Thursday--January 14th, 2016

Well, I didn't win Powerball last night (I had two numbers), so it looks like UMass football's new Frank Smith Memorial Stadium is on hold...


Rutgers changed coaches and so far they have eight decomitts. That includes a highly-rated pro-style QB Anthony Russo.

I have a link for those players who had a UMass offer or interest prior to signing with Rutgers. Russo is rumored to be interested in LSU or Pitt.

Russo is the eighth player to decommit from Rutgers' recruiting class of 2016 following Nassau (Garden City, N.Y.) offensive tackle Malcolm Pridgeon and Venice (Fla.) defensive tackle Jarrod Hewitt, as well as Poly Prep (Brooklyn, N.Y.) linebacker Elias Reynolds, West Catholic (Philadelphia, Pa.) defensive tackle Tymir Oliver, Grand Street (Brooklyn, N.Y.) wide receiver Ahmed Bah, South Brunswick (Monmouth Junction, N.J.) safety Phil Campbell and Poly Prep (Brooklyn, N.Y.) offensive tackle Justin Morgan, who flipped their pledges following Flood's firing.

Former UMass player E.J. Barthel  who was a recruiting assistant with the Scarlet Knights,was let go when Rutgers changed head coaches.

It looks as if the Big 12 will not expand. That, in turn means there won't be an open slot in the Group-of-Five conferences for UMass.
