Thursday--May 28th, 2015

The Rival Notre Dame page previews the Irish-Minutemen matchup.


The SB Nation page "Pacific Takes" page previews the Colorado Buffs season and lists UMass just ahead of 0-11 FCS Wagner in opponent strength. Then again it lists Colorado State as the fourth easiest game. The Rams handled Colorado last year 31-17.


I sometimes have trouble following the train of thought on some of the essays over on Hustle Belt. This article about bad teams (UMass 2012) is one of them.


This article by AP talks about James Ihedigbo's contract status with the Lions.

ESPN says Ihedigbo returns to the Lions workouts.


The NY Giants website says Victor Cruz is making progress and is anxious to return.

NBC Sports reports Cruz is "about 80%".


Denzel Johnson, an athlete UMass was still perusing for its 2015 recruiting class, committed to Clemson this week.


The Minutemen play Florida International on October 3rd. This Bleacher Report article lists HC Ron Turner on the hot seat.

All kinds of blogs and pubs brush right past UMass as an easy game or a joke for next season. The Colorado blogs, blogs fro teams in the MAC, even the people who set UMass for 4.5 total wins, all they see is total wins since movign up and nothing else.

Plenty of teams are going to be surprised next year, I stand by that. And Colorado might just be the first. That's a game we should have won last year. Playing on the road will be difficult, but I have plenty of faith we can win that one.

UMass is not going to be the cupcake a lot of these teams think. By the end of the year when we're sitting on at least 7 wins maybe they won't be so quick to dismiss us.
