Friday--February 8, 2013

Yesterday I talked about the offensive line and UMass' dismal running game. The addition of two RB's in this year's recruiting class as well as the offensive line mentioned yesterday have the potential to seriously improve the Minutemen's effectiveness this year.

Harry Plumer has a story about the whirlwind process that brought us Lorenzo Woodley.


I think Delquan Mack will also be a valuable addition to the UMass backfield. The 6-1 245 pound power back should improve our short yardage game. This article features Mack and his signing with UMass. In 2012 UMass went 74/305 36% on 3rd downs and 14/35 40% on 4th downs. Mack could make an immediate impact there.

Seacoast online has a story about Logan Laurent's signing with the Minutemen.

This article features UMass recruit Arthur Williams.

I think this quote  is a misunderstanding by the sportswriter, but from his keyboard to God's ear:

"UMass, currently in the Mid-American Conference, but slated to move to the Big East for the 2014 season, is a big step to take, both football wise and scholastically."

Matt Sussman has an article on the imaginative use of hashtags by Coach Molnar and his staff on LOI Day.

Former UMass kicker Ian Maltz has signed with Albany.

The Bangor Daily News has an article on the University of Maine's 2013 schedule and its two FBS games (including UMass).
