Being a die-hard Cat fan, this would be the perfect opportunity for me to gloat. Not gonna do it. The game runs in cycles, and the griz have been at the top of the cycle for over 25 years. Considerably longer than the usual stay at or near the top. I can tell you this. If this years griz team was in the playoffs, they would certainly win a game or two. It's a much better football team than their record indicates. The fall from grace has been rapid and harsh, as that fall usually is. Your stroll away from glory will be short. The griz will be a thorn in the side of the Big Sky again, and it won't take long to get back there.
No matter the sport, or the school, there is never a "birthrite" to be the best. When griz nation realizes that, the recovery can begin, and the low points in the cycle will be much easier to deal with.
