You are not a come from behind team.
When you are behind, it takes you forever to score.
When you are behind and you go on 7-minute drives as you did today and come up scoreless, you inadvertently help the opposition by chewing up the clock,
You played a team for the first time in two months that can actually play defense.
But the most important reason the Rose Bowl loss is not your fault is that you just happen to play in a conference that year after year proves in the bowl games that it is highly over-rated.
Today’s bowl game scores:
Texas Tech 45
Penn State 24
Michigan State 7
Mississippi State 52
I was very impressed by the undefeated TCU team that felt it was representing the “little guys.” TCU QB Adam Walton was the epitome of true class during the post-game interviews.
In the end, defense wins these games. TCU’s defense, the best in the country, rose (no pun intended) to the occasion.
When the two-point conversion failed, and it shouldn’t have with a wide open receiver in the end zone, the game was over. Why? Because
It is a frustrating loss for the Badgers. But give TCU credit, a PRIVATE school of 9,000 not given any respect or credit by the pompous NCAA officials in their ivory tower against the over-rated Big Ten.
Let this, and all the other games today, be a lesson to the so-called mighty, but not really, Big Ten. You just can’t show up. You have to actually play the bowl game.
