Monday News ---- 08/03/09

At the CAA Media Day, New Hampshire LB Sean Wear provided the first 2009 season bulletin-board material for UMass coaches:

"They projected us to win the North, which I expected," said Ware. "The only thing that kind of surprised us was that UMass was picked second, because of their performance against us last year and they got a new coach. I don't know if they'll be there."

Full article here.

In other UNH news, the next two (and probably last) games in the New Hampshire-Dartmouth series have been moved to 2014 and 2015.

You remember when UMass first announced the contract to play Michigan, it was incorrectly reported that the Minutemen would be the first team to play in the renovated Michigan stadium.

That turned out to be false as the Michigan administration wanted a "Special Opponent" for that event. The Wolverines have announced the special opponent is -------- UConn.

UMass' Sept 26th opponent Stony Brook has been picked 2nd the Big South preason poll. The Sea Wolves return 19 starters and 40 letter winners.

UMass is tied for 15th in the latest College Sporting News consolidated FCS preseason poll.
