UMass Football News--July 25th, 2017


Colbert Calhoun, 5-11 219 UMass LB shows off the results of his summer workouts. Calhoun started eight games for the Minutemen last year. He played well and was fourth on the team in tackles (28 UT 30 AT 58 TT). I think the UMass defense will shine this year. For the first four years of FBS the defense was on the short side of recruiting numbers by a factor of about 2 to 3 vs the offense.

This year the defense has enough bodies so the Minutemen can rotate players. It should make a difference during the non-Power Five section of the schedule.

The Maine Black Bears were picked 9th in the CAA preseason poll.

Micah Wright is Maine's top offensive weapon. He was named FCS Freshman-of-the-year by one football service and an honorable mention FCS All-American by another.

BYU hopes its 2017 defense will be among its best.

The Cougars also have experience in crucial positions.

Georgia Southern starts Fall practice early to polish their triple-option offense. Back in their glory years in FCS, the Eagles once ran the triple option for 400 yards against Florida in the Swamp.
