How bout them Panthers!!!
Suggestion for the rest of the season for Steve Pederson. Mr. Pederson please call all of the teams on the remainder of the schedule and move the games to their stadiums. This team is tough on the road.
I am very proud to be a fan of this team because of how they fight. They have some serious character. I was worried at the end of the half but they just made it happen when they had to. It wasn't always pretty, but good teams find ways to win games.
Examples of character:
- Aaron Berry, who struggled last game, and many times in this game, came up with a huge 3rd down pass breakup forcing the last series.
- Pat Bostick, although Bostick struggled and made several devastating pics. He made the huge fourth down fade pass to Baldwin.
- The defensive line- Last week, they didn't really cause much havoc in the backfield. Today, they pressured Clausen the entire day. It was more impressive that this was with only three and four man rushes. They have some non-stop motors.
That was a great win to get while giving Billy Stull a week of rest. Like they said he was cleared to play but it was good to give him a week without hitting. He will be ready to go for Louisville I am sure. It is obvious that this team will need him to win against some of the better teams on the remainder of the schedule. With him running the show I think the Panthers would have beat ND by at least 20, the offense is a different monster when he is in there. Congrats, to all of the guys, they played a great game, great D in the overtime, and they deserved the win.
Oh ya, McCoy is incredible, but we already knew that. Before the game the NBC announcers said that he was not known by many around the country. Well, I am sure that the Irish fans all know who he is.
