New UMass Turf
The above is from the UMass Athletic Dept feed.


The Boston College Blog "BC Interruption" does a UMass preview. It's a fair and non-snarky look at the Minutemen from their perspective. I think the game will be closer and I'll detail that when I do a BC preview.

BC Interruption also comments on the new UMass football facilities.


The Giants Blog "Big Blue View" looks at Julian Talley's chances to make the G-Men's roster.


Fox Sports says new Vanderbilt HC Derek Mason is putting his stamp on the Commodores program.


WR Kevin White is having a good career for West Virginia after choosing the Mountaineers over an offer by UMass among others.


USA Today ranks the MAC ahead of Conference USA and the Sun Belt conferences.

Saturday Blitz.come ranks the MAC #6 in conference QB play.


The University of Colorado is offering a "Football 101" clinic for women tomorrow and campus feminists are outraged.

That BC interruption article does not mention any of the new guys Whipple brought in other than FRO.
I hope Harris, Sifrin, Nesmith, Kenney, Michel take that as a sign of disrespect. Its as if these guys are not expected to do much at all. I have a feeling they will know at least some of those names after kickoff. UMASS D will need to stop the run but if UMASS takes an early 2 TD lead and forces BC to throw it could be a trap game for BC.

I guess they don't expect Harris Sifrin, Kenney, Nesmith to have any impact

Everybody knows UMass struggled against the run while playing the 3-4 defense last year.

I expect most teams, especially the four BCS teams to run right at us until we prove we can handle it.
