Monday--January 5th, 2015

James Ihedigbo gets a mention in this Boston Globe article about New England players in the NFL playoffs.

Toledo's Kareem Hunt ran for 271 yards in the Rockets 66-44 win over Arkansas State in the GoDaddy Bowl. I watched the game and Hunt was the best player on the field. Hustle Belt covers the Rockets win.

Hunt ran over the Minutemen on October 25th, with 198 yards and a 7.6 yards/carry ave. UMass had 52 total yards rushing and the Rockets had 295. Blake Frohapfel threw for 445 yards in the loss.

Toledo's win meant the MAC went 2-3 in this year's bowls.

Phil Steele has the returning starters (an indication of strength for the next season) for the Power Five conferences. Notre Dame leads the nation with 19 starters returning. Colorado is tied for 9th with 16.
