11-0 Is Bitter Sweet

The 38-0 shellacking of Wake Forest and an undefeated home record was bitter sweet last night.  I’m already mourning the departure of Manti Te’o, Kapron Lewis-Moore and Tyler Eifert.  Te’o with his skills and leadership is not going to be replaced.  The tight ends waiting behind Eifert are not going to be breaking his receiving record either.  Lewis-Moore was a leader and spokesperson for the players.  I don’t know who will try and fill that huge void. 
In my heart I think Cierre Wood will come to his senses and return for his final year of eligibility.  If not he is a fool.  I suspect Chris Watts and Zack Martin will stick around for their extra year as well.  Theo Riddick and Robby Toma will be missed however guys are waiting in the wings just as good.  Braxton Cave quietly went about his business and it will be interesting if the middle will stay plugged up with someone else.

2012 was supposed to be a year of improvement and building toward a 2013 National Championship run.  The schedule was too daunting, the quarterback too green, the secondary too suspect, the head coach too much of a screamer and the grass playing field too crappy.
Someone failed to give the Irish that script, instead they wrote their own.  Regardless how things turn out come mid January, we here at the Station are enjoying the ride with some saddness.

Go Irish
