UMass has released the latest artist rendering of the new field house/practice facility for Football. Construction will start in February. Not shown, but also included will be an upgrade to the press box at McGuirk that will allow UMass football to play some games in Amherst.

This is great news. Coach Molnar will have more than just a poster to show recruits. The facility will replace the current 50 year old field house that is not much even by 1-AA standards.

We'll get to see if the people who have been gripping about Gillette will sell out the 2014 game in McGuirk.

Harry Plumer has a story here about the release.
