    Did not watch a Buff game for the first time in literally decades. I assume we lost and got our asses kicked....duh.

    I try to focus on seeing how well the young guys are progressing. But it stops being entertaining for me when it's completely non-competitive. It got that way quickly.

    Folsom was empty of most Buffs fans by the start of the 4th. Students were completely gone.

    It reminded me of going to the UW game because of the sarcastic cheers that went up when we made a couple of plays. We're sooooo far away that it is hard to get emotionally invested.

    If you get really bored, come on down here and I will take you to competitive girls soccer games on Saturdays. All sorts of fireworks. Tons of fun, guaranteed.

    Literally.....sideline brawls with parents. Gotta love it.

    Too simplistic. But pretty close....

    I wish I had a picture. There was a parent on the other team today, a complete doosh, who was wearing sweats tucked into his boots. Rep to anyone who can replicate that visual....

    I've mentally prepared myself so I'm not remotely surprised when we get pounded up the ass week after week, but it doesn't mean it doesn't pain me immensely to see our once proud program in such a state. I would hope everyone would feel the same way

    Its embarrassing but if you have that opinion in the chat room, Highlander will tell you are a bad fan.


    BTW according to him I enjoy to see CU lose and I want Embree fired. Fun Times.

    That was quite a fight in chat today. You really cleaned it up at halftime and came out strong in the second half

    :lol: I actually thought it was quite amusing until he said I wanted Embree fired.


    BTW if I give up CU Football I'd have nobody to tell Greg Brown sucks as a DC (well anyone who wants to listen or cares) other than my small Kenmore fridge that keeps my beer cold. Even the cats are tired of the Buffs.

    We usually go out to the tailgate and "regroup" at half when the games aren't competitive... Today we didn't come back in.

    I wouldn't call it apathy because I still care, and I still pay $$ to go to games. But this 2011 team has zero chance against anyone, so we've gone to just making jokes and laughing through the home games to keep ourselves from crying. It's hard to comprehend our level of suck.

    We discussed such things as why scoring only a safety is actually better than scoring only a FG. That's where we're at right now.

    I currently have the idea that this game is rock bottom. ASU may end up being dicks, but I am hopeful the young guys will grow from this game on and we'll only see improvement from here. I don't know if we'll get any home runs on this recruiting cycle or even the next one, but we'll build a foundation and solid depth which will just get us back to respectability.

    I don't think we are serious competitors next year, and in 2013 we will be more middle of the pac, but I think we are going for the south title in 2014 assuming recruiting goes well...though you know what they say about assumptions.

    We need patience, but it is about 1,000,000 times harder than watching a pot of water boil

    Do teams like Vandy, WSU, Indiana, Duke, and ISU think that it's just a couple of years until they are in the mix? Or do they think we're pretty much here to stay. Football is not really a priority at my school.

    At WSU, there's hope. They've had Top 10 seasons in the non-to-distant past. For the others, the hope is that a new regime could get them to bowl games and fun seasons. They're not dreaming of conference championships.

    If CU is competing for a division title in 2014 it will be because the recruiting class for 2013 is much, much stronger than what 2012 is shaping up to be; note that our recruiting class is ranked near the bottom of the pac-12. That isn't going to be good enough to win a division of which USC is a member.

    that is what pisses me off the most, we knew that we weren't getting experienced coaches, but we were promised great recruiters and top 25 classes.

    Coaches that nobody else wants + players that nobody else wNts is not exactly a sound foundation for future growth.

    yepo, on Oregon's last drive, I could hear Oregons coaches yelling at their players on the field. Reminded me of watching a scrimmage.
