Besides Emmons, no other significant injuries to report correct?

The guys put together 3 solid quarters. I didnít think we would have much to take from this game but Iím pleased with all the stuff you guys have mentioned. Robison looked like he was in control and was taking what the defense gave him. Hopefully this storm leaves us alone and we see the guys put 4 good quarters together next week.†

Probably as happy as you could be considering a 21-point loss. †My daughter and I were literally yelling and cheering as the guys scored those last 2 times. †I am sure there will be talk about Ohio State taking their foot off the gas, but last I saw they still had their starters in until the very last drive (and were still inexplicably trying to throw the ball - they are lucky Fields didn't get hurt on that last corner blitz).

What is important are CUSA games - and I think looking past the first quarter today the Owls showed they have the talent and have grown to be a very dangerous team. †And check the posts - it didn't play out like I predicted, but I think a few of us correctly picked the exact score at 45-21 :-)

i didnt get to catch much of the game today because of the obvious stuff going on with that "Storm" out there, but from what I did it looked good. 1st quarter is the different but alot could be attributed that to nerves emtions, and just going up against one of the best team in the country, but you can see a difference in the way the team played.

1.) Defense didnt quit. despite allowing big plays in the first quarter, they tigten up and made stops and forced a turn over from what I saw, though there may be more. Expecting them to build on this.

2.) Offense under Robinson minus their performance at the start performed better. I will echo the statements of everyone previously. More mature Robinson could pay dividens for us. Feel so sorry for Emmons. I was hoping to see him play, and hopefully we can get him a medical redshirt.

3.) Special teams is a vast improvement over last year. Rivas making those field goals and extra points were huge for us. last year when he came in it was a 50-50 crap shoot with him. Punting game if our punter can do the same thing next week as he did this week by flipping the field, it will pay dividens for us.

There are things to work for next weeks game is obvivous but there is a lot to build on from today's game. So trust the process and trust the staff and lets get ready for the Knigths of UCF. GO OWLS!

just went through the up and down reading this thread....i went through it during the game.....I almost forgot how bad it was at the start....that second half gave me hope that UCF will be in for one hell of a game next week....
