UMass Football New---May 15th, 2018

Mike Traini of "Fight Massachusetts" reports UMass is requesting upgrades to McGuirk and Garber Field.

McGuirk would get upgraded bathrooms, concessions and a permanent video board.

Also in play would be some sort of indoor practice facility. The cost of the improvements seem to be less than discussed earlier, so there appears to be some options still to be decided.

Any upgrades to McGuirk and practice facilities are a net positive to the program. We'll have see how it plays out.
