    The season couldn't have started much better for us. We knew the schedule wasn't going to be difficult, but we got exactly what we wanted... provided Lewis and Charlton heal up and are ready to go again next week.

    Brady Hoke and Greg Mattison deserve a lot of credit for the defense, but the improvements in the offense are all Harbaugh. It's going to be a very good year.

    So, a question to get it started. Who impressed you the most week 1?

    Pretty much the whole team impressed me.. Speight needs to work hard on his passing skills

    Agreed on Speight. I was thinking of an unusual pick, Mason Cole. The line worked well together and opened up some good holes.

    I've also started wondering if maybe Harbaugh is really planning to start O'Korn in B1G play and is just getting Speight more experience. I know it sounds way out there, but our coach is anything but contemporary.

    Lot's to mention but just to name 1 I'm going with Chris Evans.

    I like how he runs......He runs to a point on the field and if he gets there first you lose because it then becomes a race and he's pretty quick and shifty.......Nice to know we have that because he showed it atleast 3 times.....Going to be hard to redshirt him.....Harbaugh played a ton of freshmen today, so curious to see which ones draw the redshirt.

    Evans had a great game. He certainly has the speed that we've been missing at RB the last few years. I'm thinking Walker might be getting the RS. Of all the people who got carries, I didn't see him on the field.

    Oh and Channing Stribling, forgot to mention him.....He got burnt on a deep out route but that's not the end of the world....If I recall he returned one for a pick 6 and now that I'm thinking about it was it two? Or did Hill get one....I forget because the scoring was just fast and furious.....

    They were picking on Channing and he stood his ground just fine today, hope it holds up with more accurate QBs.

    This was the earliest upset Saturday I can remember, we also had some big upsets.

    Houston over #3 OU
    Wisconsin over #5 LSU
    Texas A&M over #16 UCLA
    S. Alabama over Miss St
    W. Michigan over Northwestern
    Richmond over Virginia

    and still counting

    You're right, he responded well. He was out of place on a few throws early but did pick two passes off (first called back by a penalty). Hill and Stribling both had pick 6s.

    I thought OU could handle Houston. I figured Wisky could beat LSU, it got gloomy for a while but the Badgers did it.. I'd really like to see USC beat Bama :nod:

    They gave up an unacceptable amount of points to Hawaii... They won't be so lucky against Central Florida this week...
