    Well, one thing Hawk seems to do consistently is get the team ready for one big road game a year.

    In 2006, after a rough 0-3 start with losses to Montana State, CSU and and almost getting shutout at home by ASU, the buffs traveled to #9 Georgia and had a 13-0 lead late in the 4th quarter, before a huge bulldog rally late fueled by a key Charles fumble.

    In 2007, the buffs completed their season sweep of the Big 12 south by beating a high powered Texas Tech team on the road.

    In 2008, the buffs desperate for a win to become bowl eligible, took a surprising 14-0 lead on rival Nebraska. The buffs fought with the better husker team back and forth all day, and the huskers needed their longest FG in school history to beat the buffs in the end.

    So there it is, while the buffs are still only 1-2 in those games listed, there does seem to be a pattern of one road game a year that we coem to play against a better team than us. Is this the one for 2009?

    We'll see

    I'd prefer it to be Texas. But I really do hope we get this one.

    Well, I'd love it if CU got it together and actually beat WVU.

    I'd rather beat Texas at this point, a non conf win does nothing for us right now, might as well play spoiler to a teams Nat'l Championship dreams

    If we win tonight it'll give the Buff Nation a reason to beleive there still might be some hope this year maybe even if we lose and keep it close meaning a loss by a field goal. If we get blown out then there's nothing left to look forward to but kicking NU's a$$ at the end of the year. I guess that will do what more can we ask for.
