I should have stayed up in the pressbox. But we led by 7 with six minutes left and I thought it would be fun to be on the field as we made the big play to salt away the game. We did not make a big play to salt away the game. I went from "please don't let them score" to "oh God are we not even going to get to overtime?" in maybe two minutes of real time. What a disastrous final six minutes.
I started recording before the field goal, hoping against hope that Maryland not setting the kicker up in the middle of the field would be the reason he missed it.
He didn't miss it.
