I'll tell ya.
2-4, I was pretty sure our season was done.
And I had every right to think that. When we lost - it was ugly.
The Sun Belt Conference had killed us. ASU - MTSU losses to both.
Central Florida embarrassed us.
We win at Rice, but get run off the field a week later at our Homecoming by East Carolina.
Now we're 3-5, and it's time to think of "next year."
But then, a bit of a run.
Tulane on the road, Southern Miss on the road, and last Saturday, at home, UAB, in a game that looked more like what I had become accustomed to in the DeAngelo years. Fierce running game that opens up the pass. We hadn't beat UAB at all in what, like 7 or 8 years? But now, we whipped them.
It felt good, very good.
6-5, with one game left.
Any long suffering Tiger fan will tell you, "give me 7 wins a season, and I'll call it a success."
And I'll be darned if we just don't do that very thing.
It's been a schizophrenic year - but in the end, signs of life, signs of pride, and some guts, to boot.
Make no mistake, we're not that good. We play in a league that's not that good. But it's what we have, and it looks like we're starting to rise.
I'm proud of the boys.
One more, this Saturday, SMU - let's go get 'em.
