Football Scoop has a post on how a successful sports program can transform a university. Things have changed at Gonzaga since they became good at hoops. Quote from the article:

"– The endowment has bubbled from $67 million to $212.9 million (217.8 percent)
– Annual fundraising has grown from $13.4 million to $31.1 million (127.7 percent)
– Total donors have grown from 7,006 to 13,261 (a modest 89.3 percent growth)"

Coastal Carolina, UMass' 2nd 2017 opponent has scheduled two games with South Carolina. The last time the Chants faced the Gamecocks, they lost 70-10. The Minutemen will play Coastal Carolina again in 2018 at Amherst.

Meanwhile, there are allegations that the Chants cheerleading squad have been bad girls.
