I also like the aggressiveness, and we came tantalizingly close to a memorable victory. Props to the entire team for erasing the 14-point deficit after half-time.

Great effort, accountability, and attitude. One of the very few times in years I was able to enjoy and appreciate a game even though we lost. Can't ask for more than what they give.Go Bears!

All of the above. Plus, I think the defense was more fatigued than the offense, and that last overtime score made by Arizona was indicative of that. The players understand how important a coach showing confidence is. And despite the loss, I do think this will help the team in the future. They fought hard, seemed to give all they had, and lost with a great effort. Coming back TWICE from 14 down..........there is no quit in this team.

I didn't see it, but on the radio broadcast it sounded like the play worked.
Duncan had it in his hands but it got knocked away before he could secure it.
So it required a great defensive play.
The majority of the time that conversion on that play would work.

At the present rate, this team and this coaching staff is on a trajectory where they will be winning most of these type of 50-50 calls.

So I'm glad that Wilcox said he'd do it again.
I'm also glad that he isn't happy with the overall play of the team.
Like against Oregon, the defense got gashed by the speed of the opposing team's running game.
Turnovers and penalties also contributed to the loss.

I expect, just like the Oregon>>>WSU turnaround, that the team will have a fire lit under them during the week and will be so fired up for Colorado that the effects of the altitude won't really matter much.

The offense has now put together 2 solid performances back to back.
And the defense can be relied upon to bounce back.

The one concerning factor is if Colorado takes care of the ball. We don't do so well if we can't get TOs.
