    I heard from an unnamed source that he said Sefo's name sounded like a "40 acres and a pickup truck" name during pregame preparations.

    I thought Millan came across as pretty unbiased.

    Matt Millen showed himself to be an idiot as a GM, but I thought he did a decent job. He shows some insight, because he does know the game. Sure, his pronunciation isn't the best, but I think that's a common problem for college announcers calling games of teams that don't move the needle nationally. I was more pleased that he gave Chido proper respect, even if his pronunciation of Awuzie isn't great. This is a BTN crew - I can't expect them to know CU that thoroughly. He was able to note that Montez had Fields open as well on his deep pass to Frazier, and he made some good comments about the pass rush for both teams. For example, he did a good job of explaining the Chido sack/strip - lineup of the DBs with slant of the DLine. I wouldn't have thought about the DLine slant to free Chido up.

    That replay is pretty fantastic. The DL and FB had no idea Chido was coming until he was at the QB. Didn't even see him.

    Just so you know our SID hands out a sheet that has the pronunciations of all uniquely spelled names to the media. Its not woosh.

    (Name is pronounced chih-doe-beh ah-wooz-yeh.)
