Troy - Florida Live Blog: First Quarter

Tonight is ND-Penn. State, SC-UGa, USF-Aub. , and Va. Tech-LSU.

But we don't care because David Steele and Nat Moore just welcomed me to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Update [2007-9-8 18:4:29 by mlmintampa]:6pm: They listed UF's defensive backs as their second most important story line. I guess they didn't see last week. Update [2007-9-8 18:4:29 by mlmintampa]:6:01pm: The 'Go Gators' commercial just played. A tear was shed. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:6:03pm: Troy has 28,000 students, but only 6000 actually in Alabama. Sorry, those outside the state don't count. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:Troy takes the opening kick to the 28. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:Troy has two wides with the Brody Croyle hair cut. Nice. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:12:34 1st: Troy goes 3 and out and Gators block the punt. It wasnt so much as blocked as the second level of blockers were in the punters face. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:11:27: Two flags in UF's first offensive series. And that one brought back a TD. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:10:46: Moore scores over left tackle. 7-0. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:I just paid $35 for this game and I still have to sit through commercials? Show me some sorority chicks. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:10:30: Troy begins second series at their own 26. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:9:58: Troy picks up first first down after screen and run. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:9:11: Two more runs and another first down. No one can fill a hole. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:8:39: Sun just showed a view where you can see how far the guards are away from the center. Like 2 yard splits. Of course Haugabook is still firing unpressured. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:7:55: And Haugabook runs 32 yards for a TD. Wandy Pierre-Louis got faked out of his jock. 7-7. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:I'm watching this game with my Dad and brother. Which explains why we've been watching ND-PSU for the last minute. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:My apologies to Wandy, it was Anderson owned on that last play. Troy kicked the ball out of bounds, but Urban wants a rekick. And Brandon James just took it 64 yards on the return. Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:4:52: Tebow scores on a 4 yard run over Mo Pouncey. 14-7. That was an efficient drive with only one pass to Lou Murphy. However, I keep getting squimish when I see Bubba and Tebow hit hard. And my father is pissed Dixie Crossroads is not in Tampa.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:Penn State just scored on a punt return. And all their white shirts and pompoms are giving me chills.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:3:51: UF calls time when Troy lines up for their second punt. And look at me figuring out html code!

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:3:35: Brandon James returns the punt to the 45. Nat Moore calls him a jitterbug.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:2:57: Bubba drops a sure TD at the five. He heard the footsteps.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:2:46: CI takes it to the 12. First down.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:2:20: Percy catches a 5 yard TD pass. Tebow had so long to throw, I timed it with an hourglass. 21-7. Time to check in at Athens. SC up 7-0.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]:2:13: Troy starts at the 25.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]::34: UF tips the punt again. Ball on Troy 47.

Update [2007-9-8 18:53:30 by mlmintampa]::22: CI is not afraid to go over the middle. He takes it to the 11. And a Moore run to the left ends at the two and ends the half.
