Great minds think alike. I wrote the above before checking today's media links and Dan Malone reports on Blake Fronapfel by the numbers.


Coach Whipple quotes from the Monday MAC coaches teleconference.


Jean Sifrin has been added to the mid-season John Mackey Award watch list.

Dan Malone has a post on Sifrin's season.


Dan also asks if Logan Laurent is the answer at kicker.


The UMass Daily Collegian says the Minutemen seek consistency in this week's practices.


UMass opens at a 14.5 favorite over Eastern Michigan.

Keepers College football rankings has UMass by 18.77


UMass' win over Kent State does not do much for the Minutemen in the Hustle Belt Power Poll.


Matty V. says Whipple indicated that Matt Sparks, J.T Blyden, Shadrach Abrokwah and Marken Michel are all on the mend and may play Saturday.

He also says Kent State safety Elcee Refuge (good name) has been suspended for the first half of the Golden Flashes next game after being ejected from the UMass game for a late hit.


Buffalo fired coach Jeff Quinn, a move Matty Vautour calls odd.

The Buffalo News reports on Quinn's firing.


The NY York Daily News says Victor Cruz will likely never be the same.

USA Today says the Eagles fans did not  gloat.

Then again drunk Eagles fans stole a prosthetic leg from a disabled veteran.

E. Michigan's frosh qb likes to run, 202 yds against Buffalo, I don't have to guess what the defense will be working on this week. Stopping a running qb has been our biggest problem all year. Maybe 4 down linemen and force him to pass?

I expect to see Woodley starting, but who knows.
