Great news about James Ihedigbo and 1998 National Championship team making UMass HOF.

Also, glad to see Matt Jordan get some press. Jordan was a beast at FB and he thrived on blowing-up Defensive linemen and Linebackers. When he given the opportunity to "haul the rock" or catch passes out of the backfield, he seldom disappointed. His late 4th quarter first down in the semi-finals in Louisiana was huge,mostly sealing the deal.

Don't I remember Jordan catching a swing pass out of the backfield and hurtling a defender for a big gain? Awesome play.
