Until I see proof that we can beat an opponent by scheme rather than talent I will not feel great about a win. However I'm still happy that alabama football is back!
    What does outscheme them mean? No need to be clever if you can just punch them in the teeth. Also, I thought our offensive adjustments in the passing game really showed. We took exactly what they gave us. If they played man we ran crossing routes. If they played off we ran WR bubble throws. That's pretty good play calling and taking what the defense gives through scheme. Yah, the guards after catch are talent for sure. Offensive line looked ok in pass protection but needs more consistency in run blocking. Defense looked ok but Duke was an abysmal offensive team. I think it was a good game to break in 2 new ILBs. They looked confident and they were hitting people really hard. They were almost always in the right gap, being vocal and laying lumber. What more could we really ask from this game? A decent opener to shake off the Russian, break in some new players and deal with some early suspensions.

    Update, the most inexplicably stupid set of decisions Iíve ever seen by both teams in the last 2min of football, ever.

    UNC takes a knee on 4th instead of punting, giving USC the ball back in UNC territory with 11sec. USC has a chance to win. Then Bentley not only takes a sack, but fumbles. Then USC failed to tackle the guy with the ball, not that it mattered, and he runs it in for a TD. Comedy of errors.

    If you can't watch that game today and see that the deficiencies that reared their ugly head last year have been dealt with, then I can't help you. There is still much work yet to do, but they are headed in the right direction.
    Running offense was slow to develop...otherwise a really good win. We will be better down the road...

    I predicted 24-10 and for awhile that looked good. But thankfully the 2nd half performance was up to standards. Still got work to do. We will be ok until November barring injury. November will be the test. Proud of the guys and coaches! RTR!

It's a reminder to myself on how hard it truly is to simply even attempt a short range kick. So Reichard (or any kicker) missing 45+ yrd kicks (close misses at that) will never get a bad word from me. Reichard had a good day, in my eyes.

    A solid win over Duke while not remotely playing up to the full potential of this team, is a good start. Not to mention Coach gets a lot of "teaching moments" this week.

    I'm not a Mack fan but I thought it was a nice moment. Hes got a different style but it's got to be emotional to come back to coaching and win a tight opening game with team that really sucked last year. I'm ambivalent about both teams so he can have that moment.

    It was a very nice moment, whether or not you like the man - he was showing passion for his players....

    I used to kick some 20+ years ago. One day I was complaining about our kicking and made the statement "I could make that". A friend challenged me. I treid 5 kicks, made 2, but they were downright ugly kicks.
