2009 UMass Football Blog Disclaimer

Following the lead of a Milblog I read, I probably should do a disclaimer periodically. This is 2009's issue.

The UMass Football Blog is not affiliated with the University of Massachusetts, the UMass Football team or any other UMass website or organization. The content of this blog is solely the responsibility of the owner of the Blog and does not reflect the views of the University of Massachusetts or the UMass Athletic Dept. Content is copy write to the author.

The UMass Football Blog does not accept advertising, although a recent offer by Playboy Mansions Tickets, was certainly tempting.

I do not receive compensation of any sort or inside information from UMass Football for writing this blog. The UMass Sports Information Office has kindly including me in their mailing list and has allowed me to take part in their Media Days. I sincerely thank them.

The Blog will be five years old in May, which is incredibly ancient by internet standards.

Comments will remain moderated in 2010. Racist or otherwise patently offensive comments will always be removed. Comments about UMass players grades, personal life or character will always be moderated. I feel that it is not proper to make allegations in an anonymous post on a blog. I don't believe I've ever moderated a negative comment about me or the blog or any other topic in which there was some actual intelligence displayed.

Since I am a season ticket holder and a member of Friends of Football, that makes me an "agent" of the program in the eyes of the NCAA. I therefore cannot have any contact with recruits or their families. If you are a recruit and your search engine took you here, you are in the wrong place. Go to the Official UMass Website or call the UMass Football Office now.

After 2,748 blog posts, I am still having fun with the Blog and I intend to keep it going in 2010. Hope everyone has a great new season and I hope we return to the playoffs in this new year.

BTB, do you know what has happened to the "Any Given Saturday" web site?

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.

The CSN website is also down along with the "Any Given Saturday" message board.

Looks like they didn't pay the bills and/or continue to register the domain name.

Hope they get it fixed soon.
