Friday News----- July 30th, 2010

Tyler Holmes and Emil Igwenagu have been named UMass captains for the 2010 season. There have been a number of Junior captains for UMass in the past, but this is the first time I can remember where there were two. This is probably because UMass returns only nine starters (second lowest in the CAA) and only six, by my count, are seniors.

The CAA's website has the coach's and player's video from Media Day fixed.

UMass' 2010 OOC opponent Stony Brook was picked second in the Big South on their Media Day.

The UMass JATAM has a story with four links concerning Vladimir Ducasse and James Ihedigbo.

It's been a while since New Hampshire did not have any preseason All-CAA candidates on offense.

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

According to this newspaper blog, Michigan has the 5th best schedule in the Big Ten.

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

Delaware's Pat Devlin has reason to be motivated.

Speaking of QB's, it looks like former Oregon player Jeremiah Masoli is going to be playing for Old Miss instead of an FCS team.

Today is thirty-six days until the 2010 season starts. Wearing #36 for UMass is Tyler Holmes, a 6-0 215 pd RS JR LB from Blacksburg, VA. In 2009 Homes was the leading tackler on defense as he went 50 UT 60 AT 110 TT 6.5-14 TFL 1.0-9 SACKS 4-12 INT 5 BkUp 1 FF. Besides tackles, Holmes lead the team in INT's. Holmes was the second leading tackler in the CAA with 11 Avg/G. He has been named one of the UMass Captains for 2010.

thats a shame that a senior class is not represented with one captain. makes no sense at all other than Morris is campaigning for his job in 2011.

Masoli in graduate school at Ol' Miss? I'm sure he sparkled on his GRE exams. Maybe Ol' Miss does not consider GRE scores. Anyway, you think after four years as a Soc. major he would learn about right and wrong behavior..........
