CBS seems to think a bit more highly of us than ESPN does... we're the 6th worst school per CBS, with Ohio, Navy, UNLV, UConn and Rice all ranking worse (5-1 in order).

Bell had a comment yesterday that Lytle is still out but getting close. He also said Lytle was clearly the best QB in camp. I have to imagine if he is ready to go, he starts against Toledo. I think saving Olson's redshirt is a priority unless Lytle plays and shows he doesn't have it.

I think that situation still makes sense. As much as I want Olson to take the reigns, if we can get another year out of him that's likely to the benefit of the program long term.

Here are the post game quotes where both Bell and Merriweather make comments on Olson. Did see similar comments on Lytle.

When Lytle was given more that 2 seconds at Pitt and the receivers actually caught the ball he made some good throws. If he was the man in camp you have to see what he has.

Just because a guy starts the first game of the year, doesn’t necessarily mean he is the best guy..Many moving parts…

"I think he's going to be out for a little while longer. Hopefully, we can get him back soon knowing that he won the job in camp pretty handily."
Thats what Bell said this week. Olson has a very bright future but it sounds like Bell thinks Lytle is the better QB right now. Kid deserves a shot to see what he has. Olson has been better than expected but has still missed a bunch of throws. Unless Olson goes out and throws 4 TDs to beat Coastal :D

Hey guys, I'm considering coming down for some of the football game before hockey. Do they sell GA tickets at McGuirk? I haven't been down near the stadium in a few years. It seems like the parking situation is a total mess/ripoff now. Do we even get enough people to justify $30 for parking? I'm not above parking near Mullins and walking or taking the campus shuttle

I believe the last time GSU fired their coach and hired this guy was after we beat them a few years back. They don't fool around with their coaches!

USA Today poll is out and UMass didn't fall in to last place thanks to the Con's narrow loss! Battle For The Bottom coming in two weeks, unless UConn beats a really bad Vandy team this weekend.
