Palardy has been a beast and George Cafego would be proud. What a difference a coach makes. I'm glad CBJ takes the kicking game seriously. It has been forgotten for many years.

Agree with Psycho, at the end of last year- I would have never thought that Palardy and Special Teams would be a strong suit. DB's are looking stronger than I had imagined as well. If Worley keeps dialing in the receivers, we actually have a shot at six and a bowl. With the recruiting class that's scheduled to come in, we should be competitive next year.

Palardy has been a pleasure to watch this year. Performing the way we all expected when he was recruited. Wish he had 3 more years.

kicking game is spot on as said. i remember us marching down the field, scoring, only to give up 40-50 yard returns on the kickoff. 3 wins are a tough row to hoe, but if they play Georgia inspired football, we'll be fine. Auburn, KY and Vandy being the most winnable.

Don't forget Mizzou lost their QB Franklin for the season yesterday... If we keep getting better as we have each week, we can win four more games!

No timetable on the return of Franklin
