There was a critical moment in the CU game that may define our season.

We were down 24-3 with a little over a minute left in the first half. On first and 10, BA gets sacked for a loss. Now 2nd and 17. It would have been easy to say: "Let's call it a half and get outta here before it gets to be 31-3. Our rookie QB just threw a bad INT, just got sacked and our defense it on its heels. Let's regroup and fix things for the 2nd half."

Instead, Bronco allows his young QB to be aggressive. A couple of plays later we are back in the ball game and set to receive the kick in the second half.

Wow that was exciting for me to see. Teaching, or perhaps allowing, a young QB to be fearless is just fun to watch. It would have been very easy to dial it back on that series, but instead we fought back. While that may not define our season, I think it defines the attitude of this group.

If we can clean up our tacking on the edge, then we have a chance to be dangerous this year.
