The 2008 season will eventually be defined by how we react to the roots of this disappointment and what it means for 2009. For starters, I suggest we learn to tackle and develop some awesome defensive ends.
No offense, Demarcus Dobbs. You and the other guys doing your best are the man.
If the tech loss leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth, if it affects decisions to go to the NFL, if it recommits everyone to success, it will have served a purpose.
Plus there's no way we lose to tech next year now... right?
The wheel goes round and round. If it comes up winner next year, we’ll look at 2008 as a character builder. If not, it will have been a heart-aching waste of talent.
UPDATE: "Waste" is too strong a word, if only by a little bit.
