The four I-backs all ran well. Brandon Jackson's TD run in the fourth quarter was particularly exciting, although it did come against a tired La. Tech defense. We only saw Kenny Wilson's burst of speed once on a TD run in the first quarter that was called back because of a penalty, but it was enough to see that when he gets in the open, look out.
The offensive line looks to be much improved. Slausen and Nicks are real men in there. Those guys are going to have a real impact this season.
The defensive front looked pretty good as expected. The backfield ... now there's a question mark, especially with Grisby and Fluellen getting dinged up on Saturday. We'll see where that goes. Anytime you have recently converted receivers in the d-backfield like Fluellen, it's got to be a concern for the coaching staff.
