    Straight from the Coach himself,

    "I definitely think we'll surprise some people this year. There is no doubt that a lot is not expected of us. I joke around that we're supposed to finish 13 in a 12 team league. We'll need our fans to help will us to a couple of victories. That's the great thing about being Buff, I've been a part of some great games. That's from our fan base. We'll need them to help us this year."

    As fans I think, it is not only our job to show up and pack Folsom every Saturday, but our job to create something that the team, fans, and alumni can rally behind. Something that gets our team fired up and makes other teams want to hide. FSU has the war chant, Utah has the Muss, Florida has the chomp, ASU has the shocker, and the Trojans have some silly V thing. I feel it would do CU good to develop something like that to use at not only football games but all sports. New conference means new traditions.

    Anyone have any ideas??

    Raise both of your middle fingers and put them on the sides of your head like buffalo horns while screaming obscenities and charging old ladies.

    Or we can all turn out backs to the field, pull down out pants, and spread out buttcheeks apart.

    considering it is pretty much solely from the student section (at least that can be heard) and that is makes is so our students, and band dont get as much TV exposure as they could...

    And how about some better looking cheerleaders? We have to have the worst ratio of attractive cheerleaders to attractive student body.

    The hot ones dance for the express, unfortunate because we are forced to look at the cheerleaders the most...

    Not going to lie, I laugh at U$C and ASU fans when they do stuff like the V sign and the shocker. CU doesn't need a lame gimmick like that.

    There was some old tradition called the Buffalo Stomp or something that was so effective it was banned because there was danger of the bleachers collapsing.

    As you get older they get more and more attractive. Why do you think so many of us bring binoculars?

    I don't think we need to create anything - we have something we already take for granted - ALTITUDE!

    With EB's ground attack our fans should be salivating at the chance to heckle the first opposing D-lineman to go hand's on hips while wheezing his way back to the line of scrimmage. Make a chant that even ten thousand could unleash together at the first signs of exhaustion and those players would really be looking for a place to hide.

    Yes, Gimmicks are ghey. I always mocked the Baylor "bear claw," the longhorn thing, KSU saying "firstdown/touchdown", Kansas' "wheat", Nebraska's douchbaggery, red raiders' "guns"

    They're all retarded.

    Make noise, give the other team the bird, throw urine bombs. Annnnd done. What more do you want from us?

    I say we do the wave whenever something important is happening. This makes sure our fans are paying attention to the crowd and not the game. We can also watch for when the wave hits the visitor's section so we can all boo.

    Piss Balloons. Also storming the field - we should do this after every game...including losses and road games.

    Hand signs are the gheyest of ghey. If they want a full stadium at kickoff, they should bring back beer sales. The crowd arrives late because they're all finishing off their beverages. It wouldn't hurt to figure out a way to get the students into the stadium a little more efficiently, either.

    Not only does the crowd arrive late, but they leave at halftime and often forget how to get back. It is a joke at how the student section reaches its max capacity for the game from the start of the second quarter to halftime regardless of the score. Having beer sales at football games would make a tremendous amount of money too.

    I'm just spitballin' here.

    Maybe someone can create a message board on the web that supports the university of Colorado athletic department. It would seek participation from all Buffs.

    The site could be the place to talk CU football. Nothing is off limits (except racial slurs). It would be a place to talk recruiting, post news articles, generate opinions, coordinate tail gating, and basically project a fan presence on the web that is both informative and fun.

    If we're lucky, maybe this message board will attract a dozen or so 35 year olds who say a bunch of incestuous inside jokes.

    I know it would be cool to have some place to discuss uniform colors, and hues of gold like Krylon and pantone #871-874 (#871 FTW). It's also important to discuss blackouts, gold rushes, and coordinate the perfect salt 'n pepper + butter look that defines game day in Colorado.

    I think it'd be cool to have a place to voice opinions about recruiting defensive ends, kickers, nepotism, and road graders. We want to focus on the big things, like sending a big "**** You!" to enemies of the program.

    Maybe the sight could find someone with season tickets could host a tailgate for members. A raffle that gets tickets into the hands of more fans would be cool.

    Other forums for basketball and maybe a pub to discuss off topic issue might be cool. But nothing about soccer, please.

    If such a place existed, maybe it could be used to figure out more ways to support the Buffs and help HCJE win some games.

    I would love a place like that...


    To everyone else, I understand some of those gimmicks are indeed overused, stupid, and sometimes embarrassing (see Nc State Wolfpack and to some extent the ASU shocker). However there are some undeniable football powerhouses that do have some gimmick, that when done correctly creates an environment that no visiting team wants to play in. I grew up watching FSU, and when that war chant gets going through the whole stadium, it sends a chill, and it is obvious that the offense on the field is made uncomfortable by it and that FSU's defense steps up their game. At Utah their fans have caused the most third down false starts in NCAA history. All they do is jump and yell (MUSS Jump) on third downs but it works and makes it a pain in the ass to play there. The whole point was to see if anyone on this site had an idea of what we could do in the stands to help fire up the team and demoralize the opponent. Under Cabral's stint as HC the band played buffalo heart beat on the drums, something former players on this site would probably recognize, but when its just the band its not very impressive. Piss bombs and middle fingers work great for opposing fans, but not so much against the players on the field.

    So what your saying is we need to start throwing the piss bombs towards the opposing players on the field?

    Genius!

    Since we are now in the uber-sophisticated Pacific Coast Conference they could also serve Chardonnay as well as beer.

    I have never seen the word "ghey." I am wondering what that means.
