It's on A Jersey Guy, so take it with a grain of salt. I hesitate to even link to that website. But I'm going to anyway, because Old Mr. Guy poses a truly delightful possibility: the possibility of Frank Spaziani to UMass following the dismissal of head coach Charley Molnar after two ugly seasons at the helm of the Minutemen in FBS.
The question, of course, is where does UMass go from here? Two quick answers. 1. Former UMass coach Mark Whipple 2. Former Boston College Coach Frank Spaziani. 3. Towson Coach Rob Ambrose Whipple and Spaziani would take the job if asked. According to sources both men are interested in talking to UMass.
Oh man, talk about a perfect match. Coach Sadface would surely energize the program.
As much as we like to rip on UMass here, there's no way they would do this. They can definitely do better. But we can still dream. #Spaz4UMass
Boston College defensive end Kasim Edebali has done his individual best to honor a group commitment. The 6-foot-3, 246-pound senior from Hamburg, Germany, via Kimball Union Academy, will play his final college game when the Eagles (7-5) confront the Arizona Wildcats in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl on New Year's Eve in Shreveport, La.
Check out how the Eagles in the NFL fared last week.
The two best running backs in the nation square off in Shreveport, La., giving this bowl game some added luster. Andre Williams ran for over 2,000 yards for the Eagles, while Ka'Deem Carey ran for 100 or more yards in every game he played this season. The key difference, though, is at quarterback, where the Wildcats have dual-threat B.J. Denker. The Arizona offense is more varied, and that gives the Wildcats the edge going into this game.
David Aldridge, Duke Report: No team in America has been more disappointing this season than Boston College. The Eagles showed promising signs as a young team last year and appeared ready to take the next step under head coach Steve Donahue, but they're moving in the wrong direction.
A Mahopac, N.Y. native, Santini showed what he does regularly when making a first-period, cross-ice pass to Skjei, who made a perfect outlet pass from his zone to the Czech blue line to a teammate. "Look at that transition," Starman said. "How quickly that was, D to D, and up and in. Possession is established. Transition from the defensive zone to the offensive zone should be less than 7 seconds. That was about 3."
The U.S. National Junior Team got off to a rousing start to the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship with a 5-1 victory over the Czech Republic. Team USA got goals from five different players and avoided that first-game lull that can lead to rough starts for some teams.
Twenty former Eagles are active on NHL rosters. See how they did over the last week in regular-season action.
Sophomore McKenzie Meehan was named to the U.S. Under-20 Women's National Team 20-player roster for the 2014 CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship by the head coach Michelle French on Monday, Dec. 23.
