Things were a little too close for comfort Friday night. Southeastern Louisiana gave Colorado State all it could handle in the second game of the year. But when the game was on the line, for the second time this week, an inexperienced Rams team was able to pull out a tight win in front of the home fans (80-69) to advance to 2-0 on the young season. Things started much better offensively for CSU than they did in Monday’s 65–63 comeback win over Gardner-Webb, as the Rams were able to shoot 54% from the floor and hit 8-of-15 threes in the first half. As a result of the hot start from deep, CSU led by as much as 13 and…

Colorado State fell 28-16 to San Jose State in a frustrating game that ultimately got away from the Rams Saturday night. CSU racked up penalties, failed to execute in the Red Zone, and at times struggled to protect the quarterback as the Spartans produced nine sacks and 14 tackles for loss on the night. We already covered all of that...

Jack Howell and Henry Blackburn are integral to the future of Colorado State football. Role models in the locker room and playmakers on the field, CSU’s safety tandem is leading the way for a Rams team that is in the midst of a major transition. If you’ve watched the Rams at all this fall, regardless of the score, No. 17 and No. 11 are working their tails off to make plays for CSU and to give the team an opportunity to be competitive. Whether it’s coming up with a turnover, making a touchdown-saving tackle or just breaking up an opponent’s pass, the versatile pairing have really impressed with their constant effort. During his weekly press conference on Monday afternoon, Jay…

Boise State still owns Colorado State. The Broncos moved to 12-0 all-time against the Rams with a 49-10 beatdown of the Green & Gold Saturday night. In the 39-point victory the Broncos did whatever they wanted offensively and looked equally as impressive defensively. They gained 514 yards of total offense, scored on all seven trips to the Red Zone and converted on half of their third-down attempts. Conversely the Rams produced just 170 yards of offense, finished 1-of-12 on third down and ran 33 less plays than Boise State did. It was pretty much complete and total domination. This game was not as embarrassing as 2020, when CSU had multiple punts blocked in a 52-21 defeat, or when the Rams…

Boise State proved once again that they are the class of the Mountain West with a 49-10 beatdown of Colorado State on Saturday night. The Broncos moved the ball with ease against CSU and faced little resistance in what was a one-sided matchup. With freshman quarterback Taylen Green able to do whatever he wanted through the air, Boise State mounted drive after drive in this one. And when they got to the Red Zone, unlike the week before against Air Force, this time the Broncos capitalized with a plethora of rushing touchdowns. By halftime the Broncos had already outgained the visiting Rams by over 200 yards (321 vs. 109), and had established a three-score lead (28-10). Then in the second…

Justin Michael starts the show by discussing how Boise State has been a boogie man for Colorado State since the Broncos joined the Mountain West. He then goes over what we can take away from the 2021 matchup, including the importance of scoring points and burying Boise State if the opportunity presents itself. Finally, Justin talks about junior running back Avery Morrow and how his hot start in league play has him in rare company. If the Nevada transfer goes for 100 or more yards on the ground this week, he’ll be just the second CSU running back this decade to do so in four consecutive games.

Colorado State has shown a lot of heart over the last month. The Rams have played three different quarterbacks in CSU’s three conference games — a situation that very easily could have been a disaster — especially after starting the season 0-4 in the non-conference slate. Despite the constant shuffling of the starting lineup and losing more than a dozen veteran players since the season has started, after overcoming a 10 point halftime deficit and beating Hawaii 17-13 on Saturday the Rams currently sit at 2-1 in the Mountain West (2-5 overall). Had a few plays gone differently on Homecoming against Utah State, CSU very easily could be undefeated in league play. Oct 22, 2022; Fort Collins, Colorado, USA; Colorado State…

Justin Michael previews the 2022 matchup with Hawaii and talks about what the Rams can do to be successful against a Warriors defense that has struggled most of the year. He also plays an interview with Hawaii head coach Timmy Chang from Mountain West Media Days (21:17). In the interview with Chang, we hear what the recruiting process was like for the former Nevada staffers that followed Jay Norvell to Fort Collins, what his relationship is like with his former boss & more!

The frustration was palpable during the postgame media session Saturday night. After dropping a winnable game against Utah State on Homecoming weekend, Colorado State’s fourth consecutive loss to the Aggies, Jay Norvell talked about how the Rams are simply not good enough to get away with committing so many penalties. “We’re just a team that doesn’t have a margin for...

The Colorado State men’s basketball team will be without one of the best point guards in the country for the foreseeable future. DNVR has confirmed that senior point guard Isaiah Stevens recently broke his foot and will have surgery this week to repair the injury. CSU later confirmed the news via release. “First and foremost, myself and the team feel terrible for Isaiah. He is a special player and a tremendous leader. We are confident that Isaiah will get through this and make a full recovery,” said head coach Niko Medved via press release. “While we know that his presence and leadership will be missed, I know this team will respond. We will continue to work diligently and we are really…

Colorado State’s mindset entering Friday night’s matchup with Nevada was that the conference slate can provide a new beginning for the Rams.  After not winning a game for close to a calendar year and carrying the nation’s longest losing streak into the Mountain West opener, a young CSU (1-4, 1-0) team could have very easily crumbled under the pressure of...

Let the youth movement begin. When the Rams take the field against Nevada on Friday night, there’s likely going to be three freshmen starting on offense. Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi will presumably be the team’s starting quarterback with Clay Millen still dealing with a shoulder injury. After starting the season behind Giles Pooler on the depth chart, the true freshman from Aledo,...
