Midway through the season, Colorado State was legitimately disappointing. A competitive loss at Minnesota was far from embarrassing, but the Rams were unconvincing offensively in a 23-14 win over UTSA and unconvincing defensively in a 47-21 win over Northern Colorado. Losing by a combined 82-24 to Colorado and Wyoming was unacceptable.
The season swung with a 31-24 win over Utah State. The Rams Cheap Chelsea Jerseys trailed 24-10 at halftime. CSU played a nearly perfect second half, surged to win, and looked mostly fantastic the rest of the way.
Or it may have also been a function of drug rumors that swirled around the prolific passer and his partying ways in the Steel City. While Marino never publicly failed any tests, his Panthers were a team known for partying their ways. Marino’s agent, Marvin Demoff, admitted as much.
“People absolutely looked at it that there was a group of guys on the Panthers that just had too good a time,” Demoff said. “It was never about addiction.”
“[Marino] told me that the school had heard about a group of players Cheap Jerseys Direct Coupon using marijuana or drugs, and they internally tested all the players. They were all clean.”
Despite a lack of public evidence, talk of Marino’s partying persisted. Was it the reason why he lasted so long on 1983’s draft boards? Probably not — but the Dolphins were certainly happy with the outcome.
