    I don't think giving up 14 points during special teams is such a big deal in an otherwise tight game.:rolleyes:

    :lol:

    Every time I think special teams are getting a bit better, we take several steps backward. Cannot give up three non-offensive TDs and expect to win a conference road game.

    On the one punt return for a TD, have to defend DiLallo on one point:

    he could have made a tackle, but the ref got in the way. Matt absolutely was prevented by the official from getting to the returner.


    I know, great special teams wouldn't have let it get that far that the punter is the last line of defense, but must have felt horrible for Matt trying to scoot around the zebra and not being able to get there.

    Plus the holding and/or block in the backs on almost every return.

    it is pathetic and we need it. Scott returning kicks like he does gets him a fresh spot on the bench. Espy is still back there but I really never thought Hawk would give Cody the hook either. I dont know what to expect from this staff now, no telling.

    Good point Daaah. We just look very undisciplined most of the time on special teams. I know Texas will make a lot of teams look bad on special teams, but we have struggled for several years now. I like Riddle's recruiting, but he has to get better as a coach.

    It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad Boulder Buff. Had a couple decent returns and a blocked FG.

    Cannot agree. The kick return game looks nice and it was good to see the blocked FG, but giving up two TDs on special teams is bad, no way around it.

    You complain too much, it was freaking texas! Athletes, we had the lead for 65% of that game in a game that most thought we would be toast by five miinutes in. Give some props for the team for the effort for christs sake!

    I, for one, was absolutely giddy at the half time with the fact that we had the LEAD for an entire half. Against #2. Texas. I was ecstatic.

    Texas > Colorado

    Pretty hard to hold your team's feet to the fire when comparing it to that recruiting/talent/coaching juggernaut.

    I'm happy with the effort. But come on man, the special teams and the offense have held back progress for several years now. At some point, just playing hard is not good enough.

    If it was a one-time thing last night, I would be fine with just chalking up last night's performance to a bad game. But we have had 2-3 games every year decided by special teams since Hawk arrived.

    They had some nice kick returns and they blocked a FG. Let's break out the champagne! Sorry if I think this team could be looking like a legit North contender if the special teams and offense were better.

    north contender? sorry, the north is just a tad bit better than when brney was winning titles. however, even if it were that bad still, this team has no shot! im wondering if we win a game.

    I don't think we're a North contender. I'm saying we would be if we had better offense and special teams. But that is not the case.

    We can win the North despite our short comings, none of those teams are good. Tell u the truth, Texas was very beatable last night and they have played no one.

    blocked punt was horrific. I watched the replay 3 times and the guy came untouched. The upback could easily have blocked him but lethim go... Coaching!

    oh no, i have some negative rep, i think the point you were trying to make was that only if we had special teams we would be significantly better. i say way wrong

    I could be wrong, I only saw the replays right after the play, but it looked to me like the slowest f'ing punt I've ever seen. Dilallo really took his sweet time getting that off, and I thought it was mostly on him, more than the UT speed or even our blocking.
