Friday--January 29th, 2016

If you don't get the Athletic Dept's e-mail newsletter, I received the following:

On behalf of Ryan Bamford, Coach Whipple and our athletics staff, we invite you to be our guest and part of an in-house audience for a live-streamed show officially announcing the incoming football class. The signing class of '16 looks to be the highest-ranked class since the Minutemen moved to FBS level! The lunch and show begin at 11:30 a.m., Wed., Feb. 3, in the Hunt Room at the Football Performance Center.

You must RSVP to Jason Germain at or call 413-545-4290 in order to secure a seat at the luncheon.


Dan Malone reports Tajae Sharpe is out of the Senior Bowl with a quad injury. Yesterday's reports had it as a hamstring, but whatever the cause, it appears he's out.

Rotoworld has a post on Sharpe's withdrawal from the Senior Bowl.


Dan also has a post on The Hanger, which sees its fortune wax and wane with the number of wins UMass athletic dept provides.


The Dallas blog "Blogging the Boys" has a long post on Tajae Sharpe.


BC Interruption ranks the Eagles 2016 games including UMass at Gillette.


UConn loses its athletic director.

I think the invitation you posted was sent to Minutemen Club Members. It costs $14 for the general public.

I got an invite and I'm not a member of the Gridiron Club.

I am a season ticket holder, however.

That blog post about Sharpe in regards Dallas Cowboys and to NFL capability is a must read. Interesting QB perspective. Do doubt next few seasons will be interesting ones now that we're not all chips in on the QB role.
