St. John's Eve--June 23, 2013

Today is St. John's Eve, in medieval England and other European countries, bonfires were built to celebrate Mid -Summer.

Today is also a full moon, with the Moon's closest perigee of the year, so there is the potential for largest tides of 2013.

SB Nation's College Football Entertainment Index.

Note that woeful Akron is ranked #84. That's because of the Zips #1-in-the-MAC passing offense.

There's an old saying that "Defense wins the championships, but offense sells the tickets." The UMass offense was at the bottom of college football last year. One of the goals of 2013 would be to jump start the Minutemen offense, even if we did not win many more games. It would set the stage for a better win-loss record in 2014 and 2015.
