BALTIMORE - The Colonial Athletic Association held its annual Football Media Day on Wednesday at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. UMass Head Coach Kevin Morris, senior linebacker Tyler Holmes, and senior wide receiver Julian Talley all took part in the festivities. Two hours of Media Day was broadcasted live online at ESPN3.com.

Everything kicked off at 9 a.m. when Holmes, Talley, and all student-athletes in attendance from the other CAA member schools meet with conference commissioner Tom Yeager.

The UMass contingent then took part in numerous interviews with TV, radio, and print press. All three were interviewed live on ESPN3 as well as on ESPN Radio.

The big news to come out of Media Day early on was the announcements of the CAA preseason awards and poll. Holmes and Talley were each named Preseason All-Conference, while Holmes also took Preseason Defensive Player of the Year honors. The Minutemen were selected fifth in the preseason poll, getting one first place vote, while William & Mary was picked to win the conference.
