THE GOOD 1. Mettenberger looked like a pro out there. Poised in the pocket and deadly accurate. 2. Beckham might be national player of the week. 3. The new sound system in the stadium has some serious woofers, but it needs an equalizer. 4. Our fullbacks can catch and run, they aren't light guards who line up in the backfield anymore. 5. Play selection was unpredictable, Cameron is definitely working out. 6. The offensive line protected Mettenberger well. 7. Many young defensive backs and offensive linemen finally got some PT. We need the depth there. 8. The officiating was very good. THE BAD 1. Our punter hit two shanks to go along with a couple of boomers. He must find some consistency. 2. Depth on defense is thin, when the reserves were in UAB started looking good. 3. Whoever is running the sound system in Tiger Stadium needs to be fired. They played some really horrible music, very loudly . . . while announcers were trying to speak, when Tiger Band was trying to play, whenever there was a short lull in the action. 4. Blue and Hilliard have still not hit their strides. Hill will be moving up the depth chart rapidly. 5. Defense let its foot off the gas in the 2nd quarter. 6. UAB out-rushed us. Run blocking must improve and a feature running back must emerge. 7. Loston underperformed as usual before going out with an injury. THE UGLY 1. Jennings' red-zone fumble for a huge loss was ugly. He's not ready yet. 2. The linebackers can't cut it. They bit on misdirection and got themselves blocked all night.
