2. There were enough bright spots on defense that I think we're going to get there... if we ever get healthy. The freshmen who have been playing all year were making good decisions and played well - they've improved with the coaching and playing time. We just don't have enough horses right now. 3. Hopefully some people who were at the game can confirm this, but from my couch 2,000 miles away it didn't look like there were any players on the sidelines ****ing around. It also sure looked to me like at one point during the second half that Embree was reminding the players to stay focused on the game when they were on the sidelines. This to me is a very good sign that the rot is starting to be cleared, and attitudes are changing. I think it was naive of us to think Embree could make the attitude change any faster than he has done - the team really appears to finally be coming around. We're not there yet, but at least I am finally 100% sure that we've left. 4. Speedy is great running back and a fantastic Buffalo.
