As you may have noticed, I have kinda given up on this whole blog thing but now that college football season has begun I feel compelled to remark upon the Texas A&M-Arizona State game. I watched the entire game Sunday morning (can't watch it live---get too nervous) and here are some thoughts:
1. Holy Shit! We played some defense.
2. Garrett and Hall are friggin awesome.
3. Chavis was a great get.
4. Christian Kirk is great and will get greater.
5. Do we have any running backs besides Carson? He did great....ran tough, picked up the blitz...but he cannot carry that load for an entire season.
6. Our punter is REALLY good. (Read this morning that the injury isn't too bad).
7. Ricky Seals Jones is a big disappointment. I don't think he is very smart.
8. I was a little disappointed in the o-line but, as Oxey suggested, the ASU defense is pretty good.
9. Not worried about the QB play---will improve. Thought Allen kept his composure quite well after getting pulled. Murray was impressive but he sure is small.
10. Kudos to Brandon Williams for agreeing to switch to defense. Hope he picks it up and excels.
Here is some analysis of Ball State, our next opponent. Now I must go online and buy some Aggie paraphernalia.
