Thoughts on the Sac State Game (now that I have calmed down)

    Having watched the game at Folsom, and then listened to the BuffTalk postgame call-in show, I would like to make the following observations.

    1. While like the idea of a no-huddle offense (I have been wanting a no-huddle offense in Boulder since about 1998), the current offense, which mainly consists of a quarterback under center, with a fullback, halfback, one wide-receiver, and two tight ends (if I am doing my math correctly--there is alcohol involved) does not give our team a chance. The defense just loads up the box and stops the run, and our running game has almost no creativity (I say "almost" because I liked the one end around play). I don't want a spread, but come on, why bunch everyone up! It just helps the defense!

    2. Webb is just not good. He's okay at some times, and horrible at others. He's got heart, but not the skills. I only saw one play from Wood, and he looked okay, but I can't imagine that he looks good in practice, or he would have beaten out Webb.

    3. When we started out running the clock with about 7 minutes left up by one point, I knew we had lost the game. It was patently obvious that Sac State would get the ball back, and score in some fashion, and by running the clock we were essentially running the clock on our offense, who would not subsequently have time to try to answer the inevitable Sac State score.

    4. Our defenders generally looked like they did when CU lost to Toledo under Hawk Who Must Not Be Named. They bit on everything Sac State did, and left open ridiculous holes for Sac State to run through. I don't blame the freshman corners--they are freshmen--but the defensive coaches are just horrible.

    5. With touchbacks on the 25, there is no reason to return a ball out of the endzone on a kickoff, period, yet our returners did this time and time again.

    I would say a lot more, but I am getting slowly drunk and I need to watch myself.

    EOM.

    P.S. The new video screens looked awesome!

    If you name Hawk, you defeat the purpose of not naming him.

    HA!!!! I would rather name hawk than Bummerbree aka Embree right now what a hack. Seriously I could get the sisters of the poor, deaf dumb and blind team in a better opportunity to win than this POS of a staff.

    I like the idea of taking the ball out of the endzone if it isn't too deep back there. Gets you a chance for a big play. Besides, it isnt like starting at the 25 vs the 20 or 15 is going to matter to our offense in most cases.

    Thanks for your observations. I wasn't able to see the game (even though I have comcast) so your details are revealing. We seem to think alike.. I guess that makes me drunk... and not on the good kind of kool aid....

    What can I say, I have devolved a high tolerance over the past few years. It now takes me quite a while to get drunk.
    Another thing to blame on Hawk Who Must Not Be Named!

    Just so I understand... Somebody reveals his conclusions about something you know nothing about (you admitted to not watching the game) and you conclude that you two think alike? That's odd. Does anybody else think that's odd?

    I hope to Christ you don't determine that you think like me, and here's where it gets ticklish in a transitive properties sort of way--I saw the game and totally agree with the Tsar guy. I seem to think like him.

    Now do you understand my concern?

    Bumbree. Good one. The best thing that comes from this game is a clear realization of this coaching staff's abilities. We hafta know what The Real Porblem Is before our 'leaders' (cough cough) can even start thinking of fixing it. Not that these guys have proven to know "Good" from "Bad" at all.

    Let me remind you that Jon Embree was a highly touted recruit, who elected to stay in Colorado and play for Coach Mac when CU was very down. He bleeds black & gold and wants to win. He's highly involved in Buffs4Life. Feel free to criticize his coaching, the team's performance, but referring to him as a bum is probably gonna earn you a whole lot of neg rep.
