OFFENSE: We like what we've seen of the Spread HD so far. And we suspect there is more to come.
DEFENSE: Took care of business when it had to despite being short a couple of starters.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Didn't get off to a good start. But picked it up after Kevin Kelly shanked the opening kickoff out of bounds.
COACHING: Kept the team together and focused in the middle of a week full of distractions.
INTANGIBLES: Kudos to the players, too, for staying on task.
OTHER GUY: Obviously not remotely close to the outfit that did some serious damage in the Pac-10 in 2007.
OFFICIALS: Always a good sign when the zebras don't stick out.
CROWD: The house was rocking before the game. Crowd stayed in it even when things got out of hand.
