Wednesday--September 17th, 2014

Ted Daisher is out as UMass' special teams coach.

Lorenzo Woodley is out of Whipple's doghouse and ready to run against the Nittany Lions.

Dan Malone reports Whipple said Daisher's dismissal had nothing to do with the Vanderbilt game.

UMass fans who were not around during Whipple's previous stint with the Minutemen may not be aware that although Whipple has a kind of avuncular public persona, he does not put up with poor performance, either by players or coaches. Previously he has dismissed players and fired assistant coaches if the circumstances demanded.

This is Woodley's big chance for a break-out performance. When he is healthy and motivated, he can be (will be?) great. That and successful pressuring of their QB could make for an interesting game. I don't accept the current point spread.
