I’ll have a more in depth look at the Tech game later this week. I have followed PWD’s advice and am currently trying to put together my thoughts in a way that doesn’t involve invectives and three dollar words. And typed slurring.
However, Corey Irvin’s quote:
“We lost our edge in the second half,” senior defensive tackle Corvey Irvin said. “In the first half, we were all over the field having fun and I guess we kind of lost our composure. I guess we thought we had the game wrapped up in our pocket but we really didn’t.”
sums up the whole season in a nutshell. Great play followed by a lack of focus that leads to missed opportunites and big time screw ups. Actually, this is a theme the past 36 or so games (since the start of 2006, save a few great games last year), so it is hard to say it is just this season.
I hate this for the seniors, especially Mo Mass. He absolutely laid it all out, making awesome catches and doing all that he could to make this a win. Staff, save one pass that was totally inexplicable, did a good job of game managment and showed why he could be a top 10 draft pick if he decides to leave.
For now, I’ll sign off for the long drive north.
