Memorial Day 2023--May 29th, 2023


Mrs Blog and I wish everyone a happy Memorial Day.

It's a beautiful day here in NH and we're going to have barbecue this afternoon.

That there is peace and civilization in my town is not an accident. Remember those who gave their lives to make that a reality.

UMass Football News--May 25th, 2023



Josh Schreiber of WMUA Sports has the second of his analysis of the 2023 UMass quarterback: this time looking at Ahmad Haston.


The NY Post thinks UMass will hit the over with more than 1.5 wins.


Radenka Maric (the president of UConn) was asked if the Huskies were invited to a Power Five conference, would they go?

She said "Yes, absolutely."


Will Colorado leave the Pac 12 for the Big Twelve?

BTW, an FBS leading 71 players have left the Buffs since Sanders was appointed coach.

UMass Football Recruiting 2023--Anthony Simpson


I don't think I blogged about Arizona transfer WR Anthony Simpson. He's a 5-11 190 pound WR/KR. Simpson's UMass bio.

Was awarded the #1 jersey number at Arizona.

Had a highly successful HS career in Bloomfield, CT. 

UMass needs effective WR's and Simpson is listed as one in the spring roster. He also was a valuable kick returner for the Wildcats.

In 2022, Simpson went 19-342 with a 19.0 yards/return average. The Minutemen need all the offensive help they can get. This article discusses the offensive scoring rate vs starting field position.
