    Picks Stanford for the Homecoming game. :huh:

    http://www.cualum.org/homecoming/

    Be nice to see these idots get smart for once and pick a game where we have a chance to win. UCLA? UW? Best choice - SAC ST!
    But no they have to choose Stanford. ****ing idots.

    Stanford could very well be around .500 when we play. 2012 Stanford is not as good as 2011 Stanford.

    Precisely. Let's see how they like the altitude. What's the weather like in early November btw? They are also a warm weather team.

    Weather will likely be gorgeous, but we're also no strangers to Halloween snowstorms.

    Excellent. While I don't see you guys having a breakout season this year and I'm still dubious about the Fresno game, I suspect you may knock off either UCLA or Furd at home this year. Neither have been to Boulder yet and I think those are the games where they overlook you guys. They'll be too confident and arrogant and may greatly underestimate the impact of CU's home field advantage. Plus, they have new coaches and they'll have to execute new plays while the stadium noise will cause a lot of audibles and miscues.

    We will surprise a couple teams this year like Utah at the end of last season. Stanford makes for a great opportunity to be one of those games.

    I've gone on record already saying this is the year to play the Trees. But if they are to stumble this year, I hope that it's after Cal (my team) plays them, which works out fine for you Buffs!

    Why does Stanford list the Pac 12 Championship Game in its schedule and we don´t?

    Because they at least have a chance to contend for it. We have no chance.

    Don't you get it Jens? Stanford is the most awesome university on the planet-academically and athletically. They think ahead and nobody can top them in any category. They simply are unstoppable in the universe. CU should just give up now...

    It's a mindset! They expect to compete to be in the the Pac 12 Championship Game. The CU Athletic Department doesn't.

    Your defeatism sucks. Never give up on your school or team. F*ck everyone else. Play in 140 degree temperature if you have to and never look up to anyone.

    Last time I checked we have as many wins as Oregon, USC and Stanford combined.

    Did we beat Stanford in any sport this year? I thought for sure we'd beat them at home in basketball. Nope. They beat us worse than Kansas ever did. It's like they have our number or something. I can't bring myself to hate Stanford, but damn, I'd sure like to beat them.

    Incorrect, that would require copious amounts of weed, Chomsky, and a tiny asian chick name Nguyen. Trust me.

    Stanford's admissions criteria and steep tuition keeps CU students from pursuing a real degree in Palo Alto. There is not a single CU parent who would hesitate to send our children to Palo Alto if offered the choice between a full ride scholarship to Stanford and CU.

    Stanford alums are richer than CU's. Stanford students and alumni smarter than CU's. Stanford's athletes are stronger, faster, more disciplined, and better coached.

    CU fans appoligize to no one... except Stanford.

    We realize our natural place in the universe. It's better to just let Stanford eat our lunch than to aspire to defy gravity and expect victory over the Cardinal.

    We willfully bow before our Stanford overlords in every aspect of our lives, at work, on the playing fields, and in the gymnasiums. Stanford grads design and market Apple, Facebook, Oracle, and basically everything that makes modern living tolerable. CU takes pride in the fading glory of South Park adult cartoon series and the afterglow of a few NASA's manned space projects.

    Stanford graduates that occupy high office are the only force in the universe that are capable of stopping a global meltdown that returns mankind back to the dark ages.

    CU is not so dilusional to get uppidy and actually aspire to upset our Stanford overlords by beating them in college athletics. A CU fan wouldn't even throw a piss baloon at a Stanford fan nor push a Stanford granny down the stairs. We can't even say "**** Stanford" without a deep sense of shame and the pain of inadequacy. This is followed by an immediate urge to appologize for blasphemy.

    The members of Buff Nation were not good enough to get into Stanford as undergraduates. Instead, we swallowed our pride and compensated by opting to engage in the selfish and reckless pursuit of frivolity in Boulder. Our sub-Stanford quality intellect is mainly focused on bong rips, ski trips, and satisfaction with our near perfect SAT score plus the slacker's 2.3 high-school GPA. Under this behavior is a deep rooted inferiority complex to The Tree that is on par with that gnawing feeling that we failed to grow up into the adults that would make our fathers proud.

    When we schedule Stanford, it is in Buffnation's psyche and in our best interest to assume that we are going to roll over and lose before the game even begins. This is true every time. In every sport [except skiing and occasionally XC]. We are just honored to simply be in the presence of Stanford's endowment, even when that means we get to submit to them as they do unspeakable things to us. Standford is Tiger Woods and CU is a cross between the golf ball and a waitress at Denny's.

    It is more than enough for CU fans to hope the Buffs can just keep games competitive into the beginning of the second half. It is our responsibility not to force Stanford coaches to take pity on us during trash time.

    The only people who expect CU to beat Stanford are the insubordinate, the stupid, and the crazy marauding Cal fans that have an axe to grind against their rival from across the bay.

    not a bad move necessarily. you want alums in town for homecoming....playing a name opponent (at least since year 2 or Harbaugh) is not a bad way to do it. betta than a patsy fake W for us at this point. Boulder and CU do a lot of the talking to make out of town/state alums itchy to write a check. we've been losing a lot since the Boise mojo you blitz we score playbookrolled into/out of the Dal, so maybe the Sac State W's of the world we can put a diff weekend.

    and it's only a matter of time until we beat one of the Pac big boyz at Folsom....book that.

    Homecoming doesn't mean jack ****. Don't know why some get up in arms about the opponent.

    I get high school homecoming. High schoolers get to have a dance. When you've graduated, you may see friends from when you were in school, you might even know the families of some of the homecoming court.

    I don't get college homecoming. Nobody but a handful of people have any idea who is driving around in the cars down on the field. Even the name doesn't make sense. In college, homecoming means leaving Boulder, not coming to Boulder.
