Thursday--December 6th, 2012

The Hampshire Gazette has moved UMass sports stories behind a paywall. Readers can register and get five looks free a month. That's not a lot.

Like me, most non-Valley readers aren't interested in Northampton news. It's probably going to have a negative impact on UMass sports, who can use all the publicity they can get.

Former UMass coach Jimmie Reid was fired along with three other Virginia coaches yesterday.

One Virginia recruit has already reopened his recruiting.

The Eastern Michigan paper "The Eastern Echo" has an article on the seven MAC teams in bowl games this year.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steve Addazio is taking a number of Temple assistants to BC. Could Jimmie Reid end up there too?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cleveland.com looks at Kent State's Darrell Hazell's moving to Purdue.

Relevant quote from the above article:

"Hazell becomes the 13th former head coach from the MAC in current Football Bowl Subdivision head-coaching positions, including five in the Big Ten and both coaches in this year's BCS Championship Game -- Alabama's Nick Saban (Toledo) and Notre Dame's Brian Kelly (Central Michigan).


Next season, 26 of the 124 FBS coaches (21 percent) would be either current or former MAC head coaches."
