This year, I see the CSU game the same way. It's either confirmation that things are happening and a confidence boost for the team & fans... or it sucks all the air out of the season. More than just for the season, I think it goes a long way toward determining HCMM's future with the program. This is about the closest I'd ever be to calling an opener a "must win game". Really hoping that it's a celebration in a couple weeks.
