Postgame Quotes: UMass 23, UNH 17
Oct. 17, 2009
Head Coach Kevin Morris' Opening Statement:
We focused all week on getting our overall level of play back where it should be. We had a good week of practice and just wanted to come out with a lot of intensity and play physical football. I think the guys did a great job of that tonight.
I thought there were opportunities we could have capitalized on, but when push came to shove, we did more pushing and won the game.

Head Coach Sean McDonnell Opening statement:
"Just what you expect out of a UMass - UNH football game. Hard part physical football game. They did a great job of sticking to what they do we got ahead there in the second half, had a couple of chances to move the ball made some plays and their offense stayed to it...I'm really impressed with Hernandez, I saw him running in an earlier game against Stony Brook he's a good football player, great runner, and in the end the defense got at us a little bit we didn't run the ball really well, I was disappointed in that...we competed very, very hard out there. UMass is a good football team, they bounced back from a tough loss at Delaware and played very, very well. Heck of a game."
McDonnell on previous games played at McGuirk Stadium:
"Bygones be bygones; every time we come down to this place it's tough, you don't have a whole lot of wins here when we come down here I think we got 6 or 7 wins like that...last time we won here was in 2005 but I wasn't thinking about that, I was thinking about how we can get better and win more football games."
