1. Umass had a great game plan on quick throws and play action to pick on a young secondary. The cushion that GERG gives the opponent is a great illustration of bend but don't break. Wish there was some jamming to throw off the timing on the quick slants and PA. 2. Kovacs had an up and down game. When he was on the line got rolled up and lost in the wash. No contain on a lot of his plays when he was on the LOS. Couple of great forced turnovers but he needs to chip the tight end on that 4 and 3. Free release on the same play that they got the previous 4th down conversion. 3. Hate to complain about officiating but damn it was blatant holding all game long. Martin and Roh were mauled for the second straight week. Rodriguez should have said something and sent a message to the Big Ten. I think the officals were asleep for most of the game. From beginning to end Umass was grabby, part of why Kovacs was always lost in the wash.
