Tuesday--October 23rd, 2012

Yea! Matty V. reports that a number of UMass players may return for the Vandy game. Rob Blanchflower, Alan Williams, and Nick Speller are vital to the offense. The Minutemen are a different team with them in the game. Let's hope that Blanchflower stays healthy as #2 TE Derek Beck was on crutches with an ice bag on his leg in the second half of the Ball State game.

Matty also talks about Coach Molnar's approach to discipline. Glad to see that talented freshman D'Metrius Williams was not going to be suspended for this Twitter goof. Coach Reid liked to assign stadium steps runs as punishment. He even ran them at least once himself for cussing in public, if I remember right.

Harry Plumer of MassLive also has some updates on Minutmen personnel.

Plumer also has his "UMass High Five" with five good FBS teams without a conference title. Next week's opponent is one of them.

Vanderbilt's coach sticks with tunnel vision.

The Commodores are staying focused for the Minutemen.

Inside Vandy said the Commodores went aggressive on offense against Auburn.

Vanderbilt blog complains about the student turnout (at the end of the blog post).

Bowling Green LB Dwayne Woods was named MAC Defensive player-of-the-week for his efforts against UMass last week.

CBS Sports has their latest bowl predictions. Lots of MAC teams on the list.
