Thanksgiving 2012--November 22


Hope all UMass friends and family have a great Thanksgiving today. I have a lot to be thankful for. I've truly enjoyed running the blog and meeting all of you.

Matty V. reports A.J. Doyle will start against Central Michigan tomorrow. Coach Molnar states it will be the start of an open QB competition this spring.

Harry Plumer of MassLive also covers Doyle's start.

The Enterprise News features Darren Thellin's last game as a Minutemen.

UMass AD John McCutcheon says he hasn't had any contact with other conferences about the changes in the ACC and the Big East.  Which is not quite the same as a statement that we would not be interested...

After his win at UMass last week the University of Buffalo extended the contract of Bull's HC Jeff Quinn. That caused quite a stir among Buffalo fans.

The Buffalo News has more on the effect of the new BCS format on the MAC.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, Frank, Mrs. Blog and the rest of UMass Nation.

Just a quick question. I thought Old Dominion was moving up to FBS next year? If so, how is it they are eligible for the playoffs this year? We weren't eligible our last year in FCS. Did they have a rule change?

Go UMass vs. Central Michigan!

I think we were above the scholarship limits in '11.

Old Dominion may not be.

Old Dominion is playoff eligible because they didn't begin their transition this season. They'll be ineligible for the FCS playoffs next year, and ineligible for bowl games the year after that.
