CBS Boston: UMass Head Coach Charley Molnar Looks Ahead To Home-Opener vs. Maine

Marc Bertrand of CBS Boston interviews UMass football head coach as part of their weekly chat. 

UMass fell to the Wisconsin Badgers 45-0 in their season opener last weekend, but head coach Charley Molnar was pleased with strides his team has made following their first season in FBS play last year.

"The biggest thing was our guys have improved quite a bit form last season. The score didn't indicate it, but we played fairly clean," Molnar told 98.5 The Sports Hub's Marc Bertrand for their weekly chat. "We had some errors and some penalties I wish we could have had back, but our offensive line has improved tremendously from a year ago. We were able to manage a run game and protect the quarterback. We had no sacks of TFL, just a couple pressures and really that was due to the coverage than anything else."

"On defense we had 54 plays where we held Wisconsin to under 150 yards on offense, and then we had a dozen plays where the roof caved in. If we can eliminate half those plays against an opponent like Wisconsin, who knows how the game can end up," he said. "We've made great strides and really have improved in all areas."
