There have been arguments around here about how bad we were when M2 took over. I tend to agree with @sackman that we were about as bad as at team could get at the BCS level, maybe the worst BCS team in the nation. In the Hawkins era we had a couple big wins including beating Oklahoma and Georgia but those were games when we played way over our heads and those teams had bad days. Yesterday wasn't one of those. It wasn't a case of an inferior team pulling out a close win. We were the best team on the field. If anything Oregon made it closer than it should have been. Oregon was better than us at a lot of positions but we were better than they were at a lot as well, overall we were the better team. How long has it been since we could say that coming off a game against a respected P5 opponent? Our WRs were better than their DBs, Our DBs were better than their WRs. Our OL won the majority of the plays and their OL had nightmares with our DL. Tupou was simply a beast. He didn't have a lot of tackles but he pushed their center where ever and when ever he wanted to, when he wanted a particular space he occupied it and they couldn't move him. We should be able to dominate MWC teams and we did, we were a much better team to the point that CSU's motivation didn't factor. Idaho State turned out to be what it should have. Michigan is one of the best teams in the country and while they are better than us at most positions we had the advantage at some and if Sefo hadn't got hurt we had a fair shot to win in their place and it wouldn't have been because they gave the game away. I don't think I'd like to be Oregon State next week. They are getting a Buff squad that isn't going to look for ways to lose. They are going to see a CU team that has some real athletes and coaches who can get the most out of them. We won't go undefeated the rest of the season, we aren't close to that good yet but anyone who is expecting to see poor, undermanned, struggling Colorado the rest of this year is in for a rude surprise.
