My biggest issue during the end of the Spaz era was that I didn't feel anything. I was so resigned to losing that I was rarely nervous, rarely excited and generally bored. During the USC win, I finally felt those butterflies of excitement again about BC Football. It was nice to have that old familiar feeling again. Saturday an unwelcome old feeling returned. It was the pit in my stomach feeling. The is this really happening feeling. I thought we were going to blow it. Fortunately Justin Simmons picked off Wofford and BC successfully killed clock to hold on for the win at Wake.
The first half was probably the best 30 minutes of BC Football this season. The second half was almost as bad. The Defense just couldn't get off the field and the offense went cold. I was sure the missed PAT was going to cost us the game. I am relieved it is over and relieved BC won.
Despite the drama, the win still means a lot. We are one step closer to the postseason and now back to .500 in conference play.
I will have my grades and second viewing thoughts up late Sunday.
