Sunday before Louisiana Tech--October 9th, 2016

I feel a little better about the Old Dominion loss after learning at least five UMass starters missed the game. It was hard to see UMass player numbers in the blurry video feed on my laptop. Hopefully, the extra day this week will allow some of most of them to return.

I've been meaning to mention Tedrick Lowery. He led the Minutemen in tackles against Florida and was 2nd in TT for FIU and Mississippi State. Over the first four games, I felt he was having a First Team All-Conference year (if we were in a conference). He was an impact player for the Minutemen. Hope he returns soon.

Another player we've already talked about is Joe Previte. He had another good game against Old Dominion. Previte had 3.0 TFL and 1.5 sacks and 6 TT. That's a lot of production for a defensive lineman.  The Minutemen had 7 TFL in that game.

BC defense is showing the difference between Don Brown and Jim Reid. Reid is a well traveled coach for a reason, his d plays with heart occasionally, but rarely with brains. He will be gone in 8 weeks.
