Saturday--August 10, 2013


You remember in my previous post I thought the Blog might go dark for a week due to my next stop's lack of internet. True to their literature, my resort has very limited internet access.

Matty V. reports UMass is confident we'll meet the requirement.


UMass coaching staff and defenders are planing for the new targeting rule.

UPDATE: Griffin's leg is broken.


USA Today has Wisconsin at #31.
