Monday--October 29th, 2012

Good Morning from Nashville. Our flight home has been canceled due to the hurricane. Southwest says they'll try again tomorrow to get us to Manchester via Tampa.


The UMass Daily Collegian says UMass was routed at Vanderbilt.

Harry Plumer of MassLive awards helmet stickers for the Vanderbilt game. Note the number of true freshmen earning the awards. This year is tough but better days are coming.

SB Nation says UMass was clocked by the Commodores.


SB Nation Boston has a post on BC's win over Maryland. The Terps were down to their fourth-string QB due to injuries.


USA Today says the MAC's banner season continues. Six MAC teams are now bowl eligible. Figures, the year we join, the league has one of its best ever on overall strength.

The Big East is 1-4 against the MAC this season. Who's the "Mid-major league" now?

"Hustle Belt" has the MAC power rankings for Week #9.

If you have the time, make it to Demo's for a great steak--one of the best in Nashville. I think there are two or three locations. Have a safe flight.

Is it me or did the support and interest of umass football totally drop off this year. The MAC is just a league of no names, were not winning and the umass marketing dept gets an F. Our attendance is the worst in d1 and dropping. I think we had more support when we were in CAA and had natural rivals like UNH, Maine, Delaware, Nova. Playoffs were an option as well.

Umass had an inept coach who did not recruit for 3 years,with a few exceptions. We are seeing the fruits of this now. Paid attendance is actually up this year,as are the cost per ticket.We just need time to get more fballers and more interest will come. Nobody cares about the CAA,outside of Delaware.Umass people are so apathetic and negative!! We are playing 18 yr olds vs 22 year olds. Be patient.

any thinking person knows it will taake some time to We all need some patience AND people need to show up and support the team and the program. Some of the negative comments are just unbelievable, especially in light of the fact that any thinking person knows it will take time to build up to the level of talent necessary. 227
