Monday--May 12th, 2012

Yesterday, I posted Saturday's win was the first FBS win since Ball State back on 09/01/1984. I entered that into Wolfram Alpha and that works out to 10,297 days or 28 years 2 months and 9 days. Hopefully, the next one won't take quite so long...


Matty V. has UMass gets a lift and a win courtesy of Joe Colton. Matty points out that three of the four INT's against the Zips were by freshmen: Colton, Radall JetteKhary Bailey-Smith. Freshmen LB's Kassan Messiah and Jovan Santos-Knox at also starting.

The UMass Daily Collegian has UMass earns first FBS win.

Harry Plumer of MassLive has three helmet stickers for the Akron win. Gee it feels good to end a sentence like that :)

Akron Sports Now recaps Week #11 in the MAC.

The  gives the biggest upsets of Week #11 and includes UMass (who was a 16.5 point underdog).

The MAC Report Online said UMass capitalized on Zip turnovers.

BTW, next week's opponent Buffalo forced five turnovers of their own against Western Michigan.


CBS Sports says it looks like the five "Mid Major" football conferences (now including the Big East) will get an increase in playoff revenue in 2014.


Victor Cruz dropped a sure TD pass in the the Giants upset loss to Cincinnati.

The program really needed this win. losing week after week Is very hard on the team morale. I can honestly say we are making progress from the shutout at uconn back on august 30th. progress is the goal this season in my opinion. The only progress Morris and crew made was lowering the buyouts the university had to pay out every year they came back. Giant step in the right direction.
