We fell for the Cotton Bowl hype and when we lost to Memphis (some on that roster were just nowhere near ready for that kind of game -- on defense and of course ST), I think we kind of tanked subconsciously after that. Now, having said that, no one apparently beats Navy on senior day so I can sort of be "ok" with that loss and we weren't going to lose on our senior day (although Tulane helped hand that win to us). Losing Reggie of course was a killer. But the bowl game? Downright inexcusable. This team needs a little more of a just win attitude, doesn't matter who/when you're playing. Play the same way all the time: to completely obliterate the other team. We need that mindset. Have never had it in my 30 years following this program. Memphis has it. Houston used to have it and will probably have it again next year. Have to find a way to get that in the DNA of the program. Be nice all other days, be an outright DOG on game days. Every position, every player. Nonstop.

But no matter who is on the schedule, 10 wins can't be called a "downward trend." The schedule wasn't a killer, but we have had bad schedules before and won less than half, sometimes a lot less.
This season was a lot of fun to watch. Here's hoping for an even better season next year.

Chad was right. Hell we don’t even need a quarter tank of gas we just need an portal login to communicate with DFW’s disgruntled.
