    One Year Ago Today...

    One year ago today, we shocked the entire nation. We upset the nationally ranked #2 team, and ruined their national title hopes. With that win, we became bowl eligible for the second time in three years.

    Since that game, it has no doubt been a rocky road. We just now think that we have finally found a starting quarterback. There have been talks of firing Coach Messingham after one year, and from a very select few, talk of firing Rhoads. A year ago, tomorrow morning, everyone knew that Rhoads was the right man for the job. Rhoads is the epitome of the passion, loyalty, and dedication to and for the program and school.

    One year ago today, we learned how, "passion has a funny way of trumping logic," and how, in football, "the results don't always add up." That means that anything can happen on any given day, and more often than not, our passion and dedication can trump any team, no matter how strong they look on paper.

    Re: One Year Ago Today...

    How will it be topped?

    11/18/10 I retired on my 55th birthday. Party, lunch, left with a big-*** smile a mile wide.
    11/18/11 Another big birthday surprise with the win over OSU; I smiled the whole weekend wearing the Cardinal and Gold.
    11/18/12 How are we going to top the last two?


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: One Year Ago Today...

    And one year ago, I thought we found our future Quarterback, only to go wth at the Pinstripe Bowl. This time I hope Super Sammy is the real deal.
