Mark Chiarelli of MassLve has a post on the passing of Michael Boland, Jr with lots of quotes from his teammates.

Matty Vautour reports UMass will send a bus with coaches and players to Maryland so they will be able to Boland's funeral.

Yahoo Sports has a post on Boland's death.

The Spun.com has a story on the death of the former UMass captain.

Former UMass recruit Antoine Webster was arrested for 2nd degree murder. Webster was part of 2016's recruiting class, but never joined the Minutemen. I blogged about Webster before.

More from the Miami Herald.

We got a Grad Transfer!!!! Breneman and Ford played with former Towson LB, Bryton Barr, while growing up. Barr is 6' 220 lbs and a leader! Had a great season his freshman year and was a tri-captain his sophomore year. He got hurt after only playing two games during his sophomore year during the 2013 season. He sat out the 2014 and 2015 season due to injury and played well during his final season at Towson in 2016.

The NCAA granted him two more seasons so, he will be a Minuteman for 2017 and 2018 season. Big pick up and adds great depth at a position of need.
