IS THE CURSE BACK?
Another game, another "is our defense going to show up?" Traveling to San Jose to play the Spartans was a perfecting "turn it around" game for the Rams, so I thought. After getting pounded by North Dakota State, SJSU was going to be a tough task but a winnable game, not so much. Having a week where coaches would get in the faces our Rams to focus back on the season at hand instead of basking in a week one win over a sorry CU Buffs team (who by the way got smoked by Fresno State 69-14), didn't happen. Instead, I am thrown back into my four year Steve Fairchild coma. I thought I was cured!
Not all was bad. Grayson looked pretty good throwing for 297 yards and 2 touchdowns while being mugged most of the game. He also spread the ball around too which is a nice sign of confidence. Kivon Cartwright has been a pleasant surprise pulling some nice grabs and a touchdown. Sir Charles Lovett looked excellent with 99 yards and a touch.
Now for the bad. What is the deal with our defense??? Damn. Against CU we looked unstoppable and lately I've been catching Momo having coffee at the local 'Bucks instead of covering some wide receivers. Our DBs need to start stepping it up. This is ridiculous. San Jose State was passing on us all day long. On the other hand, our running defense did look improved from last week but it's hard to tell anything when opponents are putting up 40 on you.
As you can tell, I wasn't to enthused about this game. That's why I was on the hunt for a new, inspiring fight song for CSU to reflect the times we're in now. I think I found it! 'I am the Ram' is repeated so it's easy to learn. And it's got the word 'BOLD' in it for all you 'BOLD' obsessed junkies that can't get enough of the word itself. Enjoy! The lyrics are listed below.
BORN TO BE BOLD I'M THE SIGN OF THE BRAVE
ONE HERO ALONE WITH A WHOLE WORLD TO SAVE
I AM THE STORY OF HONOR AND GLORY
I'LL STAND UP AND FIGHT WHEN I KNOW I AM RIGHT
I WILL NOT BE AFRAID
I WILL LEAD THE PARADE
I AM I AM I AM THE RAM I AM I AM THE RAM
