Saturday --Dec 4th, 2010

A Cleavland writer says the MAC hopes to use UMass as some leverage on Temple.

This writer says the Big East was not interested in UMass. That's not surprising, given our current status. If we were a successful FBS program, then that could change.

A Syracuse blogger logs in about UMass joining the Big East. He bases his thoughts on Villanova accepting the bid to join Big East football. Problem is, I think they won't...

I also predict that the Big East will split again in the future with the football schools leaving the Catholic basketball schools. That would be the time for UMass to make a bid for the football Big East, if we were in FBS.

CAA Game Day here for the CAA teams in the playoffs.

So far, three of the four CAA teams will be on ESPN3.

None of the games are listed on Channelsurfing.net, but their lineup changes frequently.

Wish the people injured in the ski club accident a speedy recovery.

Watched the MAC playoff game last night. It was a good game.

Not worried about the issue we aren't familar with some of the schools in the MAC. At one time we weren't familar with the schools in the CAA and we built up some rivalries pretty quickly. Our Mass TV network will be the key to giving us more pub and with more viewership we will draw a more fans at our games.
