Saturday--Bye Week #1

Mark Chiarelli of the Hampshire Gazette says A.J. Doyle and the offense seeks consistency.

The UMass Daily Collegian has A.J. Doyle is living the dream as quarterback.

The Minutemen's offense gets another stiff test next week in Bowling Green. After facing three BCS defenses in four weeks, UMass gets another team with a BCS-class defense. As I said in yesterday's blog post the Falcons lead the MAC in scoring defense and total defense. They're no slouch in offense either, being third in scoring and second in total offense. If the rejuvenated UMass defense could get some turnovers and give the offense some short fields, then maybe we could get some momentum going. I don't remember any short fields so far in 2013. Next week would be an excellent time to start.
