Tuesday telex 12/30/08

Bruce Dowd has a long article about the Richmond-Montana Championship game with many pictures.

Josh Buchanan has released his 2008 FCS All-American teams. Several UMass players made the third team.

For the first time ever, UNH was able to red-shirt their entire 2008 recruiting class. Brought to my attention over on the excellent New Hampshire Football Report.

Coach Brown said last year,

"We signed 11 true freshmen. If your program is set up the right way you'd like to redshirt most if not all of those guys."
"We hope the nonfreshmen can come in and help right away." - Football Coach Don Brown

How many of our true freshmen were we able to redshirt?
