Mike Larry: Omg my heart was literally beating out my chest goodness. My cats are gone be the death of me whewww
Jan McReynolds Cahill: Not pretty but a win is a win. Hopefully our defense can regroup on the bye
Jarrod Dople: Good to see them find a way to win but it was a scary win
Jaycob Frye We played a hell of a game tonight. The secondary needs to play little bit better. But gave some deep plays on defense. But we were due to have a bad defense game and we did have it and it out of the way. But it’s okay cause everyone is going to have that.
Steve Morgan: The rest of the season could see a lot of L unless the offensive line can protect the QB and open up holes for Snell. Also, the safeties continue to get beat on the deep pass. I’m glad #99 is on our team! Go CATS!
Mike Clark: It’s amazing this team is 5-1 they are going to have to step it up the rest of the year is going to be a little harder
Wayne N Anita Gravitt: Has to be the worst defensive game this season, and against the worse team in our conference.
