    Gurley was as advertised. Freshmen Nick Chubb and Sony Michel were as well. 298 yards on twenty five carries combined.

    After a lack luster first half on defense the guys bought into our new DC's scheme and gave up a whopping 15 yards total offense in the second half. It sure feels good starting the season starting out like that!

    Were Georgia and Texas A&M the only teams that over achieved opening weekend?

    #83 for LSU looks to be a talent or Bucky's CB's need to learn not to let the guys get between them & the goal

    May be the only game Wisconsin loses all year, doubt if the same can be said for LSU -

    Where's Jacob ??????????????????

    Biggest surprise for me was Texas Tech barely beating Central Arkansas 42-35.

    Looked like it took a first half for a few teams to wake up.
    Many teams that were supposed to win, won. But it didn't come easy.
    Florida St, Bama, LSU, Auburn...all had rough to ugly(LSU) first half's
    and then much better 2nd half's to put it away.

    Not deserved? C'mon man.... lol
    LSU went on a 21-0 streak to end the game with the win.
    New players making their first come back on a grand stage from a deficit
    while shutting down your opponent is a deserved game.

    Last second wins on a fluke, would better fit the undeserved category.

    Was thinking the same thing considering Wisconsin
    doesn't play Ohio St, Mich St, Michigan or Penn St. this season.

    Man, how'd they pull that off?

    i fell asleep in the third with lsu down by three possessions. i woke up this morning at 4:30 and the replay was in the 4th. hilliard was killing. great comeback win. i think jacob will be up and around soon, he may have not been able to get to sunday school this morning after that game!

    todd gurley......todd gurley......todd gurley......wow! matters not how old we are or how many football players and games we have seen. that was a rare game by a grown man! he is better than i thought. i had gurley in the mike davis/tj yeldon category.....i wuz wrong. did i say WOW?

    fsu looked a little dazed at times and the cowboys were ready. if not for the early pick six, this one coulda been a real scare for the noles. the td run by winston was a classic!

    i have been on the prescott bandwagon since he and state beat alabama on everything but the scoreboard last season. he came to play last night and is one of the best in the nation, imo. the bullies are gonna beat some people this year.

    hogs are much improved. but the boogs were just too much after marshall's bong hits took the edge off of the first game jitters.

    i have to up my prediction on bama's wins this season to 5. i said earlier they would win four and wvu wasn't one of the four. no defense of the uptempo and quarterback play that got it done but still seems suspicious. dustin would you please set up a spreadsheet for my bet with jacob on henry and fournette. (in case of a tie, i hope coachmo saw henry pick up the backside corner on the screen to fowler!)

    Critiquing a players first ever College Football Game seems a little silly no?

    One thing I don't agree with, is Fournette on Kick returns. He avg. 23 yards
    but you place him in a pretty vulnerable position too.

    Was Gordon hurt? If not the entire Wisc coaching staff should be fired.

    Hilliard looks to be in the best shape of his career. He is going to hurt some defenses if the O line will give him half a chance. Looks like he is determined to hold on to his starting spot this year.

    Fournette will be fine. Give him a little time. I agree with Dustin - why have him running back kickoffs with the abundance of talent on the bench? Seems like an unnecessary risk.

    LSU's mighty O -line better improve before SEC play. If they repeat last nights performance the Tigas are in for a long season.

    Either Wisc had absolutely nothing in the way of WRs, or LSU's D-backs are even better than expected. Probably some of both.

    Jennings plays well when he doesn't play tentatively. Going to have to turn the guy loose and either sink or swim with him (for now). Based on Harris' brief appearance, he didn't look ready.

    I look for a lot of improvement before the Auburn game. (Trying real hard to be optimistic!)
