Whew! We made it out of Winston-Salem with a "W" and although the numbers don't look too bad, this was not an impressive game. The two-minute drill at the end of the first half was the best series of the game. Marlon Lucky made a spectacular block that allowed Sam Keller to throw the winning touchdown pass. But while I was listening to the post-game show on the radio, I kept thinking that we'd watched different games. Perception. Guess it depends on where you're sitting.
It just seemed like the enthusiasm wasn't there. Perhaps they were looking ahead to this week's showdown with USC. Perhaps it was the 90-degree heat. I've lived in NC, so I know that 90 there is different from a 90-degree day in Nebraska.
Maybe a win is just a win and it doesn't have to be pretty and neatly packaged.
