    Late in the third quarter, with the game against Arizona quickly slipping away, CU faced a must-convert fourth-and-goal from the Wildcat four yard line.* Down 14 at the time, the Buffs needed the conversion just to stay within reach.

    True freshman QB Sefo Liufau walked up to the line to survey his options before the critical play, announcing to the crowd CU's intention to forego the field goal try.* Suddenly, out of the stands in the south end of the stadium, came an obnoxious blare - the band had started playing.* Somehow, wires had been crossed, and the drum major had called a tune prior to this critical play.* Now, CU had a freshman QB trying to bark out signals to his teammates through a wall of unnecessary noise.* It was a major breach of band protocol.

    After a frantic series of cutoff signals, the band eventually stopped playing before the snap.* The resulting play, an incomplete pass from Liufau to D.D. Goodson, put the Buffs only further behind the eightball, and CU soon fell apart in the final quarter.

    Now, did the band playing cause the resulting incompletion?* No, it did not.* In all honestly, the team was probably so focused they didn't even notice, but the band needs to be smarter than that.* There was no reason to even have something called, let alone actually start playing. As a band nerd, sitting amongst other band nerds, it was probably the most heated I got all game.*

    Today in the bag, I'm talking the football loss against Arizona, the volleyball team's weekend sweep, and the walk-off obstruction.
