I just hoped that we could have played the time of possession game and run the clock out grinding it out but that was not to happen. We put pressure on Dodge in the first half and played good defense but they made the adjustments needed, not us. That is what the fans will complain about since we can't seem to finish anybody off once we get the lead. _

    I was listening to a national sports talk show in Houston today over lunch and Travis Rogers (the ex Jim Rome guy) was intervewing the highly respected Houston sports columnist, Richard Justice, and he was asked if any win in the NFL is a good win or if some are expected wins that teams are disappointed when they sneak out a victory. He said in the NFL, EVERY win is a win and you take what you can get because every team is capable of beating you. He said that in college, however, that is not the case. He said, if Texas were playing "a team like" Louisiana-Lafayette for example, Mack Brown would and should expect to be able to plan for playing a lot of players and trying new wrinkles throughout the game and anything short of a big win would be disappointment. While watching highlights of the ULM vs. Auburn game on ESPN that Auburn won 52-3, the announcer called it a Pop Warner game, referring to ULM's ineptitude. I hate it when we are referred to as a hyphenated school and "a team like" that. Unfortunately, these are both examples of how our respective schools are lumped together by our names and conference affiliation and how we are referred to and thought of on a national level, at least by some people. Until we find a way to get more respect on the field, that negative perception will continue. We'll see if our appearance on national tv on Friday will help or hurt that perception.

    I'm afraid that's because in the Sun Belt, anything over 15,000 is considered good.

    You notice that you never hear people use Troy in that reference, that's because they have beaten people they're not supposed to beat and even when they lose they scare the crap out of teams they were " not suppose" to compete with
