    It disturbs me how much our football team views CSU as a rival

    Eh. He was asked what was his favorite game, so you figure it had to be a win. Then its basically between Cal and CSU. The Cal game was pretty anti-climatic, so I can see him going with that answer. Hopefully if he is asked that question again after a year of beating USC or UCLA or someone, he will have a different answer.

    Interesting response that is counter to what many have said/believed:

    I would actually agree with this. The former was more NFL mentality. Trusting the players to already have a knowledge of how to play the game at this level and giving them a direction with the understanding that they will execute. The current staff's "in your face" attitude seems much more of a hands-on, teaching philosophy, with lots more supervision and follow-up. I'm sure successful examples of both styles can be found.

    Alex Kelley is a very good athlete. Like, shockingly good for an interior OL. I expect him to develop.

    In fact, there's a scenario where he could be a starter this year if we end up having to start Irwin at LT.

    Irwin-Kelley-Crabb-Munyer-Nembot would be acceptable and hopefully show the expected improvement which makes me somewhat optimistic.

    HOWEVER Mustoe/Freshman-Freshman-Cotner/Freshman-Freshman-Mustoe/Freshman getting the second team reps makes me hope Dave Forman is the real deal.

    It's a fair point, in my opinion. Though Pete's will do in a pinch.

    I wonder where he's going? They must be good if he's willing to drive 45 minutes

    I've seen Mills at Pete's. After his performance against KU, if that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is.

    Any burrito with rice in it is a strange thing based on my upbringing.

    Maybe Alex hasn't been to Effrain's. Best Burrito in Boulder County. There's a hole in the wall up in Leadville that's outstanding, but you can't get there in 45 minutes.

    There is nothing in this world that is not better with gravy.
