Good Game 2

I kept drunkenly telling everyone in the bar in Connecticut that I was ecstatic Northwestern was even in a bowl, let alone leading going into the 4th quarter.

But I’m not going to lie: I went apeshit when Mizzou missed that field goal, and I was so dissapointed that despite all our effort, we still lost.

But you know what? Our guys put up one hell of a fucking fight, and if a couple breaks had gone the other way, we would have won. The fact that it was that heart-stoppingly close was really encouraging, and with Kafka on QB next year, this team is going to be dangerous.

Go, U Northwestern. We lost, but we didn’t get our asses handed to us: We fought the good fight. And that’s very encouraging for the future.

    I’d like to remind you and the viewers at home that we wouldn’t have been in that position if we’d MADE THAT EXTRA POINT. sigh.

    And we’re losing a LOT of talent this year. Next year is rebuilding. BUt we are all proud of a squad that was supposed to get blown out of the building and kept it close and could have pulled it out.

    Yeah, or if Villareal wasn’t so bad outside of 40 yards that he couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat. I was wondering if Fitz was high when he sent him out to try to kick a 47 yarder.
