UMass Football News-- March 16th, 2018


Matty Vautour has a post on the progress of Spring Ball.

The big news is that the Spring Game will be Friday, April 13th, at 6:00 pm. Athletic Dept notice on the Spring Game here.

Matty relates Tyler Hayes (shoulder) and Tyris Lebeau (undisclosed) are both out of action after offseason surgeries.

UMass adds legacy QB Mike Fallon the son of former UMass QB Mike Fallon, Sr. His father won letters in 1976 and 1977. UMass went 8-3 in 1977 and hosted Lehigh in the first round of the DII playoffs. I was there. The Minutemen were down 23-0 and came back to tie the game. UMass got called on a pass interference late in the fourth quarter and Lehigh threw the winning TD the next play (if I remember right). Fallon went 12-29 -138 yards and 3TD's

The AAC is overhauling football officiating oversight. I believe UMass gets its home game officiating crews from the AAC.

Ex-UConn head coach Bob Diaco joins the Oklahoma staff.
