Last Day of 2008 blog post

UMass ended ranked #15 in the Massey Rankings, which is a computer rating based on wins and quality of the schedule. The CAA was first of the FCS leagues and has seven teams in the top 20.

We lose a couple in the recruiting wars:-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Former UMass Captain (1977) Peter McCarty is defensive line coach for the Western Michigan Broncos. I first saw this on the UMass Athletic Dept's "Just a minute' column.

More scans from the 1977 team are in the "UMass Football History" link in the Blog side bar.


This blog post happens to be the 500th post for 2008 and the 2,326th post since the start of the UMass football Blog back on June 5th, 2005. The very first blog post is here .

I'd like to wish all the Blog readers and everone associated with UMass Football a Happy New year. May 2009 bring everyone health, happyness and success ----and a return to the playoffs for the UMass Footbal team :)
