    Ok. SO i live in colorado Springs. I read "The Gazette" at work, which is our bigger news paper down here. And there was an article on Colorado Sports and college football. I think it was called. "The Future Of Colorado Sports." Now I looked for it online but couldn't find it, so I will have to paraphrase this crackpots projection.

    "In 2010 the Number 1 in the nation (12-1) Air Force Falcons will Host Nebraska also 12-1 For the national championship. "..

    .....
    :sad2:

    Are you Kidding me...? No mention of Colorado Buffs. And to give his futuristic Kudos the Nebraska... WTF...

    Anyone else see this >....<
    ????
    If someone finds the link too or finds it online please post a link. i will keep looking.

    The Gazette is a joke and has been for years. If you think the Rocky has problems the Gazette makes them look like a model of business stability. It has been losing readers at a rapid rate and the management refuses to invest in anything to save it.

    They hate the Buffs because they represent everything the MWC wants and doesn't have. They kiss kNU *** because there are a ton of escapees from that cesspool in Colorado Springs.

    Hahaha. Yea.... Well honestly what i am upset about is just the fact that I don't think, since i have been alive colorado as a state has not recognized CU as it's premier team. not once. And look... I know afa is our military team, and no one could ever find a good reason to root against them , (eh...) but i am having a hard time being happy for them, or for CSU. call it selfish. But them in the spotlight with Nebraska does NOT make me excited.

    Maybe I should send a gift sub of the Lubbock Avalanche Journal. I grew up with the Gazette in the house and hate Routon to this day. Then I came here to paradise and took the Av Journal for about a year. It was all I could stand. Spent some extra dough for good quality high speed and that was the end of that. The biggest gripe I had with the Gazette as a kid was never enough Buff news. It sounds like things haven't changed

    It's hard to blame them for being a homer for the home team. If you lived if Fort Collins you think the Buffs would get more play up there?

    When I was an intern at The Gazette in the mid 90s it was a great paper. It has some Pulitzer winners on staff. But I got there right at the end. We covered Air Force AND The Buffs every home game. At that time they looked well beyond the Springs at the state as their coverage area. Unfortunately, that was also the beginning of an industry wide trend to ignore larger stories and focus on more local stuff. My first staff job was at the Greeley Trib. Everytime I went to Denver to cover some event they told me to find a "Greeley angle" or make sure someone from Greeley was in the picture. :rolleyes:

    I imagine they do although they are always offering free ones at King Soopers.

    They used to give out free DP's at King Soopers. I would always say, "sure I'll take one". Inevitably, they would ask if I subscribed, to which I would respond, "no". Then the pitch for a subscription was made. I would say I'd subscribe if they would deliver for free. The DP wasn't worth anything to me, I would explain, but because I was a nice guy I'd increase their circulation if they'd just drop it by my house for free instead of having to grab a free copy at KS.:smile2:
