It's official. Neal Brown is the new OC for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Brown's hiring drew 120 comments on the Red Raider Blog "Double T Nation"

Matty Vautour mentions Brown and former UMass QB Liam Coen in his latest UMass news article.

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

MassLive.com has a feature on Ed Struzzio a former UMass football player and Captain who graduated in 1949. Struzzio won four letters for Minutemen. He sounds like the kinda guy you'd want on your team. Go UMass!

BTW, UConn is playing Michigan next year too.

Villanova HC Andy Talley has won the FCS National Coach-of-the-Year Award for the second time.

I'm guessing recruiting will be consistent, more or less, with previous years. All pretty much hit or miss. I'm interested in the transfers. Any ideas on who may be interested? I know that Jordan Batts, the WR from Northeastern, has transferred to Robert Morris (in Pittsburgh) of all places. Why didn't the coaches make a go at him?

Because umass has a history of big recievers who can also block in the run game i think they thought batts was undersized but hed be a great wr in a spread offense i beleive showed unbelievable catching abilities and great quickness at NU

Well I would just like to say that umass and all the other teams in the colonial athletic conf missed out on MY SON Jordan Batts and I wish him the very best and much success at RMU, the only school that made him feel wanted!! Go ROBERT MORRIS!!!!
