Pretty thorough assessment. It has it's own thread over on the Boneyard and I don't think the majority over there are looking forward to our game this year.
It's a nice write up and on the AAC board as well.

The PAC-12 presidents passed a rule preventing 5-7 PAC-12 teams from going bowling.

According to the Associated Press, the presidents of the conference passed a rule that prevents teams with 5-7 records from going to bowl games even if their APR score would qualify them under the new legislation.

Since 2015, when the expanding bowl lineup forced a change in NCAA rules to allow five-win teams to accept bowl invitations if there aren't enough bowl-eligible teams to fill bowl slots, five teams with 5-7 records played in the postseason.

^ CBS is blocked at work... Why wouldn't they want to allow as many of their teams to go to bowl games as possible? Obviously this is good news for UMass - although our biggest hurdle is wining enough games to be bowl eligible, not disallowing other teams from attending.

Five bowl games was plenty. This watering down of anything of value is symptomatic of this country's ills. JOMO.

I wonder if we were in the running for this BC/TE transfer to Maine. A former 3 star from NJ.

He didn't want to sit out is my guess, so no.

Only those with time machines, I believe the first practice is Sunday.

In the intro for the new Daily Hampshire Gazette reporter, he referenced Sunday first practice. Probably reported today and had other activities.
