Saturday--April 6, 2013

The UMass Spring Football game will again feature an Alumni Team. The second half will have a traditional intra-squad scrimmage with current roster.

The Enterprise News has another blurb on the UMass Football Clinic on April 13th.

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

Former UMass player DeShon Hardy was arrested and charged in connection with a home invasion in New Jersey. Hardy was a four-year letter winner with the Minutemen from 1999 to 2002.

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

The Buffalo Bulls hope to pound the football behind their offensive line in 2013. The article points out the Bulls OL was a part of Buffalo's win over the Minutemen last year, which was a "big win for us".

BTW, Buffalo may be "rebranding" to increase their footprint in New York.

The Toledo Rockets will practice at the former HS of a Toledo women's basketball player. She's battling cancer and the proceeds will go to help her expenses.

Rant Sports says Steve Addazio has a lot of work to do at BC.

Victor Cruz partners with Jay-Z and wants $10 to $11 million a year.

Hi Frank, Two very disturbing posts today... The news on DeShon Hardy is very disturbing and the news on Victor Cruz is disappointing. Both players were very good players for UMass and I would have hoped they would have learned more at a 1AA school than at a football "factory". Hardy is now in deep trouble with the law and Cruz is showing he is all about the money. How quickly they forget where they came from and in Cruz's case, what they have accomplished so far in life and exactly what they contribute to society. He plays football, doesn't perform brain surgery, cure cancer or teach children. He plays football on a very good TEAM that was fortunate to win A Super Bowl.

Time for a reality check for both.
