The straight scoop
from Colonel Mustard
Nov. 20, 2001
So it all comes down to the game with the vermin. And for a change they
have something on the line. This is a series unlike any other that we play.
The teams and the fans really don't like each other. I have never been
comfortable at games in Boulder. Even during the years that my former
employer exiled me to Colorado. It is interesting that we have won 11
games and are champions of nothing.
But enough of that and on to the game. They are prone to turnovers and
penalties and have several key injuries to their defense. So why is this
not a walkover? They struggled with Kansas and Iowa State and and got blasted by
Texas. Despite everything I just said they have a great deal of talent and
Barnett has made them more physical than Skippy ever did (man, I miss
him). They will run right at us as K-State tried, but their QB is not as
mobile but is a better passer. Their TE Graham is the real deal. Their
defense has been up and down and is beat up. I know we will move the ball
on these guys. So we will score plenty of points. We must not give up a
long return in the kicking game. Their return men are highly ranked. Our
defense got run over by Johnson last year and we had trouble with Ochs. But
Ochs is hurt and if he plays he'll be rusty, and our defense is much improved. So I
believe that we can stop them.
We have the better, more consistent, big-game experienced team. We should
win this game by about 14 points. But I have this nervous feeling that
won't go away.
