Jester is right about Chris Lovick. Very fast & smoked a DB who had an angle on him for a long TD run. Appeared to have some toughness to him, too. I was pretty impressed with our backup QB, a redshirt frosh named Roman Fuller who was very accurate on short & medium throws. Didn't see him throw it long.

Prince is quick, shifty & continues to run hard. Brin throws a beautiful ball. Perfect spiral, always, but he overthrew a few deep balls. He's apparently been kind of erratic with deep throws in practice. Lights out one day & not so the next. Not worried about it because Stokes, Santana, Crawford, Josh Johnson & Co. will catch a bunch of those deep balls.

A guy I wasn't aware of, a JUCO xfer named Wallace-#22-will help us in the back-end. Nice closing speed & can cover as a safety. At LB, another guy (Dorian Hopkins-#41) made a bunch of tackles. Darrius Murdock on the DL was a stud (from Union HS) as was Goodlow-only a Jr. Add Jaxon Player, Stevenson, Wick, young H. Grant & others...I'm not concerned about our D-line. Of course, with Greene, Evans, K. Ray, C. Williams, T. Martin & others, we should have a top AACK D-backfield once again. Just very excited!

The D is absolutely loaded and may be better than last year even with losing Zaven. There were guys who stepped in and made plays when Zaven was off the field last season.
Can anyone talk about the kicking? Did Tipton kick any FGs? How about kickoffs? Did the KOs reach the endzone? It was a clear weakness for our team last year as opponents probably avg a starting field position after we score of about the 35 yd line.

Brin looks solid. I saw some good balls that normally would have been caught by Crawford and Stokes. Also thought Roman Fuller looked pretty comfortable . This team will be fun to follow.

Zach Long kicked field goals, but Tipton was there. I don’t remember any kickoffs.

I thought Brin looked pretty good overall. He gets rid of the ball quickly and has good zip on the ball. He threw some great passes & missed on some passes. The wind contributed to a few long pass overthrows. I think he’s going to be somewhat like Brett Favre in that he will err on being too aggressive vs too passive. Fuller played better than I expected as back up QB.

Our WRs were OK, but not as impressive as they can be. We had some nice catches, but a few drops. Crawford dropped a beautiful 40-50 yd pass in the end zone. I hope their overall lack of separation is due to our good DBs & the defense knowing our routes & plays.

I was very impressed impressed with our defense overall, especially our depth. Our 2nd team LBs look as good as many of our previous years 1st team LBs.

Our RBs looked very good, especially #23, Watkins & #6, Lovick. Watkins has great acceleration and looks big enough to run through tackles. Lovick is shifty & fast.

Walk on NT #44, Joseph Anderson had a few nice plays. Player & Stevenson didn’t suit up today. #58 DE, Devin Lamp, looked very good rushing the passer. All 3 levels of our defense look very good.

Overall, I’m really looking forward to the fall & today did nothing to dampen my enthusiasm!

I wasn’t there but the comments I received from several folks that were, leads me to believe that Coach Hanson deserves national recognition for the job he’s done on the O line in just a year. Next season could be his last at TU. He’s that good.

If we do as well as we think we might, we could potentially lose Monty.

I would say so Huffy I mean we are big athletic have some interchangeable parts and depth going to be fun watching those guys punish teams into the 3rd and 4th quarters plus we have some backs that can hit the holes

I’m good with Brin taking chances. It’s the only reason we beat Tulane. Keep slingin’ it, young man!

I'm finally excited for the season. Even tho we still have monty can't wait to see brin and our offense with him at qb and hopefully continue to see the defense ball out.

Tipton kicked off into the wind to open the scrimmage. Didn't hit it well. Went to the 15. He kicked an extra point. He has a stronger leg than Long and needs to be the kickoff specialist.
