Huge win today. IF we are not contending for the conference championship, we must be next year. I have no doubt. About a month ago, I told my friends that we would start 3-0 and beat SC* this year. So far, I am half right. A sign things improving and good coaching is when you win the games that you are supposed to win. Since CRN's arrival, we have not lost any games that any reasonable expectations would deem that we should not win. AND, on top of that we have hung in and even won some that we should not have one (i.e. Tennessee twice, Stanford).
I was very impressed with our goal line D today. Another big day for Jerzy, BP, Reggie, and the Bozworth boys. I very much under-guessed the amount of TO's we would have today. Huge props to our boys on D coming out strong to start the game and keep at it to force four turnovers. I love it. This has been a fun team to watch.
Our offense wasn't always on the same page today (i.e. dropped snaps, an early snap?, penalties). Actually, penalties were a problem on both sides. Nine penalties for 70 yards, including at least two in potential game changing moments. That was against two Tennessee penalties for 10 yards. That disparity might also be a result of the home field, but it is still something that I am sure will be addressed in the weeks to come at Spaulding.
I love that KP hit ten different receivers today. We only had eight different receivers hit last week, and that was a game with some garbage time. This is a sign of the offense coming together. We are moving the ball around the field. I loved the Chane Moline TD today. It is interesting to note that three of of the ten receivers today had two receptions while the other seven each had one. The three were two tight ends and a full back. The other seven are all wide outs. Classic Norm Chow play calling. Let's keep this guy around for as long as we can.
Again, great win today on a day when all the pressure was on Lanie to win the revenge game.
