James Robert Willis: A win is a win.

Joyce Elaine Pleasant Edens: Not a pretty win but we will take it.

Larry Gamble: You can’t keep winning like this it will catch up with you with better teams coming up…….

Jonathan Johnson: I knew they would sleep walk through this one but a win is a win go big blue!!!!

Joseph Wolf: Good grief. That was ugly.

Tony Bbn Martin: Not a pretty win but I’ll take it 4-1.

Gary VanDeusen: Good game, but when you have the lead, you still have to try and score. That’s what beat us against Florida.

Willie Lee Puckett Jr.: Keep leaving opposition receivers open and keep making stupid defensive plays and you will be able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!

Brandon Bowling: It was a lot closer than I like but like coach Stoops said a win is a win and it isn’t always going to be pretty. Go Big Blue 🏈.

Jeremy Burkeen: Conrad and Bowden. They need to be included in the plays. Terrible play calls. I wouldn’t doubt Mizzou steamrolls us

Patty Fielder Barton: Defense played great. Do NOT understand offensive play calling. Should never have been this close. Pass defense needs work!

Larry Hack: Still do NOT like some of the conservative play calling…and for goodness sake, coach will you please throw the ball to the tight end!!!Defense can’t keep bailing the lack of offense out!!

Jonathan Tapp: Play Conrad more that kid is a beast use him !! Use all the weapons we have play aggressive till the end!!

Josh Tinnell: 4-1 all that matters right now.

Gary Smith: Sadly they’re going to have to start playing SEC teams and it could end up being a LONG season.

Kyle Hendrick Caldwell: Need to finished the game better stop with the players open all the time and the damn flags on use.

Jennifer Harris Mitchell: We need continuous practice.

Faye Brown Leach: Close, but a win.
