    Jay Burnham recently sat down with Massachusetts football associate head coach Alex Miller to talk about how the Minutemen's offensive line is shaping up for the 2022 campaign. Miller, back for a second season, brings familiarity to UMass' o-line room, which has added competitive depth in the offseason as the squad has brought in guys that push each other and create competition at multiple spots, something the team has been missing in recent seasons.

Alumni, or just a Fan, this is PURE GOLD!

I’m slightly biased as a Proud Alum of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and owe much of Life’s success to the environment that nurtured my growth. But even so, after listening to a single episode anybody that enjoys the competitive and pure tenacity of UMass Athletics, even the diversity of the scholastic paths available, will be inspired. Spoiler Alert for those, although , IMHO I don’t think there’s one, single person, who’s NOT familiar with my esteemed colleague;, fondly referred to as, “The Chancelor”,(a.k.a.), “TD”, Tom Dougherty, UMass Alumni Chairman for Hockey, he’s absolutely PURE GOLD, in the Hisyory of UMass Hockey. That episode BTW, happens to weigh in at nearly 2 full hours. Compared to the 40 minute average podcast, that’s about equal to the comparative size in Character of the; Lord Deputy Mayor,(W. Roxbury, Mass). His persona is larger than life, as is his support and dedication to everything UMass, and it shows in his never ending participation in so many University related events. The Host is a fantastic listen, keeping things always moving along, you’ll never fall asleep listening, and starting with a phenomenal History of the UMass Athletics Hockey program, from its meager start to the powerhouse club that churned out, Frank Vatrano, and Kale Makar both stand out NHL players currently. Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone involved

Living way out on Cape Cod, I have found this to be the ideal way to keep up to date on Umass athletics. You can feel the excitement building for football as the program is laying a foundation for the future. I can follow along as the men’s basketball program works to regain the glory of the 1990s, and celebrate with men’s hockey as they compete to get back to another national championship game.

Umass is rising!

Good, but let’s get more womens basketball in there!

They’re having an excellent season (much better than the men’s team). Would love some interviews and updates!
