Friday--September 18th, 2015

If you havn't joined the Gridiron Club, now would be an excellent time to do so. They're having their
first tailgate of the season at Gillette.

After many months of anticipation, it's time for the UMass Minutemen to return back to the Commonwealth and take the field at Gillette Stadium against Temple on Saturday, September 19th.

All members of the Gridiron Club and Football Alumni are invited to stop by the Gridiron Club Tailgate for a pregame tailgate prior to Saturday's game with festivities beginning at 1:00 pm. Feel free to bring your own beverages, food, and participate in a pot-luck style tailgate party. This is great opportunity to meet other Gridiron Club members as well as UMass Football alumni. Look for the Gridiron Banner in Lot 5 near  the E2 entrance and we will see you on Saturday.

If you are a true UMASS fan and read these boards, you must belong to the Gridiron club and The Court Club. Give what you can. These two groups are vital to the chances of UMASS moving up into the AAC, in the next couple of years.

i was just reading the 11/11/1986 edition of the Touchdown Club Report, Jerry Grady editor. UMass had just won 17-7 over Harvard (I was there BTW).

Al Neri was the New England Gold Helmet winner and co-offensive player of the week in the Yankee Conference. John McKeown was Yankee Conference Defensive player-of-the-week and was also ECAC weekly All-Star.

I've been a member of the Gridiron Club in it's various forms for a long time.

I know it hurts losing, but Coach Whipple will get there. Be part of helping him out by belonging to Gridiron Club. Besides the actual cash, your name on the list is a big help in the culture wars.

Go UMass and visit the Gridiron Club's tent on Saturday and sign up if you can.
