Is it safe to assume AQM is not coming to ND since Miami is listed as the team to beat?
Alquadin Muhammad with a good speed, jab step inside move to get an edge, but three step drop didn't give time to get there.

John Montelus trots onto the field at left guard. Has been banged up this week with left shoulder.

Montelus gets in there and starts banging right away though -- not taking it easy today.
I hope not unless he is contributing on D as well and I don't mean the way Williams was used as a FR on D.
Bryant being used as the back on passing downs with two good blocks already and a potential third coming up on this 3rd and 7 -- good pass protection ability, which is a trait that's usually further down on the list as running backs make the transition to the college level.
Joe Mathis commits to Washington.
Bryant trying to get loose in the screen game -- good play call by coaches after having him in to block on passes -- but Tahaan Goodman sniffs it out for a loss of one yard.
Elmer with the quick jump on the end to set an edge, but QB Hayden Rettig decides to try to spring left.
Robinson makes move on the line for a go route, but overthrown -- had just enough separation with the right ball to make the play.

Vanderdoes with a quick edge rush on Montelus (who is now at RG and was looking inside after quick jab to EV to send to RT) to come up with a sack. Jeremy Johnson had time to make a play, however.

Smith in on the pressure to cause QB Jeremy Johnson to go back in the pocket.
Bryant, who has become the third-down back in most situations, able to block Smith on the edge to give Johnson time to run around the right side, but not enough for the first down.
Muhammad forced and recovered a fumble against Tyrone Swoopes on the pressure.
Tony Stevens commits to Texas A&M.
another that is 35 how does A &M have 35 commits
Seeing most of these committs play for the first time and very impressed with a few of them. The obvious is just how quick/explosive and active Jaylon is. Although, is it me, or does he appear undersized? I know it is not uncommon since he is after all still a kid, but in regards to playing LB as a freshman? It just doesn't seem like he will step in and play at that size. Kid will be special.
AQM is also surprisingly quick. I went from not really caring if he didn't qualify to wishing he would've.
West with a blocked field goal to end the first half.
East still up 7-0.
Do you know if Jaylon Smith is playing? I'm at the game but haven't seen him yet.
yes he is west team (yellow jersey wearing #9) I am watching game at home
