With a week before the opener it is strange that Molnar would not have updated the roster. Does he think that, by not updating it, he will gain some sort of advantage over Connecticut? All FBS teams have had their respective rosters posted for days if not weeks now. I can understand the depth chart not being disclosed, but people want to know the team!

Don't blame Molnar UmassAthletics.com site has seriously declined in many ways since Jason Yellin left. No updates for days on end, and very basic stuff.

Something tells me it's the athletic department, not Molnar, who's holding up the roster.

Remember, the UMass Athletics were rumored to have taken a million dollar hit due to the 2008 recession.

Those cuts had to come from somewhere.

Send a check to UMass Athletics or join the 100-yard club if you want to help.

It really appears that the athletic department do not have their collective heads on straight. Revising the roster should be an ongoing and fairly easy process. The spring rosters should reflect the updated statistical information from the previous season. In the summer, the only new additions to include would be the incoming freshmen and transfers and the photos to accompany each student. If the athletic department can't complete this in a professional and efficient manner, then hire some football-loving English or communications majors to write the bios. I'm sure the roster would be far, far better than it is in its current iteration. The roster is a reflecton of the team and the University, and its quality, accuracy, and appearance are crucial in attracting new student-athletes and, perhaps more important, in how the team is perceived by the FBS. Get with it, UMass! Do it!

No excuse for not updating a roster, Frank, I'm sorry to say. Every FBS team that I have checked has revised their current roster. It's the only (truly) free and cost-efficient means of publicity and marketing.

Constant updating and more accuracy would add to the interest of the followers.. A shroud of secrecy has enveloped this program at a time when more promoting is important to the growth of support. Little is mentioned in the metro Boston media outlets and now less is offered from the school itself. A first year marketing student could do better.
