Thursday--October 24, 2013

In our 1 1/2 years in FBS UMass has taken its lumps so far. Saturday, we get our first chance to return some favors. Western Michigan put it on us last year 52-14 . This year, the winless Broncos visit Gillette. The Minutemen generally play pretty decent at home. Let's win the game and guarantee a better record for our second year. It's Homecoming and I'm hoping for a good Alumni turnout. The weather looks promising so far. Cooler, but clear. I for one, could use a little payback.

Maine is turning out to have a terrific year. Scored three touchdowns against Northwestern (a little less than the 24 against us), but NU scored 30+ where we got only 14 (with 37 minutes possession time). Good for Maine. But, when we scheduled them, they were struggling and it was deemed a safe victory for UMass. Well guess what. As I said back then, don't schedule FCS teams, period. That loss has done more damage this year than anything else.
