Thrusday-- October 9th, 2014

The Next home game will be at Gillette and and it'll be UMass Band Day. Nearly a 100 Northeast HS bands will join the UMMB for a 3:00 PM kickoff. That should be a hoot. Even for Band Day nearly 100 bands should be some kind of record.

The Band Day page from UMMB's site. The UMMB put on their best performance of the season on Homecoming, so I'm looking forward to what they do next.

I'm not happy to see Blyden hurt but happy to see Woodley getting a chance. It's up to him to show his talent. Kent State may have to go with a walk-on QB, which will cause UMass fans to smack their lips, but remember the Richmond game a while back when we faced a freshman QB who completed one pass, the last of the game with time running out to give them a 7-3 victory...
