Frank-Thanks for keeping us full of new and good information. Has anyone else noticed how bad, outdated the UMASS Athletics website has become? Also, other than hoping some volunteers can sell interest and tickets, the marketing of UMASS football and basketball has been non existent.
Is anyone trying to get corporate partners, sponsorships, advertisers? Or is the summer a time to do nothing? Same old UMASS.
