    Fir those of you who didnt follow the decision closely or stream the CU presser announcing the game cancellation you should have. As many of you now know FSU was headed to their charter to come to Colorado when we first delayed them and then called the game off. No one would have blamed them for being frustrated and venting a little about the lost expense, but did you guys catch their response?

    The turned around and said: "Well the charter is paid for rather than have it go to waste how can we help? What can we fly out to you? People? Blankets? Food?"

    Pure class on the part of Fresno State and it's admin on that one.

    If it were me on the CU end of the line, I'd have requested 50 cases of Pliney the Elder and several hundred pairs of Google Glass.

    That was a hell of a nice gesture. I wonder if they really sent anything that would help those in need?

    If they send food, make sure no walk-ons eat any of it.

    Press release from Fresno State...

    Sept. 16, 2013


    FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State Athletics has teamed up with the American Red Cross to help raise money that will go towards the recovery efforts in Boulder, Colo. following record rainfall led to devastating floods in the area this past week.

    Led by the Fresno State Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), around 25-30 student-athletes and another 25-30 Red Cross volunteers will be collecting donations from 4:30-6:15 p.m. in and around Bulldog Stadium on Friday night when the 'Dogs play Boise State at 6 p.m. in a game being televised nationally by ESPN.

    "As a part of SAAC here at Fresno State, we realize that this would be a tremendous opportunity to help out a fellow institution as well as a community that is in serious tribulation due to a terrible natural disaster," said Bulldog sophomore football player Jordan Brown. "We hope to do all we can to help and ensure this college campus and entire town can return to its normal lifestyle as soon possible"

    Fresno State and the University of Colorado were scheduled for a football game on Saturday, Sept. 14 before the floodwaters caused the postponement of the game. No make-up date has been set.

    On Saturday, Fresno State head coach Tim DeRuyter said "we understand the tragic situation there and we send our thoughts and prayers out to the people of Colorado and wish them the best in their recovery efforts."

    All proceeds raised on Friday night will go to the American Red Cross in helping the residents of Boulder County recover from the devastation of the floods.

    Best of luck with your recovery! Any little thing Fresno and the San Joaquin Valley can do to help is our pleasure. Football aside, we are all humans renting time on the same patch of the Universe. Mother nature has reminded us once again how small we are, and we really are at her mercy.

    Boulder is one of this country's gems, and it just sucks what has happened. But you will persevere, and rebuild. Football will always be there. Those of use who've been around a while remember the days when CU was a feared and respected national program that competed for national titles. As a Fresno State fan, I always appreciated CU for having the stones to schedule us, and also, to at least return a game dating back to the Pat Hill years.

    My hope is we could set up a long-standing series, but I know since you are locked into playing CSU every year that may not be in the cards. Truly, best of luck with everything. Mac will get you turned around, I have no doubt.
