Hot day at the Rose Bowl and though Austin's 100-yard kickoff return to start the game was called back, it gave us a bit of an idea of what we were in for. I mean, blocked PAT's (one returned by the Bruins for two points), a punt returned for a TD (dang FSU), an interception by DT Brian Price, and 250 combined kickoff and punt return yards and almost 300 yards of total offense by Terrence Austin!
Oh yeah, we lost.
But I'm relentlessly optimistic and was really happy after the game when CRN got on the PA to thank the crowd for coming out and supporting the team. He encouraged us to come back next week for WSU and almost promised a win. (I think his emotion got the best of him here, I'm sure he doesn't want any bulletin-board material to fire up the cougs) You can just sense the passion CRN has to get the ship righted.
Enjoy the slideshow, there's lots to be encouraged about.
Oh, and the other reason to make it to the game:
