I know, I know; I am putting my paperbag down too just to write this. This was a tough one and I feel a lot like I did that night in December when Major was bringing us back against Colorado for a trip to Pasadena. We just ran out of time. And we did tonite again.
We lost...they won. They did a lot of things right and we didn't do enough of the small things right. Colt came back and led the offense down the field to score. I thought we had it but was very concerned with 1 1/2 minutes remaining. My worries were warranted. Its not about the poor tackling at the end or Blake not cathing that easy pick or the dropped passes or the sacks/hurries/knockdowns or losing Osackpo or Cosby.....it was all of it. It really was. We didnt play as good as we could have.
I thought last week we were a little exposed on some things but this is what happens in a tough conference like this. This 4 game stretch is over and we could still very well lose again if we dont fix the little things...the fundamentals. However, we could still win the Big XII South but we need two losses by Tech...which I think could very well happen gang. I am now the biggest Oklahoma State and Oklahoma fan that ever lived because we need those guys to come through for us in a MAJOR way!
Lets regroup here and come back firing on all cylinders. as I wipe my tears and my wife talks me off the edge (of my bed) I realize that I am proud of the guys. They plyaed for it till the end. The coaches never stopped coaching. Colt and the offense did their job when they needed too. The defense played hard. Tech just beat us. There's nothing more to say.
Get ready for Baylor. Semper Fidelis and Hook 'Em.
