okay, it's been long enough that I've calmed down enough to be somewhat coherent.
It seems we're good for at least one completely gutting loss a year. Usually comes against Texas Tech or Texas. This one, for me, is worse than any of those were.
I might seriously consider trading the Stokely miracle if it meant our safety not completely blowing their coverage in the last minute. Or Suh inexplicably waiting to rush on Tyrod on the TD play. Or the offense not committing 5 penalties that turn a 1st and goal on the 2 into a punt. Or...argh. Just a terrible ****ing loss.
If we do one of a dozen little mistakes differently we're talking about what a big step our defense took. About how Lee, despite being off on several passes, looked like a dangerous QB, especially when scrambling. About Henery showing why he's one of the top kickers in the nation. About how Helu is probably the best running back at this school since Ahman Green.
Congrats, Garcia. Your team knows how to deliver down the stretch. Nothing but respect for Beamer and his program. Go beat Miami, and hopefully we can rebound and have a strong conference showing of our own.
