Downey made some plays in the Spring Game
Thought Vondell Langston another LB looked good in that Spring game and hope he gets a chance to play
I just wish we would hit a QB and expressed this to Sollazzo as he ran off the field after the BC QB just killed us last weekend

UMASS better get a game face on pretty damn quick
Other than that statement, I will keep my comments to myself until they either explode in a game and prove everyone wrong or implode on themselves
I hope it aint the latter
