It was a good win, especially to come back in the fourth quarter when all appeared lost. I really don't want to be negative, but seriously, we seem to be treating this like some major turning point. We sucked for almost 3 quarters. The OL was whipped all night and the DL got its usual gashing by a second tier RB for 100yds by half. If I go back and read all the MOD's comments after the Holiday Bowl last year (Ash Grew Up Tonight), you can just change the date and it is the same as these articles. We all know what happened this year when we played anyone any good. All of our preseason strengths turned out to be crap (Remember the great depth at DT, our incredible DBs and our much improved OL under Searles, the great second coming of a true middle linebacker in Edmonds, and of course Ash coming of age). We played a middle of the pack team in a weaker conference and won. But I am really tired of reading the Koolaid. Prove it in Dallas next October. Until then, it is just happy talk. We have the same DC that couldn't figure out what everyone else was seeing all year in how to beat our defense with the run.
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
