Day after Wagner--October 30th, 2016


UMass rang up 507 total yards of offense against the Seahawks yesterday. Be sure to watch Adam Breneman's highlight one handed catch. He went 8-138 and 2 TD's. A good day for the offense. Could have been better as Isabella dropped a sure TD catch and Sekai Lindsay had two drops.

Wonder of wonders, we went 2-for-2 on field goal attempts. Logan Laurant had a 49 yard punting average to go with the two field goals. We're up to a stratospheric 33% in field goal percentage.!

The defense controlled a pretty good Wagner passing game. UMass had an unsportsmanlike penalty that kept the only Seahawk scoring drive alive.

We'll take the win and hope we get some of the walking wounded back for the last three games of the season.

I can't get excited about a win over a middling FCS team, even if we were in the FCS ourselves.

Still looking for the Win that establishes our presence in FBS. At this point, and as well as we have played in some losses, I don't know if any upset is coming this season. Any team we play is a potential upset now that we are independent, so a return to the MAC may not be such a bad idea--at least for a five-year plan to establish the program. Going independent has attracted some good recruits, but has done nothing for the consistency of play.
