The UMass Minutemen travel to the birthplace of college football.
This isn’t likely to attract audiences or the largest audience, but there is apparently a moneymaking opportunity in New Jersey. Rutgers’ head coach is on the hot seat in 2019. If there is anything that can save him besides a significant step in the direction that is right, I don’t know.
Sales have shrunk and it’s an immediate outcome of how Rutgers the last couple of years putting out a product that was terrible. Rutgers hasn’t been to a bowl game because the Quick Lane Bowl at 2014. Kyle Flood was canned for misconduct, and the product on the field is sinking as the application has cleaned up its act. Texas Tech transport McLane Carter expects to offer a sparkplug for Rutgers. It can’t get any worse than that which Artur Sitkowski did last year.
Sitkowski was the worst quarterback in the country. He ended with 4 touchdowns and 18 interceptions. Some of his interceptions were thoughts bogglingly decisions that are terrible. The Knights may have finished with a record of 1-11 final season, but place an adequate quarterback and they beat Indiana, Michigan State, and Northwestern. A fantastic quarterback and it might have been shut against Penn State, too. Penn State won 20-7, however not before Sitkowski awarded them free points.
Rutgers win has been a win against Texas State in the season opener. They get a UMass team that is much worse to start the entire year in 2019. UMass went 4-8 final season, which wasn’t a season that was dreadful. Now, the Minutemen go having lost a great deal of talent. The single playmaker they had, Andy Isabella, got drafted from the second-round by the Cardinals. He has gone along with a Great Deal of others on UMass.
The faculty will need to be patient using head coach. It is still a Big Ten faculty who have the ability, although they don’t get the competition in Week 1. To UMass they perform, however although it isn’t saying much. Head below for our complimentary UMass vs. Rutgers select.

2019 is currently going to be an whole year of tryouts for the UMass soccer program. Together with a brand new head coach, lots of positions on the area will be full of fresh faces. We are going to find quarterbacks have an opportunity in the offense this year.
Expect the backup to find an opportunity, if things are moving south to get their newcomer with. As of the moment, Bell has not announced the starting QB is going to be for Friday night. That decision isn’t expected Tuesday, but it doesn’t mean much, there is not a lot of talent to use here.
The quarterback battle has been between Andrew Brito and Randall West. Brito is a JUCO transfer from California, who didn’t get looks from different programs. Not even a school including Fresno State or even San Jose State considered Brito. He is very small and has lost behind linemen.
Brito is 5’10” and is a pro-style quarterback. You have some capability as well, if you’re that little. Brito prefers to sit in the pocket. West dedicated to UMass and has seen limited action. He’s passed for 45 metres on 3-of-7 passing in his whole college career.
When there was anything Rutgers did last year it was on protection. They could not have a powerhouse like Ohio State, but Penn State, Michigan State, Northwestern, and Indiana were held below 25 points. The talent level between UMass and those programs is not even near. They have superior offenses in comparison with the 2019 Minutemen.
The defense will be led in the secondary by mature Damon Hayes along with sophomore Avery Young. Whoever receives the telephone they’re likely to have a lot of problems moving the ball around the Scarlet Knights. Nobody has starting experience, let alone experience against a Big Ten defensive unit.
The way I view this game, Rutgers are most likely going to be a much better team than last season. That team in 2018 still blew Texas State, who are much better compared to the UMass squad out. It’s likely to become an embarrassing look for the Scarlet Knights if Rutgers does not triumph by a minimum of 20 points over UMass. UMass are going to become a bottom 5 team in 2019. The spread may be 15.5, but it should be closer to 20. Rutgers gets started in 2019 using a blowout of UMass at home Friday night under the lights.
