Thursday before Stony Brook-- 09/24/09

UMass QB Kyle Havens---in only his third start-- has won the New England Gold Helmet award.

Matty Vautour has a post on Havens' win here.

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

The UMass Collegian has a story about Ke'Mon Bailey's transition to cornerback. Bailey has been a pleasant surprise as a defensive back. He is always around the ball and has played aggressively. Bailey certainly looks as if he has found his position.

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

Still no game notes available from Stony Brook, but this article by the Seawolves head coach Priore indicates that Stony Brook has some injury problems.

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

Interesting article about James Madison's senior TE Mike Causin.

Who'd have thunk it---- New Hampshire is leading the CAA in defense.

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

Lates press release from the CAA about the league's holding six of the top 15 slots in the polls.

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

The Sports Network's Brett Kahn previews the top twenty-five FCS games this week.

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

Keepers college football ratings have UMass by 23 points and change over the Seawolves.

Isn't interesting that the last 2 winners of the Golden Helmet Award were QB's from UMass and UNH AND both from California--that does tell you something about recruiting and where to find skill position players.

I agree 100% with that statement. california kids play at a much higher level of competition in high school than most other states. I saw the RB from walpole play once this year, hes highly regarded in Mass but I highly doubt he could play at Umass or any other CAA team.

Don't think it has much to do with competition among HS. Just look at the # of colleges playing football in California in relation to the population. It's tiny. Where do all those kids playing HS football in the state go? There are a handful of D1 colleges, and a bunch of JC.

You can find great skill players anywhere, you'll obviously have more in states with more people.
