You got trou­ble, my friend, right here, I say trou­ble right here in Fort Collins. As we pointed out last week, no team was hit harder by per­son­nel losses than the Rams from last year to this year, and it be­came ap­par­ent in a pair of sea­son-open­ing losses to Hawaii and Colorado in which CSU lost to the spread by 26 and 25 points, re­spec­tively.
