Kubiak’s Son Falls Before Colorado State – University of Houston Game

Klint Kubiak, son of Head Coach Gary Kubiak and safety for Colorado State, fell to a knee during pre-game warm-ups. He was originally believed to be suffering from a heat stroke, but when he was rushed to the hospital with mother and father, Rhonda and Gary, doctors found he was suffering from a bleeding ulcer and high blood pressure stemming from medication Klint was using for his hip alignment.

Although Klint will return to Colorado today, Lubick is not too confident he will be back for Saturday’s game against TCU. “He’s resilient and I know that Klint wants to play. I don’t know how fast you recover from those things. Maybe if Klint got back and got some practice in Wednesday, maybe he could. I would say we should prepare that he would not be playing.”

CSU HC Sonny Lubick said replacing his starting safety would be difficult. “The game doesn’t go that way,” he said. “You can’t bring a guy in and in three days teach him how to play strong safety or free safety.”

The Rams are now 0-3 this year, and have 10 straight losses dating back to last year. They have the second worst pass defense in the Mountain West Conference, and this injury sets them back further for another long season.
