Hello, About using "UMass" or "Massachusetts"[edit]

I'm not affiliated to the University of Massachusetts in any way. I'm only a college football fan. But recently I noticed that the articles pertaining to University of Massachusetts football is one of a selective few college football team in the nation which does not use the formal name of the school in wikipedia. I was looking around wikipedia and also noticed that neighbor UConn huskies use Connecticut Huskies to name articles. Has this been talked about in any other talk page? Has anyone reached consensus on the correct name? Just wondering...

Orphaned references in UMass Minutemen football[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of UMass Minutemen football's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "newdc":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 06:39, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
