The game shows how the no huddle offense kills us. We averaged more yds per play than GT,but GT ran almost 30 more plays than us. Our D didn't play that well but was exhausted in the end. Our offense showed some promise especially with both Stacy and Norman in there. Norman and Stacy will be fun to watch if they can both stay healthy the next three years. it would be nice to find a playmaker at WR to go along with them, because then our offense would have some balancce to it.

In general I feel much better after this lost than Miss St., Ole Miss or Army but a loss is still a loss.

Okay, here is an anology.

VU: Western Carolina

Georgia Tech (or Florida): VU

It's just a mismatch!

It didn't look like a mismatch until the fourth quarter.

And Western Carolina sure as Hell didn't put up 31 points on us.

A loss is a loss, but give the team a little credit for finding an offensive rhythm after wandering in the desert all year.
