Colorado Vs. Fresno State: Buffs Show Nothing In 69-14 Loss

The Colorado Buffaloes allowed 55 points in the first half against Fresno State, on their way to a 69-14 defeat and their third-straight loss to start the season.

Fresno State would take a 35-0 lead in the first quarter off five offensive touchdowns, including a 97-yard touchdown reception by Isaiah Burse and a 94-yard run by Robbie Rouse. The Bulldogs would add two more scores in the second quarter before the Buffaloes would finally get on the board with a Jordan Webb 23-yard touchdown pass to Tyler McCulloch.

Fresno State would score twice more in the second half, capping off a dominant performance against a struggling Colorado team. The Bulldogs would outgain the Buffaloes 665-278 in the game, with Colorado managing just 11 first downs in the game and throwing four interceptions overall.

Jordan Webb was 5-of-13 for 85 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions for the game. Connor Wood wasn't much better, going just 5-of-14 for 47 yards and two interceptions.

Colorado Football 2012: LB Derrick Webb Holds Players-Only Meeting

Following their 0-2 start that including embarrassing losses to Colorado State and Sacramento State, junior linebacker Derrick Webb called together a players-only meeting for the Colorado Buffaloes Monday afternoon, according to John Henderson of the Denver Post.

Here's an excerpt of Webb's reasoning from the Colorado Buffaloes team site:

"Something needs to change in this room. The coaches can give us all the help they want but unless something changes in our attitudes and minds as a team, unless we do something about it ourselves, we're going to find ourselves in a similar situation as last year, where one loss turns to two, two losses turn to a losing streak."

Webb, a special teams stud who totaled 54 tackles last season, said that this meeting wasn't impromptu but in fact was "something I'd been thinking about." It's unclear what he had to say specifically but judging from the players' reactions, he got the point across.

Here's what junior defensive back Parker Orms had to say on the subject:

"The guy just leads by example. He's also vocal. Everyone looks up to him."

Colorado's next game comes on the road this Saturday against a 1-1 Fresno State team that will be looking to bounce back following a 42-25 loss to Oregon.
