Twelve Days until Kansas State-- 08/24/09

The Springfield Republican has an article on Bob McLaughlin following in his father's footsteps.

BTW, in 1978 Joe McLaughlin led the Minutemen with 76 UT 66 AT 142 TT. Bob, playing as a sophomore down lineman in 2008 had 13 UT 7 AT 20 TT 0.5-2 sacks 1-2 TFL.

TRIVIA Contest: Joe led the Minutemen in tackles in 1978. Jeromy Miles led the 2008 UMass team with 104 TT.

Question: over those past 30 years, how many leading tacklers WERE NOT linebackers? Answer at the end of this blog post.

Is Morris waiting for Marrone to dump a 4th string qb? K state game is in 12 days I dont understand how they havent named a qb yet.

People don't have any patience.

i was expecting him to name a qb after the scrimmage. they have had a full spring and 3 weeks of camp to decide.

Why is it so important for him to tell the public who the QB will be? I would make people wait until the first game and see who comes out.

If you must know-look for # 14 to lead umass. A slight surprise, but is loaded with talent.

Hes the best fit for this offense. would love to see a qb that can run on this squad. another option for defenses to defend.

absolutely agree with last 2 posts-I have been saying it since last yr's Spring Game-Octavious should be in control-Very athletic/run some option/qb draws ect

would love to see #14 get the call. a playmaker at qb that could make things happen. he would add some spark to the offense which is very basic. hes too good of an athlete not to be playing.

How come nobody is questioning who will be the punter?

Whomever is named the starter, he will have two or three games at most to prove himself; after this, it's a new contest.

woodward outplayed havens all preseason. If Morris is going to play favorites rather than who plays better his run will be short lived
