Like the coaching staff complimented itself and the players for, I did not panic after quarter 1.
It was frustrating to watch, but you just had this feeling that everything was going to correct itself. And it did. Logan found his touch. The line popped open some holes. The defense started to get good pressure. It was fun to watch.
The big concern of the night was the D-line and I thought the young guys answered the bell. Let's talk specifics:
1. Antone Exum - As I hoped, he's getting better. I like where this is heading.
2. Josh Oglesby - Not a ton of running room for him on Saturday, but he ran tough with what he had.
3. Logan Thomas - I'm trying not to get too excited here, but he's making it difficult. I think we're seeing a special talent develop. By no means do I think he's arrived. The first quarter is proof of that, both in decision making and touch. However, he settled in, made some beautiful throws and went through his read progression nicely. And with the ball in his hands, he's going to do work. I swear, if we ever get to 3rd-and-1 and do not make it because we didn't sneak, I'm going to fire a coach myself.
4. David Wilson - He's out-pacing Ryan Williams' 1,655-yard season. That stat is better than any compliment I could give for Saturday night's effort.
