Today is sixty-seven days until football. Brian Ostaszewski a 6-5 300 pd RS Jr OL wears #67 for the Minutemen. Ostaszewski started all eleven games at RT for UMass in 2009. Looks as if he will be a fixture at that position for some time.

I am surprised there have been no comments about Maine and Rhode Island dropping football / moving to another conference - NEC.

It is their only logical option if they want to keep a football program. An improved economy won't help either school maintain or establish a competitive program with the other CAA schools.

What about us? We and NH will be in a somewhat comparable position to BC where we are members of a conference where the majority of teams require a plane trip. Will we also have to subsidize the travel of some of these southern schools? Will we have to add a second "money game"?

On 67 days to football.....Brian's last name is spelt with a "z", not a "c", as in Ostaszewski, not Ostascewski. Also "Oz" played all eleven games last year at right tackle not left as we all know that's where Ducasse was. I hear this year he will be at right guard though with milhim as the top candidate for right tackle.

Sorry I had a typo. It's hard to proof read your own stuff. Note that I had it right the second time. And yes he was RT.

Thanks again to all my volunteer fact checkers.
