It's late. We'll have more tomorrow, much more, but for now a couple of thoughts.
First, a huge win and a dismantling of a Tulsa team that was expected to be very good.
Second, BG's defense is as advertised. Even with some losses over the summer, the Pettus suspension and an early injury, the defense was dominating, holding a run-oriented Golden Hurricane team to 51 yards passing.
Third, I give Coach credit. Matt Schilz came out and did what we all remembered him doing last year, and Coach made the change and fast. Johnson wasn't incredible throwing the ball but he made some plays with his feet and seemed to give the team an immediate lift. I'm guessing this will be a permanent change. Either way, it took some guts. (Actually, I see in the The Blade that Coach Clawson said that using Johnson after three or four series was actually the plan. That seems kind of implausible, but that's what he said).
Fourth, I think we have a new fan favorite. We need a nickname, but William Houston is going to be very popular with the BG fans....he's the fridge, the beef...I don't know. Anyway, dude scored 3 times in his debut.
Fifth....great night for special teams.
Again, lots more to talk about, but it is late. It was a great night to be a Falcon. Anyone who told you that close games were better is nuts. That's the way I want to watch!
I think we have something here.
