I was impressed by the guy who tackled Funchess on the jump.  He could've gotten kicked in the head, legs could've slipped through, and Funchess' legs were moving fast so they couldn't have been easy to grab.  He somehow got both arms on 'em and clung.

I mean, overall they were completely outclassed, but on a few occasions they made some plays.

One thing I don't get about the pointing. . . the O-line is facing the opposite direction.  Who's looking?  Is it for self-reference?  Or is it to let the defense know they've been figured out?

These pics make it look like the "maize" on the helmet wings, jersey numbers, and pants pretty much matched.  Which has not always been the case (I recall games in '12 where the helmet wings, helmet numbers, jersey numbers, and pants each looked like a different color).

Tints can always look different in different pics/video.  Can anyone at the game confirm . . . do things finally match?

The only thing wrong with Devin Funchess is that his name is a step below Simms McElfresh and Bobo Beathard.  Those are serious football names!

But looking through the photos of Devin - my God does he have some serious hops.  Besides being freakishly tall, he has a world class vertical.

I just want to say, awesome job to the photographers. There are some spectacular shots in these galleries and looking through helps keep me hyped up during the week!

The shot of Funchess looking to the side with the stadium seats reflected in his helmet, the shot of an App State defender whiffing a tackle on Green, the shot of Funchess leaping over the defender while Chesson looks on, the one of Charlton, Hurst and Morgan celebrating, the unbelievable Gardner stiffarm...fantastic.
