Tuesday --October 18, 2011

UMass has released the schedule of events for the Colonial Classic. The UMMB will be there as well as the UNH band.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Strangeness in the FCS polls this week. UMass is #22 in the TSN poll.

However, UMass is in the "others receiving votes" section of the FCS Coaches Poll. Note that Delaware is still ranked #13 in the nation. Note also that two of the four Hens wins have been over DII West Chester and Delaware State (2-4).

UMass is 6th in the Lambert Poll.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trevor Sasek is back as the starting QB for Delaware.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Darren Thellen makes the Boston Herald's "College Football Heroes" list.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Speaking of heroes: Jesse Julmiste's current 18-549 30.5 AVE kick return totals rank him as #4 in UMass single season kick return records. He needs 54 yards to pass Steve Parnell's 603 yards (1968). Julmiste needs 239 more yards to break into the UMass Top-10 career kick returner list.

Two CAA running backs won national honors from TSN this week.
