I’ve got two good thoughts and four bad thoughts becuase it was that bad of a week for me.
1. Kyle Brotzman- Yes, he choked and choked badly, very badly. However, putting that aside, Kyle Brotzman is still what college football is all about. He’s a guy that got in to college on his own academic merits, walked-on to the football team, and became the star kicker for one of the greatest teams in the country. That to me is a lot more admirable then a guy who steals a computer, cheats on tests, and picks up a $200,000 paycheck on his way to the national title game. I admit that I thought Boise was the best team in the country. And guess what, I still think they are the beat team in the country. They are simply the victim of one of the biggest choke job heartbreakers you’ll ever see. And when it comes to my life as a sports fan, it’s not that surprising that this happened.
