Wednesday before the Boston College game--September 7th, 2016

Mike Traini of "Fight Massachusetts" recaps the Florida game.

UMass did knock the Gators out of the Top 25.

Dan Malone has UMass a two touchdown+ underdog to BC in the Battle of the Bay State.

BC Interruption has BC vs UMass depth chart.

Matty Vautour reports UMass players weren't satisfied with just keeping it close against the Gators. Matty says WR Jalen Williams is not practicing, but could play anyway against the Eagles. Right now the WR corps looks somewhat concerning. Except for Andy Isabella, nobody looked like a go to guy for Comis. TE Adam Breneman looked a little rusty in his first game back from two years off. Hopefully, he will be more involved in the offense this week. Some quick passes to the TE will help Ross Comis deal with BC pass rush.

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

Ryan McGee of ESPN has UMass in the "Bottom Ten" in his column. Not a great journalistic effort. He has Buffalo and Albany previously playing in DII rather than FCS.

Keepers College Football rankings has UMass at #120 after week #1 (.pdf download). Note that Keeper is a computer guy and computer algorithms tend to be inaccurate for the first month or so because they're working on last years stats for the first couple of games. Computer rankings are the most accurate at the end of the season, when you don't need 'em.

Massey Computer rankings has UMass at #116, one notch below FIU at #115.

The Boston Herald says the Eagles must finish better against UMass.

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

September 17th foe Florida International found a deep threat in WR Stantley Thomas. His FIU bio here.

The Panthers list three co-starters at RB.

Fox News has "Who in the world is Tajae Sharpe."

Fantasy Football Today reports Marcus Mariotta says Tajae Sharpe makes it easy.

Vladimir Ducasse worked out for the NY Giants Tuesday.
