CBS UMass Is Like A Cat

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports has his latest 'Observations' piece and UMass and Cady Lalanne are mentioned. Rothstein speaks highly of Cady and writes:

UMass is like a cat -- it always seems to land on its feet. The Minutemen have trailed at halftime in each of their first three games but are undefeated. The biggest reason why?
