Thursday before Boston College--September 8th, 2016


Nice video about the Gators game from the UMass athletic dept.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Additional buses have been added for UMass students wanting to attend the BC game. Good work students! It's been a long time since I watched the Minutemen beat Boston College. May you not have to wait a comparable time.

Mike Traini reports 20 bus loads of students will be traveling to the game.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

True freshman OL Raquan Thomas is the feature of this post by Matty Vautour. Great start to Thomas' career. He's got an NFL body. The sky is the limit if he works hard. Everyone was saying he'd be gassed after one quarter at the Swamp, but he played most of the game. Hope he gets to squash some Eagles this week.

The UMass Daily Collegian has UMass preparing for the Battle of the Bay State.

Andrew Cyr says UMass needs to provide a reason for fans to invest with the team.

The Collegian reports UMass' defense is ready to tackle Boston College.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

The BC student newspaper says the Eagles can capitalize on UMass' struggles.

The Heights says BC needs to take advantage of a easy win over UMass. Bulletin board material from this article for Raquan Thomas and the UMass O-Line:

"If BC can replicate its effort from Week One, it should have no issues dominating UMass’s offensive line and getting to Young."

The Enterprise News features UMass safety Jesse Monteiro. His UMass bio.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Boston College's defensive end Harold Landry, who has been limited by a leg injury, should be good to go against UMass.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

UMass LB Shane Huber and BC RB Jon Hilliman played on the same team at St Peters Prep in NJ.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

FIU, UMass opponent after Boston College, plays at Maryland this week. Campus Insiders previews the Terps-Panthers game.
