At halftime of Saturday’s game at Tarleton Memorial Stadium the West Texas A&M football team led Tarleton State 27-3.
What happened next was something no one saw coming: 28 unanswered points by Tarleton St. leading to WT’s first loss of the season, 31-27.
The last two seasons the WT football team has been doing what no one saw coming.
Now, the Buffs will have to do that again.
Think back to last year’s season opener, a 44-34 loss to Colorado State Pueblo. What happened next: eight straight wins. No one saw that coming.
Think back to last year’s loss to Midwestern State, a game in which the Buffs led by 10 with less than three minutes to go. What happened next: the longest playoff run in school history. No one saw that coming.
Earlier this year WT’s head coach Don Carthel was fired. What happened next: the first 5-0 start since 2008.
Be honest, did you see that coming?
What will happen after WT’s loss to Tarleton on Saturday night is yet to be seen. But the Buffs will rebound; they always do.
Count them out if you want, but I advise against it.
What happens next could be something that no one sees coming.
