Was at the game last night. Lets be honest, that was probably the worst game I have ever seen at Reser/Parker. It was worse than the Avazanno or Pettibone era’s because I didn’t have any expectations back then. You could see it early on in the demeanor of the sidelines that OSU wasn’t going to be the aggressor.
As I think about my own playing career, I had many nights like that. Nights where you go so be hind, did so many things wrong, that there was not relief but the final whistle. That was the kind of games that get coaches fired.
All of that aside, there is a game this week, a big one. It is against an opponent that also had probably their worst game in this decade. Every player on that OSU team needs to get up today, brush off last night and prepare like this is their last game ever. A win, and it may not be for the seniors, but a loss and it could be. The season doesn’t stop because you had a bad game, just like life doesn’t stop because you have a bad day.
Go Beavers, Beat the ducks and let this game go. It will do you no good to think of it another minute longer, unless those thoughts inspire you to do better Friday.
