When the Irish lost yesterday, something sort of strange happened. I didn’t feel shaken, depressed and inconsolable as I had in that moment after C.J. Sanders bobbled that punt return against Miami.
I just questioned my sanity. Why do I continue to dedicate four hours on a Saturday to watching this team when I know they have the ability to affect my happiness? It’s a sickness, man. It’s a weird dedication that makes both no sense and perfect sense, depending on who you’re talking to.
I’m glad Irish fans are continuing to tweet during games. It’s strangely comforting to know I’m not alone in feeling the way I do. Hopefully, you’ll feel the same way reading this recap.
The Irish drop a heartbreaker in Jacksonsville, Fla. to the Midshipmen, 28-27, when a gamble on the defense doesn’t pay off.
