The CSN Fab 50

The UMass football team and players have accumulated numerous awards for the record setting 2006 season.

Are we too blasé by now to read about more awards?

No, we are not :)

Here's one I missed. Back in December College Sporting News published its "Fab 50" of the top fifty players in I-AA. The article is here.

Named were:
The choice of Koegel was particularly pleasing as he did not get the accolades he deserved this year. When UMass was only punting once or twice a game, it was difficult for him to generate stats that would draw the eye of sports writers.

UPDATE MARCH 15, 2007: Read the 3rd comment for some updated news on Brandon London. This is a high quality post.

shouldn't this article be named "The CSN 'Fab 50'"?

You are correct sir. It's been corrected.

One guy not on the CSN Fab 50, from Two-time All-Atlantic-10 wide receiver from the University of Massachusetts Brandon London had a private workout for an AFC North team yesterday and looked very sharpe, according to a source. London measured in at a shade over 6' 4" and 213 pounds. On field turf, he ran a 4.47 40-yard dash two-times, ran a 6.53 3-cone and had a 10'2" broad jump. London is expected to workout for more scouts at Massachusetts' and Boston College's upcoming Pro Days.

I believe UMass' Pro Day is March 16. London, Ihedigbo, Baylark, Miller, Belton, Smith, Thompson, Koegel should all be working out. Should bring a lot of scouts!
