    when did CU go from "electric" to "just glad we catch the punt". Is this a result of the green movement and an attempt to cut down the team's carbon footprint?:confused:

    We're a bad block in the back penalty away from having a nice return from Espy Sunday. We'll be alright there I think.

    Honestly, I dont get the bitch about this yet??? Special teams was a HUGE strength, maybe our only one, Sunday?? 54 yd fg, nice punt return (negated), nice kickoff returns, good coverage???

    I'm just venting a little. Goodman nailed that FG. Espy looked lost back there until th last return, though. KO return wasn't too shabby.

    Agree...he didnt do ANYTHING until that last return. Hope that was a sign he's starting to figure it out. I never returned punts, but, I'd imagine it'd take an adjustment period. I'd **** my pants if I had that job. Seems like he has pretty good hands and shifty..maybe he'll figure it out. Lets hope.

    I get what you're going after Lefty...In Hawkins' radio show yesterday; he essentially said that he's happy with the fact that we're just catching the punts not returning them due to how difficult it is.

    That is not the attitude of a hungry coach - that's the attitude of a complacent coach who's ok with mediocrity (which he hasn't even attained yet, since I consider 13-25 well below mediocrity :bang:).

    +Rep to anyone who can find me a top BCS program head coach who is OK with JUST catching a punt, not returning it.

    That's pretty much where I was aiming. Hawk just seems OK with just strolling along. Is it just me or does he sound like a guy who has lost his fire?

    We don't know what their plan was for most of those punt returns, though. If they were going for the block (which I think they might have been, judging from the number of guys right up on the line of scrimmage), then it's no surprise that Espy didn't have much of a return.

    Special teams is probably the one area where I thought we were pretty good on Sunday.

    Agreed. I thought ST was by far their best area on Sunday.

    Just had to comment on this because I hadn't thought about Marcus Stiggers in years. I remember neuweasel considered getting him out of texas to be a major score. He's playing semi pro for the dallas diesel now apparently.
