Have to remember the level of competition, but wow the defense looked great. Aggressive, flying all over the field, just awesome. They shut App State down completely. The second and third unit looked a tad shaky at the end, but that's to be expected. Especially at this point. Props to Mattison. This unit looks good.

Nuss looks like a big upgrade over Borges, but we won't really know until we play solid opponents and see if we can get week to week improvement. Under Borges we seemingly regressed each week. But I've got faith in Nuss until he proves me otherwise.

We have to keep in mind who we played today. The competition was not that good, but it was extremely relieving to see us run the ball effectively. You can tell we've improved from last year. At least as far as us not being able to run the ball against Akron and UConn last year. We'll have a real test next week against what should be a good Irish defense, but I liked what I saw today from the offense. Funchess will be a nightmare for any secondary to match up against.
|2 hours 36 min ago||Don't understand that call,||
Don't understand that call, but our 2nd and 3rd stringers are in. They're getting solid playing time, so if we give a TD in the process, so be it. Our first team defense absolutely dominated App State from start to finish. Gardner looked great. And Funchess was just glorious.

Navy is beating Ohio State. Which means America is beating Ohio State. I like it.

Please Navy. Please ruin Ohio State's season today.

Defense looking unstoppable. I forgot what it looks like to have a running game. Good start. Hope our second and third stringers can get some quality playing time in the second half.

Devin Funchess. We are all witnesses.

Defense looks dominant, but man that run blocking needs some significant work. Still have way too many TFLs.

Never seen that call before. How is that an auto first down? Wasn't it like 3rd and 23?
|5 hours 11 min ago||Defense looking solid. Hope||
Defense looking solid. Hope the O-Line can find its stride soon. If we can't run the ball against App State we're in a lot of trouble this year.

Show mercy today boys. None whatsoever.

Wow, didn't see that one coming. Thought it'd definitely be switching to 21 if anything. Still, that's awesome.
|8 hours 47 min ago||Okay, Hackenberg looks pretty||
Okay, Hackenberg looks pretty good. But the good thing about him is if you can shut him down, you essentially shut their entire team down.
|19 hours 51 min ago||Pull them. Get our second and||
Pull them. Get our second and third stringers some playing time. Maybe leave the O-Line in a bit more, but defense wise, all the first stringers get pulled. Morris and/or Bellomy get the remainder of the snaps at that point.

Ugh here we go. Prepare for the next 24 hours to be nothing but ESPN playing the App State card over, and over, and over.
Not that we don't deserve it.

Watching at home, hoping and praying for an ending where the scoreboard says Michigan has more points. I really don't want to envision my Saturday night involving crying profusely and destroying everything I own.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Good for him. Glad to see||
Good for him. Glad to see he's getting to play. I was really high on him when he showed up on campus. Seemed like the exact bruiser we were looking for. Stinks that he had to get buried on the depth chart, on top of a very subpar O-Line to block for him. But at least he's getting to play elsewhere.
Best of luck, Thomas.

Do you eat a lot of cheese as well?

I'll give Rutgers credit where credit is due should they win this game, especially considering Big Ten teams traditionally suck when they head out West to play the PAC-12. But I don't know if this is so much a product of them improving greatly as it is WSU is just that bad. When was the last time they were any good? When Ryan Leaf was skulking around campus?

Damn. Was really hoping that commercial would end with him destroying Eddie George or Troy Smith.

Maybe I shouldn't be, but I'm really surprised that it seems like the Georgia Dome is half full. I know Boise won't travel very well, especially considering they don't have much momentum now that Petersen is gone, but I thought Ole Miss would pack the place.

Happy for him. Always wish he was able to capitalize more on that awesome second half of the 2011 season that he had. But then again, with our recent O-Line issues, its hard to blame him for his lack of production.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Why do we feel the need to||
Why do we feel the need to hand out all the jerseys every year? If we're going to do these legends jerseys, make the players earn them. If no one on the team has earned a legends jersey, then don't give the number out. And if a player underperforms or has off the field issues, take the jersey away.

This is probably for the best. We've got a really crowded backfield as it is, and there's no shortage of talent there anyway. Besides, we really don't want all those guys walking out the door at the same time.

Seems like Roy really has a good grip on things with the corners. Hopefully it should pay off big time this year.

Sheesh that was all kinds of depressing to read. So much talent and we can't seem to do anything with it. Hopefully Nuss and his up-tempo, simplified blocking scheme will allow these guys to gel together and live up their recruiting hype.
