Nice story about Travis Tripucka trying to make the Rams by STLtoday.com.

"I could have gone to Notre Dame, but I'm really glad I stuck with U- Mass because I did things at UMass that I never would have been able to do at Notre Dame," Tripucka said. "It was a great experience for me."

CBS Sports has a blog entry on the 10 toughest schedules in FBS. It mentions UMass, but the Minutemen are not included in the list, although our OOC schedule should have given us honorable mention.

The MAC Blog "Hustle Belt" ranks the MAC teams by the number of Phil Steele preseason All-Conference players. We're ahead of Akron.

Phil Steele has a blog post on % of offensive yards returning. With UMass losing most of its receiver corps and Jonathan Hernandez, the Minutemen rank #100 nationally.
