UMass: Who ever though a win over Akron would be so important to a program

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…


Boston College: Steve Addazio is squarely on the hot seat once again

Steve Addazio is once again on the hot seat. If he wasn’t after the Kansas loss two weeks ago, he is now. Thanks to some game mismanagement in Saturday’s 27-24 loss to Wake Forest, the B.C faithful are starting to get restless and the pressure is once again on Addazio to get this program back on track after a big game loss. The Eagles were in good position to win…


Patriots Rewind: Patriots 16 Bills 10

Game Rewind: The Patriots earned a sloppy 16-10 win over the Bills. It was the Patriots eighth straight win in Buffalo. Tom Brady and the offense struggled to get into a rhythm and the Patriots committed eight penalties for 58 yards. It was a forgettable performance for the offense. Luckily, the defense turned in another dominate performance. Here are five thoughts on the game. 1. Defense dominates again: The Patriots…


Patriots Preview: New England Patriots (3-0) at Buffalo Bills (3-0)

It is a battle of the undefeateds if you will when the Patriots travel to Orchard Park, New York to take on the Buffalo Bills. The Patriots have absolutely owned the Bills during the Belichick, Brady era, especially in Buffalo. Tom Brady is 30-3 in his career against the Bills. Bills fans are hoping that this is the year their team breaks the Patriots curse at home and actually wins…


Boston College Rewind: Wake Forest 27 Eagles 24

Game Rewind: The Eagles had a Golden opportunity to win this game but thanks to some untimely mistakes and some questionable coaching decisions, Boston College lost a heartbreaker to Wake Forest 27-24. Here are five thoughts on the game. 1. Defense struggled on third down: I thought Boston College played well at times on defense but their inability to get off the field on third down killed them and in many ways,…


Boston College Preview: #24 Wake Forest Demon Deacons (4-0) at Boston College Eagles (3-1)

The Eagles return home after a 30-16 win over Rutgers to host the 24th ranked Demon Deacons of Wake Forest. The Eagles had a forgettable performance the last time they played at home, losing to Kansas 48-24. The Eagles will have their hands full today, especially their defense. Wake Forest is explosive offensively, averaging 38 points per game. Controlling the ball and a slower pace offensively could benefit the Eagles…


UMass Preview: Akron Zips (0-4) at UMass Minutemen (0-4)

The Minutemen will once again look to get in the win column for the first time this season when they host the Akron Zips of the Mid-American Conference at McGuirk Stadium. UMass played tough in the first half last week at home against Coastal Carolina but the defense fell apart in the second half as the Chanticleers rolled 62-28. The Minutemen will hope for a better performance today from their…


High School: Week 4 games to watch

Cole Finney and the Hingham Harborman have a chance to earn a program defining win tonight. Week 4 doesn’t feature the sheer number of heavyweight match ups like last week did but there are still some quality match ups. Here are our top match ups for the weekend. Brockton Boxers (1-2) at #3 Everett Crimson Tide (2-1): Since losing to Springfield Central in their opener, Everett has got their groove…


Harvard Preview: Brown Bears (1-0) at Harvard Crimson (0-1)

The Crimson will host the Brown Bears in their home opener tonight at Harvard Stadium. The Crimson lost a tough 31-23 game last week to a talented University of San Diego program. Quarterback Jake Smith and the offense struggled to find a consistent rhythm and the defense had a difficult time getting off the field in key situations. The Harvard defense will once again have it’s hands full tonight with…
