I commend you on the misleading title to get the thread more hits. The actual article has Plumer saying the opposite. Anonymous Coward indeed.
UMass beat writer: Minutemen will "slaughter" Michigan
MLive: RB Michael Cox, who leads UMass in rushing, is a name people around here know from his time at Michigan. How has he looked so far?
Plumer: Cox has looked OK at best. In his defense, he hasn’t had a ton of running room in either of the two games so far, but he has struggled to get the ball north-south so far at times, and hasn’t done himself any favors in that way.
What? Mike Cox struggling to run North-South? Who could have imagined that happening?
