From CBSBostonSports.com – The UMass Minutemen fell to 0-2 last weekend with a 45-6 loss to Indiana in their Gillette Stadium opener, but head coach Charley Molnar saw some good signs from his young team.
The Minutemen found the end zone for the first time since joining the FBC, marching their way down the field thanks to a flee flicker in the first quarter. After running back Jordan Broadnax took the handoff, he sent it back to quarterback Mike Wegzyn who hit Marken Michel for 56-yards completion down to the Indiana 19-yard line. A few plays later, Wegzyn took it in for UMass’ only score on the afternoon.
Molnar was impressed with the execution of the trick play.
“We knew we wanted to use it early. We had planned to use it the week before (against UConn) and the opportunity never presented itself,” Molnar told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Marc Bertrand during their weekly chat. “It was a matter of getting the right defense in, and Broadnax made a nice throw back to Mike, which was really our biggest concern. Once I saw the ball leave Jordan’s hand I knew it was going to be a good strike.”……
