Saturday--April 15th, 2017

New banners are up at McGuirk.


Speaking of McGuirk, UMass 2017 schedule posters are supposed to be available at the Spring Game. This is not official, so we'll have to see when we get there.

Matty Vautour has a post on UMass receivers Sadiq Palmer and Brennon Dingle. The 6-1 Palmer should be a lock at the "X" receiver. Speedy WR Andy Isabella could be the "Y" or the slot receiver.

One or more of the freshmen WR's could see action. Six foot three Patrick Volcy has been in for Spring ball. JUCO WR Jacoby Herring is 6-5 180 should see action right away. Other FR WR's are Athlete Jesse Britt, Jy'Von Brown and Melvin Hill.

The American Sports Network has merged with two other media companies. This should be good news for the Group-of-Five sports programs who get mostly ignored by ESPN and other big broadcasters.

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

The NCAA has approved an early signing period for college football recruiting and will now also allows coaches to recruit at player camps and clinics.

USA Today has a bullet-list of the changes for 2017 here.

Last year the schedule magnates and posters were distributed in October with one home game left. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

That ASN deal is great news. G5 schools need all the "legitimate" media we can get.
