    That dude was flying around all over the field, making hits, getting back in pass protection. Amazing that he is only a freshman with so little HS football experience. HCMM knows talent. I am pretty sure I will be eating some crow (maybe I should eat a wing now) b/c in Duff's season prediction thread I said Gilliam could be the biggest disappointment (just b/c I thought he was being so hyped and normally LBs need some seasoning b/c they are the QB on the D.).

    He gets my game ball. Sure, Wood and P-Rich deserve it as well. But playing well-disciplined and composed game as a TRUE freshman at ILB, it's quite an achievement. He has an untapped potential, it will be a treat watching this young man for next 4 years.

    I distinctly remember Jordan's play in his first game (don't remember anything else about the game). He was a difference maker, and seemed to be everywhere. Although they are not really similar players, Gillam's play was a fitting and honorable tribute to #44.

    While he was probably 10 pounds lighter, I was thinking ted johnson is the better comp than dizon. Impressive debut by AG, for sure.

    I wonder if the season tackles record (freshman or upper classman) is in danger the way he played today.

    Gillam will be tested to a greater extent in the coming games, but he was a stud today.

    I couldn't help but to notice his game either. Was he listed as the starter? I was surprised at the amount of playing time that he got. Obviously, it was well earned playing time.

    Really? After 60 minutes, you're going to throw that out there? The kid played a great game and the staff has obviously done a good job preparing the kids to play. Hopefully this is just the beginning.

    A little too early to be telling people 'told you so' isn't it? CSU may be the worst team we see all season.
