UMass players get a treat from Bart's Ice Cream after practice.

Dan has a feature on UMass NT Robert Kitching. I did a post on Kitching's 2014 stats yesterday. The NT position in the 3-4 defense makes it work if NT has the size and strength to hold his position in the run game and occupy two offensive linemen when the defense is rushing the quarterback. Kitching's a strong guy; he was squatting 600+ two years ago. UMass fans hope he has an All-MAC senior season.


Dan Malone has a post on the Minutemen true freshmen. Whipple praises Sekai Lindsey. As I said (and everyone else), UMass needs more production from the running game. I don't think it would surprise many Minutemen fans, if Lindsey played this year.


Matty Vautour reports on A.J. Doyle's move to TE and the battle for No 2 quarterback.  As I've said before, it would be real nice if Doyle got a chance to shine. Mrs Blog and I went to the Vanderbilt game down in Nashville, and Doyle took a couple of real shots when a makeshift UMass offensive line missed some blocks. He's put a lot into the UMass program.


A Bleacher Report writer predicts Notre Dame's 2015 game-by-game schedule.

A. J. is an exemplary young man and embodies the true characteristics of a team player. I have no doubt that he will continue to help the team this year and next, no matter what position he plays. Remember, Brandon Howard was a quarterback in high school as well. I think we're all hopeful for his success. - Mark
