Winners: Stillwater Medical accounts receivable (x-rays are expensive), JW Walsh, the potential of #Walsh2Stewart, hype for OSU-Texas, Fox Sports Southwest viewers (unintentional comedy was high), redheads (the sun never shone), nearly deaf people (speakers on GIA at 100,000 decibals), and Todd Monken (you could put a neanderthal behind center and he’d hang fiddy on anybody in the country (except Arizona)).
Losers: Wes Lunt fans (OSU folks have only seen him take 26 snaps at home…), tailgaters, Gundy’s haircut, Shaun Lewis (0 tackles?), Robert Allen (he cried on the sidelines when Hedgepeth got injured?), and Louisiana’s Sun Belt title chances (they’ve got multiple squads that are rolling through the SEC, I saw none of that from them yesterday).
Best play: The first Walsh to Stewart TD was pretty special. Video below…
Worst play: Yeah…duh.
Best player: Daytawion Lowe isn’t getting any credit and he was awesome (4 tackles | 1 TFL | 1 sack) but I gotta go Walsh — he was everything you want a back QB with a chip on his shoulder to be, and for a running QB he had quite a game in the air1. Also, Kye Staley played really well.
Worst player: I didn’t feel like Jeremy Smith played his best game. Only averaged 5 yards per carry with no touchdowns and never really made you feel like he was going to bust one.
“God, why?!” moment: Well…this.
Uniform Heisman: Shaun Lewis — I liked the white cleats and the neck/head pad thingy. He always looks sharp. The black-orange-orange grew on me as the game went on too. Our old orange-orange combo was just horrendous but this one wasn’t too bad because of the white/black accent and the sick black helmet. B- overall.

Other quote: “Walsh was ready and even though he is a freshman, he ran the offense like a pro. He had a great game.” – Mark Hudspeth (Louisiana coach)

U mad bro?! photo of the game: Here.
- Zac Robinson only had five career 300+ yard passing games. Walsh already has one in two appearances (zero starts). ↩
