The Orlando Sentinel ranks the Toledo Rockets as #49 in their preseason poll.

Three bowl games in Orlando? It's possible.

Back in June SB nation published its College football entertainment index. MAC report online comments on the MAC's most entertaining team.

The old football saw "Offense sells the tickets" is probably true. Wining helps too :)

Improving the Minutemen's last-in-the-nation scoring offense is Coach Molnar's highest priority. He's an offensive guy. Last year could not have been any fun for him.

Coach Molnar seems to be able to make changes if needed. Last year, the UMass offensive line was probably the poorest performing/most out matched unit in our first year in FBS. This year we have a new O-line coach, a new offensive coordinator and Coach Molnar says he's going to let Coach Bond do most of the play calling.

A Bleacher Report writer has "25 top trios in College Football"". UMass OOC opponent Wisconsin is one, Ball State, Ohio and Toledo are from the MAC.

Speaking of entertaining players, UMass' move to FBS will bring in some opposing players we never would have seen in FCS. Vanderbilt's Jordan Matthews  6-3 205 is Mel Kiper's #1 SR WR for the NFL 2014 Draft.

Matthews is also NFL Draft Scout's #1 WR going into this season.

Minutemen fans will get to see Matthews facing off against UMass' Randall Jette or Trey Dudley-Giles or D'Metrius Williams at Gillette on Setemnber 24th.
