I’m glad we’re 7-0, but it’s tough to watch …

It is great to see them winning close games; no doubt the confidence is incredible. I think the fact they think they can do anything leads to taking early risks that could lead to big plays or INTs. Colvin should have been intercepted another time in LU territory in the first half (end of first quarter I think) as he tried to avoid a sack.

In some ways, this team’s confidence  reminds me of the 1979 team — I had to look it up.  It won lots of games — few blowouts, even against shaky teams. That team’s offense was not as good (no quick strike offense) as this one’s, but its defense probably was better … and they lost in the I-AA final after winning only one prior playoff game.
