ESPN's Chris Fowler and Twitter Nation on CU Buffs' humiliating loss to Fresno State

Chris Fowler, the host of ESPN's college football coverage, is a proud CU-Boulder alum -- or at least he was proud until Saturday, when the Buffs followed two desultory losses by getting destroyed 69-14 by the gridiron juggernaut from...Fresno State? So ashamed was Fowler that he had to wait a day before he was capable of sharing his thoughts on Twitter. And even then, his words weren't of the glass-half-full variety. Here's what he had to tweet.
