Well, we finally had a game that we could not step on the gas and get out of a bad situation.
The weather was about 42 degrees with heavy rain and gusts to 50 mph. But the field held up real well and the conditions were the same for both teams.
We tied our own all-division record with three safeties. The defense played really well.
The UMass offense didn't. We fumbled the first play of the game and gave the Rams a chipshot field goal on a day that points were obviously going to be very hard to come by.
Nobody made a play on offense. It's hard to win with zero offensive points.
I'll have some images to post when my camera dries out.
However, if you can't take a loss, you should not love football. This should focus us for the next two games.
As I've said many times in the past ----"Go UMass"
