Dan Malone of the Springfield Republican has a story on a quick transition back to quarterback for Todd Stafford for the Minutemen's final game of the season. UMass head coach Mark Whipple converted the former QB to a tight end during summer camp, but says the move back is being made to help preserve the redshirt status of AJ Doyle and Ross Comis if an emergency quarterback is needed in the Buffalo game.


Matt Vautour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette has a follow-up story on the Akron game with Austin Whipple as the focus. Whipple says he is grateful his first start was not the last game of the season and that he feels he has the chance to show improvement in the Buffalo game.


Dan Malone of the Springfield Republican has a story featuring redshirt freshman Austin Whipple as he talks about his first career start at Akron. Whipple says he took several lessons from the performance and that he felt more comfortable in the second half of the game last Tuesday night.
