Did you see the way they came out of the tunnel? All that year they came out as a group, jumping up and down, with Miles trying to hold them back and speak to them. 1/09 they drifted out listlessly in groups of 2 or 3. It fits with the rumors of a locker room blowup. It doesn't prove anything, but it fits.
Yeah I get that.
I thought people were just talking about the gameplan/JJ/Lee situation.
Yeah the walk out did seem off, but I actually saw that as more of an indication that the layoff just took our mojo from us.
We built up momentum all season with the greatest year in school history, then get stuck with a deflating Rematch and have to sit for over a month before playing again.
The magic was just kind of lost unfortunately.
We've seen us take that break before bowl games and completely flip the switch on disappointing seasons to explode in bowl games.
But it's a whole different challenge to keep that lightning in a bottle going while sitting for a month. Especially when you're waiting to play a team you've already beaten and felt kind of cheated you had to play again.
I bet that entire month just sucked for everyone in the program.
