UMass Minutemen Season Prediction, What Will Happen

UMass has fallen so painfully far since Don Brown was last coaching the team back in the mid-2000s. It’s not going to be any sort of worst-to-first sort of thing with the Minutemen all of a sudden turning into a powerhouse, but it should be more competitive.

For just about anyone else, this is a walk-in-the-park schedule built to have a winning campaign with a bowl game at the end. For UMass, just being more competitive and coming up with a few wins would be a great step forward under the new coaching staff.

The problem with the schedule, though, is that too many winnable games are on the road. UMass has to go on a run of three straight games away from Amherst against New Mexico State, UConn, and Arkansas State. Any one of those would be in the lean-win column if they were at home.

With all of the experience, and the new coaching staff, figure a win over Stony Brook and one win somewhere else – maybe Buffalo, maybe one of those mentioned road games, like at UConn.

Anything more than that will be gravy.
