Uuuuuuuuge Win For The Dawgs!
A week and a half ago I wrote a long post on the importance of this game regarding long term ramifications and perceptions. I thought this game was so important I couldn't watch it live, because of a serious case of bad vibes. When I came out of the man cave at 7:30pm to see if it was safe to come downstairs I was pleasantly surprised to see a big smile on my wife's face. That smile told me we had won. I grabbed a plate of food and hurried back upstairs to watch the game, knowing a heart attack wasn't likely!
What I saw was the redemption of Jake Fromm, a resilient offensive line that did a better job of protecting the QB and an offensive strategy that speaks to the real identity of this team. I also saw a defense that needs a lot of work, but did enough to make things hard on Franks. We have serious issues at ILB that can only be remedied by great recruiting. The one bright spot on our DL is Jordan Davis who got his first start as a Bulldog and immediately made a positive impact. That group could also use great recruiting and some guys to step-up and put their man pants on.
This is a young team with a long way to go, but yesterday's victory answered a lot of questions coming out of the LSU loss. The entire team got better, including the coaching staff... at the end of the day that's all you can ask for.
