Initial Response-Yeah Baby yeah! Words cannot describe how happy I was to watch on the TV as we just routed a team and a program that has been the gold standard in LSC Football for the past decade. We were the better team and we expected to kick WT’s butt, and that is what we did. Our Offense was better. Everyone was saying that Preston Rabb, WT’s QB would shoot it out with Tyrick Rollison. No offense to Rabb, but he and Rollison should not even be mentioned in the same breath. Rollison and the Lion offense are head and shoulders above WT. That is just a fact and it was proven tonight. The crowd was huge tonight.
As I was sitting there watching the game, I remember 2 years ago when the Buffs came to Commerce and wiped the floor with the Lions my final year in grad school. There MIGHT have been 100 fans in the stands after the half, and Carthel was on the Buffalo sideline kicking our tail. How just two years makes a huge difference.
Now, it is rant time. Whether he wants to admit it or not, this was a personal win for Colby Carthel. The rubes and yokles who run West Texas A&M fired and lied about a good man in Don Carthel. I know this much, if some institution did that to my Dad, I would do everything in my power to run it up and rub their nose in it. Human pride sings a vengeful song, and you know Coach Carthel is happy that he was not only able to win this game big time, but that he was able to do it in Commerce, with his Dad by his side, and clinch a share of the conference championship, one that will not be shared with West Texas A&M.
Finally, even though WT has been the power team in the conference the past decade, we lead the all time series 15-14. How many can say that? Few, if any. We have many more conference championships and a National Title. So to all the talking heads, we have a tradition that WT will take many more years to build.
Tomorrow I will have post-mortem where I evaluate the game. Everyone have a great night!
