It seemed like they played all four quarters on both sides of the ball.

Winning at home is critical and for the "nah sayers" would you prefer a loss? Best thing at last Sat was Air Force beating CU in OT.

for the first time in a LONG TIME, it felt like an old Husker game where nearly everything went right. We were so far ahead we got to let a lot of 2nd and 3rd stringers get experience.

They played aggressive football for 4 quarters. Their win is tempered a bit by the inferior opponent.

They took a stride in the right direction, but still need to grow in becoming more consistent in the offense. The offense was too much feast or famine. The defense definitely improved from last week.

Definitely a step in the right direction, but the offensive line still isn't able to clear the lanes in the middle and the kicking game is a unmitigated disaster. What wrong with Pickering, anyway?

Underperforming. We suck. Should have had a top 10 offense and top 45 defense. Adrian Martinez is a psychological shell of what he was as a frosh. Do we have a deep threat ? Tight ends ? P

Offense is still a little disjointed. Martinez will get there. I thought Vedral was very fluid though!

I wasn't quite as optimistic as some during the preseason; I knew there was still a lot of work to do. One of my big concerns was with the inside running game. It's not there yet.

With the exception of that drive all other scores were on explosive plays. Also Martinez was under pressure most of tje night

I need to see more. I still feel that the Offense struggled to maintain consistency.

Everyone knows when in Boulder in the 4th quarter offensive possession is vital. Most all team's defenses wear down there if the offense can not run some clock. Our D wore out - plain and simple.

CU made adjustments - went to a 3 man front and widened the ILBs to counter our success on the edge. We did not. No interior run game with 1 less man.. No vertical game. Our O ran our D in the ground.

Some of the play calling was very questionable inn the second half of the game. Why did they not use their big tight ends more? I mean Austin Allen is 6 '8" tall so why isn't here using his available

Frost was calling the plays like he was trying not to lose rather than playing to win. Colorado Coach took Frost to school.

Second half adjustments by Colorado confused the entire team and coaching staff. Felt like they went conservative just to hold on and escape.

Seems like we went into a shell - esp after Washington's long run off of the sideline flair pass. The next time we had the ball we did the exact play only to the other side. could've been a pick 6

Not, "they had to". Just if they couldn't execute the plays called, why could they execute the other ones? The offense got over confident and let it slide, with an eye on the score board.

A successful run game opens all sorts of opportunities. If you can't win the battle up front, no amount of scheming is going to help.

What I think is there should be a third choice here... get someone in there that can snap the ball. Everything is out of kilter if the snap is not proper. The whole play's timing is off.

If the running game does not improve, there is evidence that the offensive line is not getting their job done.

South Alabama had 44 carries for 83 yards. They did NOT "run it down our throats"--but I digress. WE need to be able to run the ball in order to stay out of 2nd and 3rd and long situations.

SA was running it right down our throat, we simply can't have that anymore.

When Maurice Washington entered the game things picked up. JD was invisible on offense. AM must present a passing threat for the run to succeed.

Because we have a qb and talent at receivers and tight ends to make it work.
