Friday--August 14th, 2015

UMass adds South Florida and Maine to future schedules. South Florida is a AAC team and that's where we want to spend our future. Whipple and Co. have always recruited Florida heavily and it'll serve to increase our presence there.

Northeast FCS teams are tougher to come by. With Northeastern and BU gone, and we probably wouldn't want a Patriot league team, so that leaves New Hampshire, Maine and Rhode Island.

Hopefully, the Black Bears won't kick our butts like they did in 2013 :)

Dan Malone has a post on the announcement. He also looks at the future schedules.

The Portland Press-Herald reports from the Maine side.

The Bulls blog "Voodoo Five" is not impressed.

Dan Malone previews the Miami (Ohio) Red Hawks. Most pundits have Miami at bottom of the MAC East in preseason previews. Enjoy 'em in 2015; there are no Miami's on the 2016 and 2017 schedules...


Matty Vautour has some football notes about the future schedules and reports A.J. Doyle will play at TE in 2015. In Doyle's UMass bio he's up to 6-3 238.


Dan Malone reports on alternative uniforms for the BC-Notre Dame game.

The BC blog "BC Interruption" has a post on the Eagles throw-back uniforms.


A Lynchburg newspaper considers the Liberty offensive line including UMass transfer Rich Queen.


Toledo is ready for another shot at NIU.


And now---- Victor Cruz has his own Nike model shoes.
