Or Stoops. With USC, LSU, and Florida on top of the poles, Stoops may be inclined to pile on as many points as possible on every chance they get.
Sure would be nice if C-Hawk gets as much time to throw against the spooners as what we saw against MofO. When he has time, good things happen. It was also interesting that there weren't many (if any) snaps out of the shotgun. That's one way to limit the 'bad snap' syndrome seen in previous games.
Good things in Boulder:
1) Total domination of a team.
2) A classy win. No personal fouls or cheap-shots by the Buffs. Taking a knee on MofO's 5 yard line with 1:30 left on the clock showed the visitors some mercy. I wonder what Miami (Ohio) fans thought about Boulder?
3) Practically every skill player touched the ball on offense. 11 different receivers, 10 different rushers, 3 different punt returners, 2 different QBs. Come to Colorado, where everyone gets to contribute with the first string offense.
4) Defensive cohesion. No one player stood out. The pass rush created a lot of forced passes for incompletions. The rush was stopped. Great on 3rd downs. Yeah, a few more turnovers could have been nice, but there is nothing wrong with a shutout. It was nice to see the coaches and players focus on closing the deal and playing hard through four quarters.
5) The rushing game. Hagan got the 119th worst rushing monkey off his back. "HUGH" became a familiar chant. He must have slept well last night.
6) Eberhart was a perfect 6-6 on PATs.
7) Sacky's tailgate. Rep for the hospitality.
Really, there was nothing not to like, with the exception of the poorly timed Sipili bomb. If only everyday in Boulder could be like 9/22/07.
