sleep. Which is ridiculous. I was so upset after the Mullen tweet. I had my heart set
on being relevant again. Before I am no longer on this planet. Just a week later, and I
am more excited than I would have been with Mullen. Life is funny. Someone here wrote
thank God we lost to B.C.. and that in fact, is true. Two things at the time, I didn't think '
were true.

I'll take credit for the BC comment

Two programs headed in different directions off one miserable game
 
I came to say something similar. After the Mullen fiasco, I was down on all the names mentioned, especially HCFB. But after some time I respect ADJW’s approach here. Take your chances with another MAC/FCS flavor of the month, an FBS coordinator, or try to catch lightening in a bottle and get the guys that can get the best kids here and pray for the rest to work itself out.

I like this approach. LFG Orange!

Yeah, it doesn't always work out but I always think of this 'story' when bad things happen

Once upon a time, there was an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years.

One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically, “you must be so sad.”

“We’ll see,” the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it two other wild horses.

“How wonderful,” the neighbors exclaimed! “Not only did your horse return, but you received two more. What great fortune you have!”

“We’ll see,” answered the farmer.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune. “Now your son cannot help you with your farming,” they said. “What terrible luck you have!”

“We’ll see,” replied the old farmer.

The following week, military officials came to the village to conscript young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out. “Such great news. You must be so happy!”

The man smiled to himself and said once again.

“We’ll see,”

This is too funny. I read this in a children’s zen book. And reference it often. Sometimes good luck and bad luck is all mixed up

Love that story. Have used it more than once.

Not just you, sir. Not just you.
