Thursday--October 4th, 2012

The UMass Daily Collegian says the Minutemen receiving core (I think they meant corps) is starting to make an impact.

The Collegian says Mike Wegzyn is a symbol of optimism .


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- says the Broncos have "supreme confidence" in backup QB Tyler Van Tubbergen's ability to run Western Michigan's offense.

Western Michigan's web site says the Broncos are looking for their first MAC win.

The Broncos got some bad news about WR Jon Henry's practice field injury. He's out for the season with a torn ACL. Strong Safety Rontavious Atkins and WR Eric Monette and TE Gabe Hughes are also out.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ranks the MAC ahead of Conference USA, WAC, Sun Belt and Mountain West. Relavent quote:"I would argue that this is the best non-AQ conference in the FBS."


One condition of allowing UMass to join the MAC in football is four games between UMass hoops and MAC teams.

I picked up Athlon Sports College Basketball magazine recently. UMass basketball fans will see two MAC teams at home and the Minutemen will play two games on the road
