With A&M possibly being left behind - its time for CU fans to unite behind its state funded brother to ensure that the athletic dollars being thrown around don't head to Utah, but instead remain here in Colorado. Here is a case for the Rams as opposed to Utah. The Rams have competed before and could do it again.
MWC Titles: CSU - 3 Utah - 4
ESPN "Prestiege Ratings": CSU- 75 Utah - 43
PAC-10 Rival: CSU - CU; Utah - None
US News Academic Rankings: CSU - 128; Utah - 126
Athletic Revenue: CSU - $22,093,683; Utah: $26,949,805
Top 25 Finishes: CSU - 3; UTAH - 6
The state of Colorado and the CU program would benefit a great deal with CSU in the PacX. Screw Utah...if there is another seat at the "revenue" table - we should all be campaigning to keep that money here in Colorado. Not our neighbor to the West.
You sound like baylor!!
Thx for the Friday laugh. Don't worry. U have Boise to kick u around in conference rather than Utah and u still get your superbowl one game season versus CU.

Cue the 'George Jefferson kisses Archie Bunker' laugh track, this is a big one.

Why, the MWc is a shoe in for a BCS automatic bid, right?
And CSU is in the top 130 academic institutions
I mean, really, you are asking for abuse here. I know it has to hurt, CU has sucked gargantuan donkey balls on the field lately, and still, they are the first plum plucked off the tree come expansion time, by a premier conference nonetheless. Notice how NO ONE is talking about CSU? Keep climbing lil bro, one day it may happen. Safety school dreams can come true. Ask Baylor, oh wait, bad example.
