I know we're all trying to move on but I found this video to be somewhat healing. It's a missed field goal from 2004 vs. BYU. If you're still having nightmares of pigskins flying wide right you may not want to watch. BYU's kicker, Matt Payne, came into this game as one of the best field goal kickers in the nation. It was his senior year and he was up for the Lou Groza award. BYU lined up to kick a 38 yarder into the same uprights our Dan kicked into last Saturday. Matt had kicked a 53 yarder against USC earlier that year but Matt sailed this one high and left sparing us a loss. This was a huge win for Dan Hawkins and our Broncos. We were super lucky he floated this one, this should have been an easy one for him. We celebrated like crazy at his misfortune (notice one of those celebrating players running off the field, prolific Boise State tweeter Gerald Alexander) and finished the regular season perfect and faced off against Louisville in the Liberty Bowl. This just reminded me of a game that went our way on a missed FG, oddly in almost the same field position on The Blue. Watching that and remembering that excitement helped me heal even more from last week. If I was superstitious I'd think last week was payment for BYU's missed FG in 2004 haha
