Post 2005 similarties
Anyone else notice the similarities between this season and the '05 season?
-In both seasons, TxState was ranked near the bottom of the conference, then came out and won a conference championship.
-The '05 conference championship was on the line in the final game against SHSU
-The SHSU game was won by TxState in OT in '05 as well.
-SHSU scored the tying TD with a 44 yard pass with 2:06 left in the game in '05. This time around they scored the tying TD again through the air, but this time from 27 yards out (still a long pass), and this time with 4 seconds left to play.
-A comparison of the OT plays in both years:
In both years SHSU started play in OT and going towards the same endzone in both years as well.
Here is the first play in OT by SHSU in both years:
'05 S 1-10 T25 Pate, Wade pass complete to Roberts, Corey for 4 yards to the TXST21
(Varvel, Daniel).
'08 S 1-10 at T25 Bomar, Rhett pass complete to Houston, Catron for 8 yards to the TXST17 (Smith,C.). C. Smith also played in the '05 game as well.

'05 SHSU eventually gets a first down as in '08. Except in '05 they make it to the 4 yard line before settling for a 23 yard FG, while in '08 they settled for a 32 yard FG. That last drive leading to the FG is also eerily similar as in '05 SHSU rushed for a short gain followed by two incomplete passes, while in '08 they rushed for a loss followed by the two incomplete passes.

On the TxState drive things were a little different. In '05 TxState scored in two plays, as opposed to the 5 plays in '08. However, in both instances the cats moved the chains once and in both instances it was a 5 yard run (Nick Session in '05, and K Bush in '08) into the endzone to seal the OT victory.

Just some interesting similarities I thought.

Another thought: Last year SHSU was the one to come back from a huge deficit and win the game with 13 seconds left to play. It just seems the games between these two teams always go down to the last 2 minutes of the game.

Trust the Path
