Re: QB Platooning

This probably the best submission in this thread. It pretty much demonstrates that platooning QBs can be done successfully. Unfortunately, Whipple is not doing it successfully. Sure, when you have two guys who could and would start at 99% of the schools out there, you can likely pull off platooning...

Re: Head coaching options

Detroit Lions TE Coach Al Golden, former Temple, Miami Fla HC. Golden would be a good option too. Might have been in over his head at Miami but he is a proven program builder and that's what we need. The situation he inherited at Temple is not unlike ours. I'm squeamish about giving the reins to so...

tdmass + Dennis: Thanks. I have signed up for fubo. The quality is good. At $45 a month after the free week, I doubt that I will be staying.
It is on charter spectrum channel 864. I don’t have a special package either.

Any idea when the team is traveling down there? I'm sure the hurricane is throwing a monkey wrench into things.
They will fly through Iowa to get down there. It will be alright. It is in south Florida.

Re: 2018 - Game 3: @ Georgia Southern 9/8

The reality is that taking a knee on your own 25 w/35 seconds in the half in a 1 score game on the road is a perfectly reasonable decision. If we had called a long pass play there and the ball had been turned over for more GSU points you would have been killing that decision today. I am in total ag...

More than a few people, myself included, commented on that over the course of yesterday. The silence was deafening. He broke the streak today by retweeting the new college ranking news.
Still not commenting on the game however....

Re: 2018 - Game 3: @ Georgia Southern 9/8

In full disclosure I wasn't able to watch the game yesterday, but the recap in the Gazette isn't filling me with confidence going forward, especially these two uninspiring quotes from Whipple: . I know this is standard boiler plate coach speak, but geez, it sounds so weak and defeatist. And then th...

Re: Fire the OC

I hate to say it, but I think we are looking at maybe 3 or 4 wins. Vegas had us at +1.5 and we got blown out AGAIN. Thing is, if we get blown out at FIU, then we maybe be looking at 2 or 3 wins. This is a senior laden roster so the immediate future does not look bright. Last year, we didn't gel unt...

Re: 2018 - Game 4: @ FIU 9/15

This has turned into a must win.. lose this and Bamford is going to have to start finding some $$ Did you see anything vs GSU that makes you think we'd be ABLE to win, nevermind it being a "must win"? Despite the stupid play calling and whacko substitution patterns, yes. Marquis Young ran harder th...

Re: Fire the OC

At the G5 level you need to score 5 tds. The defense performed near expectations yesterday. The spread was slim and the o/u was low 60s. That means each team was expected to score in the low 30s with the team that got to the mid 30s pulling out the win. Look at other scores from around the college ...

Re: QB Platooning

I don’t like the platooning either, and was hopeful it was only done as a one off in the first game. If Whip thinks these two guys are equal, he really needs to say so. Which also begs the question that has been put forth many times as to why the hell put FORD back out there vs. BC after Comis playe...

We'll know what kind of team we have in the next 2 weeks. If we go 0-2 it's going to be a long, painful season. My feeling is that if we get the first one we'll also get the second one.
If we come home 3-1 to play Charlotte I sure hope the stands are full.

Re: 2018 Recruiting

^ Kahuna, I'm guessing you're being at least a little sarcastic. The simple answer is - until we are relevant we will not get the top players in Mass. unless they have a connection to the school or we just plain get lucky. Not sarcastic, just lamenting. Of course you are right, I just wish you were...

Re: 2018 - Game 3: @ Georgia Southern 9/8

This is a tad depressing:‏ @GSSportsNetwork 37 minutes ago Eagles have won 21 straight non-con home games since 2006, while UMass is 1-21 in non-con road games since moving to FBS in 2012. :) 11 of these are vs Savannah State. They also played teams like Howard a few times. They lost to UNH last ye...
