    Just think...

    How close we were to 3 straight bowls. I was in the shower this morning and couldn't help but think, what if we convert the fake PAT against nebby, what if we don't have that awful game against CU. It's amazing to think about how after chiz's 5 wins in 2 years, CPR was 2 yards away from 3 straight bowls.

    It hurts me to think about it... Don't forget the last game last year also against Missouri. I wish AA could have been playing...

    I know it, it wasn't really meant to salt any wounds, just pretty crazy to think about considering where we were and where we are.

    Re: Just think...

    Yeah I was at that Nebraska game... most heart breaking game I've ever attended. Then we just **** the bed against Colorado.. Sadly I wasn't expecting Tiller to move the ball much against Mizzou anyways and I was also pretty sure our D wouldn't get 8 turnovers to save his *** again.

    We also shouldn't have four loses this year either(so far).

    But hey the team is getting better and better every year and thats all that matters.

    I think we just needed the frustration of years past to make a monumental upset like this happen in year 3 for CPR. Last year's outcome hurt a lot but that makes this year's upset(SSS) even better.

    I completely agree. Its all very cool. Hopefully this season's triumphs will help me, and everyone else, forget a couple nightmarish scenes from last year. There have been a few moments from this year that I will never forget.

    Im not sure the part about being in the shower was necessary to make your point.

    Yeah you're probably right. That just happens to be where most of my thinking takes place.

    Ugh. I was at both of those games. Talk about kick in the nuts two weeks in a row. Actually felt good after the Nebraska game (almost knocked off a team that was supposed to be better than us, CPR made a ballsy call in OT), then felt like absolute dog **** after the CO game (poor play overall, team didn't show up to the game, AA hurt).

    Would have been nice to get to a bowl last year. Things are much better now, in a season that was perceived to be even tougher.

    Don't forget about losing again to a rather average KSU team in Arrowhead. NU, KSU, CU, and MU. Win any of the four and we are 3-3 in the CPR era.
