Thursday--June 5th, 2014

UMass announces the renaming of the 100 yard club. What ever it is called, it's the primary fund raising and support group for Minutemen Football. Please join. the lowest level is $100 and you will receive:

  • Special Event Invitations
  • Minutemen auto decal
  • Minutemen Club E-newsletter
  • Priority ticket points
  • In-season Gridiron Club Newsletter
Higher levels of giving get more perks. If $100 is too rich, they'll take any donation. Even a $10 donation helps. It also supplies an important element in the culture wars. You'd be listed as a contributor;  the total number of people interested in UMass football really helps establish a constituency for UMass football. That's important.

The cost of Big Ten opponents keeps rising. UMass will receive $850,000 for its game at Penn State. MAC schools will receive between a high of $1.1 million for Miami (Ohio) at Michigan to a low of $500,000 for Purdue-Central Michigan.

Boston College picks up a verbal from Sharrieff Girice, a 6-1 190 pound RB from CT. He had offers from UMass, Rutgers, UNH and Albany.

On May 26th, I blogged about Malik Henderson, a 6-0 174 pound DB from FL. Yesterday, he verbaled to Pitt.

If UMASS fans find $100 bucks too much to donate, then this program should be shut down. Many blow $100 bucks drinking on a single Friday or Saturday night. It will be interesting to see if some of the football alumni finally pony up some money. I doubt it, as most wait for others to give. They would rather give advice, not money.
