It sucked. 

I was 12.  We would always have our neighborhood football game on Saturdays after the games.  Nobody went outside that day.  The entire neighborhood was strangely quiet... like the entire 2nd half of that game.

Can't.

Wait.

This is my issue in a nutshell.  I get it that the kid had several chances and still blew it.  

But seriously.  PED, schmee-ED.

I don't even know why they call ecstasy a PED.  Imagine a running back taking that stuff before a game, and getting gang tackled on the first play. He'd probably try to talk the entire pile into hanging out after the game.  How does that enhance performance?

Hodge, I wouldn't say they out-gutted us.  We were clearly the better team as we breezed (mostly) through the same conference schedule that they ultimately finished with only three wins.

What I would say is they WANTED this game as much as we did.  They sucked last year.  Bad.  They suck this year.  Just as bad.

Clearly we were better man for man.  I know it's cliche, but seasons, records, stats, talent... they don't add up to anything during these games.  The team that WANTS this game more will win.

We tried that once, it didn't go so well...

We also tried a halfback pass with Jalin once...

just because something doesn't go well, doesn't mean you never try it again.

clearly a style... his form looks nothing like the prototypical punter.

heh.  yep.

kinda why I'd like to see them give him another shot at it one of these days.

As an old fart who remembers the Cooper years like they were yesterday, I can tell you that Spiels is 100% correct.

This scUM team will play like they're the number one team in the nation.  This game has nothing to do with hoke.  Has everything to do with a great rivalry... payback... and pride.  

I just finished watching the 2006 and 2002 games.  I am currently watching the 2013 game.

The one thing I noticed is, in all of these games, we tended to turn the ball over a lot.  

We have to play with intensity.  We have to play like it's the last game of the season.

Anyone who is overconfident this week is young and foolish.  Just my opinion.
