GAME THREAD: UMass @ FAU - November 20, 2020

Post

Completely unrelated, but I loved the fact that we got a Jeep to lead the team out on the field. I've said we've should off done that years ago.†

I thought it was cool too. Reminded me of ga tech but a modern version.

I think I figured it out. If itís 4th and goal and a player fumbles and his teammate recovers in the end zone, the td does not count. The other team gets the ball at the spot of the fumble. It might be a touchback but I donít think so. On 4th and goal the player who fumbles needs to be the one to recover it.

Since Posey got the first down the ball was placed at the 1 yard line. If it was 4th and goal the other team wouldíve gotten the ball.†

This happened in 1990 In a Bills game and the running back on 4th and goal recovered his own fumble so the touchdown counted. I was really mad because I wanted the Bills to lose. Iím surprised at how many people didnít even know that rule. The radio broadcast team had no clue what was going on.

Has some good Paradise vibes. Like you're driving to the beach. I'm imagining that post-COVID with some added FX. Would look sick. I'll definitely miss the Red Monster, though.

Ok….did not like this game. We played bad and was nationally televised. Posey is am amazing athlete. Very very raw.  So much to work on IF Willie has plans for him at qb. A college  qb doesn't need to make all the throws. But he needs to be able to make the easy throws. I'm kind of disappointed in his inability to throw. He had so many skills  that an arm would make him unstoppable. Now …wjat the heck happened to the o line. Yes, they filled the box. But bet the guy you are assigned to. We won. But umass  is a work in progress that are no where as good as us and we did not perform. I do not think we should stop looking for a big time qb.

I think I can sense a little concern from the owls nest personal. Nice to have reporters that can be totally honest and not homers.

I will have my five takeaway's but the QB room showed some things that is more than "he will get better.''

I've had concerns about the offense with Tronti, I still have concerns with Posey.
Posey was sacked SIX TIMES… UMass had 6 sacks and 14 TFL. OL lost a step last night.

We got a W, which is great. but I still have my doubts for the rest of the season.

GO OWLS!!!

Agreed – but 5 - 1 with our QB situation in a sort of throw away year – will take it!

This game raised more questions than answers, Posey and Oline looked horrible, UMASS HAD 5 SACKS???

Very concerning but we still won.
