First off, check out some photos from Wyoming’s 44-0 win over Colorado State Saturday by Wyoming Tribune Eagle photographer AAron Ontiveroz. This was AAron’s final sports assignment for the WTE and WyoSports. He recently accepted a photographer job at The Denver Post.
Here are some leftover quotes from the game:
–“That’s the funnest I’ve had playing football for a while now. … You couldn’t ask for any other way to go out in keeping the Bronze Boot here against our arch rivals, and doing it the way we did.” — senior free safety Chris Prosinski
–“They were yakking and talking the whole game. I had to punish them a little bit.” — sophomore running back Alvester Alexander, who ran for 147 yards and a school-record five touchdowns.
–” I was real proud of the kids up front. They came off the ball. They blocked well and gave Al some running lanes. Alvester did a good job of carrying the load for us. He’s a young man getting better every single day and maturing as a Division I tailback.” — coach Dave Christensen
–“(CSU) saw the last couple of games we played and maybe they thought we were a pushover coming into the game. But we thought if we got three-and-outs right away and if the offense scored some points they would quit and lay down. Which as you could see, they did.” — junior defensive end Josh Biezuns
–“This was by far No. 1. I don’t think we’ve ever had a game like this since I’ve been here.” — senior cornerback Marcell Gipson on how this game compared to the others in his career.
–“I met (Friday) morning with every kid I recruited here and talked about the most important thing for next season was (the CSU) game and would springboard us into the off-season. They believe in what we’re doing. We have great athletes. We’re going to get better. We’re going to stay the course, stay positive and we’re going to be fine.” — Christensen
–“We’ve been playing well together the whole year, and I think we’re learning each other’s strengths and weaknesses up front. We know what everybody can do and what everybody can’t do. We know how to get to the quarterback now.” — Biezuns, who had 3.5 of UW’s six quarterback sacks in the game.
–“We’re going to recruit 25 more guys. We recruit across the board at every position. We have a lot of kids in our program that have been here for six months, or a year and six months. We have to keep developing them.”
