Wednesday--May 16th, 2012

The UMass football site has a sidebar video that is worth watching. It's about Coach Molnar's talk to the Boston alumni.

The best quote is not by Coach Molnar, but by the facilities administrator who says :"Don't believe comments by a blog or something, we have the money (for the McGuirk upgrade) and it's progressing on time!"

The new football offices/training facility will be a great boost to UMass recruiting and is  absolutely necessary for the Minutemen to win in FBS football.

Jeff Thomas has a story about UMass' OOC opponent Vanderbilt adding early commitments and Todd Stafford, the Minutemen's lone 2013 verbal so far.

I blogged about Stafford back on March 17th.

Blayne Taylor, the younger brother of Kerry Taylor, is headed to UMass to play Lax.

I've had numerous mentions of Kerry Taylor in the blog.

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

NBC Sports has an article on Liberty University's move to FBS and has several mentions of UMass.

A preview of the Super Bowl ring Victor Cruz will be wearing.

The facilities are critical to the growth of the program. If you look at Uconn and Rutgers and how they moved up they used the capital growth as the foundation to build from. When recruits visit they are most interested in where they will be spending most of their time while on campus and that will be in the the training facilities, locker rooms, Athletic dorms, and academic support facility when not in class. Impressing the recruits with top notch facilities will drastically increase the amount of youn men that buy into the Umass program. Offering the top talent is one thing, getting them to commit is another.
