Wednesday--January 25th, 2017

UPDATE 4:45 pm. My Dish Network sports package lists the UMass-St Louis hoops game tonight at 8:00 PM on channel 418.

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

UMass will be moving its October 7th game with Hawaii to August 26th. Hawaii athletic dept notice here.

This is a good move by UMass. It will give the Minutemen a bye week in the middle of the 2017 season as apposed to a 12-week marathon. Since the move to FBS the Minutemen have had mostly late bye weeks or effectively none at all in 2014. UMass will also be able to start practice one week early.

As the "Week Zero" game maybe a national network will pick it up and generate some publicity for the program.

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

UMass will have its Signing Day event televised by ESPN-3 on February 1st.

Andrew Cyr of the Daily Collegian has a post on the ESPN-3 event as well as other UMass football notes.

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

Mike Trani of "Fight Massachusetts" has a post about last weekend's official visits.

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

David Williams, the South Carolina RB who started against UMass last Oct 22nd, will transfer to UConn.

Tim Kenney, John McCutcheon are the two worst administrators still working. Just imagine you interviewed and hired Charley Molnar, John Micheletto, Derek Kellogg.smfh... somehow some fans think Kenney is a nice guy because he gave them freebies.
