Saturday--June 29, 2013

UMass will hold a open-to-the-public Topping Out ceremony on Tuesday, July 2nd. I'm going to be there (In'shalla).


In addition, tickets for the 2013 away games are available through the UMass Ticket Office. The following is a cut-and-paste from an e-mail.

Tickets for all 2013 away football games will go on sale through the UMass Athletic Ticket Office on Monday, July 1 at 9 AM.  Game by game pricing:

8/31 @ Wisconsin*                  $45 per ticket

9/14 @ Kansas State               $30 per ticket

10/5 @ Bowling Green             $15 per ticket

10/19 @ Buffalo                       $18 per ticket

11/23 @ Central Michigan        $22 per ticket

11/29 @ Ohio                          $15 per ticket

Purchasing away game tickets through UMass ensures seating with other UMass fans.  Fans are encouraged to purchase away game tickets as far in advance as possible as quantities are limited.  Tickets can be purchased by calling 1-866-UMASS-TIX (1-866-862-7784).

*The UMass Alumni Association is offering a Ticket & Tailgate package for the Wisconsin game.  The tailgate will be held in the Northwood Room with a balcony overlooking the "Badger Bash," the largest and longest running public tailgating party in Madison.  The UMass tailgate breakfast includes eggs, french toast, sausage, potatoes, fruit salad, yogurt, croissants, muffins, assorted juices, coffee and tea. A cash bar will also be available.  For more information, or to register, click here.  To purchase just game tickets for the Wisconsin game, contact the Athletic Ticket Office.

As a UMass Football season ticket holder, you are entitled to 2 (two) FREE tickets at one of the MAC away games (Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, or Ohio).  If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please reply to this email with which game you would like, your name, and your account number.  You can also call the athletic ticket office to request your free tickets (two free tickets per account).  In order to ensure your free tickets, please place your request by Friday, August 9.

Individual game tickets for home games at Gillette Stadium will go on sale on Monday, July 8 at 10 AM.


CBS Sports says UMass has a good shot to exceed their predicted 1.5 over/under 2013 win total.


Football Schedules ranks UMass #2 in MAC OOC scheduling difficulty.


OT, but the Denver Post says the Pats were the only NFL team interested in Hernandez after he failed a drug test while he was at Florida.
