Twenty-three days before K-state 08/13/09

I meant to mention that the UMass Football Blog blew through 500,000 page views earlier this week.

I'm still looking to give away a very nice UMass Football Blog hat to the person who e-mails me the closest guess to the UMass-Kansas State game. E-mail access is in the "About me" section of the blog.

Mark Whipple talks about the pressures of coaching.

Nice story from the Syracuse Post-Standard about Rhode Island RB Joe Casey. He suffered a compound fracture of his leg last season. With Casey out, the Ram were 11th in the CAA and 114th in the nation in rushing offense. Rhody averaged 2.2 yards/rush for 68.5 yards/game.

You will remember the only game UMass' defense looked like the 2006 version was the game at Kingston. With no running threat the UMass defense teed off and had a season high 8 sacks for 55 yards.

Kansas State's best receiver may be 5-7 Brandon Banks (1,049 yards and 9TD's).

Brandon London gets a quote and a picture in this article.

Anyone know if or when the depth chart will be revised? It seems that UMass if one of the only teams in the CAA (and among FCS teams)who posts one, and I wonder if Morris will continue. Most FBS teams don't post depth charts for that matter.

i have been following football for a long time but i would guess that most teams that compete at the next level all post depth charts

As for FCS, a few schools do, the majority do not; for FBS, it's about half, if that.

That's true, but most schools do publish media guides, which are available on line at the school site, and serve to detail the returning and projected starters, but most are not nearly as demonstrative as a chart.

I'd be curious to know what bloggers think the starting offensive lineup will be against KSU? Anyone care to list?
