    Please post your favorites games/memories from past Kansas games, trips to Lawrence, what you will miss about them, etc. Series record: Colorado leads 42-24-3, the series started in 1903 with a 12-11 loss in Boulder.

    My favorite memory is going to the 1991 game. #14 Colorado won 30-24 in a complete snowstorm and a heart attack of a game. Kansas went up 10-3 with (Buff killer) Tony Sands providing the TD, but Lamont Warren threw a 48 yd TD to Charles Johnson to tie it at 10 at the half. I thought we'd blow then out in the 2nd half, but Kansas came right out and Chip Hillary threw 2 TDs to make it 24-10 Jayhawks. The Buffs KO return team coughed up the ball after it was 17-10 (short field for Kansas) and then again after they made it 24-10, but the Buffs D held. Vance Joseph went to work, and the Buffs went 80 yards down 24-23 for the winning TD, Joesph to Westbrook.

    The loss in '95 still pisses me off.

    My biggest KU memory was the snow bowl in 91. Not the coldest game, but probably the heaviest snow fall during a game in my lifetime. The tractors couldn't keep the snow off and you couldn't tell the yard markers. Vance Joseph rallied us from behind.

    That's your answer to everything.

    No, seriously folks, it is. I've had dinner with 96 and his family more times than either of us can count.

    Buffsoldier: "Can you pass the potatoes?"
    96: "**** Kansas."
    Buffsoldier: "O.k."

    talk about the talent Mac had. Lamont Warren leaves early, gets carries right off the bat in the NFL, has a nice NFL career.... but was going to be #2 behind Salaam at CU.

    Vance Joseph-- excellent athlete!!

    Ya know...I think he's still coaching DBs in San Francisco, haven't heard his name for a position on the next staff... (seems like we've heard every other CU player from that period). But VJ's got some nice coaching experience

    Snowiest game in 1991 was about 2 weeks after the coldest game in 1991.... the Nebraska game was -19 degrees that year and they were only a few weeks a part...

    what a freshman year (1991) for games....

    lost to Baylor
    really cold Nebraska
    really snowy home finale....

    He left on not such good terms if memory serves. Sleeping with a student or something like that was the rumor.
