Sky is blue...sun rises in the east....HCMM beats Sparkles...Buffs will win.
Shouldn't the depth chart for both teams be out now?
Our coaches aren't releasing one before the game this hear

Water is wet.
I love having my birthday at the end of August. It's like the gods are giving me a gift every year.
This is going to be a long week waiting until Friday though. I was also going to take off Friday but now I have a big project that will require me to stay late. Arrgghhh.
Finally! It's too early for booze so this must be the kool-aid talking, but I firmly believe that the rebirth of Buff football begins this year. We may or may not make a bowl but the product on the field will be vastly different than what we have seen the last 5+ years.
Get this team winning and Boulder will be a magnet for recruits going forward the way it was in the late 90's. Lets start the trend by ripping the lambs this Friday. Here we come, little brother.
late 80's and early 90's just stopping by to say "Hi."
I made the trip to Sam's yesterday to pick up a year's worth of supplies for the tailgates. Lots of cups, plates, etc. I also picked up two big bags of chicken wings.
I have a new rooftop storage box for the car, too. It'll fit all the chairs and the tent, which will leave extra room in the car so I don't have to fold down the back seat.
Oh, yeah - I got a new tent this year. Don't break this one! You drunken assholes broke the last two tents. It's not rocket science how these things work.
I have the day off on Friday. I'm ready. Time for football season to begin!
Getting amped here too, working is going to be tough. Taking Friday off so nothing to distract me from tailgating. Certainly hoping for a Rams win but I'm more worried than I was due to the injuries at OT. Still not sure what either team has at this point. Hoping for a competitive game and some signs of life from both programs.
Rep this man, people.
Hope springs eternal on opening week.
I know. If we lose to little brother this board may melt down. I think we are finally trending up, but it may not show up in the win column this year. But, understandably, patience is running thin around here.

I do not want to think about my general state of well being if we lose to the goats.
I damn near broke my hand after the 2012 loss

This is why the series sucks. If we win, we get a mild buzz and move on with the schedule. If we lose...
I've read those sentiments numerous times on here. In reality, if you lose it's either because CU is bad - a fact regardless of the opponent you just played - or CSU is better than bad and it will eventually be proven that a loss to CSU really wasn't all that damning. Rather than worrying about bad pub for losing it sounds like the better thing to do is to be a good team and win. Historical data tossed aside for more recent examinations of both teams leaves me feeling almost as bad about CSU losing to CU (and more importantly - what it probably means for the rest of the season) as it does for CU to lose to CSU. I think both fan bases picture the other team as being a bad team and they should feel bad if they don't win. Both are probably right, at least to a certain degree. "If we can't even beat [insert CSU/CU here] who can we beat?"
I hate it when ram fans make sense. But these days, even if the Rams were above their historical average, beating them doesn't mean much because the P12 is so damn good. Losing to them, however, is as horrible a sign as you can have for the season.
Why not? We'll be bludgeoned by reality soon enough.
Except for the answer to that last question for CSU is "Wyoming, Air Force, New Mexico, Hawaii, UNLV and maybe SDSU and SJSU." For CU, the answer is "well, I don't know, maybe Hawaii and UMass".
Let's face it...neither of these teams is very good. CSU is a MWC that didn't beat a team with a winning record and lost a ton of starters. CU is in the toughest or second toughest division in FBS and only beat 2 FBS teams last year, one of them CSU and the other the worst AQ school in the country. A loss would mean a lot to both programs trying to see how to get to 6 wins, but not sure one loss defines the quality or trajectory of the team. Ultimately, this series sucks.
Your point about the schedules is well made, but after our loss to CU last year I thought we were going to lose to all those teams too. The wins we got were probably due to a combination of most of those teams being at least a little worse than CU (although I'd argue it was close at times) and we got a little better.
It disappoints me to read that some people think the series sucks. I realize CSU has a bit more to gain - it's good financially (for both teams actually) and playing a P5 team - and I agree that having it in Denver at this point doesn't make a ton of sense, but I like it. Call it bragging rights, call it in-state excitement, whatever, but I definitely have fun with it. When I hear a fan say it sucks I wonder what team you'd prefer to play. I can't come up with a team that provides you the combination of money and probability of winning as the current set up.
I wondered the same thing as you, but not for long. There's a few threads here on that topic here. most recent:
Should be a 2 for 1 in Boulder if we decide to keep playing it in the future. As little brother you need to know your place at the table.
I for one don't think that the series "sucks," I think the teams currently suck. When both teams have been good to great, the series has been great. Move it to the campuses (2-for-1) while both teams improve, and it's a great series again. Both campuses need to get their respective student bases on board too, the enthusiasm has to start there and it's a bit disgraceful on both sides.
I think playing the game in Denver sucks. I also think that with the 9-game P12 schedule, it would be sensible to have some more flexibility in our OOC scheduling.
I think it's stale at this point. Let it go away for a few years and build excitement. Then play it on campus. Maybe at CU one year before Lubick field at Stryker Stadium opens up and then play it at LF@SS for the first game ever.
Not sure if anyone's asked this before, but what do you guys think about the RMS? How about playing it in Denver?
How about the front range cycle with CSU, Wyoming, UNM, and AirForce (if they could bring themselves to do it.)
Not in Denver.
