Two Weeks until Kansas State --- 08/22/09

Bump. I'm giving away a very nice Maroon & White "UMass Football Blog" ball cap to the person who e-mails me the closest guess of the UMass Kansas State game. It's free and I'll pay the shipping. The contest is just for fun (I have an extra hat). I'll delete all the e-mail addresses after the game. Participation has been light so far. A decent guess has a good chance of winning.

WWLP has a short article on the UMass defense and a video interview with Jeromy Miles here.

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

Matt Vautour has an article on the position battles in training camp.

He also has a blog post on former UMass star James Ihidogbo in the Jets training camp.

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

Matt Lawrence has three articles about his training camp status:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Seven UMass players are on the College Sporting News 2009 preseason All-America teams. That's tied for second highest number of players named in the entire FCS.

Cal Poly gets a really nice new scoreboard. With the recession, it'll be a while before McGuirk's scoreboard is updated.

Remember my blog post of August 13th? I had a mention and link about Rhode Island's Joe Casey returning from a devastating compound leg fracture.

Casey dislocated his ankle in training camp and his college career may be over. Condolences from the UMass Football nation to Joe. Hope he recovers.

I would prefer them spend money on other projects for football rather than a new scoreboard. Just isn't that important. The current one has all the information that is needed.

Too bad about Casey. It'll be interesting to see if he petitions for another redshirt year. It goes to show that players are one play away from having an opportunity. I hope Casey recovers quickly.
