The season ending loss to the Florida State Seminoles had a few things in common with the season opening defeat to South Florida: the quarterbacks threw too many interceptions, especially in the red zone; the defense kept bailing out the offense only to see the O turn it over again. And the explosive Brian Kelly hissy fit on the sidelines, caught on national television.
This time quarterback Tommy Rees was his victim. When he see his box score 16-26-163, 1 td, 2 int, I think you can understand why.
He switched in and out with Andrew Hendrix, who was actually much worse: 3-8-24, int.
This loss was absolutely Cublike for the Irish. Seriously, it was something out of the Chicago Cubs playbook. Leading 14-0 as the third quarter neared close, the ‘Noles scored 18 unanswered to take the lead. Rees drove the Irish to the Florida St. 32, but got picked off by Terrence Brooks in the end zone with 2:43 to play.
Michael Floyd (5-61-1) had an AWESOME TD CATCH in his final game before the NFL....
