Tuesday--June 16th, 2015


I received my 2015 copy of Phil Steele's magazine yesterday. Two full pages on UMass.

Phil has the Minutemen at 4th in the MAC East. He has us #14 in his "most improved" teams for 2015 (Temple was #6 and Ball State was #9).

He has UMass #95 in his Power Poll (UConn is #102).

In his 2016 NFL draft section he has Blake Frohnapfel as #18 in the top 30 QB's and Tajae Sharpe as #23. Jovan Santos-Knox is rated #27 in the top 30 ILBs.

Steele also has UMass #11 in his two-deep class breakdown.

The Notre Dame blog "One Foot Down" says UMass and Temple are "filler' games for the Irish.

CBS Sports has Mark Whipple as a "2" on a 0-5 hot seat rating for 2015. Unless Whipple is caught robbing a bank, his job security has to be among the highest in FBS.

Western Michigan's P.J. Fleck is named by Athlon as one of the top 15 "Coaches on the Rise".
