Saturday--August 16th, 2014

Matty Vautour says Mark Whipple has brought fun back to UMass football. Wins will follow as long as Minutemen fans are realistic about the schedule. UMass opens with four BCS teams and Bowling Green, everybody's pick for MAC champion. There will be bowl-eligible teams from the AAC, Sunbelt and MAC that would go 0-5 against that schedule. The 2015 schedule is much more reasonable and the win totals will look much better.
