You know what I hate the most, aside from the fact that the Huskies lost 13-7? I hate that all those smug national (east coast) pundits get to think they’re right. They get to believe that the Pac-12 is a garbage fire, and they get to believe that the Huskies aren’t very good.
I hate that 1 loss means the Huskies are out of the running (barring about a million other things going right) of the College Football Playoff.
I hate that this ongoing “haven’t won at ASU” streak gets to continue for another two years. It’s not even clever or interesting, it’s just random and stupid!
I hate that we’ve been ignoring how mediocre this offense has been all year, and now it’s all anyone’s ever going to talk about.
I hate this mediocre offense.
I hate that the offensive line is as mediocre as it is, when it should be one of this team’s top strengths. We should be the Dallas Cowboys of offensive lines compared to the rest of the Pac-12!
I hate that we were THIS close to the BYE week, followed by 4 of the next 5 games at home.
I hate that we lost to THIS team, a terrible, pathetic ASU team.
I hate that Coach Pete opted to try that chipshot field goal instead of going for it on 4th down. Worst case: you back them up at the 1 yard line. Instead, the worst case became missing the fucking field goal on the most pathetic kick I’ve ever seen in my fucking life! I could tell by the kid’s body language alone that he wasn’t going to make ANYTHING after that first missed kick!
I hate our shitty fucking kickers.
I hate that our shitty veteran kicker put that Freshman in that position by sucking in all the games before this one.
I hate that our defense keeps coming out flat on the road in the first quarter.
I hate that our defense sucked at tackling throughout this game, particularly on that third down in that first drive, where we could’ve stopped them from ever scoring, except the guy broke about a million tackles to get the first down.
I hate that the rest of these games are effectively meaningless. Oh sure, there’s still the conference and the Rose Bowl(?) or whatever major bowl is up for grabs, but it’s sure to be a collosal let down.
I hate that we really haven’t taken that next step. We’re NOT in the realm of Alabama or Clemson or Ohio State. We’re still a tier down.
I hate that I haven’t been to a tailgate yet, and the first one I go to (on the 28th) is going to feel like a wake, at least to me.
I hate that our shitty schedule means that 1 loss is all it takes to keep us from advancing to the playoffs.
I hate that there are 5 major conferences and only 4 playoff spots. I think each major conference winner should get a spot, plus 3 at larges.
I hate that we lost.
I hate that everything feels different now.
I hate that this is how we have to spend our BYE week, instead of celebrating a potentially Top 3 or Top 4 team in the nation.
I hate everyone.
I hate everything.
