In his first game as the Denver Broncos quarterback, John Elway had issues with where he lined up on the field, and was relieved repeatedly by Steve DeBerg in the Broncos 2-1 start. Coach Dan Reeves named DeBerg the starter after that, with Elway soon returning after a DeBerg shoulder injury. An inauspicious start with Elway’s tail-kicking, in what would end up being a truly successful marriage. When Peyton Manning started his first game with the Broncos, they stumbled to a 31-19 first win against the Steelers, with enough eventual losses following it to be both 1-2 and 2-3. Broncos Nation was aflame before Manning and what would become one of the NFL’s most historically prolific offenses would rip off…

The Colorado State defense is eager to get back on the field this Saturday and use the experience they gained against an explosive Michigan offense. Speaking with a few of the players, while it was certainly frustrating to allow the Wolverines to score 51 points in Week 1 and there are a lot of things that need to be cleaned...

Everything that the Rams want to accomplish this season is still on the table, including reaching the postseason for the first time since 2017. In order for the Rams to begin the road to bowl season though, and prove that this program is...

That game is currently slated...

Coming off of Saturday’s 51-7 loss to Michigan, head coach Jay Norvell is looking forward to the opportunity to correct the mistakes that hurt the Rams in Week 1. As the first-year CSU coach explained, there were opportunities for his team to capitalize more on both sides of the football last week, but the overall level of execution was just...

Colorado State had no chance against No. 8 Michigan on Saturday. While it technically would have been possible for the Rams to pull an upset as 30.5 point underdogs, actually expecting an Applachian State-type result in Week 1 would have been like walking into a gas station fully expecting to win the lottery. Crazy things happen in college football, but...

Finish better than you started. It’s a simple goal for a team in any sport, but particularly college football, where the playing field is far from even. Outside of Alabama, Ohio State, a few select others, the mindset for most teams is not national championship or bust. It can’t be — at least not in the current structure of the...

Going back to the spring, the Colorado State coaches had been open about wanting to see more production from the linebackers. On more than one occasion both head coach Jay Norvell and defensive coordinator Freddie Banks expressed to the media that they wanted to see the group flying all over the field and being disruptive against the run. And particularly...

Colorado State held its first scrimmage on Wednesday and according to head coach Jay Norvell, the level of execution was about what was expected for the first true live reps of fall camp. Norvell explained that practice is a much different pace and in a faster setting there tends to be more mistakes early on. That was definitely the case...

LAS VEGAS — When Colorado State and Wyoming play there is never any love lost between the two sides. If you wear CSU colors north of the state line, there is a good chance that a burly individual wearing a Pokes shirt will remind you that despite trailing in the all-time series, the Cowboys have a winning record against the Rams since the introduction of the Bronze Boot. That is if they don’t curse you out, or pour a beer on your head. (Yes, these things all actually happened.) With a rivalry that predates the assembly line, it makes sense that there is occasionally a bit of animosity. When you play as often as the Rams and Cowboys do, with bragging…
