AMHERST, Mass. - The Minutemen continued with double sessions of practice on Monday with an early practice at 9 a.m., followed by a 3:30 p.m., time in the afternoon. Senior defensive back James Carven was honored with the blue MVP jersey before practice started on Monday. The Minutemen are geared up for the Jets-Giants preseason game on Monday night as three former UMass players will be in action: Victor Cruz with the Giants and James Ihedigbo and Vladimir Ducasse with the Jets.
Here is a video update from Coach Morris as the second week of practice begins.
Also on Monday, the Sports Network/Fathead.com Preseason Poll was released and UMass is listed among "Others Receiving Votes" with 45 votes. The Minutemen open the season against the preseason No. 4 William & Mary Tribe with a 3:30 p.m., kickoff on Sept. 4. Defending national champion Villanova is the preseason No. 1, but they are the only CAA team UMass doesn't face in 2010.
