Sunday--September 23rd, 2012

Some random thoughts about the Miami (Ohio) game.

1. Hey, we didn't win the damm game, but we were highly competitive in our first ever league game. We definitively need some more recruiting success, but we're going to give the league a hard time in a couple of years.

2. Kessan Messiah needs to start.

3. Michael Cox was the best RB on the field. He went   30-190 Loss 2 188 Yards  2 TD 24 Long 6.3 yards/carry. He did a spin move on one carry that looked like Marcel Shipp.

4. 471 total yards and 26 first downs. That's progress. We made a bunch of mistakes, but that can be corrected.

Cox's back flip TD made USA Today.

Matty V. says despite improvement, UMass is still winless.

Matty also has Kessan Messiah made an impact. Unfortunately, D.J. Adeoba may be gone for the year.

The Boston Globe said UMass stumbled in its first MAC game.

MassLive states Michael cox gouged the Redhawks defense for 188 yards.

Plumer said missed opportunities cost the Minutemen.

Harry said the Minutemen's inexperience showed.

The Boston Herald said UMass missed out.

The Redhawks site says Miami pulled away.

Cincinnati.com said Dysert lead the Redhawks past UMass.

The MAC conference had a good day Saturday with wins over Iowa, South Florida and UConn.

Where we were. New Hampshire lost to Old Dominion 64-61.

Definite improvement. Cox recalls Steve Baylark. I think he's only going to get better as the season progresses. Defensive line was getting pushed around. Too much arm tackling in the secondary. I would like to see Doyle or Hill get a chance to play.

LIke the old unis better; they were distinct. We look like WF or Cincinnati
