Any updates on the health of Rogers?

I'm more amazed that the records were broken in back to back years.
That is pretty amazing when you think about it.

We added to theirs and they added to ours. :?

Can't help but wonder how many points UMass could have scored at UConn last year if that game wasn't played in a monsoon. That could have made up the difference.

I can't help but wonder how much worse the numbers could have been if our offense was even close to respectable. How many teams pulled their starters in the 4th quarter against us? Half?

But if our offense had been better, we would have had less 3 and outs and held the ball for longer. There were dreadful stretches where we gave the ball back so quickly that I really believe helped aid the high points allowed marks.

The offense was a direct contributor to the defense getting gashed all year. They would be gassed after multiple 3 and outs in a row from the offense. The floodgates would then be open.

^^^^^^^
You're also right that opposing teams left a lot of points on the table being up so big going into the 4th quarter of each game that they definitely coasted late.
