    Colorado game got a little more interesting

    I was pretty optimistic about the Colorado game in Boulder coming into the season. After last night's big win, however, I'm a little less optimistic (to say the least).

    Anyone's thoughts on CU?

    WVU is playing really bad football.

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    We've never played well at Boulder and I wasn't too optimistic before the season began that we could win there. That being said I think CU is also pretty young - I still think we've got a chance to win.

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    While on paper I think we should have a shot at CU, our history at Boulder proves otherwise. We seem to struggle there in all sports, not just football. I think that game looked like a long shot even before last night.

    Anyone optimistic about any road games this year needs to hold down that optimism until we prove we can win a game on the road.

    Starting this weekend would be nice.

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    This game says less about CU being good than it does about WVU being bad. WVU's coaching was just awful last night.

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    I watched the game from beginning to end and am actually More optimistic now that I have seen them play. After the first two series where they put up 14 points I thought we would have another Missouri, but after that point there offense became nonexistent. I was surprised to see them sitting in a 4-3 defense with little to no blitzing and they seemed to have a very poor run defense. West Virginia would move the ball well, but killed themselves on third and short. I think they went like 2-9 on third down against CU and almost all of them were very manageable under 4 yards to come up with. Colorado also seemed to make lots of dumb mistakes with missed catches and such and WVU had a ton of penalty yards.

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    I wasn't all that impressed with Colorado, or C. Hawkins. Their running back could be a problem, because ISU has obviously struggled defending the run, but I wasn't overwhelmed by their passing game.

    well our run defense needs to be shored up. as stu scott would say," those dual freshman rb's looked sick nasty."

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    WVU coach lost that game... 3rd and 1 and you dont have your best running back in the game?

    2 quick RB's vs 3-3-5 D makes me wonder too.

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    CU didn't score a touchdown after the first 5 minutes of the game...

    How about that trick play by WVU where the 3rd string QB missed the broad side of a barn by about 5 yards!

    At least I got my credits!

    While WVU is not playing up to it's potential, is it possible that you are mad that your prediction of Colorado sucking is not coming true!!

    I want a cookie for predicting Colorado's victory a month before the season started. I was called an idiot and now I want a pat on the back! Fact is that WVU is going to get outcoached in 90% of their games. They made a bad, emotional hire and he is going to take that program into the ground

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    ISU needs to find ways to win. The rest of the season is more up to ISU than how these other teams looked this week or last week. I believe that ISU has a chance in every game the rest of the year, but ISU must continue to improve.

    Re: Colorado game got a little more interesting

    I think our strategy against Iowa would work wonders against CU - jam receivers at the line and keep everybody close because I'm still not all that impressed with Cody Hawkins at QB. The guy doesn't have the arm strength to make the quick out throws and the deep ones. Keep everybody close and defend the run and I think we will have a chance to win that one.

    That little Shermaninator dude can run. He'll be trouble for ISU.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)
