I just hope Day and the team don't use that score as their main motivating factor. Their main focus should be realizing they're one of the best programs in the country already, and that when they play their best, nobody can beat them. That's usually enough. If you want to argue that some motivation can give you a little bump, that's fine. But the best people at what they do are self-motivators already. They dont need failure to get them over the hump. They learn and get better. Motivation is mostly a facade. Ask TTUN how well motivation to beat us has worked for them lately....

In regards to compliance.... LSU is also "dealing" with a case in which a booster got caught funneling money through a charity to pay recruit's families. That is a federal crime and the booster is locked up. But the national media didnt say jack shit about it all season long. They were too busy reporting that the best defensive player in the country paid back money that he borrowed from a friend. Which is not a crime at all.

And an astronomical set of events happened that caused that momentum. And yet Day STILL had this team in position to win at the end before the final "once in a million" event happened to end the game. The shifting of momentum wasnt on Day's shoulders. In fact, he overcame the shit storm that was put in front of him in my book. He's going to be incredible. It's also why he was so tortured afterwards that we lost. He knew we were the better team and did all he could do.

Right on. With great expectation comes great success, and sometimes great heartache. It's what we all signed up for. But I'll keep signing up for it until I die knowing losses like the last game are a possibility, but also knowing that those opportunities are even there to begin with. Because unparalleled success for the better part of 80+ years don't lie. Proud as hell to be an Ohioan.

"Teams succeeded and failed on their own merits; affiliations mattered little or not at all." How I long for the days when this was still the case with the talking heads and outsiders. It's actually how I still view ours and other programs now. Great programs are able to operate successfully, independent of their conference brethren.
