I must admit that I was one of those people who didn’t think UMass would win a game this season. Why would anyone think otherwise? Aside from a fast starting first quarter against Rutgers in the season opener, the Minutemen have been awful. Defensively, they were on pace to shatter school and national records for ineptitude. Then Akron visited McGuirk Stadium on Saturday and we were reminded that the Minutemen…

The Eagles have an opportunity to redeem themselves this week against a Rutgers program that is improved but is still rebuilding. Here are three keys to this game. 1. Move on from last week: Last week’s loss was inexcusable. Plain and simple. All…
