Monday Morning reading

Not a lot of after game stories on the web this morning. Jeff Thomas of the Springfield Republican has one here .

The College Sporting News has a recap of the FCS here .

Freshman LB Johnny Evans was stabbed (not serious) in a fight at after a UMass dance. Story here.

A Blog reader reports that the Berkshire Eagle has a story on the I-A study here . Thanks for the link!

Over at the Wiz of Odds, a Maine player is nominated for the "Cheapest shot of the Year"

UPDATE: Matty Vautour has a game article here . He also looks at the state of UMass football right now. Note all Gazette articles require registration, but it's worth it.

Matt also looks at the UMass secondary. I agree with his assessment of the UMass defensive backs. In the first couple of games there was problems with getting on the same page. However, all that talent is starting to come together. I think the 2007 defensive backfield has the potential to be the best ever at UMass. If they continue to improve at this rate they will be the top unit in FCS/I-AA and earn several players a ticket to the NFL.

The USF has a trauma center underneath their new stadium. We have a "medical center" on campus.

9 miles from campus we have the Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton. What is the good reason it is necessary to take anyone from Amherst to Springfield (25 miles) for medical treatment
