    The football team lived up to expectations Saturday night, proving completely ineffective against a very good Trojan defense. *While they would put 29 second-half points on the board, mostly through a 22-point fourth quarter that occurred long after I left the stadium, the first half was a comedy of zeros. *The result: a 47-29 loss that cemented their bowl-less fate. *At least the Buffs covered?

    Sefo Liufau and the Colorado offense had a tough time moving the ball against USC. *From: the BDC.
    Here's the pre-halftime drive chart: punt, punt, safety, punt, punt, interception, fumble. *Woof. *In all, CU could only put up 69 first half yards, and scored more points for USC then they did for themselves. *With the program's first bowl trip in six years on the line, it was a heartbreaking letdown to see the offense unable to live up to their side of the bargain. *Moving the ball against the Trojans was never going to be easy, and I don't know what else I reasonably could've asked for, but the bottom line is they didn't come through when needed.

    Today in the bag, I'm talking the banana stand's triumphant Saturday, basketball against Harvard, and soccer's magical run to the Sweet Sixteen.
