I thought UMass was the Patriots team! Great for Thorr and URI. Must be nice to have a great AD and head football coach! :wink:

Bob Kraft is the man. Pretty awesome gesture but wouldn’t expect anything less from him.

Isn’t it an NCAA violation to donate the use of in this case a plane to college athletes?

He didn’t give it to the athletes, he donated it to the Athletic Department….but with the Name, Image , Likeness and whatever, he might be able to give it to a specific athlete!

when uri comes in and drops 40 on us i think we can safely attribute that to them being rested because they didnt have to take a 8 hour bus ride a few weeks ago….joking lol. but seriously a very classy move by the krafts as always!

A Chris Mortensen tweet
Spencer Whipple will assist Sean Kugler in play-calling for the @AZCardinals with Kliff Kingsbury's absence today vs. @Browns. Whipple is the son of former UMass coach Mark Whipple, who spent some time in the NFL and now is the OC for the @Pitt_FB.

This is how a really good AD (Thorr Bjorn) reaches out, not by hiding away or using Twitter or Facebook. Can't remember Bamford doing a Podcast in years if at all:
