EAST HARTFORD, Conn., -- There weren't many rants last week during the Cowboys' dominating 45-12 win over Ball State.

Today ... was a different story.

Trailing for the majority of the day against a team that hasn't won a football game in literally 700 days tends to do that to a fanbase. Three come-from-behind victories in the first four games doesn't help, either.

This team keeps preaching about going 1-0 each week. Well, they did pull off the 24-22 win over UConn, but it's never easy, is it?

Here are today's rants and raves from the Wyoming faithful:



Twitter: What is going on with our kickoff unit? Every return against them has been huge this season. @WyoBS

Twitter: No passion or fire just sleeping walking. 30 yards in penalties already @307RicoShea

Twitter: Just a worse case scenario start for this O. Need to wake up @vinyard6565

Twitter: Pokes good at stopping themselves and making UConn look like 4-0 and not 0-4 thus far. @k_bomb

Twitter: I was fearful of a trap game. Too early but damn...not a good trend @komoval

Twitter: Offensive line... INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTING. 11 yards rushing against a terrible team like this is sad. @UW_Cowhumans

Twitter: This looks nothing like the Pokes from the last few weeks. Hope to boys shake it off and turn it around. @Wyolaskan

Twitter: UConn now tastes blood. We are in for a dogfight. @phxpoke

Twitter: Road play vs a team who should get spanked…hope the cardiac Cowboys get this act together! @clytanic13

Twitter: Pokes look like they have lost .5% focus per mile traveled to Connecticut. @chadcraig26

Twitter: Bad play. Bad play calling Bad officiating Bad first quarter Let’s turn this around @wyolaskan

Twitter: Oh my God this is embarrassing... @brianwyo1

Twitter: One team looks like they are in Connecticut for a football game. The other looks like they are on a tourist trip @clytanic13

Twitter: We need to be more disciplined! This is so frustrating to see us continue to beat ourselves. @jfgirl89

Twitter: I seriously can't believe how often we're shooting ourselves in the foot. Bohl better be lighting these guys up at halftime @vinyard6565

Twitter: Bohl has to be atomic @rnewton75

Facebook: John RandoThose asses better be a lot smaller after halftime...first time UConn has lead at the half since Nov 2019...

Facebook: Patrick FitzgeraldThe world needs more cowboy touchdowns, and I need more beer.

Facebook: Victor ReyesI swear to God if we lose to the ghost of UConn football

Facebook: Jason FergusonForget Cal-Poly and all that. This would be the worst loss in program history.

Facebook: Cody San MiguelAh yes, the whole: "play to the level of your inferior opponent until the last 3 minutes of the game" strategy. Never fails...except when it does

Facebook: Patrick FitzgeraldThose who stay......will be alcoholics.

Facebook: Drew JonesSwitching over to the heavy stuff aka the Banquets

Facebook: Kelsey Lyn KetelsenSorry guys. It's me....when I travel with the team, this is how it goes...it'll pick up in the 2nd half...cardiac Cowboys and all....



Twitter: About damn time!!!! @jerry_hansen1

Twitter: What a throw, what a catch! @D_Whelchel

Facebook: Jeff Green: Shouldn’t be losing to this team. Pretty embarrassing

Twitter: I'm having flashbacks of Tulsa 2019 @BugherJeff

Twitter: Not happy I woke up at 0430 to watch this mess. The Pokes must be sleepier than I am. @kdwright5407

Twitter: I’ve seen some terrible losses in my life but this may well be the worst. @rideoutb33

Twitter: I mean I blitz on every single play in NFL Blitz 2001 and it works perfectly- just saying haha @jfgirl89

Twitter: We are making UConn football look like UConn women’s basketball!! @TravisStevens11

Twitter: This team gives me the most anxiety @PJThomas307

Twitter: UConn finally playing like the worst team in the FBS. @warrengreenwoo3

Twitter: I’d make the defense walk to airport @mathews_chet

Facebook: Jerry K. WalkerI'll take a close ugly win any day over a loss of any kind. Hats off to the Pokes for pulling it off and a big tip of the hat to a very fired up young UConn team.

Facebook: Dan HaleyI’m now 72 years old though …

Facebook: Andrew BercichA very poor job of preparation by the coaches. To have this team sleepwalking and still 4-0 says something. I’m just not sure what.

Facebook: Patrick FitzgeraldI bumped my cable package up for this!!!! Time to go back to basic cable. Use the money for beer.

Facebook: Patrick FitzgeraldThe 4 quarters of what we learned today biblical version:

1. Thou does not have to take 3 years off your fans lives every game.
2. Thou will not read thy press clippings.
4. Thou will memorize the first 3 commandments of my post.

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, 7220Sports.com counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.

Don't agree with a selection? Feel free to sound off on our Twitter: @7220sports - #Top50UWFB
