Sunday--September 13th, 2015

Well six Buffs fans on the results pool got it right as Colorado beat UMass by 21+.

The Minutemen looked like a team playing their first game. Frohnapfel looked rusty after not playing since early last November. We fumbled the ball after our best run of the first half. Our punter took a knee, which was the same as a blocked punt. We dropped some passes in the first quarter when the game was still competitive.

But most of all, our front seven on defense just got obliterated. Even if we had played better on offense, we weren't going to win that game. It's a fine line on coaching. You don't want to leave your team on the practice field, but UMass needs to run some tackling drills this week.

So the Minutemen have to be resilient. Penn State buried the game tape after the Temple loss. It's another game week starting tomorrow.

BTW, thanks to the Buffs for being gentlemen as they took a 4th-and-long instead of kicking a field goal that would have pushed the score into the 50's.
