Awesome but Sad - Dream Season

Wow!  This season for me has been a tremendous ride of emotions.  As a season ticket holder and alum of Tech I have waited for a season like this one.  Our team made national headlines on a weekly basis and gained lots of respect among non-believers.  Yes we lost Saturday to Oklahoma but they flat out beat us.  I would rather have had it that way than a marginal loss decided by a last second field goal or touchdown.  I am embarrassed about the performance as I thought Tech would at least be in the game.  I could hear it in Kirk and Brent's voices when they said we look "rattled".  They knew this game was going to be ugly and it was.  I can't articulate what happened nor do I make excuses about how we could have salvaged this game.  Fact is we are 10-1 and will more than likely be 11-1 after the Baylor game.  An almost perfect season that will probaly only yield a Holiday or Cotton Bowl appearance.  That's the awesome but sad dream season wrapped up.  Those two bowls usually host teams with 3 loses.  I guess it's all part of being in the Big 12.  The talent level in this conference is second to none.  For me personally, I do believe Tech is the second best team in the conference and should be invited to a BCS bowl.  A great deal has to happen and we only control one game of that scenario.  I do hope Leach continues to coach here at Tech because he has made us the 3rd most talked about power in the Big 12 under UT and OK.  If we keep on track we will be a contender for years to come.  It's hard to believe that we were #2 in country.  Hats off to the 2008 Red Raider football team.
