Game Day---James Madison


Man, I hate not going to the games. Mrs. Blog and I have a lot tradition of going to away games. Most of the CAA games are in places that allow me to go the game and incorporate some shopping or something for Mrs. Blog. But, since I'm going to Texas Tech, there was not really time for a trip to Harrisonburg. Still waiting for the game at home makes me hyper.

Jeff Thomas of the Springfield Republican has a game day article here .

The Harrisonburg has something to talk about . WNSV has an article here .

Matty Vautour has a game day article here .

The Boston Globe has an article on New England College teams here .

The UMass website has a story on how WCAP 980 AM Lowell has rejoined the UMass Sports Network. They give a lot of additional coverage. Now, UMass needs a Berkshire station. There are a lot of UMass fans in the Pittsfield area.

BTW, Northeastern continues its tradition of killer OOC schedules with a trip to Georgia
Southern.

The CAA game day page covers today's games. TV coverage starts on CN8 at Noon with UNH at Rhode Island.

UPDATE: One of the college football blogs I link to "Saturday Soundoffs", just went silent. If you want to check out anything in that blog, better do so now as I'll be taking the link down shortly.

Josh I am both pleasantly shocked and pleased that you have added another radio station to our network.

Some items to add to your list that I am interested in.

1) Why is WRNX (100.9 FM) our flagship station. It isn’t a all-sports station nor does it even broadcast a morning or evening sports show.

2) When fans Listen to a game on a radio station that is part of the UMass network they expect to be able to listen to the game, pre-game show and post game show. I hope you can add them.

3) No one has ever been able to explain to me why WMUA is not part of the UMass network.

4) Why can't we listen to the weekly sports luncheon on WMUA or the radio network? Since WMUA would broadcast the luncheon at no cost the question I have for you is why isn't it broadcast?

Please continue to improve and upgrade our radio network. As Frank has pointed out there are UMass fans in the Pittsfield area who would listen to our games.

Josh, Keep up the good work.
