    I was listening to the fan on the way home and Big Al sounded like he knows nothing about CU football. He said the only team we beat last year was CSU and HaLkins never went to a bowl game. D-Mac called him out on both and D-Mac is an idot too. ****ing sports radio in Denver.

    Sounds like Big Al has been hitting the sauce a little early today. He doesn't do himself any favors by coming across as a guy who doesn't pay attention to the very thing he's supposed to be an expert on.

    OTOH, that never hurt Jim Rome. So maybe it's not such a bad deal.

    It's one of those "never meet your heroes type of things." Actually I've met Big Al many times and he is such a great guy. I don't like him on the radio but I'd rather have him than another Northeastern transplant.

    I just need to stop listening. everyday he says stuff that is wrong. Now when he says stuff that might be right I don't know if it is true or not. I guess that is the state of the media now-a-days.

    I won't listen to those two. Too bronco-centric for me. He should know better than to get his facts on CU that badly wrong, but I think those guys are all a little butthurt at CU (I include CJ and Klatt---look at his comments in the first of the Rick George start series) for firing Water Bottle.....which amazes me with especially Klatt (who did two of our games last year)...The only tolerable sports radio IMHO is Sandy Clough and the fans new morning show.......Lombardi is hilarious.

    CJ and Kreckmen was good. I liked that show.
    Ofcourse ESPN Radio in Denver is idiots, so they droped that and put CJ with Les Shapiro (who is a moron), and put Kreckmen with Gary Miller (hes OK) and Tom Nalen, who says some of the dumbest **** I have ever heard.

    I wish they would bring back Vic and Gary, and put CJ and Kreckmen back together.

    You can't turn on Alfred. He is one of the greatest Buffs ever, and is a really good dude. Certainly has done more for our program than anyone here.

    He gets a lot more leeway than this before I start to criticize him on places like here.

    +1.

    Vic is good, but Evans is so bad I can't listen.
    Les is nothing short of awful and insanely arrogant.
    Miller is not good without Vic and drags down Kreckman.
    Al is so checked out in regards to CU/living in the past as a former Bronco/in all cases a players advocate, that he is difficult to listen to.

    I never thought I would write this, but Sandy Clough is somehow the best we have in Denver. I also think Goodman and Hastings are OK because they routinely have good guests.

    I guess being disappointed that Big Al, as a CU Alum that cover sports for the most popular sports radio station in Colorado, not knowing easy facts about CU is now considered a hater.


    Go **** yourself BB2.

    I have been on the beat for quite a while now and have never seen Alfred Williams at a CU practice.

    I keep saying it over and over again, but CU football desperately needs new voices, new blood, and new victories. Love the guys from the championship team, but that was 23 years ago.

    Coach MacIntyre can't get us back to bowl games soon enough.

    Alfred Williams is a great Ambasador for CU football. Butkus winner, Super bowl winner, College hall of famer. He is now a success with the fan. He is a down to earth guy, funny dude, he is the type of guy that you enjoy having drinks with at the bar or at a party.

    That and we should trust anyone who ever was a good buff a long time ago. Without question.

    I just can't listen to Al and that DMac guy anymore. Al is a great guy. He at least says that CU is his greatest love, and I believe him. So, apparently he, like Klatt, must be out to prove he isn't a homer because all their show is is Bronco talk. Every day. In season, off season, whenever. One thing nice about having four sports shows to listen to on the way home is that I can usually avoid Bronco talk.

    You guys don't have to agree with Alfred. But he doesn't owe any of you ****ers anything. He also can say whatever he wants about he Buffs. Fact of the matter is, he gave a big chunk of his life to the program directly. You don't like him, don't listen to him.

    ^^This. Best radio show in town IMO.

    Buffs will be a more prominent topic on the show once they earn it...until then, I'm certainly not going to judge a radio show for not constantly talking about how Shi++y they are or the latest bad news story out of CU. Al gets off topic and frequently mixes up his facts, but that's Al being Al and part of what makes that show entertaining. Al is a true Buff and the last 7 years have been forgettable, can't blame him for not having his facts straight on a team that few can bear to watch.

    Like I said, I love the guy. Just don't like his radio show when all they discuss are the Broncos. If I flip over and they are talking CU football, I'm all in. Thats what I do. Any show that is talking Broncos, I go look somewhere else. And I love the Broncos. Just sick of how they dominate the scene here.

    So, this is DMac? I heard that at a Bronco's presser, he had to stand on a chair to ask a question. :rofl2:

    On the other side of this coin, at least they know Broncos football. Vic Lombardi and Sandy Clough are the only guys in town who can talk basketball. And Sandy can be hard to listen to on Nuggets talk since George Karl is like his best friend. Big Al and Dmac are just atrocious talking any basketball, NBA, College, anything. They are completely clueless and I can't listen to more than 20 seconds.

    That is all I'm saying. I love Big Al but it hurts to hear him on the radio.
