Friday--August 7th, 2015

The UMass website has a pair of football posts: Blake Frohnapfel named to the Unitas Golden Arm Watch List and UMass football wraps up a summer with the Holyoke Boys and Girls Club.

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

Dan Malone previews 2015 league opponent Bowling Green. A win at Bowling Green would be huge for the Minutemen. Most College preview magazines have the Falcons contending with Toledo for the MAC East title.

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

Dan also reports Rob Blanchflower was placed on the waived/injured list by the Steelers.

Behind the Steele Curtain has a story about the release.

Steelers Depot also has a post on Blanchflower's release.

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

The Hampshire Gazette has an Associated Press story about Notre Dame.

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

James Ihedigbo says the Lions defense will continue to try to improve.

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

The BC blog "BC Interruption" has a preseason hate index. For a team that supposedly has Massachusetts all sown up, they sure do think about us a lot.

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

Miami (Ohio) HC Chuck Martin says the Redhhawks are bigger, stronger and faster.

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

Phil Steele has a post on teams with close wins/close losses. UMass led the nation in the latter.

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

The Giants blog "Big Blue" says the New York coaching staff is being careful with Victor Cruz.

Three coaches are being watched very closely by new AD. Men's Basketball, Hockey, and Men's Lacrosse. Initial impressions...not good. Some have already been talked to. The country club days are over. Two different athletic administrators were amazed at the lack of management that took place at Umass.
