QB: I thought Gardner played better as the game went along. My thing with Devin is that we need to use the talent around him more. We call too many plays that feature him and not enough stuf that gets him safe plays or in a rythym. We need more screens, more quick passes, more safe stuff. Treat him like a freshman QB early in the game and let him get into the flow, then open things up a little. Let him see what the defense is doing before we put the entire offense on him.
RB: I think we're fine...I have no idea why people "shit on" Fitz so much, he played well. The other guys are all improved or improving as true freshman.
WR: It'll take 3-4 games to get an opinion on these guys, but Gallon, Dileo and Reynolds made some very good plays.
TE: The potential here is limitless, all 3 guys can play B1G football. Praying that Funchess is okay.
OL: Better than most predicted. I think they're better going straight forward than with the misdirection stuff. Lewan is like having 5.5 linemen on the field.
DL: I'm not ready to say "they've earned the right to rush 4"...it's just CMU. But if they can do what they did today, every Saturday. I'll scream it from the mountain tops.
LB: Solid, need better tackling.
CB: Solid, need to play a touch tighter. Stribling is the real deal.
S: n/a with the starters out. Furman is not the answer.
K/P: We've got 2 (maybe 3) of the best.
