I'm 80% committed for the Arizona game. It doesn't look like they've sold out a home football game in a few years, so I'm not feeling the urgency to jump on tickets right now. OTOH, two years ago at Arizona Stadium, the CU game was second only to ASU in attendance.
Trying to work the road trip in with the NASCAR race in Phoenix and dozens of parks and monuments along the way (either route, through NM or Utah has too many to get in one trip).
57 days until the start of college football!
I plan on going to our bowl game this year.
Amen to that.
Yep, that's my away game
I'll play. Assuming wikipedia is correct, I'll plan to be there if we're invited to either the New Mexico Bowl or the Las Vegas Bowl. If the Buffs get invited to the Fight Hunger Bowl, I'll pass, assuming we'll be playing at Levi's next year for the PacCG. WTF is the Christmas Bowl (wiki link is to wrong page -- I'll fix it later tonight if I remember and nobody else does)? tried to visit the Christmas Bowl's official site and it was blocked by work IT for having "cult or occult related" content (disappointed that I can't immediately think of a humorous commentary to that). I don't know the tendencies of the decision maker's behind those bowls, but I'd assume there would be some motivation for CU to get invited to either the NM or LV for locality reasons, but not sure how much influence CU's alumni base in the Bay Area might have.
Boston here I come!
UMass...where my trip to the game is not only shorter in distance than CU's trip out east, but also shorter than the home team's commute to the stadium...
I'm in for UMass. It will be the furthest I've ever traveled into Yankee territory.
I'll be heading to Denver for the game.
UMass for me. Stoked for my first trip to Bahstun.
This will be my second road trip!
Well, my in laws live in Tucson and my son is moving to San Jose. Hmm.
UMass and maybe Cal.
Shooting for a Dick ***** visit at the U if Alcohol in early November.
You kids and your hip slang.
get off my lawn.
Massachusetts is NOT Yankee territory
I'm not talking baseball. I know they are Red Sox fans. I mean there won't be any sweet tea and no grits at the breakfast places. I will adjust and have clam chowdah with my hash.
I know, just be careful about the Y word in New England. Anyway just embrace the northernlands. Stacks of delicious pancakes with warm maple syrup, blueberry muffins, lobster and eggs if you're feeling adventurous. Seriously you can go without grits and sweet tea for a weekend.
Shut your mouth, carpetbagger.
I moved here when I was still a kid, my dad's the carpetbagger, not me.
Thinking about the non-Folsom schedule, Oregon is the only game that I'd be concerned about trying to find a ticket on gameday.
CSU -- you guys have posted extensively about the empty seats at recent neutral site RMS's.
UMass -- they're not even selling tickets to the upper level. near 0% chance of having troulbe finding a ticket on game day with the box office as a backup plan.
Cal -- they reduced the size of Memorial Stadium two years ago and still didn't sell out a single conference game last year (they did sell out OhHowIhateOhioSTATE).
USC -- also didn't sell out a single game last year. But even beyond that, I wouldn't normally have concerns finding a ticket outside of a 90k+ seat stadium for a regular season college football game with one of the teams being un-ranked (calling it now -- USC drops out of the top 25 by mid-October).
Arizona -- I already posted they haven't sold out a home game in over two years, but they do come close.
Oregon -- here's the problem ticket. ranked team, rabid college fan base without the distraction of pro-sports teams playing in a 54k seat stadium that regulary sells to above capacity. Oregon's road trip to Boulder last year was their least attended game of the 2013 season.
Bottom line message -- those who haven't started planning aren't too late. I don't believe that tickets will be an impediment to attending the games, except for Oregon.
Truth is, I mostly drink unsweetened anyway, I don't need the sugar. I look forward to the different foods. I'll probably look like the rube that fell off the turnip truck when I get there. But that's cool. I just wish it was a little later so I could see what fall in the Northeast looks like.
I'm planning to go to the Az game & if they make a bowl game I'll try to plan for that trip too.
im going bowling!....lane 12
Anyone know the Cal game section for Buff fans? I may go but will be a last minute deal.
