Thursday---Dec 30th, 2010

Matty Vautour has a story about the changing views about head injuries and UMass' response to it.

Matt also has an article about how the FBS bowls are against playoffs for reasons that are not exactly altruistic.

UMass adds two strength and conditioning coaches.

Josh Buchanan has the finalists for his Player-of-the-year on both offense and defense. Tyler Holmes is one of them.

Another UMass legend passed away Tuesday night as Jazz artist Billy Taylor died Tuesday night in New York City. I've been to several of his concerts at UMass and have two or three of his CD's.

TSN breaks down Eastern Washington prior to the National Championship game.

Maryland continues to search for a coach. No word on Don Brown yet.

Matt Twine, a LB UMass had offered to, expects to keep his verbal to the Terps.

Speaking of Baltimore, the Blog is real glad it wasn't Matt Lawrence: Sam Koch win the Ravens cornhole championship.

good to see umass hiring strength coaches. after watching seton hall vs umass in hoops, we were blown away between the differences in muscle mass. Obviously either umass did not lift or never was told to lift. Take your pick-either reason is bad. Will these new coaches work with footballers?

That is a lot of money if we aren't going to move to the MAC. Where are they going to work? With the athletic teams or with the general students?

If the answer is the athletic teams, could they be the precursor to the additional scholarship athletes who will be coming to UMass when we move to the MAC?

I agree. Sumpin's in the air! I think that strength coaches would be primarily responsible for the athletic teams and perhaps teaching some courses to undergraduates. Good sign. Happy New Year to you and yours, Frank, and to all: have a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!
