- For those that question whether Parker can have a role on this team, he can. He showed it tonight. He won't play starters minutes, but he'll provide a spark, and steady hand when he's in there.
- Petteway had a few moves tonight that were pretty filthy. Kid looks like the real deal.
- Pitchford can shoot it. Not afraid there, thought he did ok down low defensively, but that wasn't nearly the stiff test he'll see later down the line. Offensive weapon for sure, though.
- Rivers. Like that kid. Wish he'd have redshirted his freshman year... Seems to have taken another step forward.
- Smith looked like we're used to seeing kids coming up from JUCO. Swimming a bit. He'll get there. Looked good a couple of times and has the frame to hang with it on the block.
- Didn't see Fuller. What was up with that? Redshirt possibility?
- All the pregame stuff was pretty cool. I thought Tommy Lee was going to be a part of the drum line. Guess not. The DJ thing was a little hokey, but whatevs...
- Loved the whole band coming out and doing their thing.
- Didn't mind the Bon Jovi video, but I'm guessing that is going to be unpopular.
All in all, can't ask for much more than we got. It did, in fact, get pretty loud in there. Thought the fans were pretty good. Great at times. That place can be pretty special if the fans do their role. The more games we have like that, the better.
