The football team should be thankful the Marching Band is so good. Remove band day and folks coming to watch the 5th quarter show and you have a team that doesn't meet the attendance requirement.

So here's my question. What does Molnar have to do next year to keep his job? And is that realistic?

Hard to argue with the band comment. The band is responsible for (my guess) about 1/2 of those in that stadium.

Remove football and there is no fifth quarter or band. Together we are UMASS, stop trying to divide from within. Let us not forget this important point. Stay together people, things will be better next year. Remember 3 games at McGuirk alone will help the team, and the band.
