I love hearing all the stuff regarding team unity and attitude. Those are things that you can't coach yet are essential for success. Also the stuff concerning Swoopes' attitude change is huge. We'll see how he carries himself on the field but that has always been my biggest criticism of him. A Qb needs to exhibit confidence and be a leader on the field. Too many times last year Swoopes left the field with his head down and found a spot on the sideline by himself to hang his head.

Says Charlie... "I'm just surprised about how much energy we've had."

The main reason I'm high on winning the opener at South Bend, and then making a run to 6-0 through the OU game: the energy this team is going to bring on the field on every down.

 

Every second of every play, every tick of the clock between plays. On the field and on the sidelines.

 

You watch. With the conditioning and athleticism...just you watch.

 

An x-factor to stir the pot to boiling is the attitude of first year players, making a statement.

Charlie Strong seemed more upbeat and confident in the presser, which is a surprise to me and I'm excited about it. 

 

Get the Kool-Aid box out.

 

Sounds like it's the freshman class is having a big effect on the team. This looks to me like the best group of freshman since Vince Young's 2002 class.
