Heartbreaker

Wow...for those of you who didn't get to watch the game tonight (the KU/NU game, that is), you missed an exciting one! Our quarterback Adam Barmann threw 3 INTs and had one fumble in the first half (the fumble was at our goal line and one interception was in the end zone), but our Jayhawks didn't give up! We were only down by 14 at half time, and our offensive line and run defense really stepped it up in the second half. We came back to tie the game in the final seconds, but unfortunately couldn't score to match Nebraska in O.T. If only, if only, if only we hadn't had so many turnovers or given up 3 long bombs for touchdowns, we could have actually won in Lincoln, which hasn't happened since several years before I was born. What a bummer. At least we made it respectable, but how heartbreaking that our only two losses on the year were both in overtime games! Oh well, at least our program seems to be heading in the right direction--and at least our coach could eat your coach!

Good point Brett! I'll have to start calling Chad "Mr. Positive" from now on! It was great seeing you guys too. We miss having Rick and Rick in Lawrence. Frisbee was fun too and I'm very impressed with your amazing disc talents! :)
