Eating crow

Hmm... I guess there is no easy way to do this. Time to sit down and eat an extra large helping of my least favorite dish:

We played decently, but you've got to credit the U's D. We got stung with a -6 turnover margin, and it's pretty much impossible to win if you do that. Some of them were absolute gifts to the U, but some of them were earned by excellent strategy and effort, so you have to give them credit for what they did. Tough to see it because our D played a solid enough game to give our O a chance to win it, but they couldn't seal the deal. Gotta give the devil his due, the U capitalized on our mistakes, and created their own opportunities, and won a convincing W.

Yeah. Not a fan of that.

Still, it was a fun game to watch (until the 4th quarter meltdown, anyway), and an intense place to watch a game. I guess you've got to get it handed to you every now and then so you appreciate the wins, right? But it's hard to be disappointed with a 10-2 season, and I'm looking forward to what I hope will be a respectable bowl match up.

I'm already getting excited for next year's game in Provo. Long live college football.
