I don't know if there is a Football "Where are they now", but at the end of the Jets - Patriots game, I heard Andrew Catalon thank his spotter, (his brother-in-law and former Great Dane punter) Paul Layton.

I caught that! Wasn't sure if it was the same Paul Layton.

Former area college basketball stars happy with their teams elsewhere TU story on CJ Kelly 

AMHERST, Mass. — On Monday night, the University at Albany transfer came out on top of the Siena transfer.

Former Great Danes guard C.J. Kelly scored 17 points off the bench to help the UMass men’s basketball team to an easy 81-56 victory over Penn State and former Saints guard Jalen Pickett, who had seven points and seven assists.

Meanwhile, Kelly spent one season at UAlbany and led the team in scoring after transferring from Norfolk State. He moved on from the Great Danes after head coach Will Brown’s contract wasn’t renewed last season.

He missed UMass’ season-opening win over Maryland-Baltimore County with a knee injury and returned on restricted minutes in a loss to Yale last Friday. He played 30 minutes against Penn State and made three 3-pointers.

“It does a lot, really,” Kelly said. “My teammates encouraged me because my knee got swollen and I knew I was going to be out for some time. So getting my rhythm back during practice, those guys pushed me. They didn’t take it easy on me and they attacked me, so practice being so difficult, and coach (Matt) McCall wanted it to be that way, it made it so much easier to translate to the game.”

Kelly, who didn’t play two seasons ago because of a knee injury, is playing for a UMass coaching staff that includes former Colonie and UAlbany player Lucious Jordan.

“Me especially coming off my knee injury, I needed a good rehab,” he said. “I wanted to play at a higher conference, so the coaching staff really brought me in and one of the trainers I really liked brought me in and they had this plan and system. Me and my family loved it and now I’m here.”

Healy played 24 minutes in Monday night.  14 points while 4-6 from beyond the arc. 4 rebounds, a steal, and 3 assists.

While he started slow, not sure if maybe he was injured or just slowly working his way into the rotation. I hope he comes back and has a huge season.

I also noticed that his team plays at Kentucky this season. So you can add that to the fun weird items in CBB this season: Rizzuto opening the year at Albany, Bucknell coming to town (Newman's previous team) and Healy playing at Rupp this year if he had stayed at UA or where he transferred.

As mentioned elsewhere in the forum ....Coach Abe is moving on to Georgia .... as in Bull Dogs .... lasted a couple years longer than I would have expected at UCF

That’s awesome.  My daughter goes to most of the home games.  I’m sure this will bring some additional excitement to the arena.
