USA Today ranks Tennessee #18 in their 2017 preseason rankings. UMass plays at the Volunteers on September 23rd. Mrs Blog and I have plans to attend.

The Ohio Bobcats begin Spring practice. Ohio has an interesting OOC schedule in 2017. I think Ohio has a good shot at beating Purdue (3-9 in 2016) and Kansas (lost to Ohio last year 21-37). The Bobcats could be 3-0 OOC when they arrive in Amherst on September 30th.

Sports Illustrated has Boston College and UMass's Ed Pinkham's old school Western Michigan as two of five teams who could suffer a major setback in 2017.

The online MBA was #9 in 2016, now up to #3 in 2017. Even better is it's ranked #1 in the US. Plus the new, and very interesting looking, business school building is on track to be built. I hope this very positive momentum attracts the best football players nationally who want a great education as well as a chance to get on the field and show their skills.
