“Warriors...Come out and plaaaayyy!!!
CSU faces off against the Hawaii Warriors this Saturday at “The Ashtray,” my new favorite name for Hughes Stadium. I am excited for a couple reasons:
- The Rams have had 2 weeks to prepare.
- Hawaii is pretty bad.
- I have a 3 day weekend.
Warriors QB Sean Schroeder isn't very accurate and can't make any big plays. He is as much a threat to run as Tim Tebow is a threat to hit it with your sister. They have a couple receivers that Colorado State should at least try to cover in Billy Ray Stutzmann and Jeremiah Ostrowski, as well as little used Scott Harding. CSU should be able pressure the QB, but I'm still not convinced that the Rams cover their food in the microwave, let alone a WR.
The Warriors are led by Compton’s own RB Will Gregory. I heard somewhere that a famous rapper or five came “straight outta” there. Gregory averages 5 yards per tote, and might want to see if gangsta rapping is more his thing, because he is fairly unimpressive.
The Warrior defense also is devoid of talent. Taking away the Lamar game, the Warriors give up 50 points a game. Here's hoping Conner “Rocket Arm” Smith gets in a groove and we see some fireworks. The Rams need to throw up at least 30 to keep me satisfied and not scoring against this defense would really be an embarrassment. If I was a Hawaii’s coach I might be inclined to force them all to wear their throwback powder green unis and rainbow helmets. They could earn the “mean greens” back when they hold a team under 25. The Warriors are led by LB Paipai Falemalu who has 24 tackles and almost as many vowels. He does have 3 sacks so he gets the nod as best player.
Let’s support our Rams and fill the Ashtray with our butts. We are actually favored, so that’s a reason for optimism. If you can't be at the game, head over to The Ginn Mill to catch some of the action.
