Cowboys lose to Toledo, Christensen says team needs to turn around

Sep 10, 2012

The Cowboys lost to Toledo Saturday 34-31.  It was a game that saw Wyoming turn the ball over three times, struggle on key third downs, and on defense. 

Head Coach Dave Christensen says the turnovers were the key to the loss and it’s something the team has to get corrected.  

But fans of the team were equally concerned about Quarterback Brett Smith who left the game in an ambulance after getting dragged down violently from behind late in the fourth quarter.  The play is a penalty and it’s called a horse collar.  On the play, Smith also took a shot to the head. 

While it looked like Smith had lost consciousness, Christensen said he was talking when he was on the ground.

“He wasn’t very happy.  First of all he was pissed at the guy the horse collared him.  He wanted to go back in and play and obviously that wasn’t gonna happen.”

Christensen says Smith appears to be ok, but it’s unclear when he will be cleared to play.  The Cowboys fall to 0-2 on the season.
