Seems a lot longer. Huge underdogs. Go into Cameron and win in OT. Might need to rewatch.

I was in Jacksonville for that game. Funny how you remember work trips by Cuse games. Worst one was the DePaul debacle. I was in Atlanta nursing a badly sprained ankle from hooping myself the week before. “Luckily” I was able to watch the game in my room.

I remember watching that DePaul game by myself while on the road for work, as well. Can't remember where I was, but I remember the feeling.
 
Yeah people think we are Just falling apart this year lol. We haven’t competed with top 10 teams for a long time
Lost by 5 and 7 last year to Virginia, they were a top 10 team at the time. Still a loss but far better than this years “effort”

For nine straight years we've gotten no votes for the Top 25 in the final regular season poll. This is looking like #10. The 2016 FF team wound up #10 on the strength of that, (8 years ago). The 2019 Sweet 16 team was #25. The 2021 Sweet 16 team had the most votes of any team not in the top 25. That's it over the last decade. This is who we are now.

From 1973-2014, we finished in the Top 25 30 times in 42 years, 13 times in the Top10. That's who we were then.

If this isn't a huge dose of reality I don’t know what is. Today's high school recruits were 9 years old when we were relevant.

Wow thanks for sharing even though it made me sadder lol
 
it's really something how the people indicting Red halfway through his first season (a relatively successful first half) are the same people anointing the football coach as savior before he's coached a game

There's only one word that comes to mind for the reason; "sanctions!" ;);)

Red obviously deserves more than half a season, (two full at least).And this is after our worst game vs. our worst match-up opponent.

That had a lot to do with it but certainly wasn't the whole problem.
