Sunday News --- August 8th, 2010

I believe the UMass Football team reports today with the first practice tomorrow.

The CAA football Blogger has updates on a number of CAA teams who start their training camps this weekend here.

An alert reader pointed out a neat UMass coaching connection.

When Coach MacPherson was HC at Syracuse, one of his assistant coaches was Clarence Brooks, who recruited current UMass OC Brian Picucci to play for the Orange.

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

BTW, former UMass player and coach Ben Albert is now coaching for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

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

Today is twenty-seven days until UMass' season opens. Wearing #27 for UMass is Darren Thellen, a 6-2 200 pd RS SO DB from Brockton, MA. In 2009 Thellen was the 8th leading tackler with 11 GP 7 Started 26 UT 13 AT 39 TT 1.5-5 TFL 1 INT 2 BrUp.
