Im likING #36 Demarco LB

If Demarco plays himself into serious snaps what a great story. The unheralded and undersized brother of the star works hard and patiently matures into a player. Rooting for him.

Guess I need to read up on his story, have never heard a word of that kid but he is flat killing it tonight

They just ran a promo on  next season's schedule showing all of our pick 6s and bad plays against each opponent.  Who is the idiot who put that together for OUR SPRING game?  WTF?

I’m not a huge fan of our own LHN if I’m being honest

My five quick thoughts

1. The offensive line isn't much better than last year's version.

2. The defense looks salty. Roach and Hager definitely stood out tonight.

3. LJH is the best running back on the squad, with Yoder coming in second.

4. The two young QB's will be at the top of the depth chart next year.

5. LJH and Johnson will be the offense this next season.

After what I saw tonight I am downgrading my expectations for next season. 7 wins in the regular season.

First half was 12min quarters, 2nd half was 10min. 

OL didn't get enough push on run plays for sure, hard to tell from 3rd row at stadium about pass pro. 

i thought most punts were pretty good, looked like he had a 60yarder in there. 

3 10+ yard runs from RBs all game that I can remember, 1 by Young and 1 by Carter, Carter just isn't impressive. 

J McCollough with a few pressures and a coule sacks. Maybe he gets more time a B-Backer? 

Collin and LJH both played well. Reece played decent from what I rememeber. 

4th Q, Thompson with back to back dimes and then a 20yarder couple plays later. 

Overall, first half, we just arnt crisp. Penalties will kill drives again. I just don't think we can recover from a penalty Bc yards seem too hard to come by at this point. OL needs to spend every waking second together. Maybe sleep next to each other in sleeping bags. RBs are opposite of dynamic. Duvernay with 1 very nice deep catch where he got hit and held on. No much else. LJH and CJ are studs. No huge drops on the day. Few close calls on tipped passes. Sam no Shane stood out, neither will take over the game. Neither was bad. Horrible fumbled exchange on RPO early btw Sam and Carter. 

Zero sum game, many guys that will play snaps out and Anderson should take over at LT in a couple months. 

Hope recruiting went great this weekend! Weather held up great.

A bit of an over reaction imho... If this team only has 7 wins, Herman's seat will be extremely hot and recruiting will probably fall apart.  Not happening.

I saw positives and negatives, but overall feel better about this team than I did at this time last year. 

You want the defense to look salty against your offense at this time of the year. It was a vanilla offense, showed off a couple long throws for the fans and recruits and nobody got hurt - mission accomplished. 

Herman and staff will fine tune this thing and get their 10 wins. May not be pretty at times, but will get it done.
