Why do so few of those who profited from their career at UMASS give back? I'm talking about people like Billy Bulger who gets a sick pension every month from UMASS, Jack Wilson and many many others. Total greedheads and thankless individuals. Please add other names as I know there are many.

Quite the preview on Sports Chat Place. I love when they don't even get the player's names right. I'm hoping that Blake Lewis (Lucas??) has a better year kicking.
