Wednesday-- December 5th, 2012

ESPN has updated their UMass recruiting page to reflect the three recent verbals.


The MAC loses another coach, this time Kent State's Darrell Hazell to Purdue.

Hazell was the MAC Coach-of-the-Year.

The Chicago Tribune says NIU belongs in the Orange Bowl.

BTW, the Huskies are offering students free tickets to the Orange Bowl.

One of the problems with the whole bowl system is that they make the schools buy a block of tickets at unrealistic prices. If the MAC was not going to protect NIU, the Huskies would be looking at selling tickets at $75 to $225  a pop. The same tickets are available on line for $8.00.


Meanwhile, Boston College hires Temple's Steve Addazio as HC.

BC Interruption reacts.

Addazio is from New England. UMass could face increased recruiting competition in the Northeast. Traditionally, the Eagles have tried to recruit nationally with little success. Addazio could try to change the focus to a more regional approach.
