Wednesday--June 1st, 2016

Wow! 2016 is moving right along folks. To prove it I picked up Athalon 2016 College Preview magazine yesterday at the grocery store. It's the first of this year's preview magazines I've seen.

They pick us #127, ahead of North Texas. They predict UMass as 1-11.

Athlon predicts UMass opponents:

Florida 8-4 5-3 SEC, third in the SEC East
Boston College 6-6 2-6 ACC , sixth in the ACC Atlantic Division
Florida International 4-8 3-5 CUSA, sixth in the Conference USA East
Mississippi State 6-6 2-6 SEC, seventh in the SEC West
Tulane 2-10 0-8 AAC, last in the AAC West
Old Dominion 6-6 4-4 CUSA, fifth in the CUSA East
Louisiana Tech 7-5 5-3 CUSA, second in the CUSA West
South Carolina 4-8 1-7 SEC last in the SEC East
Wagner--not rated in their FCS pages
Troy 6-6 4-4 Sun Belt, fourth in the Sun Belt (no divisions)
