Jeff Thomas at the Spring field Republican has an article on Thunder & Lighting at running back.
He also has an article on UMass' revamped defensive line.
He states that the UMass starters will be David Burris and Michael Hansen at DE. Brandon Collier and Kyle Harrington will be the starting defensive tackles. Brown has repeatedly praised Collier and said that Collier will be an impact player in the CAA. Harrington has gone from a scout team player to a starter on the DL, so he must have really improved.
This year's DL will have more depth with Wilner Alexis, Daniel DeLaire, Shaun Allen, Andrew Kervis and Bob McLaughlin available for packages.
Matt Stolte has been moved to UMass' depleted OL.
This Blog believes this will be a strong group for UMass. Brown likes to play attacking defense and this year we will have enough players to keep the intensity up. I look for seven or eight defensive linemen to play a significant number of minutes.
