    Here's mine:

    Good:

    Defense. Unreal game. That Toledo O was really good w/ a senior QB (who passed for 3,000 yards last year), a RB who ran for almost 1,500 yards, and a 1,000+ yard WR. Held to 1-13 on 3rd downs and 50 yards rushing. Very impressive

    VHIII. Nice pick. Great debut!

    Jeff Driskel. Solid game (needs to hang onto the ball and have better pocket presence, 2 fumbles).

    Bad:

    Punting. What was up w/ our All-SEC punter today?

    Ugly:

    Penalties. For as good as Easly is, I think he cancels out the good plays by jumping off-sides. This has happened his entire career. It's a complete lack of discipline.

    Overall, I would have liked 1 more score...but I'm not going to complain. Toledo is a good football team.

    Good:
    -Ball
    -Powell
    -Easley (minus the fouls, which I'm not sure are totally his fault.)
    -Driskel
    -Burton

    Bad:
    -I love Kyle, he was my player of the game several games last year, but this was is worst game by far. Not sure what happened?

    -Missing a makeable FG.

    -Penalties killed us again.

    -Should have had at least two more TDs (fouls and then the missed FG and then Patton's drop)

    MIA: Didn't see much from Fowler or Bullard

    Toledo QB missed ALOT of open WR today
    #5 and #14 need to cover better
    Missed quite a few tackles also
    Punting was off
    I think we can get good pressure on the QB's this year
    so we need to play up on the Rec.'s
    instead of playing so far off them

    The good: We won. We didn't have to show much. And, we won.

    Good: the players did real well across the board

    Bad: penalties

    Ugly: offensive game open and the total lack of any passing attack other then ultra short

    Their center flinching on shirt yardage drawing our guys off, however, we should show more discipline.

    Good - Garcia, Moore, and Koehne looked solid! VH3 is the real deal as is K Taylor. DL looked good, especially pleasantly surprised at Orr. He looked great.

    Bad - Roberson got picked on. There's a big gap between #1RB Jones and #2 Taylor.

    Ugly - punting for sure. But I know he's better than that. Our downfield passing was...well, absent. Offsides penalties. Must have been 37 of them.

    BTW, Driskell fumbled twice. First time, Mack didn't pick up the corner blitz, and the seond one Humphries totally whiffed on a TOLEDO DE. Neither were his fault at all.

    Good:

    Driskel will only get better.
    Better route running by WRs
    Great RB play by Mack Brown
    Defense will be elite: only used four DL to pressure/contain QB and play great coverage D

    Bad:

    Penalties
    Kicking
    Coaches not calling big passing explosive plays: Driskel is capable.

    GatorAzz attacked me when I pointed out that Roberson is not a good CB: he is decent, but I would start Hargreaves in his place.

    Like I pointed out in the game thread, Roberson is not bad. He just half-asses it when the game isn't on the line.

    As I said in another thread... Roberson was going up against their #1 WR and almost never had safety help. The few times I saw VH3 he had help over the top... so yeah, Roberson was being picked on because he had a much tougher job, and that was by design.

    If you watch Roberson
    He spends to much time looking in the backfield instead of the Rec.'s
    I still think our CB's play to far off the Rec.'s

    Good:

    - Driskel's arm accuracy/strength
    - Mack Brown (he looked huge, and ran with good vision)
    - Valdez Showers -- more of him, please
    - Defense
    - RoPo looked pretty dynamic out there
    - Michael Taylor looked good
    - Hargreaves/Taylor looked good

    Bad

    - Penalties. Don't see those being an issue this year, though.
    - Second half play-calling
    - Dropped passes

    Ugly

    - Humphies letting a guy right past him, leading to the fumble

    VH3 was man to man in an underneath route on the pick. On the play towards the end roberson had safety help when the wr had 5 yds of separation dowfield but dropped the ball. No excuses for a first round draft pick. You lock your side of the field down.

    Roberson is good, Hargreaves is better.

    Honestly, I like jones, but I don't recall jones ever running in the first half like Mack did today. Yes, we had Gilly, but where on earth is there any evidence that Jones is so better? He likely is, but performance wise, Brown had a great game, and I really can't remember any "great" jones games. He has always been a back up.
