Collegian: UMass offensive line improved over offseason

Cameron McDonough of the Daily Collegian has a story focusing on the offensive line and its improvement, despite several new starters in the group, from a year ago. This was evident against Wisconsin as stated by coach Charley Molnar.

"It was a cleaner game by our offensive line. The penalties were very, very disappointing because we felt like we had more poise and that we had demonstrated that during camp," he said. "But the upside of it is though the quarterback was pressured at times, there weren't any sacks and we didn't have any TFLs, we had no TFLs in that game. So every play was zero or better, which is an improvement from where we were a year ago."

Maroon Musket: Offensive Line Deeper, But Still Young

Massachusetts Minutemen

Bob McGovern of the Maroon Musket has a look at the offensive line which he says is deeper than last year, but still youthful in certain areas. Outland Trophy candidate Anthony Dima along with Matt Sparks are the two returning starters, while Rutgers transfer David Osei and fifth-year senior Vincent Westcarr should provide veteran leadership as well.
