Last Home Football Game for CU 2008

Great defense, but offensively -- well --- we'll hope for more consistency next year. We have a fairly young team; in fact, we said goodbye to just 13 seniors at the game.
Here are my highlights from the CU-OSU game last evening in Boulder -- because these photos and videos are far better than the game itself! Except for that Scotty McKnight touchdown -- as reported by 9News: "On fourth-and-9 from the Cowboys 28, Cody Hawkins' pass hit wide receiver Cody Crawford's left shoulder pad at the 15-yard line and bounced high toward the end zone, where alert wide receiver Scotty McKnight cradled it as he fell across the goal line to pull the Buffs to 20-10."
Why couldn't I get a video of that phenomenal play?!
It was a bit chilly while walking to the game but you could sense excitement in the air.

The Ralphie statue on the plaza looked particularly golden.

With the temps predicted to be near freezing, the club level seats looked inviting.

One of many banners hanging in Folsom Field.

Not sure why this fan was dressed in bandages as Halloween was two weeks ago.

Before the game, we rise and sing the Alma Mater. Well, we rise, listen to the band PLAY the Alma Mater, and join in at the end with "Dear Old CU."

Here's Pistol Pete, the OSU mascot, who looked a bit like a cowboy in a witch's costume. In fact, with their orange and black uniforms there was a hint of Halloween in the air. Ahh..........maybe that's why the fan was in bandages!

Some scenes from the scoreboard:

Here's Ralphie leading the team onto the field at the start of the game:

Lest anyone think Ralphie is easy, here's a video from the Spring Game last April:

And finally, the half-time score:

We managed to keep OSU about 13 points under their game average, but still lost the game 30-17. So, we'll have to beat Nebraska in a couple weeks to play in a bowl game. We'll see how that goes.
