    Looks like we are only about 8 decisions away from winning like Alabama.

    No brainer. Other than, maybe, Lisa Simpson never being born.

    This. Would have been NC #2. Was arguably CU's best team ever.

    Go back to 2001, and Gary wouldn't be on the hot seat.

    Although if I had a time machine, I'd probably do something to help humanity more.

    Like kill Bob Devaney.

    tough list but the 89 national championship would be hard to not vote for--- it would have capped the year for sal's memory.

    back to back NCs would have been cool as hell.

    my 2nd choice would be that 94 loss.

    I voted for not hiring Hawkins, but '94 was a close second. The 2001 option was also in the running. I was 4 in 1989, so, that doesn't resonate as much with me.

    I was going to say '94 Nub game because we would have won the NC then but I answered the scandal. We still haven't recovered from it. The single most devastating event in CU history.

    1989 would be nice, but I don't even remember when we won our first one. I was just too young and think about every high school player we are trying to recruit: Not a single one was even born at that time. So yeah it is nice to have on our shelf, but it doesn't do much to make us better today.

    Changing some plays and wining another NC or two would be great but 2001 was the beginning of our demise.

    Change that outcome and the 2002 issues don't even happen. Media does not kill CU for every single incident involving a CU player and CU admin provides better support to the team and we when we need a new HC, DII is not even in the picture because better coaches actually want to come to CU.

    DII is not in the picture because Barnett finishes the 2005 season 10-2 with a win in the Holiday bowl (after a 35-31 loss to Texas in the B12CG)
