I wonder how many WMASS hicks, will now purchase season tickets, now there are games in Amherst. Or does the night game cause new problems? The cows need to be milked early.

It's very hard for me to make games at McGuirk, but I realize the critical importance of developing a solid home base for the students and alumni. Clearly, Gillette is an awesome venue in which to see a football game, but McGuirk offers its own charm, and with its new additions I am m going to try and make a few games. The pro-style offense rather than the spread should be more attuned to the strengths of the returning players. With the brilliance of Whipple's offense and play calling, and with Coen grooming the quarterbacks, I can't wait to see us upset Boston College. Go UMass!
