I am excited, I am nervous, I am glad that we have a team that is playing an important and meaningful game again. It’s been a while.

A win would be great and I’d probably go to Louisville on Saturday. A loss would sting, but it wouldn’t diminish the success they’ve had this year.

Regardless of the outcome, I do not regret the investment of time and energy and emotion to follow these guys the last 2 years.


Whatever happens in this game, I just want to record that I am in genuine awe that we are up right now.
