Dear Colorado State, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you how completely worthless you are. There has been a lot of talk from CSU fans this week about CU football, and a lot of it, deservedly so. Losing to Montana St. last year is inexcusable. But I would rather lose to Montana St 12 times and never win a football game ever again, then to have any affiliation with CSU. Now I understand that many of you hold grudges because you got turned down for admission into CU, but blame that on your stupidity, not on CU. I too would be bitter if I had to live in Fort Collins knowing that one of the best institutions in the country, located in one of the most beautiful cities in America, was just down the road, but that I wasn't good enough to get in. Spare me your dirty hippy speech because we have all heard that before. The only hippies I knew at CU were brilliant kids in the engineering department who drove new 4-runners. I know being open minded, questioning authority and being interested in sports, music and the arts may sound like a hippy to you, but to many, those are actually desirable traits. Now I admit that there is a good chance that CSU will beat us on Saturday, and if that does happen I will be the first to admit defeat, but what do you have to look forward after that? The fact is that we ARE your season. Sure you can look forward to that exciting Mountain West schedule and play times like Utah. CU will struggle this year, but even a BS scandal invented by the media cant keep us down. We have the coach and AD that will make us national contenders again, something CSU never has been and never will be. So in short, please stop running your mouth...you go to CSU for christs sake! some further info: CSU vs. CU 1. Nobel Prize Winners: CSU-0, CU-4 2.

The Leeds School of Business MBA entrepreneurship program was ranked 14th in the nation in the 2005 U.S. News & World Report. We'll give CSU a little credit here I saw an ad on the side of a bus that said CSU's program was decent too. 9.

National Championships CSU: 0 CU: 22 15. Club Sport National Championships (that I could find) CSU:3 CU: 57 16. And last, but not least. Rams fans always talk about how many times they've beaten the buffs, but here's the truth: In the history of the rivalry, if you take out all the games CU won, where they allowed CSU to score, and compare it to all the wins CSU has compiled against CU, the record is CU 19 CSU 18. Yes that's right. CU has SHUT OUT CSU more times then CSU has BEATEN CU. Pure domination. Feel free to pass this one to anyone else who you think deserves to know the truth. Enjoy the game!
