Hope is all we can do.

Saturday was disappointing to say the least.

I know some people say they’re done or that they aren’t going to care as much, but I don’t think I can do that.

That means all that I have left is hope. Hope that what we saw is not the repeat of the same things year after year, but instead just a first game jitters kind of thing. Hope that things can be better for us as fans and for the players. Hope that come November, we are feeling a lot better about this team than we did on Saturday.

Now onto your Scott Frost Day news.
