    Colorado State earns Pyrrhic victory over Northern Colorado
    Colorado State is 2-0; Colorado is 2-0.
    One has momentum borne from celebrating victory; the other has doubts borne out of the inability to close out a victory in the fourth quarter.
    It was not all high fives in the Ram locker room Saturday, though, despite the 33-14 win over Northern Colorado.
    Four Colorado State players, including star linebacker Mychal Sisson, suffered potentially season-ending injuries.
    Starting fullback Austin Gillmore went down with a right knee injury on CSU’s first offensive play, defensive tackle Scott Carter also suffered what appeared to a right-knee injury, and even Gillmore’s backup, Jake Levin, left the game early with a knee injury.
    But the biggest blow was the loss of Sisson, who lay near midfield writhing in pain and clutching his lower right leg after breaking his ankle on a punt return late in the second quarter. Last season, Sisson led the Rams in tackles (with 95), and sacks (with 4.5). Sisson also led the team in tackles in 2009, and has started in 37 of his 39 games as a Ram.
    Last weekend, the Rams lost junior defensive end Broderick Sargent, who*suffered a season-ending knee injury, most likely a torn ACL.
    “That’s a tough blow, obviously, to our football team,” said CSU defensive coordinator Larry Kerr. “But the guys just go on; you’ve just got to keep playing.”
    Colorado State fans have little or no sympathy for the Buffs’ two tough opening season losses.
    Expect Buff fans to have equal sympathy for the Rams’ rash of injuries …
