Reading Hawaii's write up on the UMass FB blog they have 8 starters back on O and dropped 46 on us last year . . our 'improved" defense(hopefully) will have to play better to win as is the case with almost every opponent!

Does UMass get to start training camp a week earlier because this game is technically played a week prior to the start of the CFB reg season?

^ Awesome. I think that rule is bogus and needs to be looked at. We got screwed by it 2 years ago when we started in Colorado in "week 2" but glad we can get an extra week of practice in this year.

Has anyone heard anything about this possibly being on tv? I read somewhere yesterday that espn3 might not be an option for it, which would be too bad.

^ I know they were testing our own broadcast equipment during the spring game. Don't be surprised if we produce our own broadcast and then charge for the games.

Good way to make some money considering we gave away the games for free last year to ASN.

Charge somewhere between $5 and $10, and even if you only get a few thousand people to buy it you still help cover some of the traveling costs for the team.

I had an appointment with my dermatologist yesterday. He lived close to where Ford and Brenerman played high school ball. So we talk UMass FB which he keeps close tabs on. I told him that I am expecting a 500 season with a bowl game. I go every six months so my next appointment is on Dec 5 th so we will see how my expectation turns out.

^ bad case of athletes foot? If so, maybe try wearing a pair of flip flops in the shower and locker room. They say that helps.

Not quite. Last year I has a sore on my leg just above my ankle that would not heal which is why my regular doctor sent me to this dermatologist. Turned out that it was skin cancer. He treated it and a couple of other spots and now he has me coming in every six months for check ups. Being away fro MA it is nice be able to speak about UMass sports with someone in the area.

Now for BB the place I was recommended to to have my car serviced just happens to be a Davidson BB sponsor so I get to talk BB with him when I take my car in to be serviced or worked on.
