Freeing. Fun. Happy.
That's really great! (And I'm also really glad we won. I can never allow myself to watch a game rooting against our guys, just to justify the coach getting fired.)
But as you semi-suggest, it was like watching two FCS programs. It just didn't pass the "eye test." It's year 5 for Lovie, but can you imagine putting Illinois/Rutgers on ABC at 3:00pm for viewing by a national audience? Pretty darned ugly. I thought J. Leman was going to drop his microphone and quit after that opening Rutgers drive. He was so down and despondent. Next up = 15 pt. underdog to 1-2 Nebraska.
5-6 rugby shirts!
