Friday--October 17th, 2014

The UMass alumni site has details of UMass Band Day and a list of all the area bands participating.

Dan Malone has his latest podcast with Michael Niziolek of MLive.com discussing Saturday's game with Eastern Michigan.

Matty Vautour reports freshman QB Ross Comis as well as Elgin Long and Shaq Harris are all playing the role of Reggie Bell on the scout team as the Minutemen prepare for Eastern Michigan.

If it was me, I'd set a priority on containing Bell's ground game. With Frohnapfel at the helm, I don't think EMU throwing for 160-180 yards is going to beat UMass.

A Hustle Belt article by Byron Vance says Indiana is the UMass of the Big Ten, or vice versa or something.

Prior to EMU's victory over Buffalo, they had a pep rally complete with a live bald eagle.


Above video is from a minor league hockey team (the Bakersville Condors)  that brought a live condor to a game as a promotion and things don't go quite as planned.

David Drew of MLive.com picks the MAC winners for week #8.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Akron and Kent State add future OOC games with Nebraska and Alabama respectively.

Remember when I talked about the economic benefits that Penn State brings to Pennsylvania? Mississippi is the latest state feel what college football brings.

ESPN says after week #7, 32 teams remain in contention for the college football playoffs.
