Holy *&^% that BSU game last night was INTENSE.
Good news: We won, we retain our magic for pulling wins out of our asses (seriously, ask Oklahoma, SJSU twice, BYU, Tulsa, and a few others), we retain our near-perfect home record, ESPN record, and WAC record. We give our offense some confidence. And our team a new sense of urgency, humble pie, and reason to keep working.
Bad news: Our defense. We were previously ranked 3, though that was inflated from the lack of competition we've played. But this was still the strength of our team. Really. I promise. It didn't look like it last night. At all.
I was y'all could go to a game like this at Bronco Stadium. I mean, granted it's peanuts compared to most big time college games, we only have a 31,000 capacity - but that was the single loudest game I've been to in my life. And I've been to some big games. It's been said that we have one of the louder stadiums in the country, and last night was f-ing insane. Best game I've ever been to, as unnecessarily close as it was.
