Thursday--March 1st, 2012

Matty V. has an interesting story on Coach Molnar and his staff as well as updates on the UMass football program.

Among the news: UMass will have two fifth-year transfers.  Spring practice starts March 27th and Spring game will be April 28th.

UMass had almost 150 players attend two Junior Days.

In addition, a Tampa Bay news paper said (referring to UMass' offer to Darren Hambrick) " and it continues the Minutemen’s recruiting blitz in the Tampa Bay."

A MAC conference scribe is not happy about the prospect of Temple leaving the League.

Meanwhile, Philly.com asks "Is the Temple move to the Big East on hold?"

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

Ron Chimelis says the Temple-UMass hoops rivalry will be missed. Last night's Owls-Minutemen game was a barn-burner. Too bad we apparently will not have a chance to develop a series in football.

Nice story about Victor Cruz in the Wall St Journal.

Quote from Victor:

At the suggestion his salary could make him bitter, he snorted and said, "the only thing I am is hungry, to win more championships. I never dreamed about being a millionaire—I dreamed about being a football player."

When it comes to recruiting, Stanford does different.
