The KU Coach Ate the Buffs

Blessed with the gift, and gifts with the rhyme
I never say quit when I'm out to get mine...

Props and Drops from this weekends’ Buffs’ loss to the Kansas Jayhawks and the Broncos’ last second win over the Steelers:

DROPS: Exactly. The Buffs’ receiving corps suffered another horrid game, as they dropped many passes throughout the afternoon. Youngster Josh Smith dropped a 4th down pass that effectively ended the game, and senior Dusty Sprague dropped a key third down pass that killed a drive deep in KU territory. The Kansas secondary, lead by their stud AA Aqib Talib ( I loved his last album) harassed the receivers all day, as they had a minimal effect on the game other than the dropsies.

PROPS: The Broncos front was in Ben Roethlisberger’s grill more than a motorcycle helmet. They swarmed around him on many pass attempts, and although they missed sacks numerous times, they hurried him, hit him late, and forced him outside his comfortable pocket. Strong (and quick) outside pressure by Elvis Dumervil and Tim Crowder, coupled with creative blitz packages, made it a hectic night for Big Ben.

DROPS: With the Buffs’ WR problems, Cody Hawkins needed a standout game at the QB position. Didn’t happen versus a staunch KU defense and with very questionable passes and more personnel scrambles by the Buffs. Cody seems to be immune from the coaching staffs’ wrath when he makes mistakes. RB Hugh Charles fumbles early in the game, and he is removed for nearly two quarters (which seemed to kill any chance at momentum the running game had.) Cody makes a bonehead throw, and he’s back in there the next series. Anything wrong with sitting him down and “relaxing” him for a series or two while backup Nick Nelson runs the offense?

PROPS: The Donks’ Tony Scheffler had a magnificent game, catching five passes and a TD. Looking fully recovered form injuries, the TE has a chance to be the pass catching safety valve and short pass recipient in the offense. His speed creates matchup difficulties as most LBs will struggle versus him. In Boulder, TE Tyson DeVree had a stellar game (perhaps due to the WR struggles) as the Buffs’ found the TE game that had gone missing for a few games.

DROPS: Hey CU students: can you put down the bong, put away the hackey sack, or download that illegal music later, or resume the beer pong game later and show up at kickoff of the games? What looks more small time than vast chunks of the south side of Folsom empty at kickoff. Especially on national TV and when your classmates are running onto the field to empty rows.

PROPS: Only in Colorado can you sport shorts and a t-shirt at the Colorado game on Saturday afternoon, and 24 hours later sport a ski jacket, hat, and gloves at Invesco. And the cold did little to deter Bronco fans’ enthusiasm, who were loud and boisterous all night. The large contingent of Steeler fans were drowned out all night by a home crowd that was heading for the exits at halftime just two weeks back.

i seriously wonder why the KU admin doesnt send Mangino to a spa or something. beyond all the fat jokes, he is dangerously obese.

Mangina is disgusting, but I will say this- that team does NOT make mistakes. None. Penalties, assignments, nothing. They make you play a perfect game to beat them, and we couldn't do it. That's coaching. Also- are those sunglasses permanently embedded in his head? Because that's the only excuse I can think of.

oh- and ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY on the student section. It was an embarrassment. This is the problem with CU sports- the students are more interested in getting fucked up and causing problems than the actual game, so when they graduate and mature, they don't support the athletic department. Pathetic.
