There's been a couple of comments about 2015 recruit Andy Isabella's recent 60-yard dash time. This article from November of 2014 features Isabella.

Ran a 4.39 40 at a combine.

The image above is from an article from on November 2014 about Isabella's game winning TD run.


Dan Malone has a post on Coach Whipple and Coach Kellogg sharing their thoughts on out-going UMass AD John McCutcheon.


Dan also talks to UMass recruiting coordinator Spencer Whipple on 2015's signing day.


SB Nation has four MAC teams in a list of ten Group-of-Five conference teams that had good 2015 recruiting results.


A SB Nation writer thinks UConn should move it's basketball program to the Big East and football to the MAC.


CBS Boston has what to do now that football is over. TV sucks with no football.

Disappointed about how we let Taj-Amir Torres from Amherst Regional HS-the 100 m state champion in 2014 end up at hated BC. I get that he has lived in Amherst and wants a change but to have your head coach a former Umass football player not seal the deal is discouraging.
Saw Taj at the Spring game and encouraged him to come and play at Umass-maybe I should keep my mouth shut!!

Recruiting is tricky. Some local kids want to play were their friends and family can see them play.

Some kids just want to get the hell out of Dodge.

I am very impressed with the efforts of the coaching staff in this year's recruiting class. This was a critical year, and the foundation for the offensive line has been set. Improvements for the defensive line, begun last year, have been complimented by some bog bodies this year, and the secondary, running back, and kicking game all have the needed depth and/or talent to move forward. TE remains unclear, at least an athletic replacement for Sifrin, and we need to develop the replacement for Blake, arguably our most pressing concern next season.

Frank, your coverage of recruiting this year is better than in any previous year. Thanks for that. You're getting much better with the milage.
