the same outpouring of support we got from you at the home opener. This Saturday, the Minutemen take on the Ohio University Bobcats at 3:30pm at Gillette Stadium. We received tremendous feedback about the family friendly atmosphere and the full-day experience fans got from attending game one. On Saturday, our Minutefan Park will be open 3 hours prior to game time with inflatables, games, and the stars of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Fully Charged. After the game, there will be an exciting fireworks display. Your support means a lot to us, so we hope you’ll join us in a full day of fun and entertainment. Come on down to Gillette for free parking, tailgating, entertainment, football, and fireworks to support your UMass Minutemen on their journey to the top!"
