Although I did my fair share of screaming at the TV during the game, in the process scaring my dog so much she probably won't go near me for days, I feel much better after this loss than I have in the past. Last year I was absolutely crushed when we lost to Kansas. I ended up lying in my bed sleepless for hours. And two years ago when we lost to Kentucky I am not shy to admit I cried. Sure, I was 12 at the time, but still it was tough on me. Maybe it's because of the fact we have less talent on this team, and we will retain most of our stars. Anyway, I've vented enough for the night. Can't wait for August 31st.
