Fall Practice opens

Jeff Thomas of the Springfield Republican has a article here .

The UMass athletic site has an article here . Also kudos to the athletic dept for starting a series of video clips about training camp on the website. That's a cool feature.

I know I've said this a number of times, but we are really living in a great time to be a UMass fan. The amount of information available is wonderful. Be sure to check Bob McGovern's "Between Mullins and McGuirk" UMass all-sports Blog and UMass1863's UMass Football Page for more UMass insights.

Sure beats the old days when I would be moodily leafing through last year's game programs and wondering what was happening with the team.

In CAA news, JMU's early schedule includes UMass and Appalachian State back-to-back.

UPDATE: Matty Vautour has an article about the first practice and has a side note on seven former UMass players in NFL training camps.

Where are the video clips?

Near the UMass "All-access" image on the Athletic Dept main page. One should be run when you open the page. Make sure you have the video plug-in for your browser.

should be visible here

Just looked at the updated roster and this is the BIGGEST--and know doubt fastest UMass team I've seen. Can't wait to see them in action. Lots of new names too.

Hope the AD updates the depth chart on the UMass site--looks like crap--and still has the old ht/wts. Otherwise their doing a great job!
