The Rams lost this weekend, or did they? When people speak of
Rams’ success, a pigskin automatically pops into their mind, but
while the Rams’ football team was losing to the University of New
Mexico, the women’s volleyball team was keeping their undefeated
conference record by beating the University of Wyoming.
We think it is unfair that the school’s reputation and status is
decided on the number of wins and losses the football team has.
Not to discredit the football program, but a win or a loss
should not break or make a school or the entire athletics program.
We have a lot to be proud of at CSU.
We have been awarded close to $70 million in grants and gifts,
our women’s volleyball team is ranked 15th in the nation and we
have groundbreaking research being done on campus.
We understand that football is a major breadwinner for our
university, but it shouldn’t be the only indication of success for
We are as disappointed as anyone else that the Rams football
team lost, but that does not indicate there are not other aspects
of our university to applaud.
We want to applaud the volleyball team in another exciting, yet
not televised, victory at Moby Arena. Congrats on the women’s cross
country team placing second in the Mountain West Conference and the
men’s team placing third. We applaud the numerous departments that
received grants and gifts during the course of the semester.
There is a lot to be proud of at CSU. Hopefully parents saw a
few examples of this during the weekend. Not of all of CSU’s
successes make the headlines, but it doesn’t mean we are not
winners off the field.
