Stomach-punch loss right there. Who'd have thought we'd feel sick about this game because we outplayed them and lost anyway? Bad redzone offense, penalties, and some bad breaks.
I seriously thought we would lose by at least 30, but I can't say I feel great about losing the way we did. We have been doing this for so long now (losing close games to top 10 ranked Texas Tech and Texas teams) that I'm really getting sick of it.
We showed we have the talent and mental toughness to rebound from a blowout at home, but as Bo said afterward, we aren't going to settle for moral victories.
Anyway, we enter a relatively easier section of the schedule. We showed we can be competent on defense, and the offense hopefully found a rhythm. We'll get over the bitter taste of this game and continue to grow. This team showed me something I didn't think they had in them, so I can at least look forward to watching the rest of the season.
