This board would have melted down, the internet would have blown up, Leslie's kids would have been kidnapped, Javi Sanchez would have been blamed, and people would have rioted in the streets. The apocalypse of the program would have been predicted, with visions of 4-8 seasons for the rest of eternity. NO body would have been excited to pull out such a win.
I never see these crazy arse predictions except in threads like these.
I wish the Rant would behave more like the jubilant basketball fans than the spoiled football fans when we WIN football games.
All we need to do is have a crappy decade of football except for a couple of years and two poor coaching tenures and we will be there. Won't that be lovely to live through again. I prefer our spoiled fanbase.
ETA: After re reading, I think I mis-understood. I think there is a fine line between bitching about winning too close to an inferior team, and pointing out obvious flaws that need work and will be an issue against a stronger opponent.
The problem is too some people that will always be bitching, and some others just aren't happy unless there is something to bitch about. So with some there never can be a middle ground.
Ironically, in the Mizzou basketball thread I just pointed out that our rebounding disadvantage still worries me a lot. Is that just bithcing? Or is that pointing out the obvious? Because I was told that I just had to find something to bitch about. Sounds like a football thread to me.
And IMO, I think if we were a 4-4 football team and beat a 3-5 MSU team by a FG, everyone would be happy with the win.
