The kid has a bright future. He really had 2 touchdown passes (both back to back) and 1 running touchdown. I was especially pleased with his deep throws and with how he brought back memories of Vince Young with his scoring run.
It was good to finally see Tate get some action and he obviously delivered. And Denard did his usual thing. All of our QB's looked good but I thought Devin was particularly impressive considering he is just a true freshman.
After watching both Tate and Devin, I think Tate looks like the more solid choice for #2 (although Devin does throw a nice deep ball). What do you guys think? I think Tate should be #2 as the offense seemed to run faster with him in it. Moreover, considering the game experience Tate has, I feel more confident with him in there if Drob goes down.
So today after we got the safety today to make it 30-14, bowling green proceeded to kickoff from their own 20 I think. however, I thought (or should I say ncaa football 05 taught me) that after a safety the kicking team had to punt it away. i looked on wikipedia and got this
Resuming play after a safety The various rules books prescribe different methods for resuming play after a safety. In the NFL, the team that gave up the points kicks to the other team from its own 20-yard line. This is termed a free kick: the kicking team has the option of employing a punt or a drop kick. Unlike the kickoff, a kicking tee may not be used (NFL only, college kickers have the option of using a tee on the safety kick). A punt is the most commonly chosen option, whereas a drop kick is virtually unheard-of in modern football.so it looks like it says you can punt or drop kick it. why then did bowling green kickoff normally?

Although Denard was D-awesome & D-unstoppable, I'd have to give the game ball to Tate. The game was still in doubt when he came in and he guided the team to TD after TD. Going 12-12 doesn't hurt either. Great team effort and Tate shows that Those Who Stay Will Be Champions!

Is it just me, or does espn do this a lot? i get that they have to cover a bunch of teams in a bunch of sports, but if you can get it right in your ticker, you can get it right on the front page of your website.
