UMass now FBS (I am from Bahstin)



It was announced today that UMass is making the jump from the FCS CAA to the FBS MAC. UMass will begin FBS play in the 2012 season and have home games at Gillette Stadium for the first few seasons.

 

I know this is not newsworthy for many PSU people, but I am from MA and was very close to going to the Zoo. However, I went to Dear Old State instead the rest is history. Needless to say, I am very happy for the Zoo and the state of Massachusetts. I think its a great move. One of the main reasons I did not end up at UMass was because they did not have big-time football. 

 

I was just thinking about a possible series between UMass and PSU. We end up playing 1 or 2 MACrifices every year anyway. UMass played in the Big House last year and came close to pulling the upset. Would it be possible to do a 2 for 1? Play 2 games at Beaver and then do one at Gillette? I know Penn State's schedule is pretty full for the next 3 or 4 seasons, but down the road this could happen.

As a Masshole, I would love to see Penn State in Gillette. Maybe playing in MA would even revive the now extinct series with BC.
