Tay Odoms & The Team

Submitted by DixieWreck on January 1st, 2011 at 10:22 PM

How about a bright spot today with the play of Tay Odoms!?  To overcome an injury such as he has and to put forth quite the effort on the field today I found it to be a great 'lead by example' scenario for the rest of the team to bare witness.   I was also thinking how during the last couple seasons his play could leave your stomach aching with concern with his difficulties holding onto or catching the ball but today I didn't feel that nervous sinking feeling in my stomach once.  Experienced players are a novelty in all sports, of which this team is slowly growing up and no doubt we will be a stronger team next year.  Go Blue, Keep The Faith!

His effort to fight for extra yards on kick returns really made me happy that he was back. It really looked like he was playing with determination and even some anger. Glad he'll be back next year!

I have faith! Go Blue!!

I love Tay...  He obviously wanted to play really badly and looked like he was playing his ass of today.  

But honestly, I believe ALL of the players on this team play with maximum effort.  I really think that is the biggest reason I root for this team so hard.  I think these are hard-working kids and they've paid their dues with a lot of effort.  It just seems as though the scheme (defensively obviously), and their talent level is what is preventing them from achieving success.  Certainly not effort.

Props to Odoms for coming back and playing well today.

Beyond that, the most striking thing for me is how much better he is today compared to when he was forced to play as a true frosh.  Talented players that put in the work do improve.

that the team played hard till the end; they did not give up. None of those hosers in the media can ask Coach Rod if he lost control of the team, they all played hard for themselves and the coaches.

We sat across the isle from his family they were very nice and were very excited to see him back. His TD was in our corner of the endzone so that was very exciting. Martell Webbs family was there too and started some Let's Go Blue chants.
