    We have a promising future for our athletics, I really believe there is light at the end of the tunnel for this bad nightmare the last decade. Just hang on folks. We still have our current HC, but I am giving him a slight chance that this change could be a jumpstart for our program and be just what the doctor ordered. If Danny is gonna be alright, we are gonna have a big season this year!

    If not, I believe we will find the right coach and the buffs will rise again. I am so proud! SO damn proud of my buffs, what a week! It feels like one of the biggest victories in school history! I feel like the rest of the nation looked up to the buffs this week for making this move first!

    GO BUFFS!!!!

    This has been exciting, and it's been much needed good news.

    We still have a lot to fix (Dan Hawkins), but we came out of this deal on top.

    First time in years I felt like I wasn't getting kicked in the nuts...has been an excellent week and I have great expectations for the future of the Buffs.

    All of the jealous CSU and Enver media folks can kiss our a**. Great times ahead for the Buffs, I truly believe we will be a big beneficiary in recruiting in a conference with Texas and the California schools.

    Leash,

    I'm definitely feeling it, too. We needed this. After the witch hunt and the aftermath, it's so important to have something like this to heal wounds and rebuild bridges within the CU community. It was great to see so many Buffs from the past getting excited, so much enthusiasm from the CU faculty over what is largely a sports announcement, so much cooperation between athletics, academics and administration, and so much excitement from Buff fans in general and our previously disconnected west coast fans in particular.

    I'm proud to be a Buff fan. Nothing compares.

    Seeyou's desire to rain on that parade by trolls is just spite or envy.
    Spite is not classy. Envy is a deadly sin.

    One of the minor benefits from this conference reallignment is the separation anxioty that will be suffered by Husker fans living in Colorado. Now that the annual game is disbanded, their perpetual snipping is simply irrelevent, and will morph into conference smack.

    I believe you're touching on something that's going to be a major benefit for CU. Colorado's Front Range has been a major destination area for transplants from the other Big 8 states. Other than the ex-Oklahomans, it looks like it is going to be more difficult for them to maintain as strong of a connection to the Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri programs they grew up rooting for. CU has a much better chance of capturing these people as casual Buff fans (easy to support a local as your #2 team when your #1 team doesn't play them every year). And we've got a great chance of capturing their kids as diehard Buff fans. This is another reason why I believe separating is for the long-term good of the program.

    Exactly. Who wants to spend their existance in a dark sports bar on a perfect Colorado autumn afternoon on the Nebraska bye week when they can head up to Boulder and catch the electricity of a great matchup? The process won't happen over night, but over time, more and more BnG gear will be introduced into the closets of Colorado's nebraska faithful who harbor special memories of Folsom.

    Maybe some will even move to Chicago or back east. That would be good, too.

    Between being a CUBuff/Broncos fan in football, this has probably been the best week over the past three or four seasons since we beat OU. Man, it was nice to see this Oasis!

    Hopefully we can keep building. Move Hawkins out, move a credible coach in, re-open the recruiting boarders in TX/CA then COMPETE FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

    Funniest thing. This morning I was trying to figure out how big South Africa is - pretty big it turns out - so I googled "how big is Texas" to get some sort of comparison. The first thing that popped up was...

    A frickin' pic of Hawkins at the presser announcing CU's move to the PAC!!!!!!!!!!

    That made my friggin month.

    Leash,

    I am right with you my man. It has been such a long time to have a good feeling about or surrounding this program and University. There are major benefits in so many areas because of this move and I cannot be more proud. I still think we need to replace Hawk no matter the type of season he has (OK if he wins the MNC he should stay) but that will start to play out starting in 3 months or so. Right now we need to enjoy the moment and have fun watching the rest of the dominos fall into place. We have our spot secured!
