Rhode Island info and some comments on the win over the Tribe

The Providence Journal talks about the return of favorite son Liam Coen to Rhode Island. The Providence Journal reports that Rhody's fullback Joe Casey will miss this week's game .It looks like the featured back in the Rams option offense this week will be Jimmy Hughes .

The Springfield Republican also has a Rhode Island article .

The UMass Daily Collegian has two articles here and here .

The transcript of Brown's remarks for the CAA weekly teleconference is here .

If you missed last night's Coach Brown's show, someone asked about Brad Listorti's chances of getting a waiver from the NCAA for a sixth year. Brown said it was "highly unlikely".

I would be remiss if I did not mention some of the great performances of several UMass players at the William & Mary game.
  • Spencer Riddenhour delivered a NFL caliber hit on special teams.
  • Rasheed Rancher had two TD catches and again demonstrated his speed when he gets behind the defense.
  • Matt Lawrence had his best day rushing as a Minuteman and needs only 17 yards to go over 1,000 yards for the season.
  • Liam Coen became the UMass all-time leader in TD throws and he needs only 99 yards to break the all-time yardage record.
The first Lambert Cup poll is out and UMass is leading (scroll to the end of the article). UMass has won the Lambert Cup twice in the past, but never two years in a row.

UPDATE: Matty Vautour has an article that covers injuries (both Rhody's and ours) here .
