What a game! Folks, that was a great college football game. Regardless of whether you liked the results or not you have to appreciate what you watched on Saturday. That stadium was rocking, the teams were fired up and they put everything out there on the field. I loved the way the game flowed. I loved the two heavyweight fighters standing toe to toe trading blows in the center of the ring until the end. I enjoyed that the game was never certain until the last seconds ticked off the clock. I would have liked different results ... but that's just the way it goes sometimes. A 3 point victory is home field advantage. Our defense is rebuilding. Period. That's it. I'm not thrilled with the type of defense that was run in the final minutes (never been a fan of soft defenses with a lead in the final minutes of any game pro or college which happens all the time) but I do have faith in Chavis. He has proven year after year why he is one of the best and I am confident that he will continue to mold these young men into a fine group. Just don't forget how tough it is to re-tool with so many new starters. And don't forget how tough it is to go into a place like Georgia and come out with a victory. Those guys were playing for their 2013 lives. One more loss and you can drop UGA from the BCS Championship conversation. Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want. This young team has some great days in front of them and the good news is they are going to get better. I think the whole Tiger team gained some valuable experience on Saturday that will serve them well especially when you look at the schedule ahead. An early November date in T-Town comes to mind. So ... back to reality. We knew this was going to be a tough one to win (and many had this penciled in as an "L" before the start of the season) but that may have been forgotten with the way the Tigers season started. LSU has everything in front of them and their path to the Championship has not changed. Just win. So don't forget that it's not where you start, it's how you finish and I don't see this team quitting. There are some fine days ahead this season. So wrap up the injuries, pick up the remote from behind the couch where it landed last night, dust off your favorite ballcap, mix up a bloody and get ready for the next one. It aint over yet. Not by a long shot.
