Sooooo, that went well. Thank you #94, PK extrordinaire.
People speak frequently of moral victories (i.e. OT loss to Tennessee on the road for the Pack), but never of moral defeats. As Mr. Man mentioned, there is no upside to playing a good I-AA school. I patently refuse to recognize FCS/BCS because I think the BCS sucks.) However, when you win by one point in overtime, against Cal Poly SLO, because their kicker missed 3 PATs and a potential game winning FG, is this really something to be throwing your helmet off in celebreation for (a la Kemp)? Nobody likes to lose on Senior Day, but come on.
Once again the blame falls on the coaches. Even without Valai and Goins, the coaches should have been able to make adjustments to get some stops. Also, why was there nobody back to return that last FG attempt when they knew that the kicker was a shanker. There is no way anybody touches Gilreath if he fields that ball.
Hooray for the Akron Store Brand Chips Bowl on December 13.
