Turning Point?

Is the fourth quarter last night going to be what we look at as the turnaround point at the end of the season? We will be favored in the next seven games and justiably so. Last night could have been a total catastrophy. 3-1 right now is a hell of a lot better feeling than 2-2 would be.

It appeared to me that some of the upperclassmen really took on their leadership roles late in the third quarter. You saw players like Chinedum Enduke going for the strip on runs, something you did not see the entire first half. Also Brady Quinn and Jeff Samardzija. Both seemed very out of it in the first half when things didn't go their way. On the second scoring drive of the first half things seemed to kind start to take a look on offense.

Whatever the case, I honestly feel that last night was a season saver. The team showed what they are capable of and what they should be doing week in and week out. Now they just have to go out and do it on a consistent basis which I feel shouldn't be an issue any longer.
