Game Day Boston College--September 10th, 2016

2016 is my 40th year with UMass season tickets. There's been a lot of water over the dam in that time. There's has been high points and low. With three years of .500 ball at the end of FCS and losing since the begin of FBS, there's has not been much to encourage UMass fans. We came close last year to beating Temple, which was a Top-25 team at the time. That would have been huge for the program.

Today we face another Power Five team. Realistically, BC should have an edge. It would be great for morale if we could win. The Minutemen played mistake-free ball at Florida. Let's play with energy and see what happens.

Go UMass!!!

Matty Vautour says BC will be a challenge.

Amherst native Taj-Amir Torres is looking forward to playing UMass.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BC Interruption has some final thoughts.

One BC Interruption writer thinks UMass will cover the points.

The Patriot Ledger reports BC and UMass are set to lock horns.

The Quad City Times says Boston College hopes to turn it around against UMass.

The Boston Herald reports the Eagles won't be caught napping against the Minutemen.

The Herald also relates UMass and BC are battling on the recruiting trail.

News OK says Boston College Steve Addazio could be on the hot seat.

Maryland rolled over next week's foe FIU 41-14. The Terps knocked FIU starting QB Alex McGough out of the game early. His replacement RS Freshman Maurice Alexander went 9-18 131 yards 1 TD LONG 32. Alexander showed some flashes as a dual-threat QB. He ran 9 times for 41 yards.

The Panthers can make some big plays. The UMass defense will need to play well in order to beat them.

Oh well, maybe another 3 win season, Comis and the O-line are not up to big 5 defenses.

Sadly, -23 yards on the ground is not the way to win friends and influence people. Back to no students showing up for the rest of the season.

I sometimes think our "fans" want us to lose. What would people do after games if we win? Pathetic comments on some of these forums.

No 2nd half adjustments by OC. If anyone works at Deloitte, please let them know they have an employee representing them on Twitter who is a total nut job.see @brodskyme
Not someone who should be representing a Fortune 500 company,please let his company know about his drunken Twitter garbage.
