I am not sure who thought moving home games roughly 90 miles from campus is a good idea. The person who proposed it and the people who approved should have their heads examined and their employment questioned.


Bevo, the rationale behind playing all home games at Gillette Stadium is to attract the support of the UMASS alumni living in the eastern part of the state (closer to Boston). In addition, there is no political will within the state legislature to build an FBS caliber on-campus stadium in this economic climate. The dynamics of a state university in New England are much different than in middle America. Private institutions (Ivy League, BC, Holy Cross, Williams, etc) have much more influence than the state schools. People of influence in the state are not UMASS grads. That being said, this is a good, cost-effective move by the university to build its brand name. I plan to be at Gillette on September 8th for the beginning of the FBS era for the Minutemen.
