Blog news from the road

Looks like I picked a good time to go on vacation. UMass football news continues to be light. While I'm on the road, I don't have access to the vast UMass Football blog archives, so we'll have to wait for some news for blogging material.

Some thoughts from Logan Utah:
  • The local paper still has Alley-Oop in the comics section
  • On our drive through Logan Canyon yesterday, we had some rain mixed with snow
  • You know on many rural roads people hit deer-----well on this road to Bear Lake someone hit an elk...
  • Football thought for the day----I-A opponent's Texas Tech QB Graham Harrell has passed for 10,260 yards and 86 TDs in the past two seasons.
We're off to Jackson Hole Wyoming. I'll check in from there. Go UMass!

The Tech QB will slaughter the Minutemen. Hopefully, UMass can keep the final score decent but I won't count on it. UMass should have scheduled some MAC or Big Ten teams like Ohio University, Kent, Bufflo, Syracuse, Indiana, Illinois, or Minnosota so they could have picked up a FBS win instead of a slaughter.

Who would have thunk that Appalacia State would beat Michigan in the big house?? Not likely UMass will win, hopefully competitive. I would think the UMass players enjoy show casing their talents in a big time enviroment. I like the idea of scheduling 1A opponents the week before our bye week so we have two weeks off between games.

As do I; if UMass can give TTU a game, what's to lose? And I think we will perform very well. There are some inexperienced spots, but ours is a program that has steadily improved and will continue to, in spite of what opponents are scheduled. I've said this before: A well coached team is one that is never embarrassed or, dare I say, outplayed. Fifteen points would be a respectable spread, but if it's less than ten, I would not be surprised. We have a very solid secondary--one that rivals most FBS teams. The problem will likely be the time with which a receiver can find a seam, and the QB, to release. Go UMass. Hell yeah.

I am not sure if we are going to get slaughtered, but for the rest of anonymous#1 comments, its hard to disagree. When we get to our OOC games we have done nothing over the past decade to establish rivalries.
