Thursday Morning reading

The UMass Daily Collegian has two articles covering the Northeastern game. The first talks about the excellent play of Sophomore UMass defensive end Michael Hanson .

The second is a game article.

The Boston Globe has a short blurb on Liam Coen winning this week's Gold Helmet award. Coen is still in the running for the Walter Payton Award.

Andy Talley, Villanova's long time coach has been named to the list of the "75 greatest living Philadelphians "

In a past post we mentioned the troubles of Pittsburgh University's head Coach Dave Wannstead and the possibilities of repercussions for UMass football if he were fired. This article discussed his fate.

Matty Vautour in his UMass Sports Blog reports that Brad Listorti is still not practicing.

Interesting article about Wannstedt. Watching college coaches go to the pros and watching pro coaches, and to a lesser extent high school coaches go on to coach at the college level makes it clear that you can't generalize. If Wannstedt has had 2-3 good recruiting classes, then it is hard to understand why he is having problems.
There is a slight possibility there might be some effect on UMass if he is fired from Pitt, however no more than a firing at any other school. I think Whipple and other coaches are aware of Coach Brown's ability. I expect Coach Brown to remain at UM. The greater impact will be the replacement of some of his assistant coaches when they get offers.
