Game Day--Buffalo

Good Morning from Buffalo. The weather looks iffy with a 60% chance of showers.

I was looking at last years UMass-Bulls stats. The Minutemen "D" held Buffalo to 405 yards (UMass' fourth lowest of the season). UMass had a strong first half and led 13-0 at the break. The Bulls owned the second half.

Buffalo held UMass to 35-49 rushing and had eight sacks. Hopefully, the Minutemen offensive line will lead the way with a strong rushing game and keep A.J. upright. The Bulls have Mack and Way. I think the Minutemen tandem of Byrne and Anderson can be just as effective. I'm looking for another good performance from the Minutemen "D".

With the Bulls, we ca't afford to leave points on the table with missed field goals and drive stopping INTs. Let's run the rock and beat Buffalo.

Go UMass!!!

Eastern Michigan WR Demarius Reed was murdered yesterday.  That's a shame that a young life has to be cut short. Why anyone would kill a person during a robbery is beyond me.

Hi great blog. Seems like this coach Molnar just calls pass pass pass. they'd have a better chance of winning with more running on first and second downs, setting up 3rd and short. And throwing short passes to build confidence. But Molnar is forcing the pass game. I don't like the play calling.
