We got four turnovers and stopped them three times on fourth down. No breaks? We made too many mistakes (as usual) to win. Same old story.
When you get 4 turnovers, 3 4th down stops and their QB goes 0 fer the first half, and still lose, there's no way you can even suggest we outplayed them.
sorry DBT but CU had a bunch of breaks throughout the game ...
did not take advantage when they had those chances
I was thinking more in terms of 2 clips not called, two personal fouls on QB's, one just barely, maybe legit.
Whatever. The kids outplayed those ****s and lost. For whatever reason. And **** any of you who say different.
They played hard, but in the end, it is the same old story DBT. The personal foul penalties were all stupid penalties and continue to show how undisciplined this team has become. What in the hell was Burney thinking on that one in the second half?:wow:
Yeah. That pissed me off to no end. But then I reminded myself that this kid is a ****ing warrior. Just wish we had more Ben Burneys.
Hey, I love Burney too. He has been a great help at safety this season. Just is odd how this team seems to look great on one play and completely different/undisciplined on the very next play. I wanted the win so badly tonight. It was there for the taking.
These are the types of game we used to win in a landslide. I'm done making excuses for this bull****.
Our boys did play hard. I was proud that they never gave up and they could have a couple times. Same story though. We will never win if we can't run the ball, if we keep getting stupid penalites, and our offense cant stretch the field. So many issues...
Too many missed opportunities on defense. Need to work on the arm tackles and dropped balls.
You guys don't get it. MY GUTS WERE RIPPED OUT! DO YOU GET THAT? I'VE BEEN A BUFF FAN SINCE 1976! THIS GAME KILLED ME!!!!!!!!!!
I wish I had still had that spirit DBT. I am numb to losing now though. It hurts some, but I cannot say I will be torn up tomorrow over this loss tonight. I really have never been happier to see a season coming to an end.
Worse then Montana State? Worse than Drake?
We were close tonight against a top 12 team. Granted the starting QB was on the sidelines but still. We did not lose ugly.
Way worse. We should have won this game.
Kids played their ass off but TWICE, just like last week, cu had the ball 1st down at the OSU 30 yd line and we miss a fg and then don't pick up a 4th down. That's 10-14 points right there and the ball game.
CU should have won the last 2 weeks.
I feel for you. But tomorrow you'll realize that a new coaching era will dawn soon and tonight only showed that we've got the talent to win immediately with the right guy in charge. :smile:
We were better than OSU. That is all. And my heart is laying on the floor, with it's last, feeble beats. I'm just sick.
Great point, the talent is there!
The confused looking man with the greasy hair standing on the Buffs sideline guarantees a loss.
All of those 3 personal fouls were legit calls. You never put your hands to the QB after he threw it and hit him. It'll get called every time. Burney should have been playing the ball on his PF, because he could have intercepted the freaking ball. Instead he lowers his shoulder way after the ball hits the ground and hits the WR. Again, should have been called.
They had 2 facemask penalties that were HUGE for us. Let's not pretend as if they didn't have their fair share of being inept.
There were 2 non-calls on kickoffs, but there was at least 3 times when we should have been called for false start and weren't called for it.
It sucks dbt, I used to feel like you after each game but i've become numb to it sadly. Still pissed right now but I wish this team could score when they get turnovers and in the red zone. This team could easily be 5-6 right now and a different scenario playing out for the nebraska game.
Agreed. Officiating isn't why we lost tonight. We lack killer instinct and a winner's mentality. If we had it, we would have put this team away in the 3rd quarter. It was there for the taking.
Well, none of that makes my heart feel any better. Becuase my heart is laying on the floor with a footprint in it.
If you are dead, then shut the hell up.
Even worse, DBT? Mine weren't. I was proud of the effort. I felt like they improved. And they did. But that shouldn't be enough. A game against a team that has to go to their third string QB to move the ball is a game Colorado should win. I miss the days when I expected that.
This. We were up 21-10. We should have been up 28-10 or 35-10. You have to put teams at #12 away. You cannot let them stay in the game or they'll beat you most of the time in that scenario.
:thumbsup: I probably should. I am devistated. Really. I am. I ****ING HATE LOSING!!!
DBT I get it, I take every loss hard, it hurts bad, especially when we show up and play well, get our hopes up, then rips them out....
