Nothing UMass-specific on the wires yesterday or today, so let's look at some other stuff.
UMass opens with Albany on August 30th. The Great Danes just released their 2008 schedule and it's a killer with four playoff teams: @UMass, Fordham, @UNH and @Delaware. Note that they list the UMass starting time as 6:00 pm. Lights at McGuirk!
Speaking of psycho schedules---- did you see UT Chattanooga's? The Mocs are the host team for the national Championship game ever year. I went in 2006 and thought they had a nice facility. But UT Chattanooga never makes the playoffs. You can see why after looking at their schedule.
The Mocs first three games were supposed to be Oklahoma, NAIA Belhaven and Florida State. The Blazers just backed out. What a way to mess with your players heads...
Meanwhile, over on Draft Daddy's Top 150 Small School Sleepers, Matt Lawrence has moved up a couple notches and J.J. Moore and Brad Listorti continue to be listed.
