They've actually been picking up the pace some this year. They've won games (I think I heard) where they scored in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 100s. I'm sure I'll get negged for that comment though. For that, I am sorry.

I'm all nervous and such, got the butterflies like I do before big games.  I don't really expect to win, so hopefully that keeps me calm the entire game.  Just be in the game at the end, I think (or will that just frustate me even more?).  Who knows, just, Go Blue!
