CU adding Fresno St. to 2011-13 football schedules

Discussion in 'Colorado Football Message Board' started by RSSBot, May 30, 2008.

    The Colorado football program postponed a planned home-and-home series with Louisiana State in 2011 and 2012 and replaced it by renewing a series with Fresno State.

    crap-

    I was looking forward to a Baton Rouge road trip ....

    this will probably look like the Buffs are 'chickening out'
    of the series & I don't like that-

    Why the hell did we want to get out of the home-and-home series with LSU?? :wtf: Here's a chance to play a high-profile team nationally, something CU has never steered away from, and they cancel it. I don't get this one. :confused:

    What do you want USC, LSU and Ohio ST. There are good schedules and then there are suicide schedules. Lets not over do it.

    Unless Craig Ochs comes back for the 2011 season, I think we'll be able to handle it this time.

    Who's to say that by 2011 LSU is going to be in the bottom of the SEC while Fresno St has always been good, yet average team. They are fun to play (except in 01) and it will make for an exciting game.

    We get a 2 for 1 with a pretty decent program. I'm pretty sure the decision to postpone the series with LSU was a mutual one with the schools because I have seen some discussion about LSU and USC possibly scheduling a series.

    Fresno has a fine program, but they're not anywhere near the caliber program that LSU is.

    I have no issues with this. Fresno can put a scare into some teams, and let's face it, A LOT of major programs have been ducking programs like Fresno.

    There's a reason that big teams don't want to play them. It's because if you lose to them you look like a chump and if you beat them, you get nothing out of it. It's kinda like playing someone like Oregon State, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Purdue, or Ole Miss, but you don't get to play a BCS team. I don't like it...

    I think you can get something out of it. Fresno always has the potential to go 9-3 or 10-2. If you hand them one of those Ls it does look good. If you blowout 3-9 NC or 1-11 Ole Miss who gives a sh!t.

    I am with you on this, they put the fear of god in USC in 2005, that was one of the greatest games I ever saw. **** they have been ranked more nationally than we have in the past few years.

    You're not going to get any of those teams in a 2 for 1 agreement though. Bohn did a very good job here IMO.

    2011
    @ Hawaii
    Cal

    2012
    CSU
    @ Minnesota
    Utah

    2013
    @ CSU
    Minnesota
    @ Utah

    Great move, cu would have played at hawaii,come home for cal and then to lsu. That would have been murder. Worried about people saying cu is ducking them? Right,year after year we play schedules that guarantee you a loss or two and we should worry about this? No thanks,it's a good move and they are going to re-schedule the series later so we still get LSU in the near future.

    Damn, some of you would like a OOC schedule of.....

    CAL H
    LSU A
    GEORGIA H
    FLORIDA STATE A

    That would be awesome, who cares about the players and giving them a chance, as long as our too good for anyone other than top 25 fans are happy everything is good:cry:

    CU is playing CAL, we can't play 2-3 bcs teams while others are playing 1 or none.Give the kids a chance,it's about them.

    Agree 100%. If 3 bcs teams are a must play UNC, NCST and Duke (wow ACC sucks). See how entertaining that would be. I'd rather watch a decent team like Ball State then these teams.

    :cry::cry::cry:


    That says it all. HELLO? We ARE NOT beating these teams,WE ARE LOSING YEAR AFTER YEAR.

    You'd rather cu lose to a top 25 team than get a WIN. Brag about our tough schedul and then use it as an excuse why we have ANOTHER losing season.

    F#$KING BRILLIANT.

    They take one game off the schedule and it's a whine fest.
