Game Day--Colorado September 12th, 2015

Another season of UMass football starts today. My 39th consecutive year with season tickets. It's really been great being a Minutemen fan and running the blog. It's been fun interacting with the UMass fans, former players and the school. Sometimes you've got to appreciated what you have.

What we have is a lot of progress. I'm seriously hoping we upset a PAC-12 in their home stadium today. How great is that?

In 2014 our offense could compete with anybody on our schedule. That in itself was amazin'. Last year we didn't have the running game and that is half of Whipple's offense. The Minutemen did not have an FBS-class defense and special teams were well, problematic.

Today we'll the see the results of Whipple's second year of reconstruction. I'm excited. Today is the 5,598th post for the UMass Football Blog. What I'm saying today is what I always say:

Go UMass!!!

UMass expects Trey Dudley-Giles to stick at safety.

Joe Colton wants to hit some Buffs.

Dan Malone has details on TV and Radio availability of the game. Apparently most PAC-12 feeds will be showing the Washington game on the East Coast, but there may be a work-around for DISH Network subscribers.

UPDATE: On my DISH receiver the game is listed on channel 5454.

Read you every day. Appreciate your commitment to and love for the program and the University.

Ditch the bend and break defense. It won't work. We did not give up big plays, but usually gave up 10-15 yards, smh.

If Umass-Colorado tickets weren't flying off the shelves you can only imagine what will be happening with the UMass-Temple tickets. Attendance figures for this one could be downright embarrassing.

If attendance figures are embarrassing then it is on UMASS-alumni, students,staff and parents and friends. They would rather wave the poms poms for Brady, making him and Kraft richer and richer. While ignoring any sense of school pride.
