    GOLD RUSH!!!! If you look at the student section on TV it looks awesome with all the gold/yellow shirts. Then they show the rest of the crowd and it looks like ass...white, black, some gold, some other random colors.

    UNITE WITH THE GOLD!

    BLACKOUT...

    Spread the word there is already a huge group on facebook with a bunch of people who will be wearing black. All black at night would be awesome. It's time to mix things up.

    So yeah word is that everyone is going to be wearing black.

    GO BUFFS!

    I heard it was a Blackout also. I think a black and gold mix won't look too bad. I wish they would coordinate this a little better.

    Well theres a huge student group on facebook already calling for blackout. People just need to follow through. Blackout for the night game would be awesome.

    While it is rare, i think its possible here. But the AD should be involved. Post it on CUBuffs.com. word of mouth is a powerful thing.

    The students are good. Its the rest of the fans that need to follow thru. I know alot of people don't use facebook. or even the internet. I think the university should post it on CUBuffs.com and take out an ad in the BDC.

    ****, it'll be a night game. Will the blackout even show up?

    Is it just me or is this whole conversation just a bit gay? Talking about color coordination?
    To hell with it, as long as I dont show up drunk and nude I'm set. Wait, scratch that, more like 80% drunk and 20% nude. Yeah that's the ticket.

    i thought it was pretty funny during the CSU game when the announcers would for umpteenth time talk about the stadium divided equally and all that stood out was the CU student section in our mustard yellows. that looked great.

    as for what Hawk wants, let him say it if that's what he wants. i'm a little tired of him trying to engineer his style of fan support and "tradition", to be honest. i like the guy but when you are 3-11 as a coach i don't think your main concern is re-writing a team/school history with "new traditions".

    win some games, less "aesthetic" tinkering.

    I can still feel my eyeballs burning off thinking about that horror show. But to be fair, think how epic those powder blues would have looked in the 50's or the 70's. I wonder if they make courdoroy jerseys. Now that would be sweet

    Black or Gold, just no white or grey. Which reminds me I need to pick up a new CU shirt for the game.

    quit your bitching about the yellow.....it unifies the students and looks good. all black would look great too....but the students already have a head start and a total of 1/3 of the entire stadium wear the same color....its all the mix and match rest of the crowd that looks like ass.

    the university even provides YELLOW pom pom/shakers are some games....just get with it....like EVERY OTHER FAN BASE IN THE NATION....

    each year more and more people switch to some form of yellow.....eventually you're going to look like those 4 or 5 d-bags in lincoln wearing white.....:wow:

    **** that ****. This is not aggy; we are allowed to wear whatever the **** we want. The only way clothing would have any difference on the game would be if the student section was naked and they moved the visitor's bench to the east side.

    And, for the record, yellow is teh stupid.
