    I have never been to a bowl game before. My bro and I are pretty much set on going this year, no matter where they end up.

    I have been to two bowls. The '88 Freedom Bowl vs. BYU and the '91 Blockbuster Bowl vs. Alabama. Both losses:sad1:

    Ouch. I watched that Blockbuster Bowl with family down in Alabama (most of them big time Tide fans). Weird to see the Buffs playing a different offense.

    Damn, you were a year early twice.:smile2:

    No wonder it was so easy to find a seat.:lol:




    Actually, the O bowl was 1/1/90 following the '89 season and the Fiesta was 1/1/93 following the '92 season, but your point is well taken.

    Story about the Blockbuster bowl.

    My family had christmas vacation on the beach in Naples, Florida and after that we went to the Blockbuster bowl. We had been out of town all week so didn't know that Mac had changed the offense. We were just in total shock of the change at the game, it was like we were watching a different team.

    Also, that was the year CU and NU tied for the Big 8 championship and because CU had been to the Orange Bowl the last two years, Nebraska went. There were some husker players in their letter jackets at the Blockbuster bowl sitting right in front of us. Do you know who they cheered for? Bama. Another reason on my long list of why I hate the fuskers.

    I think what Boulder meant was the year after the '90 OB, the buffs went back and won. The year after the '93 Fiesta bowl, the buffs went back and won. So you were a year early both times as far as seing the buffs win.

    That's what I was going for Leash. Thanks for clarifying my post.:thumbsup:

    That Blockbuster Bowl was just a weird game. My dad at halftime: "What the hell is this offense we are running?":lol:

    I've been to the 2001 Fiesta Bowl (I still hate Joey Harrington with a vengeance), the 2002 Alamo Bowl (I hate U-Dub), and the 2004 Houston Bowl.

    I wanna go back to the Alamo :p

    At this juncture, the possibilities are endless. Everything from a BCS bowl (unlikely) to no bowl at all (improbable, but possible). We'll know a whole lot more after the next three weeks. Go 2-1 or 3-0 in those games and a Cotton Bowl or Holliday Bowl bid isn't completely out of the question depending on what some of the other schools do. 1-2 or 0-3 and we're just hoping to find somebody who will take us.

    I was in the Real Orange Bowl when the Buffs won it all. :smile2:

    I really liked the mascot and it foreshadowed my enrollment later that year.

    I was at the '91 Blockbuster Bowl - only time I've ever rooted against Alabama.
    I was also at the '93 Fiesta Bowl and hold Mitch Berger responsible for that loss to this day.

    Missed two or three PAT's and a couple of easy FG's and ended up losing the game by 2 points or something like that.

    Very frustrating.

    Very close, Sacky. Berger missed two PATs and a 20-yard field goal and we lost by 4, 26-22. Not that I remember it very well...:smile2:

    Impressive list! I'd have done anything to be at the two Orange bowl National Title games :thumbsup:

    My list goes as follows (being a band geek, I got to go to several)

    2001 Fiesta Bowl
    1996 Holiday Bowl
    1995 Cotton Bowl
    1994 Fiesta Bowl
    1992 Fiesta Bowl

    I'm stoked for the Buffs to be considered for a bowl this season. I'm really hoping they could pull off the Holiday Bowl but I know that's a bit of a longshot.

    How does anyone figure we are the BIG 12 No. 6 team. After OU, who we beat, and KU I think it's a toss up between MU, KSU and CU for 3rd.
