Looks like a wet, cool day Saturday, should favor UMass, but I fear a low turnout. The undergrads will be off to find "junk food" by 5. I'm hoping that Young and Williams have a big day. Was the NIH study done at UMass? And since when is Pizza junk food?

Always cracks me up when people get outraged by a 50k study. That is such an insignificant number of our overall budget. Plenty of other places to cut back on first.

Anyway apparently MassLive is ending daily coverage of UMass athletics. Thanks to Dan Malone for all his hard work. MassLive will come crawling back when football settles in nicely somewhere and basketball is back in the Tourney annually. Heck even hockey might be coming back under Carvel. I would say don't give them credentials but UMass isn't really in a position to do that.

Mass live cutting back speaks to the vibrancy of the Springfield economy! Meanwhile since they are in bed and involved in the new ownership of another soon to fail AHL hockey team,look for them to continue to push down that rubbish. Smfh

UMASS has ignored The Springfield market, so the Springfield market chooses to ignore UMass.
