From CBSBostonSports.com – The UMass Minutemen fell to 0-4 last weekend but made positive strides in a 27-16 loss to Miami (Ohio). Head coach Charley Molnar told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Marc Bertrand the fact that it was the closest loss of the year for UMass only makes it more frustrating, but he said there were some positives to take from the game. One was running back Michael Cox, who rushed for 188 yards and two touchdowns, and another was Kassan Mesiah, who had a sack in the opening series and finished the game with 10 tackles.
“I really believed he was going to be a really good football player down the road,” Molnar said of Messiah. “I just didn’t expect him to come out and get a sack on the second play of the game. He played beyond my expctations, to be frank.”
