Countdown to Kickoff Day 58: Owen Snively

Owen Snively • Offensive Line • Freshman • Tilton, NH

No 58 on the roster yet. Snively wore 57 on his recruiting visit, but 57 is already taken, so I’ll put him here for now.

So far: Snively was a three-star recruit who picked CSU over offers from Rutgers, Syracuse, UConn, and others. He took an official visit to Rutgers, so it’s easy to assume it came down to CSU and Rutgers.

The folks on a Rutgers message board claimed that Snively “likes the outdoors”. (I don’t know if that’s true or not, but lets pretend it is.) The top minds at Rutgers took this information and decided to impress Snively on his official visit by taking him to… Times Square. So that’s pretty funny if it’s true.

It’s pretty funny that they take any recruit to Times Square, to be honest. “Your new home in New Jersey is butt, so let’s hop on the Turnpike and drive 30 minutes to somewhere better.” It would be like Wyoming taking all their recruits down to Fort Collins to experience modern civilization. (That’s actually not be a bad idea. You’re welcome, Craig Bohl.)

What’s next: I’m a broken record here, but I doubt any of the true freshmen offensive linemen see much playing time in 2020.

Brewery nearest Tilton, New Hampshire: Kettlehead Brewing Company

This place is currently serving a stout named Chardee McDennis. If you’re familiar at all with Always Sunny- the inspiration for Always Sonny moniker- then you know all about Chardee McDennis, the Game of Games. Next time I’m in New Hampshire (probably never) I need to make sure to swing by Kettlehead and pay tribute. (Those black & tans/snakebites in the background look pretty good as well.

Lowest Yelp Review for Kettlehead Brewing:

“Doesn’t know her ass from her elbow” is a wonderful idiom that I should probably be using more. Thank you for the reminder, Dana G.

Management of Kettlehead, just a head’s up if you’re reading this: if you make all these huge changes to your brewery, Dana G from Little River, South Carolina (920 miles away) will make a return visit and give you a better Yelp review. A tempting offer. Your move, Kettlehead.

Ranking Every Game of the Mike Bobo Era, #38
2018 Boise State, Friday Night Lights-out

  • Final Score: Colorado State 28, Boise State 56
  • Line: Colorado State +23.5
  • Venue: Albertson’s Stadium

Friday night, national TV audience on ESPN2. What could go wrong?

Everything. Everything could go wrong. Just look at this 4th-and-36 (4th-and-36!!) play:

Lol, down 21-0 after that shit? Might as well load up the buses and leave town.

By the way, it wouldn’t have made a difference in the grand scheme of things, but I’m pretty sure you’re not allowed to do this:

Or this:

But who am I to doubt the competence of world-class Mountain West officiating?

The Rams would have gone into halftime down 35-0 if not for a last second bomb to Preston Williams. I don’t know if you can even call this a Hail Mary because he was so wide open:

What the hell is the Boise safety doing there? You have one job on that play! That safety doesn’t know his ass from his elbow. (I did it, Dana G!)

We’ve recently gone over the illegally touched Hail Mary against Utah State and the two Hail Marys that came up short against Toledo. Those plays would have been game winners. It really is classic CSU to complete a Hail Mary while down 35-0.

Nothing much else to say about this game, other than this bullshit:

It just wouldn’t be a Bobo Era loss without a boner in the kicking game to cap things off.

Good news is that this is the last game in the countdown where the Rams give up more than 50 points. And we’re down to only nine losses left overall!

Here is a condensed version of the game if you hate yourself and want to watch it:
