Just my thoughts...

No big secret here but I get extremely anxious before games. I am always very excited but nervous in the back of my mind. I do not remember feeling this to this extreme before 2004. The girls in my family got together and make some cake pops and cupcakes early in the afternoon. Ella made a banner. Emma drew the AU on the cupcakes. I thought she did pretty well considering she's 10.


The day progressed.  There were not really any games keeping my attention most of the afternoon, so I just felt more and more anxious as the afternoon passed. (If yall laugh at this, I will not believe that you do not also feel the same way) Southern Miss did not do as well as I had hoped. The USM band played a song for Texas usually reserved only for senior day. Finally it was time for the game. I was all a jumble of nerves and excitement. Then of course, we hear about the suspensions because it wouldn't be Auburn football without last minute drama (although I had heard rumors of suspensions earlier in the week on local sports radio. A couple of them made me feel more anxious. The game started finally! I got a little anxious around the beginning of the 2nd quarter but I was glad when I could relax a little. Since you don't need me to recap the entire game, here are my thoughts:

Jarrett: Not bad, I knew he needed to shake off some rust. I was impressed that he was able to keep it together and get back in rhythm.

Kerryon: I hope he's ok! He was having a heckuva game. He sure does have a pretty smile.

Kam Martin: Stepped up to the plate big time! Did his home state very proud!!!

Will Hastings: (almost called him Will Herring) Wow! So glad he got a scholarship. That catch in the endzone was a thing of beauty.

Prince Tega: Proud that he got to start.

Braden Smith: Made some great blocks.

O-Line overall: Needs a little bit of work but they finally seemed to get in the swing of things.

Daniel: Have faith in him. Just a little bump in the road. He is human after all.

Devin Adams: I was really proud to see him play.

I know I am probably leaving someone out.

Defense: Like whoa.

Tre: Wow, what a performance

Deshaun: He amazes me every year.

Jeff Holland: Have yourself a game, young man. I noticed on the Football Review, he said he thought he played pretty well. Yeah, I'd say you did, Jeff!!!

Derrick Brown: excellent game

Tray Matthews; Great as always

I know there are some that I have left out. This is just what I can remember.  I was thoroughly excited and impressed with the defense. I know they know some of the things they need to work on and I have faith there will be improvements. I was glad to see halftime adjustments and improvements which is something that I think we missed last year.
