Agreed, it conditions us to expect the worst too

Yesterday when we were driving before the half my thoughts were if we can go up 21-0 with all these breaks we will win the game. If we settle for a field goal at 17-0 we have a decent shot to win the game. If we miss the FG again 14-0 is not bad but even my always waiting for the other shoe to drop ECU mind set did not envision a Pick 6 to make it 14-7. At that point the negativity took over and I was like no way we win this game. I was actually pleasantly surprised in the 4th quarter when we had a shot to win but in true ECU fashion vs the SEC we snatched Defeat right out of the Jaws of Victory. You could write a book on how many ways we have shit the bed vs the SEC to lose a game we should have won. It is literally mind blowing and at this point I am beyond Anger..I am just numb to it
