Buffs blast Rams: Sonny Lubick gets the last laugh
Someplace, somewhere Sonny Lubick is sitting back in his lounge chair quietly gloating. He can safely say "I told you so". Some will argue that the CSU Rams program was on a slide and that Sonny is responsible for leaving the cupboard bare. I maintain that Lubick elevated the CSU football program to heights it had never attained and will never reach again.
Get used to seeing Darrell "Great" Scott
run for the Buffs. He is a legitimate big-time player and will only get better as he gets used to the Buffs system, blocking schemes and the players around him. Cody Hawkins
continues to grow as a quarterback. His arm lacks serious strength but he makes the throws and reads that allow him to excel. The Buffs will need to tighten their defense and really establish its running game before they face West Virginia on September 18.
The Rams schedule is much easier and they should go 2-1 before having to face Cal on September 27.
I'll be gearing up for the Fraternal Order of Pigskin
fantasy draft on Tuesday night. This is the leagues second season, comprised completely of readers who read this blog. It's been one of the really cool things to grow out of this space. I'd love to do more interaction here and I'm brainstorming on ideas to make this blog more fun.
Sunday was a "live" cartoon done right after the game. I finished about 20 minutes early for my 10:30 deadline. I'm still trying to reboot my brain after the DNC cartoons and animations I did. Rich Moyer
, a fantastic animator and director helped make the DNC animations possible. If you still haven't seen them be sure to take a look
and pass them on to friends.
I'll spend Labor day, unfortunately laboring, working on a Broncs Zoo
panel for our upcoming football section and a new Broncs Zoo animation
. As always, stay tooned.
