Thursday--October 1st, 2015

FIU has their game notes up.

The Panthers have a video interview with Coach Turner and Panther players about this week's game with UMass.

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

Dan Malone has Khary Bailey-Smith is done for the season a Sha-Ki Holnes is unlikely against FIU.

Injuries have Coach Whipple getting creative with John Robinson-Woodgett.

Ross Comis believes he proved something against the Irish.

UMass has a pretty cool highlight video against Notre Dame.

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

The Collegian says FIU is a "must win" game for the Minutemen.

The Collegian reports Mike Caggiano looks to seize the day at kicker.

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

The Boston Herald reports there are talks about Boston College, UConn and UMass playing each other regularly. This would be good news for all three schools. There should be a New England Champ trophy. A New England series would help all three school's attendance and it would be a low cost bus trip. It's too good an idea to not to happen.

Quote from the article:"Eagles athletic director Brad Bates likes the idea of having the three New England FBS schools playing each other on a regular basis."

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

FIU's two wins are over winless UCF and 1-2 North Carolina Central. UCF is so bad a local bar is offering free beer until the Knights win.

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

The Miami Herald says FIU needs to run the ball against UMass.

Temple hopes to use the lessons of the UMass game against UCC.

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

Cleveland.com ranks the MAC after five weeks.

The Athens Post notes the MAC is playing well in the conference's OOC schedule.

Western Michigan looks to have a big MAC season.

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

BTW, two of the three teams UMass has played this year are undefeated. Colorado meets a humbled Oregon. Note that the Minutemen hung more points on the Irish than the Ducks did against Utah.

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

Victor Cruz is hurt again.

Frank, Colorado is not undefeated. They lost their opener at Hawaii.

You're right! I goofed on that. With UMass starting a week late, the opening games seem a long time ago. I'll fix the post.
