Hope we get some good news on Ford but great response by the team after all that.

How did UMass not gain any penalty yards on that late hit? How did Whipple call that horrendous play? How can officials have their heads so far up their collective ass? The high school game I saw last night was better than the quality of this game. What’s the record for penalties in a game?

Whipple just gave away all of the momentum.

Somehow we lost yards when they had 4 penalties and we had 1.. then a terrible call by whip

That was the most confounding thing I have seen in a football game. We should have had the ball at the 20.

Weirdest game I've ever watched. Hope they settle down and avoid turnovers.

Phew...Bamford’s saying Ford’s alert and responsive.

That said it seems like UMass is responsible for all 31 points.

They’re beating App State...just hope they don’t beat themselves.

Should be a wild second half.

Go UMass!

I don't know, but the bottom line is that we had no reason to take any penalty there. This team lacks discipline, it's hurt them in this game and all year, and prior years. What's the solution? I don't know, but it is mind boggling and is one of the things in our ability to control that we don't.

And yet again Whipple finds a way to call just the wrong thing. Could have gone out up 10. Defense has played ok but way too many costly mistakes that I predict will cost us. Officiating sucks, but what's new?

That was the dumbest play I’ve ever seen. Just run the ball and run out the first half. Reminds me of Seattle in the super bowl vs the pats or Atlanta last year. WHY do you throw the ball with that stupid flea flicker? PLAY TO WIN
