UMass Southwest Towers house 5,500 students
Red Sox World Series win "celebration" 10/30//13Apparently UMass is heeding advice from the $160,000 Davis Report, a postmortem of the Blarney Blowout, by trying to limit the number of guests UMass students can have on campus for Superbowl Sunday.
On the eve of Blarney Blowout the visitors reached 7,000, which should have been a clue that the stage was set for an epic event. Kind of like radar picking up a sky full of planes closing in your sleeping fleet moored in paradise.
Will it work? Probably not. Even without "guests" UMass Southwest area has a h-u-g-e population density with 5,500 college aged youth packed into a quarter mile square area.
And come this Sunday, all too many of them will be under the duel influence of alcohol combined with all those endorphins released by watching large men thump each other on a field of battle.
