I foresee a 3-0 buff team and a blacked out folsom.
Im just hoping we dont get embarrassed.
I like the blackout idea, but not against Georgia. The entire stadium wearing the other teams color would feel plain wrong! Plus, the blackout is far more effective when it is dark out. That time of year I'm guessing half the game will be played in daylight. We're going to have a few night games scheduled this season after we start rattling off wins, so we might as well save the black out.
Need a blackout game but I wish we would bring out the black helmets too, that would be the ****. Im ready for the AJ Green, JSmith matchup. He will find out what it's like to go up against a big NFL receiver in that one.
Agreed on the color scheme - CU should wear gold. CU fans in black & Georgia fans in red would be more welcoming than intimidating for the Dawgs.
Disagree on the other night games - the rest of our home schedule does not bode well for night games. Baylor? Tech? ISU? K-State? Which one would get moved for the sake of television?
didn't even think about the color aspect. hmmm, wear gold all you grey hairs.
Scout just put out their pre-season rankings and I was shocked to see them with Georgia at #3 behind only Bama and Ohio St. I thought they are a bit down, but someone really likes them. I know preseason rankings don't mean much, but 3 is crazy high. FWIW Cal is at #34, CU is at #50, Hawaii is at #86, and CSU is #101 just behind Troy. It's interesting to see some of the schools actually listed below the Buffs who they predict to go 7-5: UCLA, BYU, Okie St, Louisville, Air Force, and Houston.
The Big XII Championship will be a night game right? I know it's not a home game, but I can live with it.
nice, we are going to knock off a top 5 team.
i thought UGA was #21 in the coaches poll. 3 does seem a bit high.
Wasn't there a chance that CBS could have picked up the UGA game at the earlier time slot? I would have loved Verne L. calling the Buffs... Oh well, more Joel Meyers and Dave Lapham, at least it will be Natl.
I would doubt it. Its a home game, so its got to be ABC/Fox Sports. If it was in Georgia, then I'll bet CBS would have an option.
All black with a gold buffalo, that would look sweet. I believe Georgia was like #3 the last time we played them at their house. Need this one and dont think the players arent looking at it. Hope they remember the games before.
omg those two are insufferable. all dave lapham says is "wooow." i could do a better job than that hack.
All black, but silver helmets like we had in the throwback game last year... or perhaps reverse the colors on that helmet and make the horns silver...
Guys - this is the National Championship reunion game. We must wear the classic black top/gold pants/gold helmet. Otherwise, what's the point?
I don’t think we will really have a chance for a night black-out game this year. In past years Bohn has had games moved around so CU could earn more revenue from the Big 12 (last years CSU Sunday night followed by @Toledo on Friday night was a dumb money move). I really don’t see him being that flexible this year since we won’t get 50% - 80% of the revenue we earn at the end of the season. Once we start Big12 play I see Bohn making sure all the Buff home games start no earlier than 1:00pm MST, and no later than 5:00pm MST.
Then I would say the Georgia game, that would be a nice little twist considering they seem to dress in black for big games. Not that we will be a big game or anything. Welcome to Boulder AJ, then knock his mouthpiece out.
i'm a retard. this settles it.
