Some Media Day images from the Athletic Dept.


Mic'd up with coach Walker. Coach Walker's UMass bio


Dan Malone has a quartet of articles:

Mark Whipple proud of Tajae  Sharpe's transition to the NFL.

Dan reports Marquis Young is ready to lead the UMass RB contingent.

He says UMass wants JUCO transfer Rod Jones to rush the passer.

Dan also reports Infinite Tucker will not attend UMass as he has switched to track. Patrick Volcy and Antoine Webster will grayshirt. T.J. Rayam and Tyler Thompson will attend prep school. That breaks their verbal and they can sign with another school.

Thompson and Tucker were three-star recruits. T.J. Rayam was two star.


Las Vegas has UMass over/under wins at 2.5


Matty Vautour has a post on Logan Laurent competition with Mike Caggiano to be starting kicker.


Florida HC Jim McElwain has suspended two starters for the UMass game due to a training camp fight. Teez Tabor's Florida bio. C'Yontai Lewis' bio.


BC football and QB transfer Patrick Towles try to put the 2015 season behind them.

Attending prep school doesn't "break a verbal", it supersedes their NLI. A verbal is barely anything in the recruiting world.

Tucker was a 2-star recruit, not 3.

Why have my season tickets not arrived yet?

I remember UNH used to get their tickets out MONTHS IN ADVANCE.

UMass needs to step it up.

Try calling the Ticket office. I got excellent service and even had my own ticket guy. He said "Hello" to me at the Town Meeting. He was nice and even called a second time to to make sure I didn't have any questions/problems.

Call 'em.
