CSU head coach Mike Bobo not happy with team’s effort during first day of full pads

CSU head coach Mike Bobo.

Tuesday was CSU’s first day in full pads, and unlike the previous four, Mike Bobo was not happy with the team’s performance and vocalized it during his post-practice press availability.

“We had four good days, and then we come out today and we were feeling sorry for ourselves,” Bobo said. “The bar is set higher than that and they were way lower than we need them to be. It’s not going to get it done, so we’re going to come out tomorrow and be better.”


During the portion of practice open to the media, CSU players looked to have lots of energy, especially after strength and conditioning assistant coach Mike Stacciatti accidently bloodied his forehead after head-butting senior safety Trent Matthews. However, the intensity didn’t carry over to the rest of practice, according to Bobo.

“I would hope (we can bounce back tomorrow), because if we can’t then we’ve got a long way to go, and we’re kidding ourselves if we’re going to be a champion football team,” Bobo said. “But you’ve got to challenge the players and we all don’t feel good every day of the week, but the energy level has to be there to where we can raise our level of play. The coaches didn’t get it done today, either, myself included. We didn’t come out here with the right mindset and the players are a reflection of their coach.”
