    Let the real season begin

    Now that we have playing in that **** hole out of the way, we can concentrate on the real season, the race for the north title.

    The first half gave me an upshot in confidence about this season. :)

    Angie, I felt the same way too, only to be brought back to reality during the 2nd...

    It was a downer. I watched most of the 2nd half with my head in my hands. Even then, though, there were some good plays - Bowen had the only pick of the game (surprising that Iowa's "top defense in the nation" wasn't able to trip us up). We didn't fumble anything, and nothing was intercepted. Meyer had wheels - just not quite enough.

    You're right. We know we have some things going for us. We just don't have all of the pieces of the puzzle put together (whatever it be, gameplan, players, coaching, luck). If we can get all of this together we will have a successful season. It was just disappointing to see our team play so well and then let it slip away!!

    Again - you're 100% right. I'm trying to forget the half-a$$ed tackle attempts. Also trying to forget the fact that Blythe only had, what, four catches? We couldn't get through their defense to Tate - was he ever even touched, other than the weird call where the whistle blew??
