There are only three QBs on the roster. With the poor performance of the line, the thin ranks at QB is a concern. Comis, who is especially mobile, is only play away from being sidelined. Hopefully he stays healthy, but still, I'm wondering why there wasn't more effort at trying to retain Sosinski. I guess Stafford would serve in a pinch if needed, but that is no way to build the program in the event of recurrent injury at the position.

Strong performance needed this week. Conference USA might be a good home for the Minutemen, as much as the AAC is the ideal.

Hi Frank,

I read the UFB everyday and commend you on your great effort...I am so thankful that you do this "labor of love" every year with tremendous enthusiasm. I'll open it any way I can to read the articles you gather together for us.

I realize it's a tough time to be a UMass football fan and it's easy to get down on the team, coaches and athletic department but these are the times they all need our support and positive suggestions more than ever.

I think UMass football fans are better than a bunch of negative nay-sayers. Let's get behind this team!
