Saturday--March 7th, 2015

SUNDAY UPDATE:

Dan Malone has five things to watch during Spring practice. There is a pretty good level of talent in the 2015 Spring enrollees. Being with the team and in a college weight program increases their chance of contributing in 2015.

UMass starts Spring practice today. Matty Vautour has a post on Whipple's take on the start of practice.

It was 10 Degrees here in Jaffrey when I got up. The weather is supposed to moderate this coming week, so practice should be more pleasant.

Matty Vautour says Jamal Wilson will start Spring practice inactive; he's still dealing with a knee injury suffered at Vanderbilt. Wilson had a 4.4 yards/carry average before being hurt, and that was against BC, Colorado and Vanderbilt...

Matty also says Blake Frohnapfel might get fewer reps in order to give more attention to A.J.Doyle, Austin Whipple, Ross Comis, Randall West and Andrew Verboys.

Five new Minutemen will take part in Spring parctice: Randall West, wide receiver Lamarriel Taylor, RB Marquis Young and transfers Tom Rodrick and WR Darren Josie. The roster has not yet been updated to show the additions.

Mark Blaudschan reports the Patriots are interested in producing a bowl game. He also says interviews for the UMass AD position will start today.

The Frost Bowl? It would be nice if it ultimately ended up as the Minuteman Invitational :)

SB Nation previews two of UMass' 2015 conference opponents : Akron and Bowling Green.

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

The NCAA dropped the hammer on Syracuse yesterday. Everyone was expecting Syracuse hoops to be sanctioned, but I did not realize Syracuse football was also involved.

Statement from the NCAA website.

UPDATE: CBS Sports has what it means for Orange Football.

The Big Ten Network says Keith Dudzinski is one of six key coaching changes in the Big Ten.

A bowl game in New England? In December? Really?
