The Athletics Committee canceled its June 19th meeting. The task force that was announced back in Sept 2007 to study the move to FBS football was expected to report its findings at the March 27th meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for October 2nd. Is it important for UMass to move to FBS for a branding/marketing perspective? Obviously Yes. If the answer is yes what is the next step? Establish and build financial support. Some things I would like to see: Contact everyone in listed in every UMass database from every campus. Every alumnus, every supporter of UMass, every company in Massachusetts should be contacted. Send an e-mail message to everyone in the entire UMass database. Send a letter to everyone in the entire UMass database. Telephone everyone in the entire UMass database. Bear in mind that UMass football represents the entire state of Massachusetts and should be supported by the entire UMass Family of 50K students. UMass football doesn't not only belong to Amherst.
