    After talking about it in the WR thread, I decided to pop in the old VHS in the old VCR in the basement from that game. Man that brought back some memories. Colorado was truly a different team then. When you're on national TV and the announcer says, "And one of the biggest plays of the year in college football, Bienimey leaps.............TOUCHDOWN!!!!"

    And then at then end, "Bill McCartney, with a huge win! He has a big leg up on the big 8 title and the birth in the Orange bowl as his Buffaloes go to 8-1-1 and hand Nebraska it's first loss of the year, the cornhuskers now 8-1, the final score Colorado 27 and Nebraska 12."

    One of the best was how fired up the crowd got when the PA announced that #1 Virginia hd lost. The very next play Hagan was sacked and Memorial went crazy. Then Johnny Mitchell scored a TD to put NU up 12-0 and they show footage of husker fans celebrating on the sideline with one saying, "ORANGE BOWL, ORANGE BOWL! WE'RE GOING TO THE ORANGE BOWL!!":lol:

    Anyway, what memories, I was at that game and can't forget my dad grabbing my freezing brother int he 4th saying, "I don't care how cold you are, you have to see this!" And put him on his shoulders.

    Good times, good times!

    I was at that game and probably close to your bother's age, Leash. That was second only to the 07 game in terms of just miserably cold. Plus, we lost, just like 07, which makes it even colder, somehow. :sad1::smile2:

    I didn't find the 07 game all that cold... it was cold, but not bad. Then again, I had just arrived from Mammoth :lol:

    Despite driving my knee-injured arse to and from Neb in my mustang with 3 roommates and bringing way not enough in the way of jackets or raingear it was worth it. Such a triumphant comeback win.

    In 2007 I took one look at my ice coated bleacher seat grabbed my Dad and walked to the student section to stand all day. That was a great day because it was the first time both me or my Dad had seen Nebraska lose in Boulder and seemed to make my memory of that day a lot less cold. Ironically I had already seen CU win twice in Lincoln before 2007.

    It might've been the fact that I was tailgating at 7am...or, like Leash, that I had to chip the ice off of the bleachers. All I know is it took me half an hour afterward for my hands to feel normal again.

    The game in 07 was sick. I had like 20 layers of clothing on. We were making breakfast burritos over the stove at 7:30 AM and freezing our asses off. Then LB shows up in a freaking SKIRT and announces "it's not that cold".:wow:

    Mmmmmm. Sacky's breakfast burritos.:smile: I was just late enough that everyone had had their fill and wanted me to down two or three to clear out the food so they could put stuff away. Which I was happy to oblige with!!! And LB was wearing a skirt. Crazy. My legs were colder just trying to imagine bare legs in that cold for as long as she would have to endure.

    the best part of being at that game was chanting "we don't live in lincoln" at the end of the game and then getting escorted off the field by the cops after we nearly torn down their goal post. the scariest part was getting glass beer mugs thrown at us in the bar after I took issue with the fusker fans over their enjoyment and use of the "N" word.
