Just in case you turned off the game after the “game ending INT “…
We managed to get the ball back with :24 on our own 6 and move it to the UH 6 with one play into the end zone that grazed off Luke’s fingertips (well defended)

Heck of an effort all night

I turned it off after the play-by-play guy said the running into the kicker penalty was the ballgame. Except it was 4th and 6 after the delay of game penalty, not 4th and 1 and the 5 yard penalty doesn't come with an automatic 1st down. Dana declined the penalty, Owls' ball with 24 seconds to play on their own 6.

That's what I get for listening to ESPN not-so-plus play-by-play. They should have just let Taylor do the game by himself.

I did go back on watch what I missed On Demand. I do like that feature of ESPN+.

It was a heck of a never give up effort by the Owls.

So, for the preseason...

2 wins
1 close, competitive loss
1 blowout loss

Seems better than usual.

A game and a half ahead of my expectations.

The "usual" for the Owls is a pretty low bar.

Going into year 5, I would have hoped the bar would have already been raised significantly. Better late than never, I guess.

The usual bar for preseason, IMO, is either 1-3 or 0-4, with a couple of blowout losses.

Agree with your last paragraph.

For me, the jury is still out on Bloom. It was in, with a guilty verdict, but the last three games have sent it back out.
