Wednesday before Michigan -- Sept 15th, 2010

UMass' game notes for the Michigan game are up. Html here and pdf here.

Michigan's game notes for UMass here (pdf).


Matty Vautour says the mission for the UMass defense is to knot "the shoelace".

Matty also states NFL-quality opposing players are no strangers to UMass. talks about UMass' LB Tyler Holmes.

The Cal State Fresno student paper says UMass' goal is to keep Denard Robinson off ESPN's Top 10 plays-of-the-week.

The Toledo Blade says there is nothing small about Michigan's matchup with UMass.


ESPN has an article on the strong play of FCS teams against FBS teams this season. Here's hoping UMass adds the list.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- says there is only one leader in the Heisman race: Michigan's Denard Robinson.


The Sports Network has an article about Old Dominion's first game against a CAA team.

The CAA's website has all the game notes for this week's CAA games.

Frank, I wrote a comment yesterday about places to eat in AA. FYI I did not do a travel package and was able to buy passes to the golf course event.

The Saturday morning event is for anyone who registered. As of this past Saturday there were still openings.

1. Comcast broadcasts will NOT all be on 285 in Mass. Maybe most, but in my area - as an example - it will be on 289.

2. For the guy who posted about Ann Arbor - What about Zingermann's?

Lines are insane at Zingerman's on a football weekend. It's a long walk from the stadium and parking nearby is pretty limited, especially since there is the farmer's market on Saturday morning in the nearest public parking lot. You have to balance out the experience with the hassle.
