Tuesday--October 8, 2013

Matty V. says UMass will stick with A. J. Doyle. He goes on to list this week's casualty list.

The following is a cut-and-paste from Matty's article:

 "INJURY UPDATES — Bedell and Woodley returned to practice Monday, as did receiver E.J. Burston, linebackers Jovan Santos-Knox, Ed Saint Vil and Tom Brandt, the latter of whom was limited.

Broadnax, linebackers Steve Casali and John Robinson-Woodgett, safety Joe Colton, defensive lineman Trey Seals and receiver Shakur Nesmith did not practice because of injuries.

Senior defensive lineman Kevin Byrne, who missed Saturday’s game for “non-football reasons,” didn’t practice. According to UMass spokesman John Sinnett, there is no update on his status."

He also mentions future UMass QB Randall West. The UMass-bound QB led New Jersey in passing last week with a 17-26 406 3 TD effort.

Dan Malone has Week #6 helmet stickers.

Shakur Nesmith tweets he may take a medical redshirt.

Dan discusses the coaching changes at Miami (Ohio). It would have been nice if Miami had waited one more game to fire Treadwell. We need a win like we need oxygen right now. Sometimes a coaching change gets a team fired up as the staff and the players close ranks. Let's hope Miami struggles for one more week.

A weird Minutemen season got weirder as potential redshirt RB Dequan Mack tweets he might get some reps at DE.

Jimmy Kelly of Hustle Belt has some comments on Mack's tweet.


Sports Chat Place previews the UMass-Miami game.

Miami's website also has the Red Hawks'  game notes.


Michigan State's HC Mark Dantonio criticizes Miami's firing of Don Treadwell.

Cincinnati.com says a "helpless feeling" among the Red Hawks players led to Treadwell's firing.


Two new bowls will bring the total to 39. The MAC conference will be eligible for both of the new contests.
