Frank, I thought the senior athletes in any sport were given a UMass ring at there banquets. Did UMass stop this practice? Just curious.

Ah, not sure on the senior ring thing.

The football seniors have rings and watches from the '06 and '07 years, so it was not necessary.

I suppose the Athletic Dept might give senor rings if that class never won a CAA championship or made the playoffs.

God forbid!
