The Minutemen's OOC schedule for 2012 is UConn, Indiana, Michigan and Vanderbilt.

Another team moving to FBS this year is University of Texas at San Antonio.

The Road Runners OOC schedule includes South Alabama (first year FBS team), Texas A&M-Commerce (DII with a 1-9 record in 2011), Georgia State (FCS), Northwest Oklahoma St (NAIA !?) and McNeese State (FCS). A NAIA team is four levels below FBS football....

In 2011 UMass averaged 25.2 points/game and 360 yards of total offense/game. That was the lowest in the past seven years. In 2011 the Minutemen defense gave up 27.9 points/game and 365 yards of total yards/game. That was the highest in the past seven years.

Can't tell if original comment was accepted. Does anyone know when the season ticket seat allocations at Gillette will be sent out? Anyone know how many season tickets have been sold for this season yet? Why is the CAA logo still on the UMass web page, how hard is it to change and update that to the MAC?

NAIA is equivalent to lower tier FCS schools or Division II, depending on which team we're discussing.

When is the ticket office going to stop "fumbling" the ball? Seven weeks ago I renewed my ticket at 4X the normal rate and was told my seat assignment would be known to me in two weeks. As of today I still don't know.

If we are going to be "big time", we need to act and be "big time" from top to bottom, end to end. Period.
