Not a lot to say, but here's a few things to propel us into a week that is sure to be fraught with words, memes, tweets, posts, bulletin board material, and then more words.
- My initial takeaway after the first half is that Coaches Rocker and Sale are going to have a lot of asses to chew this week. I thought Southern played with a lot of intensity in the trenches and for a big span of the first thirty minutes were winning the battle at the point of attack.
- Other than that, the game went about as expected. Chubb got his yards. Michel dazzled. The reserves got plenty of time and played well.
- Lambert picked up right where he left off against the Gamecocks. Beautiful deep pass to Mitchell that was called back.
- The kick coverage was better. I'm sure the players heard a lot about it through the week. Willie Quinn had a long of 32 yards and averaged just over 20. That shows some accountability for improving in that area after the USCe game.
- The crowd was good for a non-conference cupcake after a rainy tailgate. The Southern Band was as advertised. We had a few Jaguar fans in our section. Quiet bunch until halftime when they moved to the edge of the tunnel and recorded the show while singing and dancing.
All in all, a good warmup to a week we've been looking forward to for quite some time. Get some rest, take your vitamins. Go Dawgs!
