I hope Coach Mac learned a lesson when he called a deep handoff play from inside his own end zone, which resulted in a safety. This isn’t Alabama and our players are not that good yet. CSU loves them some safeties.
We still, cannot get off the field on third down. NDSU demoralized us with 9 minute long scoring drives that tired our defense and broke our will. I’m not going to say anyone quit playing, but I quit paying attention. “Inglorious Bastards” was on TNT and I am a big Tarantino fan. We gave up 22 unanswered points and looked, and probably smelled, like garbage.
“Two steps forward and two steps back.” While I love Paula Abdul, what I don’t love is beating archrival CU, (no matter how awful they are), and then losing the very next week; and to a supposed “cupcake” like NDSU. I know, I know, NDSU is really good, but I don’t care. (See paragraph #1). It’s a lose-lose situation for CSU and the guy that scheduled this should be fired. Oh wait…
The Rams play next at San Jose St against a team than narrowly lost to Stanford two weeks ago and crushed Big Sky barnacle, UC Davis yesterday. (Yeah, that's Stanford. And don’t say, “Andrew Luck is gone so they’re not that good.”) Stanford is way better than CSU, so in theory, the Spartans should mount our horns in the town square. This remains to be seen, but if the Rams play like they did against NDSU, they should skip the trip and mail it in.
