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.

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.
