Fall 2009 UMass football Roster is up

Before we start, it's apparent that someone in New England has pissed off the weather gods.

I want that person to apologize right now!

Where are you finding the roster?

Click on the link I provided. It's still marked "Spring 2008" on the Athletic Dept page.

I was told that Wallace looked especially good, but wasn't getting snaps. Some players have become noticably leaner (by reported weight) or else honesty has become a new policy....

That's a real shame if coaches gave more snaps to other QB's just because they were on full rides and Wallace wasn't.

I only know what one player told me: that Wallace looked crisp, he is bright and capable, and was well regarded. Still he may have had other reasons to leave. Maybe he wasn't having fun and wanted more assurance of playing time. He appeared to be a very good high school QB. Maybe he wanted to be closer to home? Who can blame anyone for these motives?

I am pretty confident that fun and being closer to home had nothing to do with Wallace's decision to transfer. He will do well at Cal U of PA and Umass may regret not giving him a full scholly.
