One week to Boston College--August 23rd, 2014

Matty Vautour has superlatives from training camp: best looking Minutemen player and best athlete.

He also has "Can UMass exceed low expectations?" The answer is yes. I really don't know why we are ranked below teams like Eastern Michigan. UMass does have a significantly tougher schedule this year. We play four BCS teams OOC (and nobody, including Alabama does that) and we play three of the top four teams in the MAC.

Hey UMASS-how do students get into game? All you have sent is info about taking the bus from Amherst. Move in day for most is Sunday, so we will be still at home. Does my student ID get me in ??

They just want to make it tough on UMASS and bloody their nose and make the "pretty boy big schools" look good
I bet UMASS proves them all wrong this year
GO UMASS!
