Matty Vautour has a post on the return of Rodney Mills. He also mentions James Oliphant and Dan Jonah scored their first TD of the season. Mrs Blog and I talked with Jonah's parents at rest stop out in Ohio on the way back from Notre Dame. His folks noticed my "UMass Football' sticker on my truck and came over to say "Hi". Nice people.

Jonah also played baseball for UMass.

Khary Bailey-Smith was the last UMass player to return a kickoff for a TD. He ran it back 93 yards against Miami (Ohio) on 10/4/14. Oliphant's return was the 7th longest in Minutemen history.
