Thursday--January 21st, 2016

Yesterday I posted a piece on seven UMass players leaving the program. A number of them would have been fifth-year seniors.

#77 Tyrell Smith
Both Dan Malone and Bob McGovern have an article on Tyrell Smith, who declared ed for the NFL draft.

Some classy quotes by Smith as he prepares for the draft. All UMass fans wish him luck.

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

Bob McGovern also has a post on A.J. Doyle's journey. Again some classy comments by Doyle praising Coach Whipple and UMass.

A.J. certainly "took a couple for the team" during his stay at UMass.  Mrs Blog and I attended the 2013 game at Vanderbilt and A.J., operating behind a makeshift offensive, line took a number brutal hits. He hung in there as he always did.

The Herald-Dispatch reports the East-West Shrine game has a Marshall flavor. Lots of quotes from
Blake Frohnapfel.

NFL.com has some observations from day three of the Shrine game practices and mentions Tajae Sharpe.

A Philadelphia Eagles fan site mentions Tajae Sharpe in five NFL draft prospects.

RealGMPractice says Sharpe has had a great week at the Shrine practices.
