    All of the CSU goodwill and spending is going to come to a crashing halt next year when the football team gets boat raced the entire season. Bottom line is that CSU does not have the alumni commitment to get to the next level.
    This is a shame because Ft Collins shouldn't be a notch below Stillwater, Ames, Manhattan, Waco or Lubbock. But, alas, they are far, far below those B12 communities when it comes to college football. In fact, they are atleast 12 years behind when it comes to knowing when to react to the realities of the modern college athletic world.

    They've been asleep at the switch, and may have missed the window to save their own butts.

    Maybe they'll pull it off under Captain Jack and Sparkles and maybe they are just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
    Colorado football is not a matter of life and death; it's more important than that.

    The Titanic was real, by the way. Not just a movie. WTF?

    Well who else would join instead? I may be biased but the only teams I see as stronger contenders are Louisville (committed to Big East??) and idk who after that.
    Considering they went as far east as West Virginia with their last expansion, you can't discount poaching the Big East again. Maybe Cincinnati.

    Big issue is that in those other places people care. Ft. Collins for the most part couldn't care less about CSU. I wouldn't be surprised if their aren't more people from FtC in attendance at each Bronco game than there are at a CSU game. In those other places, holes that they are, the college football team means something. It is the identity of the town and the main interest.

    As much as we may all wish it wasn't so college football is a business, it is all about revenues. If CSU presented a legitimate argument to a major conference that they could generate revenues for themselves and the conference they would not be on the outside. The numbers show otherwise and so they are digging in their fingers as they go over the cliff.

    @VicLombardi: Not gonna lie. This Eustachy press conference is a bit odd. He just said something about kissing an old man in a leprechaun costume.

    Very funny considering Lombardi is a graduate of Notre Dame and therefore no stranger to odd leprechaun fanboi behavior.

    Maybe you are on to something. But what strikes me about gameday in Lubbock or Stillwater or Manhattan or College Station or Lincoln or Lawrence is that the roads in and out of town on gameday are bumper to bumper for miles and miles. Those small towns are magnets that draw in fans from miles and.miles away. It's not the town of Lubbock that fills in Jones Stadium. It's fans driving into town from OKC and Dallas and population centers several hundred miles away.

    Oklahoma State University has had advertising billboards in Houston Hobby airport. Houston is far as far from Stillwater as FtC is from Kansas City. People are hopping on SWA and flying to Tulsa and driving 90 miles to Boone Pickens stadium because they love their football team.

    It's not Stillwater that shows up for Okie Lite. It's their alumni from hither and yon.

    Ft. Collins is a far superior town than any of the B12 ****holes I've mentioned. But the football culture just isn't there. The alumni support isn't there. The institutional support isn't there.

    CSU measures themselves against CU, which bit them in their asses. The fan culture at CU is unmatched by state standards. But by Big 12 standards, CU was no where near the same page as any B12 south school when it comes to the facilities arms race and success first culture. Hopefully CU learned its lesson and won't dally around in the Pac12. Colorado is incredibly blessed to be in a big boy conference with big boy TV contracts.

    Poor CSU has none of that. And their road to survival depends on fan passion. It looks like CSU is in a vortex. This new AD is trying like hell to pull up the nose of the plane. But might not have enough monetary power or fan lift to keep from crashing.

    Here is the Moby upgrades.

    As a side note: The graphic depictions of their concourse and hilariously hideous.
    What are you talking about? They took the time to put in every single fan in attendance. That's some quality work right there....

    So the Kroenke/eustachy link just got a little stronger/stranger....

    Kiszla and Bret Bearup (stan kroenke right hand man and former nuggs "untitled consultant") are going back and forth on twitter about the hire, with Bearup defending Eustachy.

    There is deffinitely some link here.
