The Akron Zips Are Trending Up, But Can They Win?

The Akron Zips have high expectations this year after jumping out to five wins last year. Unfortunately, the stats don't paint such a pretty picture.

And The UMass News Keeps Coming

2

Quick Analysis: Frohnapfel needed to be the starter. A.J. Doyle was not going to be effective as a starter unless he took huge leaps forward from last year. It's best to see what Frohnapfel can do. Losing Drew Harris (for reasons unknown) is a blow to the Minutemen, as word from camp is he was a special talent, but the Minutemen are deep at running back, and should be able to get production from Lorenzo Woodley, Jamal Wilson, and others.

UMass Names Its Starting Quarterback

"After a two-week training camp battle, Blake Frohnapfel has officially been named the University of Massachusetts football team's starting quarterback." - Dan Malone

D'Metrius Williams Kicked Off UMass

+

Per Bob McGovern Jr. of the Maroon Musket, starting safety D'Metrius Williams was kicked off the Minutemen today. Reasons were not disclosed, but it was referenced that it wasn't just one thing, but a multitude of issues. Quick Analysis: This is a huge blow to the Minutemen, who lose a starting safety in D'Metrius Williams. Williams was one of the most experienced Minutemen, playing since his freshman year two years ago, and was a possible breakout candidate this year. Early reports from Bob McGovern suggest that Trey Dudley-Giles will be moving to safety.

Minutemen Down To Six Quarterbacks

+

And then there were 6. As Dan Malone pointed out in a later tweet, he is a big target (6'7", 250). Quick analysis: Blake Frohnapfel has the job for 2 years, followed by Comis/West taking over; Stafford was never going to be under center. Of course, if Frohnapfel gets injured we're back to A.J. Doyle, which no one wants.
