Friday--September 6, 2013

Mike Wegzyn doesn't care what the point spread is for the Maine game.

Dan Malone says the UMass coaches and players are not looking past the Black Bears.


The Boston Globe has UMass faces Maine in home opener.


Over at Hustle Belt, Jimmy Kelley has a UMass Vs Maine preview.

Hustle Belt also has Week #2 power rankings.


The Bangor Daily News says CB Kendall James is a complete player for Black Bears.


The MAC Report Online has a Conference Wrap Week #2.


The MAC website has video review of the Week #1 conference games.


In other MAC games of interest to UMass fans, Central Michigan may have its hands full with visiting New Hampshire.

Over the last two years, Akron's only two victories were over VMI and Morgan State. This week they get James Madison, which is a FCS horse-of-a-different-color.


The Blog's picks for Week #2

Bowling Green over Kent State. BG gets the MAC East over early.

Penn State over Eastern Michigan. EMU struggled against Howard last week, Howard is not an FCS power.

Miami (Ohio) even against Kentucky. Kentucky lost to Western Kentucky in their opener.

Ball State over Army.

UMass over Maine.

New Hampshire wins against CMU. The Chippewas suffered two devastating injuries last week.

Baylor over Buffalo. The Bulls and UMass have the league's killer schedules.

Missouri beats Toledo.

James Madison over Akron. See above.

Ohio over North Texas. The Mean Green is not Louisville.

Western Michigan over Nichols State. The Colonials lost to Oregon 66-3 in Week #1.

Hopefully our players and HC will not OVER celebrate after tomorrows first home game victory. No Gatorade shower please. We're FBS now and should expect to beat an FCS opponent.

Let the fans celebrate you!!! Go UMASS

Well, that was a wasted post. This was the biggest embarrassment , to lose against Maine.

Why was Molner calling the plays? Today's fiasco was no less that a direct result of poor coaching. That's right Coaching!! Made in MASS what a joke.
