Phew... I'm still trying to calm down after the close call today against UMass. Obviously no one can be pleased with the way we played them so close. That said, I think it would be a huge overreaction to start panicking. We got a win today. Denard continued to get snaps and become more comfortable running the offense. Our running backs got involved in a real way for the first time.
We are still a young team coming off a very emotional win. The national press wrote flattering articles about Denard et al for the past week straight. I'm not surprised at all that we came out flat. Let's all take a deep breath, have a few beers and enjoy a "W," regardless of how we got it. We are 3-0. I can assure you that we will come out much sharper next week. Go Blue!
