Actually Dane, no. If you watched the game, it was very entertaining throughout. Lots of momentum shifts, great plays by both sides, emotion all around, fans going crazy, etc. Although the scoreboard didn’t suggest a thriller until the end, it was an awesome game of football from start to finish.
P.S. Put another way: it was nothing like the Miami-tOSU championship game a few years back, which, as I believe you and I have both argued here before, was really a poorly played and not terribly exciting game until, due to the fact that both teams were equally mediocre during regulation, it went to overtime.
