Some key notes:

-Shaw did not take a snap at TB, but was healthy enough to play special teams (unless he had an in-game injury that I did not notice that kept him out after the 1st qtr -  anyone????)

-Looks like R. Taylor switched from #21 to #6

-No new freshman got their first snaps (and, therefore, no new burned redshirts)

-Rawls did not take a snap (and considering Hoke's comments this week regarding his limited play against EMU is not enough - by the new rules (?) - to burn his redshirt)

-Obviously, Countess got legit p.t. this week (not sure if it was planned or due to Woolfolk missing time - anyone????)

-Shout out to T. Robinson for his work as gunner on punt team - was always on top of the returner on every punt forcing a fair catch or making the instant stop

-Noticed J. Furman (#14) on special teams for the first time this year making his way to the play

He was wrapping up his receivers. I didn't see them busting out for more yardage than what they got on the catch because Countess was all over them. He was pretty physical. I liked his compete level. I think he might be a starter by the end of the year.

From what I can remember, BWC was in and out pretty much every series. I know for sure he was in on a couple stops and seems to be getting better though I am no where near a football expert. It will be interesting to see what the UFR shows.

EDIT-This was meant to be posted above with the BWC comments.

I noticed Fitzgerald playing a fair amount today.  I was surprised ot see that he was in at WLB instead of backing up at MLB.  Also saw Morgan out there a fair amount at WLB.  I like Hawthorne's playmaking, but I'd love to see a sub at WLB good at playing the run.

Also interesting to see Black as a back-up at SDE instead of WDE.  With Roh's play it makes sense.  Keep Roh on the field and get your best players playing.
