    A few thoughts leaving the game today

    - First team offense looked crisp

    - Vad Lee looked smooth

    - Loved the time of when the offense was in shotgun

    - Summers played very well

    - Harrison Butker has a leg on him

    - PJ Davis isn't afraid to hit
    - Justin Thomas is fast, very fast

    - Sims ran hard

    - Laskey played good as well

    - Defense played hard

    - Louis Young had some struggles

    - Jemea Thomas got hurt during the game...hope it was just cramps.

    Eric, it appears we watched the same game LOL I'm sure there will be some adverse commentary, though. There always seems to be some fans who refuse to acknowledge the good and prefer to focus on the negative.

    Looked very good. I was surprised at how effective Vad ran the option for the first game. Justin is faster than I thought. Pleased with how we look

    That's good.

    I was sitting about seven rows behind the 50 yard line and they spent awhile working on him.

    Looks like we did good on injury front today.

    I think there were only 2 penalties against us. That is a big improvement.

    Vad was 7/11 189 yards. That's perfect for our offense. I enjoyed the designed quick passes to Summers and let him get yards with a stiff arm like Bay Bay used to do.

    Summers down the field catch was great.

    Vad Lee had a pretty throw to Godhigh for a TD.

    Vad's pass to Sims for the TD might have been his best as he had a man right in his face and had to adjust his throw. Sims made a good adjustment to the ball and the rest was, as they say, history!

    The defense had great communication. I saw guys talking, listening, and moving in unison before the snap.

    There were some issues with the CBs getting ready when Elon was on the hurry up offense.

    We did give up some advantage when the CB were in press coverage making defending the long ball difficult.

    Did Smelter play. Whatever happened to Marcus Allen. He was a beast down here on the Ga-Fla line. And Shawn Green?

    Linebackers made a ton of tackles rather than the safeties. That excited me!

    Smelter played a good bit.

    Shawn Green was out injuried.

    Marcus Allen is also nicked up.

    The thing that stands out for me with Summers is that he adjusts to the ball very well, probably better than anyone we've had since BayBay, and then catches with his hands. He's gonna be great for us. If Waller was beating him in practice then we're gonna be in good shape.

    Corey Dennis' downfield blocking (ahead of Sim's reception TD?) was very good.

    Smelter played, but I didn't see anything that jumped out at me good or bad.

    While CPJ complained about our pass-blocking in the post-game presser, I still think it was better today than it often was in past years.

    Our D shut them out without seemingly doing much more than vanilla. Davis did fine, and he hits like a truck, as a back-up LB. But, he is a bit of a drop off from Quayshawn, especially in coverage.

    I'm glad CP got his touchdown, and his kick-off (punt?) coverage was great!

    This game was about as good as I could hope. We still need to improve when our starters leave the field on D, but they didn't give up the huge play or a score.

    It looked like our LT kept getting beat.
    But Vad adjusted to the rush and managed to get some good throws.
    With such an inferior opponent, I have no idea how good we are.. But putting 70 up on anyone is damn good.

    Very similar to the TD pass in the sun bowl at the goal line. Sims ran past his blocking assignment and 6 pts

    I'm scared that we still haven't learned how to stop the quick slant. Elon used it quite a bit today and was successful
