And while I’m excited about it, I’m nervous as hell. I used to get so emotionally tied up in sports that my whole week could be ruined when one of my teams lost. I wasn’t fun to be around, either during the games or after.
With age has come some mellowing, and while I still deeply care, I don’t tend to get all wound up about wins/losses. But man, I am SO uptight over this one. I want this win - not only for us as fans, but for these talented kids, these coaches, the program, my Alma Mater. A win tomorrow and a chance at the CFP is just a continuation of the dream that came true on PACmas.
