Thursday News -- Jan 21st, 2010

Ron Chimelis has an article on the five transfers to UMass from Hofstra and Northeastern.

I've blogged on the five before, but this is another way to parse the list:

One year of eligibility
  • John Griffin- 1009 yards in 2009, First Team All-CAA, All-New England
  • Anthony Nelson- Top-20 all-time receptions for the Pride, Nominated for CAA Scholar Athlete.
  • Greg Niland-Starter at LT for the Huskies in 2009
Three years of eligibility
Four years of eligibility

There were 19 seniors in the Media Day seniors photo. Probably not all of them were receiving scholarships. Assuming all five transfers get a ride, there should be 12 or so slots remaining for the rest of 2010 recruits.


James Madison has announced its official 2010 schedule.


The FCS discussion board "Any Given Saturday" is down again along with the related CSN website.


The Boston Globe has a story on BC's Mike McLaughlin, son of UMass legend Mike Sr.

The 2 other mid year transfers are Travis Poston OL(Vill) and Galen Clemons DE (CMU) both were recruited by UMass before. This is from Sign Man over on the hoops board.

Col Hogan said... is fully functioning with great FCS discussion and a lively lounge...

Everyone is welcomed...
