But I am a true fan. And I believe.
I knew 1:29 was enough time for Tech to march down the field and score. We'd done it 10 previous times this season. Why should tonight be any different? I was a bit nervous that we were out of gas. We had certainly left it all on the field. But I believed.
How could I not? We have arguably the best quarterback/wide receiver combination in the country. Of course the winning drive/touchdown was going to involve them both. Mike Leach wasn't going to trust this fate to our "stellar" kicking team (sorry Matt Williams (I know you're REALLY new at this) and Donnie Carona, but seriously guys. kick. ball. through. uprights.).
And then that throw, catch, and touchdown that I will remember for a lifetime. It capitalized, highlighted and symbolized a changing of the tide. Tech CAN will the big one. We CAN hold on and not snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Our gauntlet is just beginning. OSU will be tough, but they're very similar to Texas, and they haven't won in Lubbock in many years. Thankfully, we have a week off to prepare for OU in Norman.
Last, but certainly not least, the Big 12 Championship game.
I just saw that we're #2 in the BCS. With our strength of schedule, if we win out, we play for the National Championship.
Miami, here we come.
Remember, I believe.
