Game Day Ball State--October 31st, 2015

The weather in Muncie is supposed to be highs about 53 degrees with PM showers. Winds are to be about 15 mph. Rain and wind would not be good for our passing game, which has been all our offense to this point.

If we are going to make a run at the end of this season, the time is here. UMass has played a string of good teams in 2015. However, the Minutemen have looked less formidable than I had hoped. Our pass-only offense has stumbled at times. Probably because of injuries, the Minutmen defense has not improved this year.

However, UMass has showed flashes that it can do better. The offense scored on Notre Dame and Toledo. The defense played tough against FIU and Kent State.

Ball State is not a good team. Let's play both haves of the game and with both offense and defense and get a second win of the season.

Go UMass!!!!

Not sure what is worse-no pressure on QB- or poor corner coverage? Help!!

Listening to the game on the radio instead of watching in person or on tv gives you a different perspective.

Listening today I realize we have little or no pressure on the opponent's QB, we have little or no run blocking from our O-line, our kicking/punting game is pathetic and our players lack discipline.

Too many penalties, too many missed FG's and poor punts, too many three-and-outs. This team will be lucky to win three games, let alone six.

Comis would have run for over a hundred yards in 1st half alone. UMASS has one receiver, makes Fro highly predictable, and easy for the defense. Mixed it up, it is not a demotion to play both QB's. The offense is inconsistent anyway.
