The 2012 schedule is looking to be pretty good indeed. Not sure if we have it exectly correct but it seems that we play @ UConn for game1 then Indiana at Gillete and then @ Vandy. Seems that the program is heading for some good games in the firsat yr of D1. Looking forward to going to both the UConn game (which will be interesting for sure) and to going to Nashville to see them play Vandy.

Do a fair amount of driving while working and listen to Paul Finebaum from Alabama. Seems that a fair amount of his caller effected by the heat since they talk at an amazingly slow level. Looking forward to going to Nashville to see if this pattern of talking is widespread or unique to only some areas.

Do you think Whip is thinking about what might have been at UMass?

Not sure Whipple whould have given up his NFL time, but maybe.

Don Brown is probably the one wondering if he should have stuck it out one more year...

Ill second that. Don brown is not happy that he left umass. He had no chance of being replaced and always wanted to be a fbs head coach. Whipple I'm sure is happy for the program but has no regrets on leaving.
