Despite poor results, buffs are not lacking in effort and energy – BuffZone

Losing week after week – and losing a lot – is certainly not easy for anyone to take.

But as the Colorado football team hobbles to the finish line in this disastrous season, they continue to show a valiant effort in every game.

“Oh, yeah, that’s one thing about this team that I’ve never really experienced in the six years I’ve been here,” running back Alex Fontenot said after Friday’s 55-17 loss at USC No 7. “For example, we lose, but we keep the same energy. Nobody cares about themselves. Everyone is still locked up. Everyone wants to win and we still believe we can win.”

CU (1-9, 1-6 Pac-12) faces a difficult task as they seek another win in their last two games. The Buffs visit No. 15 Washington (8-2, 5-2) on Saturday and then host No. 10 Utah (8-2, 6-1) on Nov. 26 to end the season.
