Talk about an intersection of two teams heading in different directions.
Yeah, depressing cause we were all so hopeful after almost coming back to win that game
Hopefully, two sine waves Pi radians out of sync.
I was fully bought in at that point. The recruiting momentum was there too.
Marked the first time in 22 years we had a back to back losing seasons. Sadly, this will be our 5th in a row.
So damn tired of losing.
I mentioned this exact point last night while watching the AL vs LSU game. Mentioned that we had the same records but ended up in very different place.
Last semi-enjoyable season. 6-7 record wasn't great, but it certainly had its moments with wins over OU and putting 65 on Nebraska, and a few other nice ones like the win in Lubbock. I was certainly fooled at the time..
I was still on the fence with the defense. But had no idea 4 years later we would be one of the worst BCS teams
what i remember from that game was emailing a friend that the first Q was one of the worst quarters of Buff football i'd ever seen. little did i know, the ISU choke job of that same year was the reality...
but, i confess, i was a believer at the time to a degree. after Dizon and Wheatley left, the true Hawkins era reared it's ugly head. the fabled "Boise Playbook".
The 2 coaches' response to losses was telling.
Hawk: "You got to keep working on the little things... Can't get too high or too low...Blah, blah, blah."
Saban:"Changes in history usually occur after some kind of catastrophic event," Saban said during the opening remarks of his weekly news conference. "It may be 9-11, which sort of changed the spirit of America relative to catastrophic events. Pearl Harbor kind of got us ready for World War II, or whatever, and that was a catastrophic event." -- after losing to ULM.
Yep, Bama had just lost to Louisiana-Monroe AT HOME and we had just pounded Nebraska. Couldn't be more different programs since then.
gee, thanks Nut! for the pick me up this morning! but, I guess we can realize just how fast things can change (glass half full)?
I do not know why.... but I feel that you predicted that...... maybe every week....
