Saturday--April 23rd, 2016

Georgia has added Murray State to its 2018 schedule. Note that the FCS Racers will receive $500,000 for their trip to Athens. UMass will receive $1.5 million.


The 2018 schedule now looks like:

Sept. 1 at Boston College
Sept. 8 at Georgia Southern
Sept. 15 at Florida International
Sept. 22 vs. Charlotte
Sept. 29 at Ohio
Oct. 6 vs. South Florida
Oct 13 Open
Oct. 20 vs. Coastal Carolina
Oct. 27 at UConn
Nov. 3 vs. Troy
Nov. 10 vs. BYU
Nov. 17 at Georgia
Nov. 24 Open

The Minutemen will have to add another team to fill a 12-game schedule. If they are going to get a Northeast FCS team, October 13th would probably be only date someone would be available. That would preclude an off week for the 2016 schedule.


SB Nation has a post on dream series if more college football teams had linked hoops series a la UMass' recent signings with Georgia and South Carolina.

Who is the biggest hater of umass, Eldonabe or JoleonLescott? Both spend day after day ripping umass. What a life. Frank, good job keeping the trash away from your blog.

This has become the only UMASS fan site. Keep up the good work and keep the miserable away.
