    Hey Guys,

    First off let me start by saying, I'm happy to write a post again. I check Allbuffs multiple times a day, but just haven't had anything to add myself as of late. I think its because everyone on here is so damn good at finding the new commitments, football article etc. about our beloved Buffs.

    I did find something that absolutely disgusted me this morning. I literally almost threw up all over my bedroom. I am from Hawaii and chose to go CU over many other West Coast schools (UCLA, Oregon, USC, UW). Maybe my mom running track at CU had something to do with it, or maybe it's because I fell in love with the campus and feel. Thats beside the point. What I am getting at is that I am an '11 grad. I have been through the thick and thin with our football team. I've been told Hawkins was our savior and that Embree who bled black and gold would lead us to the promise land only to be let down. I wasn't fortunate enough to be at CU during the glory days, but I can tell you that I haven't missed watching one football game since my Freshman Year. I can't wait to reap the benefits of not being a fair weather fan when our new regime gets us to where we want to be!

    So with all this being said, no I am not delusional. I saw CSU crack the Top-25 last year. I know they were "good." Ugh, I absolutely hate saying those words. But, let us not forget they play in the Mountain West, not the PAC 12 South. We also have owned them historically. The Rocky Mountain Show Down is still 62-22-2 in our favor.

    That brings me to the article I read about which college football team owns each state. Click Here for Article.

    I know we haven't been as good lately, but we are still Colorado and we own our state!

    : shrug :

    This happens every 3 years when CSU wins the previous years game.

    This is what happens when we let them win a game here and there.

    Having nothing to say should never stop you from posting.

    Author is an idiot.

    Pays no attention to level of competition. As another example he picked Northern Illinois over Illinios and Northwestern. Yes Northern beat Northwestern last year but if the schools switched schedules how well would Northern do in a season in the B1G.

    Almost as lame as mentioning a Sun Belt school Arkansas state as supposively having been better than Arkansas when Arky was down at 4-8.

    This is pretty funny. There is no one who would take this article seriously. The CSU talk is used to make it a point how bad we have done recently, not to point out how good CSU is.

    Not sure why Air Force didn't get it. I mean, they beat CSU last year and have been consistently solid for a long while.

    The part I find more annoying about that article is right above the Colorado paragraph, is his explanation for picking USC in California:

    The ****er bends over backwards to rationalize not picking UCLA, who whooped USC last year. If he'd watched any games he might realize that losing Brett Hundley might not be that big of a blow.

    But for Colorado it's, "Well, CSU won last year, and they were good under the coach that just left, so...".

    I just hate to see stuff like this

    The most recent history to base his rankings upon would be the 2014 season.

    Head-to-Head: CSU 31 - CU 17

    Common: CSU 49 - UH 22
    CU 21 - UH 12

    Common: UU 45 - CSU 10
    UU 38 - CU 34

    Other P5 Opponents: CSU 24 - BC 21 @BC
    CU went 0-9

    CU clearly played the harder schedule, but CSU won the head-to-head and went into Boston to beat a bowl team on their home field. Clearly, CU is the historical leader but coming off of last season CSU is the leader until CU can knock them off.

    The beauty of it is that this will be determined on the field.

    Then why are we favored by everyone and every national writer is expecting us to go 4-0?

    Meh. Click bate by CBS.

    This just becomes more locker room bulletin board material that will fuel the 2015 Buffs to "over achieve" and prove the h8rs wrong.

    CU has the P12 exactly where we want them, with each opponent penciling a W now and regretting it later.

    Everyone knows CSU trails CU in big structural issues like season ticket sales, facilities, conference affiliation, network exposure, revenue, location, history, future, and so on and so forth.

    Glad to have a 2011 grad from Hawaii mixing it up here. This place can use some fresh perspectives.

    Good point. I was wrong, CU beat CSU last season. CSU lost to BC last season. CU went undefeated in conference play last season. CU went bowling and CSU stayed home last season. WTF?

    You know the answer to that. The last time the two teams met on the field CSU won. That's not conjecture, but rather a datum.

    This is your most compelling post to date, regarding why we need a "WTF?" button.

    - CU will over achieve this season because of this CBS article?
    - CU has the P12 right where it want's them?
    - CU is better than CSU even though CSU won the last game because CU has bigger toys?
    - The dude said he was a CU grad, living in HI, not a HI grad.

    WTF?
    WTF?
    WTF?

    Am I the only one who thinks we could use less Hawaiians on the site? These people put pineapple on their pizzas. PINEAPPLE!

    Bulletin Board material is just an incentive to over achieve. Won't MAKE them do it.
    Most of our games this season, our opponent will be looking ahead to the next week. Helps us.
    CU is historically better than CSU in pretty much every facet. Ya they won last year. We still own the series 62-22-2.
    Correct.

    - Big Jim doesn't understand Skidmark's sarcasm after lurking and arbitrarily "liking" posts for 9 months?

    WTF?

    The pineapple juice gets into the cheese so you can't even "just take it off if you don't like it."

    Yes. I want to know who keeps leaving Spam out for them.
