I saw this argument posted elsewhere and thought it would make a fitting final sunshine pump for the 2010 season. If you have any interest at all in finding a reason to be hopeful going into to tomorrow's game, keep reading.
Ask your self this: Why is our schedule weird this year? It's because the UT game was moved, thus splitting our non-conference pillow-fight games between the beginning and end of our season. Now ask yourself what did a normal season looked like for the last decade? The answer: 4 non-con patsies to start the season 4 and 0, or 4 and 1. Normally we win those easy games, and we have this year as well. had the season started like it has most years with SMU, Houston, Weber State, and NM to start, we would have started conference play 4-0, and been 5-3 up to this point. Sure we would still be pissed about the bad loss to Iowa State, but we are pissed about the bad conference lost every year. This is why this year feels worse! We are used to having 5 wins by now. But thats a function of the schedule, not anything else. If we were 5-3 there would be no panic. So count Weber St and Houston wins, understand that we are 5-3, and if we pull it together late as a team learning usually does, we can still make a season and a decent bowl.
Of course this all goes off a cliff if we lose two or three more times, but today, Friday before the CU game.......there is in fact a logical reason for hope.
Good luck Seniors, go do what Kingsbury, Harrell, Crabtree, and others could never do.........go beat the Buffs at home.
