Pretentious UMASS Advertising

A lot of you Peeps know that I am a proud graduate of the University of Massachusetts in Amherst where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science Cum Laude way back in the 1900's.  Plus I ran on the Cross Country and Track teams albeit without distinction.
It was a great place to be.... the educational choices, the social scene, the beautiful location in the foothills of the Berkshires.
That said... the ads for the University of Massachusetts that constantly bombard us on the local Boston TV networks are really irritating.   Why do we use public money to advertise UMASS?  You don't see Harvard, or Northeastern, or BC advertising.  But the public school spends money on costly ads, and the ads are pretty obnoxious too... some fat administrator strolling around in a field talking like an idiot.
UMASS shouldn't dip into the public trough to fund pretentious, egotistical ads that promote the Bureaucrats who administer it.
