Ok.

I need to decompress about this game, which was basically last week on steroids, for a bit. I'm not going to say anything negative ... yet.

For the second week in a row, the Baylor Bears met a determined, aggressive, upset-minded team that truly believed it could win. This one backed by a literally rabid home crowd. And for the second week in a row, Baylor did everything early to make their dreams reality. Nick Florence threw a horrible interception on Baylor's second possession of the game. On our third, he underthrew Terrance Williams yet again on what should have been a touchdown. Soon, the Bears found themselves down double-digits and reeling from a team that is clearly better than their conference affiliation suggests.

For the second week in a row, Baylor responded admirably with a big run, this time compiling 24 points in the second quarter to take the lead going into the half. Unlike against SHSU, we didn't get a feeling of safety until we scored with about 2 minutes to go, but the result was basically the same. Baylor's offense obliterated another team while our defense ... didn't.

This is where people say "A win is a win!" and celebrate merrily. While I agree in principle that every win is important ... that game was just exhausting to watch. I am extremely happy, though, that Nick Florence was able to bounce back huge after his early struggles. If you want to talk negatives, in the entire scheme of things, Florence was absolutely not one.

I'll have more later.
