- Mattison's defensive schemes looked better than GERGs
- Good blitzing and opportunistic defensive play
- Kovacs, Herron and Demens
- Team looked more disciplined on both sides of the ball than last year...no turnovers and only 1 penalty
- Both Spread-Option and West Coast stuff worked...having more variety in our arsenal may bail us out at some point down the road
- Denard is still Denard
- Shaw and Fitz, Koger and Roy
- Special teams remain too "special"
- Not enough pressure from our front 4 on defense
- Cornerbacks still very bad
- Wow we really couldn't cover that one guy they kept throwing to over and over again, could we?
- I know it's dangerous and all, but seeing a football game called in the 3rd quarter was disappointing
- Craig James, on several occassions, calling spread-option formations "pro style"
