Waiting Game

It's most likely that any announcement about Norries Wilson and whether he remains as head coach will come out tomorrow.

Remember that even if he is retained, the team and current recruits need to know as soon as possible.

If I hear anything credible, you all will be the first to know...

For those who are wondering, Bill Campbell was in attendance yesterday. He was sitting for much of the game in the bleacher seats talking to Ted Gregory '74.

A must see on the CU sports website.
EvanMiller talking about the last play when he was in the Brown backfield stopping their runner who was reaching over him in order to break the plane of the goal line with the ball.That is when the cry from the CU side was "NO'NO"NO!".I know the rule allows it because the refs gave Brown a TD earlier in the game on a reach-in when their guy was stopped short of the goal. Maybe, they decided that you are only allowed one per game.
Seriously,would it be so wrong if the ballcarrier had to have his head or shoulder in the endzone along with the ball?
Thank God that the Brown coach put the game in the hands of the 'wildcat' formation and took out their best weapon the hyphenated quaterback for the last two plays from point blank range.
See you next year.

Great win for the kids, coaches, and those of us who care about CU football.

How did Bollinger look after the game? Was he fired up?

Thank you team for never giving up yesterday. Teamwork, determination and ability carried you through. To the seniors, thank you for the years you have provided entertainment to all the CU fans. You have left a legacy displayed yesterday for those upcoming to follow. Columbia enters the 2012 season with a WINNING streak!

This "breaking the plane" crap is a disgrace to football. I'm surprised the football factories haven't yet recruited people (or cooked them up in the laboratory) who are over 7-2
just to lunge forward with their arm stretched out.
This was a great win and nothing can change that. But the fact that any win electrifies CU fans proves that there's a huge problem. Yearning to win a single game, and finally doing it in the season's last contest...and never getting close to winning the not good.

This was absolutely one of the greatest games in the history of CU football. In a sense, all the losses are worthwhile when they set the stage for an inspired game like this. It was really perfect. I know the players -- especially those for whom this was their last game -- will treasure this memory for the rest of their lives.

I was disappointed in the Estes quote after the game. He could have been more gracious.

What a game! What an effort by the whole team, and especially the seniors! Did anyone else notice the stop. In the secnd OT by Evan Miller and Kalasi Huggins - Miller Huggins? Maybe the blessing of the Babe was at Baker Field?
Lots of turnarounds today. Much better in 2nd half than first. Solid clock management at the end. But most of all, big plays when needed on both sides of the ball right up to the last play.
Shades of the Penn game on the Lions' first play from scrimmage in OT - hearts were in our throats. but it didn't faze the players. What determination! Seniors go out as winners, and next year has something to build on.
And nice to see Jake smiling after the game.
An inspiration for us all, as sports are at their best.

A great, great, truly inspiring win! I spent most of the rest of the day savoring it.

And surely, Jake and Peter N. Stevens, it had at least a teensy bit to do with coaching?

While this blog has been of great service to CU football (and even CU sports general), it's also gotten pretty nasty lately. I think the poster yesterday who urged the team to "revolt (Occupy Wien WStadium?) was exceptionally dumb and simply said shameful nonsense, but the threat to meet Jake "in a dark alley" was probably the absoolute low point.

Perhaps, going forward and in celebration of our current win streak, we all might both temper our verbal vehemnce and just behave nicer with and to each other.

We all want the same thing. At this point let those closest to the situation make the right call.

I disagree Cathar. While those posts did cross the line, the passion and intensity is something CU football has been lacking.

I'll take the little "edge" CU fans have had of late over the years of meekness.
