Friday--January 27th, 2012

Matty V. has a couple of stories on the UMass connections in the Super Bowl: Cruz and Ihedigbo, a match made at UMass. And opportunity knocks for James Ihedigbo.

Cruz's Giants bio page.

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

Ihedigbo has a weekly prayer call with his mother before a game.

Ihedigbo's Patriot's bio page.

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

UMass recruited the Pats Sterling Moss.

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

Athlon Sports has a bunch of coaches with UMass connections as possible replacements for Greg Schiano at Rutgers.

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

As every football fan in America now knows, Greg Schiano accepted the HC job at Tampa Bay.

Coach Molnar talked about recruiting the Northeast for UMass. The Scarlet Knights commits list has 18 recruits all but two of them from NJ and PA.

A coaching change invalidates a commitment, even a signed LOI, so I would expect UMass to be making a pitch to some of the Rutgers recruits.

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

Boston College loses a three star recruit to Harvard. UMass had recruited McShea as well.

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

At the Senior Bowl, the spotlight is on tight ends.

CBS Sports said Emil Igwenagu passed "the eyeball test".

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

Is it just me or is Bill Belichick channeling Obi Wan Kenobi?
