From the UMass coaching staff
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Daily Collegian's Andrew Cyr says its a bowl game or bust for UMass in 2015.

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

NBC Sports says keep an eye on UMass as a candidate for the Conference USA vacancy.

Busting Buckets thinks UMass could join Conference USA as a football-only member. If the Minutemen could stay in the A10 in hoops, then that would be an excellent position IMHO.

I'm ambivalent about A10 hoops. The league's TV contract is weird. Here's the A10 basketball TV schedule (.pdf download). I can't see a A10 regular season game on ESPN or any of  the major networks. The league's TV footprint has shrunk lately.

If Whipple could build us into a bowl-game level team in Conference USA, then we'd be an attractive package for the AAC at some time...

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

CBS Sports returns UMass to its Bottom 25 (just barely). Note the UConn-SMU game for the Bottom 25 crown.

MLive has a review of the five bowl games with MAC conference tie-ins.

The Massachusetts Super Bowl HS teams will use the UMass locker room at Gillette.

No Dudley-Giles on any All MAC squads? Time for a recount. Still wondering why, he fair caught every punt the last two months. As they say,"coaches decision".
