Whip continues to put this team in tough positions, not what is needed from a HC. These kids are playing their hearts out week after week, he needs to have faith in his players that he doesn't need to take risks.

Radio just said it all offset because it was related to the late hit... shouldn't that mean the late hit counts and everything after that is offset??

The way they announced it on TV there was a late hit, 1 unsportsmanlike on UMass and 3 on App State. Even if that was wrong, and each side got 2 unsportsmanlike penalties, we should have gotten 15 yards on late hit.

At a minimum, Downey will be on an NFL practice squad next year.

I don't think this is the right offense for Comis, I think he needs to be moving around in the pocket. Not what UMass is built for.

Great 4th down stop by the D! Come on offense, do something!

Another winnable game. We're missing our chance. Trick play after the late hit killed us. So frustrated.

Why can't we call a play on 3rd and 1 that's easy to execute, Whip? How about a handoff to a RB? App isn't that good, just play normal football ffs.

Defense is playing their hearts out. I also wonder if Whip wants to get fired. Playing calling is bizarre!

I don't think he wants to get fired, I think his huge ego thinks this team can only win if he calls some brilliant play.

If they lose it's on the HC.
