Now that the decision has been made, it's time for the selling to begin.

Dubbed the Together We're One Tour, UMass football is hitting the road to talk up its move to the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Mid-American Conference, beginning Tuesday at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston.

Other stops include New York City (May 26), Cape Cod (June 17), Boston again (June 223) and Providence, R.I. (June 27).

Speaking of the MAC, the Minutemen have faced just three of the 13 teams in the MAC the way it is currently structured.

UMass is 1-1 against Ball State, the 1984 victory the last win for the Minutemen over an FBS opponent.

UMass is 5-4 against Buffalo but all those wins came before the Bulls made the jump to FBS.

The Minutemen are 1-2 against Toledo, last playing the Rockets in 1999, the year after winning the national championship.

Check out this fine story on Kent State's new coach Darrell Hazell from the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Sounds as if the former Ohio State wide receivers coach has his work cut out for him.

One interesting note is is the guarantee the Golden Flashes will receive for facing Alabama this season - a mouth-watering $1.2 million.
