But other than all the ugly stuff I thought we did pretty good. I mean, the punting game is coming together brilliantly, and it was a showcase weekend for Wil Baumann, who finally is eligible for the numerous national accolades he surely has earned at this point.

He's not far off No. 1 in the country in average per punt.

So there was the punting and also I would be remiss if I did not mention the fact that I thought the team wore its uniforms quite correctly. Pants on, shoes tied, jerseys facing the right way, chinstraps fastened. Fine work there by everybody involved. Sometimes, though, that's just not enough. Football is an unpredictable game in that way.
