UMass looking for true home games and other links

UMass hopes to play more games on campus in the near future. What a shock that playing 90 miles away at Gillette wasn't an immediate success. Our games against the Minutemen would not be impacted. As much as I mock what they are doing, I am all for establishing a long-term series that goes Alumni-Gillette, Alumni-Gillette. That is a huge advantage for us.

Nick Clancy is solidly on the Falcons depth chart. Let's hope he gets plenty of playing time in the preseason games. 

SI predicts five wins this fall. 

Being surrounded by BC guys is making Matt Hasselbeck's transition to the Colts that much easier. 

ESPNBoston broke down things to watch as practice begins. 

Here is a round up of anonymous comments on BC from other ACC coaches. I am amazed by how shallow their knowledge of BC is. It shows we are a real afterthought. That will change soon.

How is that shallow? The comments are about the current/recent teams and are accurate.

We suck and have no skilled players.

We have 2 good players on offense: Rettig and Amidon(ha).

We have 2 good players on defense: Steele and Kevin Pierre . . .

That's it.

It is the barest cupboard in the history of bare cupboards.

Four wins max. We can only move up from here.

Realism or pessimism?
