Thursday--July 17th, 2014

Penn State transfer Alex Kenny is the subject of Dan Malone's latest installment of his UMass Top-25 players for 2014.

Kenney's UMass bio.

As Dan points out, last year the Minutemen had Tajae Sharpe as a WR threat, but not much else. It will be interesting to see if Whipple can integrate all that speed Kenney possesses into the passing offense. If UMass has a deep threat that opposing defenses have to respect, it would open up the shorter stuff.

I hope Blake Fronapfel will be able to call when in a "21" personnel-- two RB's and a TE: "I Weak Right 639"!

Harris is in the I, the fullback sets up on the Weak Side, Tajae runs a curl, the TE runs an out and Alex (the "Z" receiver) runs a "9" route (Fly)....

Bryon Vance of Hustle Belt looks at the MAC's 2014 TV schedule. UMass will make four TV appearances. The previous link about Penn State says every Nittany Lion game for the last ten seasons has been televised, so UMass should make an appearance on the Big Ten Network in addition to the four games listed by Hustle Belt.
