The Stadium Experience:

The fans seemed happy to watch Umass play. There were no expectations of victory, but expectations of improvement. I have to give the fans here a 7. Everyone just wanted to have a good time, and isn't that what this is about? The views in Gillette Stadium are well, ok. It's a freakin' pro stadium, and I hate college games in pro stadiums. It loses much of the collegiate feel to the game. I heard a rumor that Umass may be planning to fulfill NCAA stadium requirements by expanding their on campus stadium. I look forward to that day - 4. Concessions: Sneak bottles of water in your underwear here, if you can! :D Patriot success has come at a price, and those prices are also on display for the Umass game. The prices are HIGH! Eat lucnh before you go - 2. The atmosphere is dull, but that has alot to do with the product on the field. Not much pageantry I'm afraid. The band was great! Their pre-game, halftime, and POSTGAME shows were worth sitting through. That made up for the empty stadium, and lack of ooomph. I give it a 7. Parking is easy, and FREE. Not sure if it's free on Sunday, but for Umass it was - 10. My Umass experience totals to 30.
