70-3 still lingers with Buffs : (Boulder Daily Camera)


The Boulder Daily Camera has an interesting article on how the memory of the 2005 Big 12 demolition of CU is still fresh in the minds of the 9 remaining players and 2 coaches from that team. Here's a good quote from Darian Hagan, an assistant coach (and former CU QB) who was on the 2005 staff. "I remember warming up and those guys were laughing and joking over there," Hagan said of the Longhorns, then led by quarterback Vince Young. "They didn't respect us. We thought we could go in there and hang with them. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be 70-3. And then in the fourth quarter, blitzing and piling it on, I didn't think that would happen, but it did. "What they did was pretty much try to clown us on a national stage, but you can't carry that. We have to let it roll off our back, but it's going to be in the back of our minds, I can tell you that."
