Don’t feel sorry for me for making the 2 hour drive to Frisco. My buddy and I enjoyed our $12.50 watered down beers and $11 brisket nachos😁 Wish I could have made the tailgating, but sometimes life gets in the way. Though we lost, I’m still glad I went.
As for the game: 1) We were definitely without fire or emotion. I felt the stadium in general lacked emotion. It was very weird. 2) Our QB play is, um, uh…not very good. 3) I tend to think not having Torrey didn’t make a huge difference. 4) The undisciplined play that was basically absent during the winning streak reared it’s ugly head. (More on that later) 5) I don’t feel as though we were dominated as some have expressed. If we score, which we should have, with 9 minutes left, we cut the lead to 6 and we would have had momentum.
Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that 3 of Miami’s scoring drives were aided by 15 yard penalties that I would classify as “undisciplined.” The Faulkner late hit out of bounds, one Murphy bumping the ref (or whatever he did) after the other late hit the QB, and one other that I can’t recall that I believe happened in the 2nd quarter (this penalty may have been a facemask, which I don’t generally consider undisciplined). I felt all of those were huge penalties that really benefited Miami.
And I’ll end with a little bad news for most of us: SL will be back.
