It takes money to make money

Next season, Charley Molnar and UMass are scheduled to travel to Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin in their first season as a member of the Mid American Conference.

Their game against the Buckeyes puts them in line for $1 million payday, and the game at the Big House will earn the Minutemen $650,000.

The payday for their game against Wisconsin has not been formally announced, but we can guess that payday will be pretty hefty as well.

The athletic department also recently announced a $33 million fundraising campaign, which will aim to enhance capital, fundraising, endowments and sport specific goals over the next six years.
