    Live Presser ........Loss is on ME!

    I having a live presser in my media room starting at 5:00 pm. I have invited my family, friends and local paper. Heck, maybe i'll even stream live. This loss is squarely on ME. I made a game time decision and switched up my game day gear. We were on a two game winning streak and I decided to mix up lids for a change of pace. I prepped as usual, same pants/shorts, same sandals, same shirt....that damm hat! I'll go back to original combo next week to see if that truly is the difference or if I need to hold a hat burning ceromony in my fire pit. We also need to make John Cooper an honary coach for a day. We have had the "curse of the Coop" since we made the collosal mistake of hiring Donnie Duncan instead of him after Earl Bruce left. One good season since that time and even then we only beat who we should (sure you can say five bowls, but we really have only had one truly good season) and I give the millenial change credit for that. Here's to YK3. Throw the ball, catch the ball, win the game. It's as simple as that. Oh yeah and don't mess with your game day apparel on a streak!

    I too let the team down. I tossed my football in the air poorly before the snap on Arnaud's 1-hoppers. He had no chance at a completion. Yes, I am convinced I control the offense with a football I tailgated with at the 02 NU game.

    Chizil-Dick said it best:

    We have a small margin for error. Last minute clothing changes can really change the MOJO for game. Let's not let this happen again.

    Re: Live Presser ........Loss is on ME!

    It's on you and my buddy. There was a group of 8 of us at the game. Four of them decided to leave when KSu got the ball their last time thinking it was over. We were so excited that they missed the ending that he sent a Text that read "OT." Approximately a minute later the trajedy struck.

    Nope, it's all on me. I've used the same tattered old "Cardinal and Gold" koozie for every game for about 7 years. I accidentally left it in Ames over the weekend. You can blame me for the loss.
