If I lived in Colorado, I'd boycott the next two games

    I realize boycotting the remaining games doesn't hurt the pocket book much - the tickets have already been purchased - but it sure seems to me that a stadium with only 30,000 fans sends a better message to the athletic director and university admins than any letters or emails or calls to the radio stations, etc.

    Where is our powder blue t-shirt guy to start up a facebook campaign to get people to boycott the next couple games?

    I'm still wondering whether or not to do a game watch for the alumni club down here next week.

    I think a letter of protest to the powers-that-be at CU would be a good idea for any alumni clubs.

    Will probably do that, but I'm not very good at words.

    I'll be at ISU for one reason: The Hall of Fame class will be honored at the game and I've got a relative who's being inducted. The HOF dinner is this week, so I'm hoping I'll be able to chat with some people close to the program for their take.

    If anyone would show up, I'd have the watch party. Put out some pads and pencils and have people jot down their feelings - hopefully in tasteful language :smile2: - and send a synopsis of the comments to the AD. It doesn't have to be War and Peace - just say we held a watch party and here is what the alumni in Austin are thinking, and add an edited list. At least you show that you still support the University, yet convey the unhappiness over the current clusterfujk football situation.

    Hell, I don't even live in Colorado and I'm going to boycott the next two games.

    That's a great freakin' idea. I'll go with that - I already know that I going to have to censor GregInAustin some, but there are few that will probably put some good stuff down for me. especially if no announcement ever gets made.

    I would too but there will be 40k there and our invisible AD will take that as awesome loyal support and feel good about the program.

    Ignore the "4 for $100 deal" man behind the curtain!
