When you see history made it is a special moment and you are lucky to be there to see it. Ka'Deem ran into the record books and the champagne corks popped across the landscape to toast the records that had been broken. Never before had there been a performance like this one. Headlines ae written and people cheer and say "Man I was THERE when it happened".
And in all the fanfare, many fans watching the history being made on the field do not see the guys that made it happen, the offensive line. Every record setting yard that Ka'Deem made has a small star that you cannot see attached to it. And that star represents the names of those guys who blew the holes open, locked their guys up and stayed with their blocks. Ka'Deem worked his magic, but he rode on the shoulders of and outstanding offensive line performance.
Colorado was filling the box with every available man and Arizona ran anyway. I specifically watched my man Cayman get out on the Colorado linebacker for one of Ka'deem's early touchdowns. Cayman was on the guy and Ka'Deem found the crease and it was a touchdown. Magic, in the replay you see Ka'Deem do his thing, blow through the line, bounce to the left, sprint , bounce again, stride into the end zone. In the corner of the replay film you see 61 and the rest of the line driving Colorado players like toy trucks.
Perhaps the most symbolic moment to me was after the singing of Bear Down at the corner of the end zone. Players are celebrating a history making performance. celebration and joy. But if one looks out on the field you see Fabbians walking slowly to the locker room. Number 73, helmet off, tired, sore, walking alone while the cheers still ring out, deservedly so for Ka'Deem. First guy to the showers was one of the first guys to block a Buffalo on each and every play.
Bearing Down on we should all pause and give a big cheer for those guys who worked just as hard but were not seen by many
