I attended the UMass Media day yesterday. That's yours truly in the far right hand corner with the blue baseball cap and maroon shirt (right next to real journalist Matt Vautour in the green shirt). Thanks to the UMass athletic dept and Jason Yellin for allowing me to attend. Also thanks to all the friendly and articulate UMass football players who talked to me.
Coach Brown's media comments are here. Jeff Thomas of the Springfield Republican has an article here .
Carl Settenlund of the Worcester Telegram has an article centered on David Burris. He also mentions central Mass natives Ryan Logan, Eric Dickson, Jonathan Hernandez and Emil Igenagu.
Don't think the Minutemen have a target on their backs this year? This run of eight articles about UNH all mention UMass.
UPDATE: Matt Vautour has updates on Ben Coblyn, Brad Listorti and other training camp news here . Hmmm, the Gazette link seems to be slow/not working. Was doing great this morning. Try again later.
