RE: One reason we shouldn't bring in UMass
While we're at it, there isn't anything Pacific about Utah...or Colorado...

Still, we are already so stretched geographically that I can't fathom the addition of UMass. Though I am also in favor of state flagships. So, I'm conflicted.

I'll warmly welcome whoever we get, if anyone.

RE: One reason we shouldn't bring in UMass
UMass had the 17th Largest Average Attendance Increase From Previous Year in the entire FBS.

http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/football_r...e/2013.pdf

We had an average attendance increase of 4,929.

2013 Average Attendance - 15,830
2012 Average Attendance - 10,901

The reason you don't see us on the list on Page 3 of that document is because technically in 2012 we were still a "transition" team and weren't a full FBS member. 2013 was technically our first full year as an FBS team.

For 2014 I'm hoping our average attendance is around 20,166.

That would give us another increase of around 4,336. Which would probably put us around the same spot on that list as this year.

We play Boston College and Colorado at Gillette Stadium the first two weeks of the season. So as long as it doesn't rain we should have some really nice crowds for those games.

Can see it for BC but surprised if Colorado is a big draw in the NE.
