So...How Was Your Weekend?
First, I caught some great bass on Friday night. They weren’t really working too well with topwater lures, but the chartreuse dual spinner baits really brought them out near dusk. Saturday was rough after a night of rain, but the crappie came around later in the afternoon. Sunday morning was more good bass action on spinner baits at about dawn, with a couple of spotty crappie from time to time later this morning.
So, how was your weekend?
Man, what a huge win for your program. The way you fought back against one of the MAC’s finest sub .500 programs was indeed astounding. I’m not sure if it was the great outdoors that caused it, but the way you did what Eastern Michigan and Navy couldn’t was indeed breathtaking. As I was watching scores scroll across the bottom of my TV, I told a family member, “When the chips are down and you’re losing to a sub .500 MAC team, look no further than JC Keller. He is money in those situations.”
Oh sure, the 7th most popular team in Indiana came within a bounced pass (off the facemask) from beating you at home. Oh sure, this is a team lost to Miami. (of Ohio), and scored 14 total points...but that Miami defense was salty. (Didn't Ray Lewis play for them). But the way you grabbed that Memorial Stadium magic was indeed something to behold.
I don’t know about you, but I’d sure hate to be the opposing coach that has to go up against a juggernaut program such as Nebraska’s, knowing that you can come back on a dime on ANYBODY. Sure USC is great, but you showed HEART and RESILIENTLY that is very often unmatched in the college game.
I for one have sold you short. Here I thought you would come into Big 12 play at 2 -2 and you have indeed proven me wrong. If I can do anything, I can admit when you all are right, and I am so very very wrong. I apologize for selling you short. I had no idea what kind of intestinal fortitude you would show against such a gutsy and wily opponent.
Unless something changes quickly, I see absolutely no reason the Huskers shouldn’t reach those pre-season expectations, and cruise into San Antonio, with nothing but a scratch come mid December.
Seriously, I couldn’t have written this script up better. Oh sure, Wake could have gotten that PI call at the end of the game, and the Ball State receiver would have actually CAUGHT the winning TD that hit him in the F*CKING FACE….but they didn’t and you’re right where you thought you would be. I’m sure the next few days will open my eyes a bit more to the exact team I said you would be. I’m not sure if I’m more impressed that I actually called this to a T…or that you’re not hanging from a noose right now, instead of sitting at your PC.
Stay tuned to what I’m sure will be a fun-filled week.
PS – I’m not sure what is more funny…those of you who still think you’re going to be OK, or your players, going ape shit over a wide right field goal yesterday afternoon.
Give me time…I’ll figure it out eventually.
