Monday Morning Odds & Ends 08/18/08

The CAA has started a "Press Box" of team and league information. They also have been running a football preview of the CAA teams on their front page.

UMass' freshman DB recruit Dan McLaughlin's brother Mike McLaughlin has been named a captain at Boston College.

And Marcel Shipp has been signed by the Texans (as reported by everybody)

UPDATE: The Giants play tonight at 8:00 pm EDT on ESPN. Brandon London should get quite a bit of playing time. I'll probably be watching with the sound off as ESPN announcing drives me nuts. Maybe WFAN 660 NY will stream the Giants audio feed...

UMass played its home games on a field next to Whitmore.

I don't know its name.

The UMass Library has a bunch of football historical photos here

Use of the images are restricted as per the Library's use policy, but you can view them. You might find some information in the notes.

I find a fee for using the images rather weird. The citizens of the Commonwealth have already paid for them. All NASA images and data are free, for example, since the taxpayers have paid the freight in advance.
