Saturday--February 27th, 2016

This article from SB Nation takes a look at trends in recruiting success. Worth reading. Guess who has the most positive trend? Quote from the article:

"Largest positive change in five-year rankings: UMass (+11), UNLV (+10), Baylor (+9), Pittsburgh (+9), Texas A&M (+8), Arizona State (+7), Minnesota (+7), FAU (+7), Temple (+6)"

Note this good news depends almost entirely on our 2016 class. If Whipple and staff can deliver another good class for 2017, then there should be authentic light at the end of the tunnel for UMass fans.


This link from ESPN looks at some of the New England prospects at the NFL Combine. Tajae Sharpe comes in later in the article.


Dan Malone has a post on Sharpe at the Combine.


The Cape Cod Times reports Bubba Pena will be inducted into UMass' Hall of Fame. Pena won letters in 1969 and 1970. First team All Yankee Conference in 1970.


The WR's TE's and QB's work out in the NFL Combine today starting at 9:00 AM. It's available on the NFL Channel. Check your provider for channel number.
