I'm glad we're highly ranked in these statistical categories. But, our record is only 1-2. This is because of terrible special teams play. If we properly handle and on side kick and GET OUT OF THE WAY of Saturday's closing punt, we're 3-0 right now. It's a shame that the Aggies don't have a better record. Everyone's worked too hard to be 1-2. We must fix these focus issues with Special Teams NOW. CSU was obviously punting high and short all night long to keep it away from Kerwyn Williams. After the first fumbled punt, we started just getting out of the way. WHY IN THE WORLD DID WE TRY TO FIELD THAT LAST PUNT? GET OUT OF THE WAY!!! This one is on the coach. He should have told everyone to just get of the way and game's over - USU wins 21-13. But no, we have to try to catch it. Unbelievable!!! IF CSU downs it on the 1 yard line - WHO CARES!!! We still win! Lets get some common sense and focus going on special teams right NOW before the BYU game. Change the special teams coach if necessary!!!

Skilled, but dense = USU.

I agree about the two special teams plays being the difference. But, get the ball on the 1 and USU is not necessarily out of the woods. There is a risk of a safety, closing the gap to 6 and giving the ball back to CSU. But, I would rather take that risk than take the risk of turning it over in a muff.

Good point by M. Johnson. If we get the ball near the goal line on that last punt, there is the risk of getting a safety. However, I was at the game and our running game seemed capable of getting a couple of yards on every play. With Turbin in the backfield, they could punch it out of a hole without too much risk. I agree that I'd rather take that risk than trying to catch a high punt with about 6 CSU players standing around me. We've got to be more disciplined and focussed on what makes sense every time a ball is punted. This starts with the coaching.
