Double Overtime Final: Baylor 21, TCU 28 in Fort Worth

This was the worst game of football I think I've ever seen. I don't have anything good to say about it.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

32 straight combined drives without points.  More punts than complete passes, and by a lot. 5 turnovers, including a muffed punt and 3 fumbles.  A grand total of 326 offensive yards.  And, ultimately, a loss to TCU that cost us any chance at the CFB Playoff and our third-straight Big 12 Championship.

I wish I could find words to say about this game, but I can't.  Everything this team has worked for is gone in a quagmire of injuries, horrific weather conditions, and, honestly, extremely poor play-calling.  We can make all kinds of excuses, but they don't matter. We needed to win, and we lost.  We lost a lot.
