Dude. No. I wasn't there for the original app state game, but the mood leaving Akron was an irritated/disheartened "that shouldn't have been that close, maybe we aren't that good, but I wasn't expecting the Rose bowl anyway." Going from national championship aspirations in 07 to losing to a double A school in the first game... That was a mental collapse in expectations. That was the Horror. Today was constant fear of another collapse since the game was announced up until about the first quarter ended.
