Thursday--April 26th, 2012

Matty V. has a list of UMass alumni that will be attending the Spring Game this Saturday. It sounds like it's going to be a fun day.

FYI, I once listened in to Mike Hodges' instructions to the varsity on one of these alumni games.

He told the varsity to have their chin straps fastened and to pay attention to what they were doing , saying "Anyone who is over 30 and is willing to put the pads on and play a college level scrimmage ---- well,  you gotta know that their screws aren't too tight!"


UMass has a press release about the Spring Game here. Free schedule posters will also be available.


The Ralphie Report has a post on the Buffs scheduled game with UMass.


BC Interruption looks at the Eagles future scheduling including games with UMass.


Bleacher Report predicts UConn 34-UMass 17.


The Detroit Free Press has spring updates on Michigan's three MAC teams.

from the Top Roww

Looked over the list of alumni going and it is impressive. Hoping this list grows and grows for each spring game. If some of the more experienced alum's get out there for even one play . . . . well that is pretty damned admirable.

We think that Coach Charlie is doing a great job with his work on building the program.

For those in the Top Roww we hope that one of us can get to the spring game. Roww-mate#3 is busy giving a hand with the family of the Rhody Guardsmen who passed away while in Afghanistan. Our thoughts are still with him and his family.

Is there any TV or video streaming coverage of the spring game so that some of us that can't make the game can see it or record it for later?

I would think it would be highly likely that the Athletic Dept will record some video from the event. They will probably post it on the UMass website and YouTube.

I haven't heard about any live video.
