    If we had kicked our extra points...

    Baylor would not have gone for the 2 point conversion it made since going for it would have risked only being up by 2 instead of 3...

    So, we would have only been down a field goal on that last drive instead of needing a touchdown...

    Therefore, despite all the missed opportunities not capitalizing on turnovers and despite our defense being unable to force a single punt...

    We were still just 2 boneheaded Hawkins moves from going to overtime.

    I think we're getting better.

    It's gratifying to see such steady progress since Hawk was hired. Home Run.

    They truly are making it up as they go along. Hawkins thinks that in order to fulfill his vision of himself as a "risk-taker" and "guy who lays it all on the line" that he needs to make retarded decisions like going for two in the first quarter and then compounding the problem by doing it again shortly after.

    Other coaches don't do this for a reason:: it is stupid.

    He probably thinks that he is Sean Payton.

    True, but the fumble by jefferson going in for the td was the killer and keisau's horrible playcalling and refusal to throw the ball when cu got into the red zone hurt worse.

    CU had homefield advantage, a great crowd but decided to give Baylor all the chances to take lead after lead. The worst program in the history of the Big 12 wins over Coach Hawk's program.

    What makes you think Goodman would BE the kicker.

    Oh, right. My bad.

    In intramurals softball, it is a home run.

    With like, uh, six guys on base and no catcher, and it's a nerf ball. Yeah, like that. We call it a MEGA-slam, because it's better'n a "grand" - so much better.

    I couldn't see well in the stadium. Was that Jefferson fumble legit?

    Yes. The ball was coming out before he went down.

    It's on the cubuffs highlights. Look around 6:34 and see for yourself. Two angles.
    AT 6:50 it sure looks like his body is down and he's still holding the football, but ...

    From the replay from behind you could see it out before he went down. The fumble was legit. Trying to do to much. Love his running though. Would have liked to see more later in the game.

    I'm not a replay guy, I'm a buffs homer, but here's my breakdown:

    Yess. Look close at shot three (there's the ball!) and then shot four (I see the arm bent-- but no ball!) In five you see the tip of the ball, but it is close to his feet. The front view is less telling than the back view. I watched it closely and you could see it out-- this would be the shot four frame-- but from back by the coaches bench view. And I am a CU homer too, you know that, but it is what it is. We were THAT close to winning this game-- in spite of the coaching staff. That is why I want Mac in here now. I think CU gets to a bowl game with Mac here. Not sure with Cabral. Not sure if the staff would listen to him. I think they would listen to Mac.

    I won't quibble with the call on the field. It is what it is. Too bad for Will Jeff, for sure.

    Interesting that (IIRC) no calls on the field were overturned this game - is that right?

    There were some interesting spots of the ball, - both ways - but no calls overturned that I can remember.

    It was about as close as it could get. Really tough play, he made really good read and cut on that run. I will never be upset with a kid giving extra effort and it causing a mistake. I was impressed with willjeff last night.
