yea.. but Oklahoma and USC aren't trying to make a name for themselves, build a normally apathetic fan base, etc. For us, these loses have been killers.....

Sure I would have taken 6-2. Anyone being honest with themselves would have, too.

This is a team with a new staff, new schemes, lot of guys playing their first year at new positions. The O-line finally looks like the o-line most of us expected. 2 of our top 3 WRs are basically in their 1st years. Our starting center was a walk on linebacker last year. We still need a lot of upgrades on this roster...

The sky is not falling. Sucks. But many of us expected these kinds of games after watching practice this spring and summer (I predicted we'd start 4-3 on the way to a 7-5 season cause the O-line looked dreadful every practice I watched - so what am I complaining about, right?). Thought I was way wrong for a month and a half. Was pleased as punch to be wrong, too. Growing pains reared their ugly head. I' d almost forgot that was an option.

I am with you on expecting to win this game, and my anger during and right after the game was enough to anger the neighbors. But you have to take a step back. Did the future of this program depend on winning this game? No. So why continue to have the attitude like this is somehow the death knell for the season? There are 4 games to be played, and barring the total collapse of this team that some are predicting, UC is headed for a bowl game, and the 15 extra practices that come with it, something that can't be overlooked in terms of importance right now. 6-2 heading into the bye week is damn good for anyone.
