Friday--December 19th, 2014

Neal Brown, a former UMass player and graduate assistant under Coach Whipple  has been named HC at Troy.

SB Nation has five reasons Brown will bring winning football to Troy.

Brown interviewed for the UMass HC job back in 2012. A number of people, including me, hoped he'd get it. Maybe Whipple and Brown can arrange a home-and-home series. That would feature a lot of offense...

UConn's future schedule includes UMass in 2016 and 2017.

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

Temple plays at UMass on 09/19/2015.

Campus Insiders previews the Famous Potato Bowl featuring Western Michigan vs Air Force. Western Michigan went from 1-11 in 2013 to 8-4 and a bowl game this year under P.J. Fleck.

They also preview the Carmella Bowl with Bowling Green against South Alabama.

12 Coaching candidates for the Pitt HC job include three MAC coaches and former UMass assistant Bob Shoop.

OT, but Jaron Johnson, a player for the NBA development team Rio Grande Vipers is friends with another player named Raphael Putney. Both are trying to break into Pro Basketball.

They're friends because---- " Putney, a 6-foot-9 rookie center, also hails from an obscure college (UMass-Amhurst) and was also a tryout invitee."
