MassLive.com discusses the impact of Chancellor Holub's possible non-renewal might have on UMass' move to FBS.

Business West says  the turnover will hurt UMass.

I have to shake my head about how some people are determined to keep UMass-Amherst as a larger version of Fitchburg State. There's a reason why Penn State, Michigan and schools like UCLA are national research and educational centers. The reason might be called "vision".

If advocates of torpedoing FBS football get their way, it's an open statement mediocrity instead of achievement is goal at UMass. The "vision thing"----- it's in short supply in some circles at UMass.

This is a cool feature: the UMass website has a preview of the Holy Cross game on Sept 1st.

FCS team Central Arkansas joins the slate of teams with unusual football fields now that they have purple and gray field turf.

UMass is staying 1A football. No one is going to reverse this process. Contracts have been signed & money paid. Buildings have been built. Don't listen to scribes spouting nonsense.
