Goal Line stand preserves 28-24 CU win / "I need a beer"

Stuart WhitehairAnalyst INovember 9, 2008

Greetings, CU fans, from http://www.cuatthegame.com

For only the second time since mid-September, we have a win to celebrate, as the Buffs’ defense made a goal line stand to preserve a 28-24 win over Iowa State.
 
It wasn’t easy, and, after a first half in which the Buffs missed two field goals and ran into the Cyclones’ punter - twice! - there were many of us, myself included, wondering whether the Buffs were the worst team in the Big 12. A second half rally, though, behind, Cody Hawkins’ career-best four touchdown passes, set the stage for the game’s thrilling final play.
 
It’s all there. The game recap. The locker room quotes.

This week’s essay, "I need a beer" should need no explanation for those of you who witnessed that first half!

Enjoy this win, Buff fans, it may be the last for ten months! I’m not giving up on beating Oklahoma State or Nebraska, but the Buffs will need to be much more consistent if we are to go bowling in 2008!

Off with you, to http://www.cuatthegame.com 

Go Buffs!

Stuart
