Game Day Akron----November 10th, 2012

It's been a hard year for UMass fans and the team. Everyone knew that a 5-6 FCS team was going to have a rough time in 2012 season. In fact, the Minutemen have probably played six bowl-level teams thus far. But losing wears on you and I thought that the UMass morale cracked somewhat in the last two games.

The Minutemen desperately need something to go right. UMass should have a chance to win one of the final three games. We need to get some positive momentum. One thing that would do it is for the Minutemen offense to show some life. Hopefully, the offensive line will not be shuffled around for these last three games and UMass can get a running game going. It would be good if one of our QB's could show some spark as well.

I don't know how UMass will do in these last three games, but I'm still a UMass fan. I'll quote:

"Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, give up. Never give up. Never give up. Never give up."

-- Winston Churchill, October 29, 1941 to the students of Harrow School.

Go UMass!!!

No matter how bad things get, probably no team has a relationship with its fans as poisonous as do the Philadelphia Eagles.

All agreed. My only hope was for slightly more competitive games, where one could project a vision, manifestly, in coming seasons. But you are right on all counts. Love the W.C. Maxim. Go UMass!

Would love to have Akron's stadium on campus.

End of the 3rd quarter, UMass leading 15-7! I'm going out on a limb and throwing caution to the wind...CONGRATULATIONS UMASS ON YOUR FIRST FBS WIN!

Awesome game by the defense!!!

The UMass "D" has played well against offenses without a Heisman-candidate running QB.

Nice to see them get the win.
