It’s not going to be a regular spring game Saturday for UMass, and for obvious reasons. With all the terrible events that have transpired the last week in Boston and its surrounding areas, the game was going to feature plenty of emotion. They’ll be even more now as a result of the school’s terrific decision to go all out in honoring the Boston Marathon victims.

In a very cool and touching gesture, a handful of Minutemen will wear the names of the victims on their nameplates. Not only that, according to a school release, head coach Charley Molnar is offering those who were competing at the marathon a chance to “Cross The Finish Line” during the game.
Well done, UMass!
