Friday-- August 29th, 2014

UPDATE: I received the UMass Game Day Guide by e-mail. It's available in a browser here.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The UMass Radio Network adds 50,000 watt WXKS 1200 Bloomberg Radio. That should give us a big signal in New England for Minutemen football and basketball.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The UMass game notes for BC are up.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Boston Herald has a story about Boston College's offensive line. The Eagles' line looks to be:

Four fifth-year seniors and one senior offensive lineman. I know what I'd do if I was coaching the Eagles. Their starting RB will probably be Myles Willis SO 5-9 203. The Eagles also have a four-star Freshman RB Jon Hilliman 6-0 215.

The Boston Herald says new-look UMass ready to take on BC.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Boston College Blog Soaring to Glory expects a crowd of 20,000 for Saturday's game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jesse Allen of Hustle Belt trades questions with the BC Interruption.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The MAC conference season opened last night. Akron and NIU cruised to easy victories over weak FCS teams and Central Michigan struggled with Southern Conference Tennessee Chattanooga.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

BTW, Temple crushed Vanderbilt last night. Hope for UMass on September 13th?

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Michael Cox ran well in the Giants' game last night.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steeler's Depot has some game film of Rob Blanchflower against the Eagles.

Thanks for the great coverage over the years. I don't know what the final score of tomorrow's game will be but I am confident it is the start of a new era. You can't just erase the two years with Molnar but I feel like tomorrow is when we really start our FBS journey. We will be competitive this year on both sides of the ball and I see us winning 2-3 games in the MAC.

I can't wait for 3:00 tomorrow!

Yeah, I think Whipple has done as much as anyone could in seven months. The offense was a train wreck last year. We have a harder schedule this year, but I think we'll look like an FBS team. Next year, six or more wins would not be out of the question, IMHO.

Be loud on Saturday UMASS fans-right from pregame on. I hope UMASS gives it to BC on the jumbotron-Chaz alley oop to Maxie Esho for a slam against the lowly BC eagles and their fair weather fans. They did not go to that game,just like this one(7k sold thus far by BC), so make them watch it, and fire up the UMASS faithful!!
