Four Days after watching his team get crushed 45-6 by Indiana, Head Coach Charley Molnar wrote the following e-mail (via the UMass Athletic Marketing Department) to fans today.
Dear Students and Fans of UMass Football,
Thank you for sharing in our historic day at Gillette Stadium this past Saturday. Though the final score wasn’t what anyone who bleeds Maroon wanted, the afternoon was a great success and just the beginning of the story.
What really made the day an extraordinary event was YOU—the students who rocked the 35 buses down the Mass Pike from Amherst to Foxboro and back; fans who drove over with family and friends, tailgating from early in the morning to late at night; and anyone who bought a ticket to support the program. To all of you, we give a sincere thank you.
We hope to make this past weekend a starting point, not a high point, for home game attendance, noise, and excitement. There are four more games at Gillette this year—we need you to COME EARLY-BE LOUD-WEAR YOUR UMASS COLORS!
Charley Molnar, Head Football Coach
