Game Day--Western Michigan

Lots goin' on at Homecoming today.

From the Minutemen News Letter: "Parking lots open for tailgating: Noon.

Minuteman March at 12:45 p.m. Be sure to join the Minuteman Marching Band and UMass Cheerleaders in Minutefan Park to welcome the team to the stadium.

The Minuteman Club opens at 1 p.m.

Homecoming activities in Minutefan Park include A Taste of Amherst at Gillette Stadium, featuring your favorites from The Hangar (Wings Over Amherst), Antonio's Pizza, the Black Sheep Deli, Moti, and White Hut; and the Amherst Ski & Board Club's sale and expo. (Note: The ski sale and expo has been moved from the Putnam Club West to Minutefan Park and will start at noon rather than 10 a.m.) For full details, visit the Alumni Association's game page.

With forecasts calling for a mostly sunny day with a high of 56 degrees, it looks like tomorrow will be exactly the kind of day when you want to be out watching a football game.

Coach Whipple said we would take our lumps in the first couple of years in FBS. Last year Western Michigan laid it on us 52-14. The Broncos had 32 first downs and 551 yards of offense.

I'd like to see the UMass defense change that around in 2013. We owe a lot of teams so far. Western Michigan would be a good time to start some payback...

Hope to see everybody at Gillette today. Go UMass!!

Let me be the first one to say, this idiot of a coach needs to be fired tonight!!! How do you make the decision to go for two? I'll tell you, because this guy is self centered a man full of himself and hoping to win the game so that he can give post game comments if how he win the game.

Anyone and I mean anyone that supports this guy from hear out are as delusional as he and the AD are! He did not give our players the opportunity to fight for their first OT win!

To all the anti- Molnar crowd, save it, he is your coach for the next couple of years- hope he gets better. I'm a UMASS fan- no matter what. Over 20k today shows the program is improving. UMASS football deserves better days in the future, as well as a little more lucky breaks. That kid almost caught the onside kick in stride.

Not sure we have another win on the schedule this season. That one slipped away.
