    Thanks C2. I was at the game. The environment was awesome. Both the team and the fans were into it. It's been a while since I had this much optimism for our program.

                When I saw the "duck," I believed that this wasn't the time nor that the play for this juncture in the game. As far as the timing, we had the game headed toward a happy finish for the good guys. Keep your foot on the pedal, but do so with what was working. No real need for the trickeration IMHO. Where execution is concerned, the results make me think it was not a lead pipe cinch. If you run them, they better have the outcome you want. That was a one read play, receiver back to QB behind the convoy. Any throw with a hump gives the D a chance to catch up. But as it stands, it didn't hurt so all is well. Just my personal opinion on gimmicks.

                OL wasn't great by any means, but then they really haven't been for a while. Better in the second.

                My mom used the phrase "Katie bar the door" to let me know if I f'd up either by commission or omission, my @ss was grass! Took me back to my childhood!

                  I'm not sure if yours was Irish, but mine was - and from the south side of Chicago to boot. Her other famous quote was "you may grow past my head, but you'll never grow past my hand." She was true to her word.

                    While I agree about the "trick" play, I am glad we didn't have to try it due to desperation. Nothing wrong with practicing the play when we didn't need it. Just glad it didn't backfire.

                              Cover, you never fail to meet the expectations of the GCMB. Well done as always. There's so much that could be said, but you have Covered (no pun intended, well maybe) it precisely. The analysis you have given has been something I've looked forward to after every game. But to sum it all up, YES this ship is headed in the right direction. Mullen has everything he needs now, FSUck/scUM down, momentum, and relevance. Time for him to take the next step. He may be the guy that can get it done. Again, thanks for your posts and already excited about next year.

                                  Cover, dittos on the great job. This was a solid team win and unlike last year our linemen did not look like boys going against men. You could see the results of the Savage conditioning. Plus I believe that our speed and pure athleticism surprised the Michiganders. The real difference to me is Mullen's play calling and how well we make in game and halftime adjustments. Adjustment was a word that never entered the vocabulary of our previous two coaches.
                                  Even without 2 of their best ballers Michigan's defense is very good. Even though they pressured Frank's through out the game ,their aggressive play gave us some huge plays on the ground. Especially loved Perines TD run in the pass look set. We didn't run many draw plays in that formation this year and I am sure Brown and UM were expecting Felipe to throw. Somewhere the HBC and Fred Taylor were smiling. In watching Bama and the Dawgs we still have a way to go. But while we haven't yet completely turned the corner we are peeking around the edge.

                                  Great win and a very enjoyable season.

                                        If it's any consolation, you have no chance of catching me in the dislikes ratio either.
