Redshirt Freshmen 2009 Offense 02/11/09


No UMass football news of note today, so let's return to Monday's look at the redshirt freshmen that will be available this spring. I will repeat the cravat that I have no knowledge of any gains or losses in the listed roster.

Offense:
We will also have one additional OL available:
  • Kevin Macon OL. Macon is probably an instant starter on the OL. One of the highest rated players we signed in 2006.
Obviously, the strength of the redshirt freshmen on the offensive side is linemen. We return Valdimir Ducasse Sr., Rob Getek RS Sr., John Ihne Jr, and Josh Samuda Soph. as starters on the offensive line.

One article (no link) said Cedric Gonnet was injured back in HS in 2007. If fully recovered, he could be in the mix at TB.

Rhode Island and Northeastern have announced their schedules.

UMass vs URI Sep 19 and UMass vs Northeastern Nov 7.

The Maine game is almost certainly Oct 31 which leaves Sep 26 and Oct 3 for the final OOC game and the Bye.

After looking at the reviews of the OL, I want to forget how unstable from injuries our OL was this year and how much I like smash mouth football.

Gonnett has incredible speed.

Incredible is a little generous

The OL has been repaired.

Gonnet may go down as one of the fatest RB Umass has ever had. 4.35 40 speed he's just a RSF as well and hes only gonna get faster.

He does not run a 4.35

He does have outstanding speed, but c'mon, a 4.35! Get real.

I don't know if we can count on Getek, didn't he just have a major neck operation because of injuries suffered last season?

The OL will be fine. That's the last group on the team you need to worry about.

I was told a few weeks ago when I was eating at Burkshire that Getek needed or had neck surgery. That is why I asked the question.

Has anyone seen the newest freshman, Sean Unterkofler, increadeble speed, agility and has the complete package for a future starter. I saw his highlight reals on UTUBE and it was impressive.
