Thursday--October 16th, 2014

Dan Malone reports on Whipple's comments regarding saving A.J.Doyle's redshirt year. Doyle played as a true freshman. Austin Whipple already burned his redshirt year at Penn State.

The UMass Daily Collegian looks at the coverage Minuteman WR Tajae Sharpe drew at Kent State. Unlike last year when the Minutemen's offense was Sharpe and Blanchflower and not much else, this year Frohnapfel has a flock of receivers. By my count 16 different players have caught passes this year. Sharpe, Jean Sifrin, Marken Michel, Rodney Mills, and Jalen Williams all have double digit catches. Alex Kenney has 9, but is averaging 19.2 yards/catch.For the first time since we moved to FBS, we have players that other teams have to game plan to contain.

The Collegian also looks at UMass' plans to try to contain dual-threat EMU QB Reggie Belle, Jr.

The Eastern Echo says the Eagles are eager to continue the second half their season the same way the first half ended.

Reggie Bell was named to the Manning Award Star-of-the-Week list for his performance against Buffalo.

Jesse Allen and Alex Alvarado talk smack about the Eagles-Minutemen game.

Check out this story from Football Scoop on Kentucky's new football training facility. Man, the outside looks different, but the inside is a clone of UMass' performance center. I mean exactly, like the performance center.

Quote from the article:"It’s scary to think the type of recruits Mark Stoops and his staff will be able to pull in once this is finished."

The Buffalo Bulls try to keep focus on the remainder of the 2014 season after the firing of HC Jeff Quinn.

The NY Daily News says Victor Cruz can become a source of inspiration for the G-Men.

Tom Coughlin "absolutely" believes Cruz will return as a top receiver.
