Had a great day tailgating and enjoyed at least parts of the game today. Some good chats with some Johnnies and Tommies alike.

Here's my list of takeaways from today:
1. St John's has a heck of a team. The defense put on some big pressure, Erdmann is super solid, Gillach had an incredible day. Hats off to your team as aside from a few big plays, they controlled the day. I would suggest that SJU deserves to be in the top 5, although I don't know that that's how the rankings will shake out, whatever those are worth. I think there are maybe 5 teams in the country that can win a championship and SJU is right there if they can repeat today's performance.
2. Josh Parks has a step or 2 on anyone else on the field. He's fun to watch and those long runs alone almost made me lose my voice. 22 for 256 on a day like today feels really weird, as we consistently played from behind and it didn't feel like we could establish and just sit on the run.
3. This is the downside of having so many big turnovers. Perra did not handle the pressure very well. I felt like he had really made some steps to be a top tier D3 QB, but our offense was not prepared for the strength of the SJU defense. Some big opportunities to learn from this.
4. #81 Grant Slavik is beginning to establish himself as a big TE receiving option.
5. Small thing, but not sure how I feel yet about Dowdle's punting.
6. Failing to come away with points on that 3-minute drive just before half really hurts. That plus the early 3rd quarter TD could have been game changers. Same with the 14 point swing on the fumble, scoop, and score. Painful to watch as a Tommie fan.
7. Hats off and good luck to the Johnnies the rest of the year. I hope you didn't use all your Johnnie Magic up today, maybe just enough that it could run out at a playoff rematch in Collegeville. We've got business to take care of and a lot of lessons to take away from today.

One last item:
Our failure to get home and sack Erdmann early hurt big time. He did a spectacular job of getting rid of the ball early. Clearly the SJU coaching staff knew that Coach K was going to bring the pressure. Our DBs struggled to matchup 1-on-1 and it put us at an early disadvantage in the big ol' chess game.

I thought 81 was a tremendous player-you need to get him the ball more.
D3 football rankings carry no weight-just wait for the NCAA regional rankings.
After his second touchdown catch in a record-setting day, St. John's receiver Will Gillach pointed skyward. That, folks, was for former head coach John Gagilardi. The legendary coach of the Johnnies for 60 seasons and 64 in college overall died Sunday. He was 91. His 489 victories are most in college football history in any division.

I'd love to take in the lowlights. They should put a streaming video code on the $15 gameday tickets so we can go review the video later and find justification to complain about whatever bad calls we want to  ;) ;)
A whole bunch of times today, I found myself looking up after a play for the big video replay board. Woops.

How will the ratings play out? How far will St John's move up? How far will St Thomas fall? We're in the driver's seat now as long as we take care of business & don't look past anyone!
Maybe one place to 7th but no higher. They could stay where they are. Look what those ahead of them did.

I was going to say SJU would jump UWW on my ballot, but I have it in front of me and SJU was already up there. I could see them passing UWW overall, though.

Were you at the game today, Pat?

Negative. We had Frank Rajkowski on-site for us. I had a commitment I could not get out of.

A little embarrassed to admit this but Iím still living in the past and enjoying the win from yesterday. 😃 Will have to move on soon.

The Jays offensive game plan was perfect. UST is known for pressure. Loved the fact we spread em out and gave Erdmann options. And he put throws on a dime and our wide outs made some great plays. I havenít looked at the stats but Erdmann seemed to own 3rd down. In the way SJU abanded the run I have no idea why UST didnít do the same with the pass. Players win games but one coaching staff put their guys in a better position to go out and do it.

And thank god our B1G QB is from the east division.
Woke up with a headache from the night before
Cause sometimes I drink
Spent the night with my head in the toilet bowl
It's where I like to think
I said cause I don't want no one to take a piece of my heart - O.A.R., Hangover

Congrats to the Johnnies. Great game.
All karma is good karma. No karma means you're milquetoast, and that's nothing to be in life.

Congratulations to the Johnnies on a great win.  I know they travel to Moorhead, but the Cobbers don't seem like anything special this year.  Thomas More did beat UWP, but I doubt they could keep up with SJU.  Seems like they have very favorable odds to finish undefeated for the first time since... 2009?

Johnnie fans

No one seems to be posting so far. Bet it was a big night of celebration. You deserved it. Not only did you beat your #1 rival, but you beat the #3 team in the country. Best to you on the rest of the season. But let's not repeat 2003!
Looking forward to hearing from the Johnnie faithful on thoughts about the game. You have to be on top of the world. I'm sure John is with you. Go Johnnies. (Why not, Tommies too). ☠🏈
I'm old! I get mixed up and I forget things! Go Everybody!
