  1. ive never felt like throwing up as much as i did when the jacks blew their 4 td lead today. too much prevent defense and being too conservative on offense. but im still proud to be a jack fan.

  2. Montana will likely be the FCS champion this year. SDSU’s program has come a long way in a short time.

    Looking for more exciting things to come. A lot of encouraging signs for next year, except their date with FBS Nebraska.

    The Jackrabbits, getting into the playoffs the first year of their eligibility has a lot fans, sports writers, and other schools, taking notice.

  3. I wish I could share your optimism, but right now I’m still numb from watching the most egregious choke job I’ve ever seen.

    You cannot close the offensive playbook and start playing prevent defense in the middle of the third quarter. That’s way, way too early — especially when you’re playing the top team in the country.

    I could not for the life of me understand why, once it looked like a comeback had started, the Jacks didn’t bring in an extra d-back or two and start playing tighter to the Grizzlies’ wide receivers. I also could not understand why the Jacks’ offensive coaches continued to call runs up the middle when one or two first downs in the late third quarter or early fourth quarter could have halted the comeback. Furthermore, I could not understand why the Jacks did not call a time out to regroup and break the Grizzlies’ momentum while the comeback was in progress.

    I know it’s all hindsight, and I suppose I’m just being bitter. But it was really painful to watch — especially since it went down in almost exactly the same fashion as the Jackrabbit women’s basketball team’s last-minute loss to Baylor in last year’s national tournament. In both cases, the Jacks held a lead for almost the entire game and teased their fans into thinking they were going to pull off the upset. I can’t think of a worse way to lose.

  4. In other news … how about those Vikings!

    If they end up shooting themselves in the foot again and blowing their chance for a Super Bowl win, I might stop watching sports entirely.
