I think the big reason people are freaking out is because it was Tampa. As some on here pointed out before the game, this isn't the same squad as we faced at the end of last season. They're a lot more talented on both sides of the ball and, most importantly, they haven't given up.
We could have put Clausen on the field against Tampa at the end of last year and we would have won by two touchdowns. This year hopefully we figure it out and split with them. They certainly didn't look unbeatable, and we certainly didn't look hopeless.
Week 1 folks. It's gonna be a fun ride.
