Respond with your thoughts. Colorado has now given up 500+ yards to Oregon and USC. With ASU's high-powered offense coming to town this weekend, are you worried at all? In all honesty, CU's defense has been pushed around at times...allowing far too much in the run game and giving up sizeable chunks of yards. Against USC, it was no surprise looking at the post game box score and seeing that the Trojans averaged 6.7 yards per play. How are you gauging Colorado's defense so far? Guys like Chidobe Awuzie and Tedric Thompson have been praised as leaders of this defense but, with all the hype surrounding the team's recent ranking and string of wins, is it time to come back to earth and start criticizing this team and its weaknesses? In other words, the defense I think gets cut some slack because it is on the field so damn much. But giving up 500 yards of offense multiple times frightens me. What legitimate criticisms do you have, specifically regarding the defense and its players?
