"I can't do this every Saturday!"

The above quote is from my Father In-law. My own poor dad had to step outside after the first OT. He didn't even see Silva's pick. I feel really guilty. These people are now sharing my suffering.

As for the game: a win is better than losing, but these types of wins are not good indicators for what's ahead. Yes, toughing it out shows the team has heart, but these close games are not going to break our way all season. The team needs to stop making huge mistakes. And the defense needs to bear down.

Everyone catch your breath and calm down. It won't get any easier next week. AOL update, second viewing thoughts and grade reports to follow later tonight or Sunday.

Wow, and I thought Clemson liked OT last year. You might want to get a cardiologist on speed dial, that's what we did last season. Congrats on another close win though. Representing ACC well.

I empathize with your FIL;I've been doing this every Fall Saturday since September, 1970, and it is about to do me in. Can't they do it the easy way just ONCE? Is it that hard to find someone who can consistently kick PATs? Clearly, Ryan is a cut above, but the mistakes are going to do them in if they don't get a handle on things, and fast.

I can't take any more of this either. What I want to know is, how the heck did they give up something like 100 million yards to BYU and still win? We could very easily be 1-2 or even 0-3 right now.

I'm glad TOB is not taking any credit for these wins, cause frankly, he really doesn't deserve a whole lot, not until we are up by 42 points in the 3rd quarter or something.

At any rate, I watched the ND Michigan game which made me feel a little better about the objectives of the football gods this year.
