Whew! Impressive start to our FBS journey. What--maybe five to six bowl teams in the first nine games?

One of my favorite mixes when I lift weights: Metallica's "Jump in the Fire". Turn your computer speakers all the way up!

Tough schedule for umass in it's first year in fbs. I don't see any wins on the schedule next year.

If we don't have a lot of injuries, Akron, Buffalo and Central Michigan are possible...

Problem is we really don't know what we've got with this team. I think that last years disappointing record was a "false barometer" of measurement. I feel that coaching dragged last years team down and it wasn't necessarily a lack of talent. I'm hoping the new coach and staff will be a huge factor in elevating level of play and maybe we'll get a couple of MAC wins. Coaching is huge at this level.

You never know. I say three to five wins.
