I was thinking to myself "maybe I should stop watching after the first quarter...it's been good and I don't want to see when that ends"

Turns out it was 1 play into the second quarter.

The red zone has been shitty...but the team is actually moving the ball so far today. Only down 7-6 and all of that came on the blocked kick for Northwestern.

At least this game has been watchable, that's all I hope for each week.

Just maybe if West had been playing these past few games that Brito started, he would be making those throws...

The spread was 40 against a 1 win team and they almost covered. Just an abysmal failure this year. Walt does not know how to coach.

Why didn't Bell try to score with three time outs left! BELL IS A TOTAL LOSER! I have never seen a UMass coach quit like that!

Why did you think Army played to final whistle last week Bell! All my years in the Army and we always believed in fighting to the end--never quit!

On the bright side I heard we almost scored a touchdown.

I was at the game today. Saw a few UMass parents but no other UMass sightings. Overall give the players all the credit in the world. They played hard and had a great sideline all day. Red zone killed them. Play calling was not quite as strange as normal but still head scratching times. For example, 4th and 4 from 50 in fourth quarter and the don’t go for it down by 16?? Then they try on 4th and 15 on next series. What do they have to lose?? Come on Walt!! We really need a quarterback. West did ok but missed so many easy throws. Man we need a QB and someone who is dual threat if we are going to run this offense. D was much better today until game was out of reach. Maturity and more quality players won’t hurt. A for player effort today.

Crazy stat from the game: NU only had one player catch a pass (7) in the game while UMass had nine players.

To add on to that, more UMass DBs caught passes than NU players.

Remember when we went to Michigan as an FCS team and almost pulled off the upset? Man, those were the days.

Thank you to the Chicago alum for hosting a fun tailgate! Had a blast meeting you all, especially umass2msu.

Northwestern fans were also very nice and welcoming.
