Feel free to join me on the Carson Coffman bandwagon. It's pretty roomy, and I've been driving it all by myself for the past six weeks. Nevermind that the wheels are old and clearly second-class, this wagon is a fighter, and it rides smart.
I'm pretty sure this is what Snyder was hoping the NU game would look like. Not the score, necessarily, but I think he was hoping to dominate early and force NU to make mistakes. If you'll notice, we had very similar 1st quarter game plans. I think things might have been different last week if we had taken the points instead of going for it. Not that we would have won, but I think it would have been closer. Coach has a good record when he scores first. (I'm not bothering to look it up, but I heard an announcer say it and it sounded good).
Seriously, though, join me on this bandwagon, it's been pretty lonely up here. :-)
