Can a corner cover a back or receiver for 30 run plays and not lose focus on the 31st play when the offense finally throws the football? Can the defender responsible for the pitchman avoid trying to make a play quarterback for the entire game? Colorado’s discipline, mental strength and patience will be tested this weekend. Saturday will be the 18th time Colorado and Air Force face off. Colorado holds…
