    CSU preseason All Conference Players

    Fort Collins (AP) - The preseason All American and All Conference selections are out. The All conference team is dominated by players from TCU, BYU, SDSU, and Utah, but there are a few CSU players that made the All Conference second team.

    2nd Team All MWC:
    C - Tim Walter - SR(RS) - 6'6, 289 lbs
    This starter will anchor the center of a very good offensive line for the Rams this season. He isn't the best player on that line, but he will certainly be the glue that holds them together. He is one of the best pass blockers on the team and he's is also a very solid run blocker as well.

    LG - Shelly Smith - SR(RS) - 6'4, 298 lbs
    Smith is a bit of a surprise to be on the list as there are a number of offensive linemen that are better than he is. He is actually the weakest offensive linemen of the 5 starters, but this should give him a chip on his shoulder and force him to prove that he belongs as a starter amongst this bunch. This preseason All Conference vote should give him some needed confidence going into the season.

    P - Pete Kontodiakos - FR - 5'11, 160 lbs
    This was a complete shock. As a true freshman, noone knows how well Kontodiakos will perform on the college stage. Clearly, big things are expected of him and we will have to wait to see if he can live up to those expectations.

    CSU Eases past in state foe Colorado and adds some injury to the insult

    [​IMG]
    Denver, Co (AP)-- Today, in a shocking upset, the Colorado State Rams have beaten their arch enemy, the Colorado Buffaloes, 38-13. The game wasn't even as close as that blowout score would make it seem either. CSU is using a new offensive and defensive scheme this year, and they both completely baffled the Buffaloes all game. Things were going CSU's way from the very beginning. They made the Buffaloes go three and out on their first drive and then the rams methodically marched the ball down the field, but ultimately had to settle for a field goal. On the ensuing drive, the Rams forced the Buffaloes to punt once again. When they got the ball back, however, they wanted to make sure they got the touchdown this time around. This time, wing back Mason broke the CSU school record with an 86 yard touchdown run on an option pitch.

    Mason's record breaking 86 yard touchdown run


    After watching the Rams extend their lead to 17-0 in the 2nd quarter things went from bad to "the worst possible scenario" quickly. CSU sent senior Klint Kubiak on a safety blitz where he would nail Colorado's star quarterback Cody Hawkins.

    After only one week, this will be the last play Cody Hawkins will play this year.

    On this bone jarring hit, Hawkins would suffer a season ending knee injury which will make the task of recovering from this embarrassing defeat a difficult one. The Buffaloes managed a touchdown in the 3rd quarter and another with a few minutes remaining in the 4th, but the Rams were in control throughout the entire game and were never in jeopardy of losing this one. In addition to Mason's record breaking touchdown run, the rams moved the ball with ease on the ground. When they needed to pass the ball, sophomore quarterback Klay Kubiak (the brother of Klint, the SS who knocked Hawkins out for the season) did a respectable job. On the other side of the ball, the Rams played inspired defense, led by their senior captain Klint Kubiak. The Buffaloes had no ground game whatsoever and the Rams did a good job of shutting down their passing game as well.

    Who knows what the Rams will have in store for them this year, but this first game could not have gone better for them.

    I just finished my game against Utah St. We're both such crappy teams that it wasn't even televised! That meant I had no Brad/Lee/Kirk/Erin for the game. It was kind of spooky. In past NCAA games I've only done dynasties with Michigan and North Carolina, so suffice it to say I've never played a game that was so unimportant as to not be televised before. :)

    That's hilarious! I can see how it would be really strange. But heck, I might like it after a while. You get to hear the sounds of the game and not worry about the repetitive commentators. Good stuff.

    CSU demoralizes Utah State

    Fort Collins (AP) --In their first home game of the season, the Rams manhandled Utah State to earn a 30-7 victory. The Rams dominated the Aggies with their running game while their defense manhandled the Aggie offense. The Rams would gain 244 yards on the ground led by hundred yard performances by both fullback Zac Pauga and wingback Leonard Mason. It's a good thing that the Rams were able to run the ball too as quarterback Klay Kubiak was hounded all day long, resulting in 6 sacks for the Aggies.

    [​IMG]
    TE Seymore and WR Morton celebrate after a Seymore touchdown reception

    On the defensive side of the ball, the Ram defense was even more dominating. They didn't rack up the number of sacks like the Aggies (the Rams only had 3) but they pressured Aggie quarterback Fischer all day and he never had a free moment to think today. The Ram defense was so dominating that they shut the Aggies out until they got a touchdown with 2 minutes remaining in the game against the Ram's 2nd team defense. The Rams also only allowed the Aggies to get 8 first downs on the day. This defensive domination, combined with the Rams very steady and solid running game caused the Aggie defenders to spend an inordinate amount of time on the field and in showed.

    The celebrations in Fort Collins will be short lived, however, as next week they will have their first conference game as they travel to play #17 BYU. This is a very important game if the Rams have any hope that this season will be the one that sees them finally turn things around. Only time will tell.

    And BOY does my offensive style lend to my opponents racking up the tackles! Look at the top tackle numbers for Utah State in this game. I guess 51 carries and 22/29 minutes of possession will do that. (y)

    Rams make a quarterback change

    Fort Collins, CO (AP) - Coach Briggs announced today that the Rams will have a new quarterback starting for them in their next game. "I've decided to make a change for the remainder of the season. Sophomore Kubiak isn't getting the job done like I'd like. He isn't mobile enough for this offense. He only has -10 yards rushing through 3 games. What's worse, he is too slow to avoid the pass rush as he's been sacked 13 times through 3 games. That's simply unacceptable."

    "If he were throwing the ball better, I might be able to justify continuing to start him, but so far Junior Eastman is throwing the ball better as well. Because of this, I've going to start the Junior from her on out. Kubiak is a great leader, just like his brother, so I know that even in a backup role, he will do what is needed of him for this team to have the kind of success that the good people of Fort Collins deserve."

    Eastman's first start of the season will come in BYU this Saturday.

    Thriller in Provo
    Today, the CSU rams played the BYU cougars at BYU in a thrilling game that contained one of the fastest scoring bursts in the history of college football. Things started very slowly as both offenses were trying to get a feel for the defenses. After a uneventful 1st quarter the score was still 0-0, but this came at a huge cost to the Rams. On the Cougars' first possession they marched the ball downfield and inside the Rams' 10 yard line. Once there, CSU's only good outside linebacker, sophomore Mychal Sisson would intercept a Max Hall pass over the middle to stop the Cougars' drive. On his modest 3 yard return, however, Sisson was speared in the ribs and will now miss the next 12 weeks with some broken ribs.

    [​IMG]
    The Rams would show the Cougars that they weren't intimidated by the Cougars' top 20 ranking.

    In the 2nd quarter, the cougars flexed their muscle and the Rams did their best to try to keep up with them. BYU would score at the beginning of the 2nd quarter on a 13 yard pass from Hall to M. Jacobson. The Rams offense would be unable to get much going and had to punt, but it was a tremendous punt to pin the Cougars on their own 2 yard line. After gaining nothing on their first 2 plays, the Cougars decided to play it safe and give the ball to their fullback McFarland. McFarland, who is one of the fastest fullbacks in the country, would bounce the play outside and streak down the sideline for a 98 yard touchdown to put the Cougars up 14-0. The Rams would keep their composure and methodically run the ball down the field to score their first touchdown to go into the half down 14-7.

    The 3rd quarter was by far the most eventful quarter of the game. It was one long serious of mistakes that was punctuated by an extreme burst of scoring. On CSU's 1st drive, quarterback Eastman would fumble the ball away. Then BYU's kicker would miss a 53 yard FG attempt. Not to be outdone, on the next drive, CSU's kicker would miss a 46 yard FG attempt. Then came an amazing 217 yard and 20 point scoring burst in only 25 seconds.

    First, BYU QB Max Hall would throw an interception that was returned 61 yards by Wilkinson to tie the game up 14-14.

    Then, just when the Rams thought they were back in the game, on BYU's next play from scrimmage, Max Hall threw a little flat pass to fullback McFarland (he just killed the Rams in this game) who would streak down the sideline for a 70 yard TD. Their kicker would miss the extra point to only put BYU up 20-14.

    And just when you thought you had seen it all, on the ensuing kickoff, senior running back/ return man Alex Square would return the kick 87 yards for a touchdown to put the rams in the lead 21-20 (thanks to the missed extra point attempt).

    Either CSU's new found confidence would carry them through the fourth quarter or BYU's offense became dejected and couldn't function as well. Regardless of which it was, the Cougars would not score again during the game. The Rams would add another touchdown in the 4th quarter on a 4 yard run by new starting quarterback Jon Eastman and the Rams would go on to win 28-20. Once again, the Rams' power running game would control the clock as they had the ball for 19 minutes compared to only 9 minutes for the Cougars. This brings the Rams to 3-1 (1-0) and drops the #22 Cougars to 1-3 (0-1). The Rams will host the 1-2 Idaho Vandals next week.

    Fullback Zac Pauga was breaking arm tackles all day long to the tune of 97 yards rushing.

    Nice summary...Those scoring bursts like that are fairly rare but when they hit it's usually a bigtime outburst. I think the best I've ever had was on NCAA 09 and had 4 consecutive KR's for TD's (2 for me, 2 for CPU). It was insane!

    Rams - Vandals Game Much Closer Than Predicted​


    [​IMG]
    Leonard Mason made the Vandal defense look foolish all day long​

    Fort Collins, CO (AP) - Before the 1-3 Vandals even stepped foot inside Hughes Stadium, they were expected to lose and lose big. Vegas had the Rams by 3 TDs and apparently everyone in the media agreed with this. As I showed up to cover the pregame warmups, I found that I was the only reporter there. There were no sportscasters present and no networks were covering the game. Unfortunately for them, they missed one hell of a game, and luckily for you, I brought my handheld video camera with me to capture some highlights.

    This game turned out to be a tale of both teams using their offensive strengths. The Rams used their power running game while the Vandals kept getting the big plays thanks to their enormous speed advantage. The 1st quarter started out as expected as the Rams jumped out to a 14-0 lead thanks to 2 rushing TDs. Just when this reporter was ready to side with the Vegas odds makers, Vandals' QB Reader would hit Wideout Komar on a 74 yard passing TD.


    [YOUTUBE]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/fA_aT10kQzE&hl=en&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/fA_aT10kQzE&hl=en&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]​

    Things would settle down in the 2nd quarter as each team could only muster a FG each and CSU took a 17-10 point lead into the locker room. Both team's offensive coordinators went to work during halftime and dissected the opposing team's defense and put that knowledge to great use in the 2nd half where the teams would combine for 7 TDs and a FG. CSU would strike first on a 17 yard run by game MVP Leonard Mason who would rack up 243 rushing yards on only 13 carries. The Vandals would counter with 2 consecutive TDs of their own to tie the game up at 24-24, including this 77 yard fumble recovery/return by Keo.

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/U8GB_5VY6-g&hl=en&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/U8GB_5VY6-g&hl=en&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]​

    When I spoke with coach Jello after the game, he insisted that Mason was down and that the play was not a fumble. He then went on to say some very unfavorable things about the referees and their families, but since there were no other reporters around, he it's likely noone will find out to fine him.

    At this point, it was pretty obvious that this game would be won by the team that had the ball last, so CSU did something that they don't like to do. They started throwing the ball as well. Since CSU absolutely destroyed Idaho on the ground as they gained over 400 yards rushing. Because of this, the Rams were able to mix in the playaction pass to nice effect like they did here on this 23 yard TD pass that put the Rams back up by 7.

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/b3wudJ4cUlk&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/b3wudJ4cUlk&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]​

    On the ensuing kickoff, the Vandals would immediately strike back with their 3rd TD for 74 yards or greater as Komar would strike again, this time with an 89 yard kickoff return for a TD.

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/fA57rAYkQfk&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/fA57rAYkQfk&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]​

    This TD would once again tie the game up as the 2 weary teams entered the 4th quarter deadlocked 31-31. The Rams used their ball control type of offense to grind out the clock and slowly move down the field (the Rams would control the ball more for more than twice the time as the Vandals). They would get a FG and then a 1 yard TD run by QB Jon Eastman who is made only his 2nd start of the season. The Vandals would valiantly fight back with another passing TD by Reader (his 3rd of the day) to cut the deficit to 3, but they would get no closer as the Rams would win, 41-38.

    Luckily for me this was our second game of the season that had no media coverage so no one will be able to prove it in case higher ups come asking me about it.

    Rams Humbled against #9 Utah
    #9 Utah came into Fort Collins today and put a hurtin' on the Rams. The Rams were incapable of stopping Utah's offense and they couldn't get anything going on offense either. CSU's ground game could never get going and Utah put up a big enough lead that the Rams had to resort to throwing the ball. They ended up with 27 passing attempts and 214 passing yards, both of which were season highs by far. Utah was able to run the ball as well as pass it. QB Louks was able to hook up twice with wideout Reed for long touchdowns.

    The Rams will have to lick their wounds and try to bounce back next week as they travel to #17 TCU.

    Upset in Forth Worth


    The CSU Rams, fresh off of a spanking at the hands of #9 Utah, travelled into Forth Worth, TX as underdogs to face the #14 TCU Horned Frogs. In what was a defensive battle throughout, the Rams came out on top 16-10. CSU was the first to score as they got a FG goal on their opening drive. Both defenses had clearly come to play and that was the only score of the 1st quarter. CSU would tack on another FG near the beginning of the 2nd quarter to take a 6-0 lead before TCU stud HB Christian broke a 72 yard run to put TCU up 7-6.

    With 6 seconds remaining in the 2nd quarter, TCU would add a FG to take a 10-6 lead at halftime. The beginning of the 2nd half was a huge rollercoaster of momentum. CSU got the ball first, itching to march the ball downfield to regain the lead. On the first play of this drive, however, CSU's QB Eastman (how would only complete 3 passes on the day in 12 attempts) did not read the defense properly and threw an interception.

    This would've been a pick 6 if Eastman had not made the tackle at the 5 yard line. CSU would then regain the momentum right away as they did not give up a first down and forced TCU to kick a FG. To give away even more momentum, TCU's kicker missed the FG. On the very next play, CSU ran an option play which resulted in a 76 yard TD by WR Morton.

    This would prove to be the game winner as TCU was completely shut out in the 2nd half. CSU will return home as they take on the Aztecs of SDSU next week.
