Jeff Thomas says Brandon Hill has won the QB starting position.

So does Matty. V.

UMass game notes. UMass two-deep.

Five freshman are on the two-deep. Addy Moas C, Marken Michel WR, Greg Hilliard LB, Iric Harris CB, Randall Jette S.

Specialists, which was a problem last year, have been revised. Brandon Levengood, who kicked off last year with kick field goals and EP. Brandon Yelovich will kickoff and Jeff Strait will handle the punting and holding for extra points.

Matty also has an interview with UMass AD John McCutcheon about upgrades to McGuirk that would allow UMass to have some football games there as well as upgrades to the UMass training facilities. UMass will likely eventually schedule a FCS team annually as do most FBS teams. That game and maybe a MAC team would be good candidates for McGuirk.

I can tell you first hand that qb race came down to a dispute between picucci wanting pagel and morris wanting hill. I guess morris won. Both these qbs will play this year, pagel can play in this conference.

So viverios went from a 2 year starter to not in the 2 deep?

IMHO, the two-deep is not very accurate.It has the UMass defense in a 4-3 for one thing.

It's labeled wrong, but the players are correct.

Hey First Hand Dispute, you don't have a clue! You definitely made that up, and if I was you I would stick to just stick to reading the blog.
