This story from the Portland Press features UMass recruit Andrew Libby.

I've blogged about the 6-0 195 pound Libby before.

Whipple is one of the few modern coaches who utilizes fullbacks in his offense. His fullbacks rarely carry the ball, but do get to catch the ball out of the backfield.

ASFAIK, the only listed fullback on the roster is RSFR Daquan Mack 6-1 255. If Drew Harris ends up being the #1 running back, I'd speculate Shadrach Abrokwah SO 5-9 200 gets a chance as a FB. He's got the strength and build for it; he's played too well to to be buried in the depth chart.


The MAC is allowing fans and students to be part of the conference Media Day.

Eight MAC Conference players have been chosen to the college football "Good Works" team.

Hustle Belt ranks the MAC conference 2015 recruiting totals as of yesterday.


UMass is not in the bottom five of this betting sheet's power rankings.

They do have UMass as 100-1 odds to win the MAC championship (scroll).
