These Cards will not play a perfect game this season, and this one was no exception. Inconsistent offense. More dropped passes. Froman went hot, then Froman went cold. The defense seemed to wilt late. Too many penalties. There's going to be plenty to dissect this week in terms of player performance, coaching performance, even fan performance (what the hell with all the empty seats?).
However, now is a time to take pause and acknowledge that Charlie Strong has gained his first career win (and that Doug Beaumont finally scored that first touchdown!). It may not seem it now -- an uneven win against a less talented team (I think) -- but today is the start of something special. It's an odd thing to get a gatorade bath for beating Eastern Kentucky, but it can be said that Strong earned every last drop. Victory number one. More to follow. Congrats Coach Strong!
