Maureen Rogers reviews the dismal attendance at Gillette Stadium for UMass football games - and the $5 million the state school is paying in rent:
What's wrong with having a nice little local program? Play the other New England state universities, and schools like Holy Cross? Why not keep it on campus, where students can attend more easily? What's wrong with 13,000 people watching a football game on a nice Indian Summer day? Does it have to be 90,000 diehards screaming for blood?
Personally, I'd rather see that taxpayer money go for scholarships, or labs, or a few more professors.
Forget putting medical marijuana on the ballot. Can't we vote on this?
