    I have never been a big Eli guy. But I’m in now. This is my official declaration

    Man I just think this is so awesome for Eli. I’m just happy for the kid. After two rough years and his coach leaving, he could have decided to leave the team and it would have been totally justified. Now he gets an opportunity for a huge role to be the difference for this team - and he’s killing it on opening night. We are extremely lucky to have him.

    Friendship with X ended, Eli is my new friend now

    Incredibly savvy move by Coach Howard to intentionally let App State go on a 29-3 run to ensure this team doesn’t get too high on themselves and to keep them focused before Creighton next week. I for one applaud it.

    Was just going through this thread and saw lots of panic and “ it’s going to be a long year”. Let’s all not forget they were up 30 at one point.

    They didn’t score for almost ten minutes and must have had 8 turnovers in that stretch ( maybe more) shot 1-6 from the line as well, yet still won by 8. I’m not trying to polish a turd here but if you told me the above I would have said we lost by ten minimum.

    There will be some growing pains and ugly moments but I think there is talent clearly. I’m not expecting z to have too many games like this. I think eli, johns, and Colin will all contribute and come through. Once Franz gets back and if he can shoot well after the injury and ges in the swing of things I think we will be pleasantly surprised.
