Three UMass players were named to the All-ECAC team: Josh Jennings, Courtney Robinson and Brett Arnold.

Former UMass Coach Ted Roof has been appointed defensive coordinator at Auburn.

I thought we were considering playing Michigan in 2010? This article says Maine may play at the Big House.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How about Florida assistant coach Steve Addazio as a possibility for UMass Head Coach? See this article from the Boston Globe. Key Quote from the article"

Addazio, 49, has New England ties, playing at Western Connecticut State from 1978-81. After a stint as a high school coach in Connecticut, he began a coaching odyssey which included stops at Syracuse, Notre Dame, Indiana and Florida, where he has been since 2005. When Dan Mullen, Florida's offensive coordinator, accepted the head job at Mississippi State, Gator Coach Urban Meyer elevated Addazio to offensive coordinator.

But Addazio's goal is to become a head coach. In the past few months, he has interviewed for openings at Yale and Syracuse. He is regarded as an excellent recruiter, which BC officials regard as a key issue, although the overwhelming sentiment is to bring in someone with BC ties, which would again favor Spaziani."

If he was interested in being Head Coach at Yale, he could do even more at UMass.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I think that article is saying Maine would play Michigan in 2009. 2010 could still be possible for 2010.
