    This win

    Wow....sorry but I was worried....lots of missed tackles...game should have been a higher score then what it was.....I hope we correct this for the next game. Lots and lots of more work to do...BUT we got a win...undefeated.

    I can see us being 3-1 going into conference play

    anyone catch how many "wildcats" was called during the game???

    Zero.

    The only thing on offense that was plain vanilla was the pass by Money.

    I definately did not leave the game thinking "we got everything figured out, we'll be fine, get my tickets for Pasadena" But I was blown away by our team not commiting one offensive or defensive penalty. To my knowledge that has never happened and without question hasn't happened since I've been going to games. I think that speaks volumes about the attention to detail and the precision our new coaching staff has put into each and every practice. I think we've definately got the right man for the job, and I was so proud to see the place packed last night.

    The coaches, IMO, left a lot to be desired on purpose. Not so much on the defensive side of the ball, but certainly the offense. TH's last stop should be enough to tell you that we are fully capable of running a true spread offense. The game on Thursday was plain and simple. The team needed to establish that it could in fact play solid football against a decent opponent. I also think that this game was played to build confidence and I'm 99.9% sure, Mission Accomplished. I think that we look like the team that we were expecting come a week from today.
