LU is on Fall Break today, so I had time to read a few UMass message boards about game. Here was one quote:

We [UMass ]will make fun of them from the stands.. they [LU] will make fun of us on the field.

I get the sentiment. They're everything they claim us to be... dogmatic, inflexible and bigoted. Who cares? At the end of the day it's football. As long as they remain an easier D1-A win that gets us one game closer to the magic number of 6 every year... keep 'em on the schedule.

A shot in the dark but I figured I would try. Anyone got a couple tickets for the game tomorrow? Thinking about making a last minute trip down from NH to Amherst.
