here are my top 10 improvements and areas where I'm excited after tonight's game. 1) DEFENSE- our defense came alive after the 1st quarter. Finally see some tackling. It looked dismal after 17-0 but they seem better. Still porous on defense at times, but improving. 2) over 500 yards of offense. Shocked. 3) running game- a few good long runs. Anyone else miss the good ol days of Chris Brown and Bobby purify?? Great buffs. But tonight, welcome runs from Powell and Lindsay 4) student section showed up early and was making a difference. I thought it might be empty but they were there. 5) new facilities. Many empty seats over there but it's awesome seeing construction at Folsom! Loved the black seats. 6) Gehrke- I have no worries now if sefo goes down with injury. Gehrke seemed impressive in the few plays he had. 7) diehard fans- in my section you could tell the diehards have some optimism back. Sure we lost but people were optimistic in my section. 8) Philip Lindsay. Loved seeng him play. 9) Shay fields, Bryce bobo, Nelson Spruce. 10) coaching. Still some questionable calls but overall, I think the coaches got the players to believe we could do this. I think HCMM is maybe really right on when he says we are so young. I feel better about who we have as coaches now after this game. Let see some more progress next week.
