Point blank. This team deserved to play and have a chance in the playoffs. All this has done has fueled the fire for next year.
Regardless of playoffs or not, what that committee did;n't do was discount what this team and coaching staff has done with this program. Those seniors may not play another game, may not step on a field or put that Austin Peay uniform on ever again. But what they have done, is help start and change the culture of this program that we as fans will never forget. This team and coaching staff have given us fans actual and realistic expectations.
