In Dick Baker's newest blog, he brings back the idea of UMass having a pep band for home hockey games.
"Mark Coogan of the UMass hockey fan blog site "Fear the Triangle" has brought it up again, pushing for UMass to have a band presence at home games. I can't agree more. Having traveled to most of their road games last year, there is a big difference in the atmosphere when the Minutemen play on the road than at home ... This is big-time college hockey, and big-time college hockey teams all have pep bands."
