We can hope Rob Blanchflower will stay healthy for 2015. He plainly has the talent to play in the NFL. All he needs to do is be at 100% to show what he can do.

Last year I watched some of the Giants pre-season games and Talley caught everything they threw his way, but they didn't go to him often. I think it's kinda unusual to spend two years on the practice squad, but the Giants must like what they see.


UMass apparently will have a recruiting event on February 4th. No details yet on the Minutemen Athletic site.


Could Charlie Molnar end up coaching at Syracuse?


Troy completes their 2016 and 2018 schedules, they have UMass at home in the first and visit UMass in 2018.


UMass will play Buffalo away and Miami at home in 2015.


College Bowl attendance was down, TV viewership up.

Talley has had some time on the active roster for the Giants playing in 2 games in 2013 and 2 games this past season as well
