Ugh. I guess it's just now setting in, but really? It's hurting my head to be reminded of things like 'John Navarre was the last QB to beat OSU'. REALLY?
it's gotta stop. this isn't a rivalry right now. We've got to have this win on saturday. I've been down recently, and finding myself getting apathetic with regards to the team's performance.
I feel like this team and the fan base are displaying a kind of 'battered-wife syndrome'. We've been beaten down so much that we just accept an imminent loss until we're rebuilt and able to contend. Well, we were losing to OSU even when we were 'built', so that needs to go out the window.
This team needs to step the f*** up this weekend and make it happen. Get focused and rip it on saturday. Have some confidence. People seem mopey and distracted right now. That's totally unacceptable. Rich needs to bring these kids together and get them jacked.
A win over OSU and a solid win in a low-level bowl game would completely rejuvenate the program and ease the pressure off of Rich so he can get this team ready to contend in the Big Ten next fall.
here's to hoping this incredulous streak of losing to OSU ends on saturday. it's got to. where's the sense of urgency?
