I laughed throughout that final paragraph


I agree too that CU's current talent base is best suited to running the ball to move the sticks, score points, protect the defense and hopefully increase the odds of winning.

What baffles me is how CU ran the ball so well last season and now, with the stable of skilled backs and an OL mostly back, can't run it all.

I know the QB's struggles hurt and Lewis has to make the defense pay yet CU should still be able to run the ball. How many teams have had near no passing game and could still run the ball, almost at will? You'd think none but many have (back in the day).
