Tuesday--May 26th, 2015

UMass has the formal notice that Tom McElroy has been hired as Associate Athletic Director of External Relations.


The Notre Dame blog "One foot down" previews the Minutemen-Irish game. It's a fair look with a minimum of snark.


I picked up the 2015 Athlon College football magazine Sunday. It has UMass 2nd in the MAC East and Blake Fronhnapfel again graces the MAC synopsis page. Athlon predicts the Minutemen going 6-6 and 5-3 in the MAC.

Neither Athlon nor Sporting News predicts a bowl game for UMass with a 6-6 record.

ESPN says  preseason magazines spark excitement for college football.


Former Akron WR Zack D'Orazio signed a free agent contract with the Pats.


College Football Talk looks at the AAC East. This could be a good year for UMass' OOC opponent Temple. Athlon picks the Owls 2nd in the AAC East. Temple has an excellent defense as they were fourth in the nation in points allowed (17.5) and forced 30 turnovers. The Owls return 10 starters on defense, so they should be one of the top defensive schools UMass meets all year.


Victor Cruz is scared of frogs.

Nice to see basketball team gets the support they deserve. Going to London and Paris on European trip this summer. Hopefully no one calls the Globe and whines about this. Have they received the OK from Ed Rubin?

Although Ed left himself open in the Globe article, let's not bash anyone by name in anonymous comments.
