It’s early into the football commitment season. Verbals have just started to come in at an accelerated pace, but there is a ton more that must fall into place before 2013 classes are fully evaluated. That won’t stop us from evaluating the class thus far.
Here is how Massachusetts stacks up against some other schools you may have heard of:
The sole point of this is to see — at a very high level — how UMass is fairing thus far against some of the other Northeast football programs. It’s not all inclusive, but this does show that UMass is at least competitive with some of the other big programs in the region.
Editor’s Note: BC, Uconn, Temple recruits are as of 7/8/12.
Looks like BC is having trouble selling tickets to Friday’s Hockey East playoff game versus the Minutemen. Buy ’em up, UMass Nation!
Buy tickets at GroupOn! It’s a great deal.
The joking alliteration above just really fell in my lap. I had to do it. I must start off by saying; this is a pretty good note to start the basketball portion of this website on. Maybe that’s why I am giddily writing cheesy headlines.
82-46, UMass over BC. That has a great ring to it.
I will start out on a positive note for Boston College (since there won’t be many). Freshman Patrick Heckman is going to be a good ACC player.
This game started out very even. It was literally a one possession game until about three-fourths of the way through the first half. Remember, it was in fact 16 – 8 Boston College at one point. It wasn’t until the later part of that half when UMass was able to go on a 29 – 9 run.
