    When the Buffs inked this game last season, without the guaranteed return trip befitting a program of CU's stature, I couldn't help but think of all the 1-AA schools who travel the country looking for ass-kickings and a quick paycheck.* Sure, the Buffs are getting a massive non-con appearance fee, but it's still football prostitution at its finest (with Mike Bohn as the pimp).* It's an awkward situation, being hamstrung by not only the typical CU budgetary woes, but also paying-off a disastrous failure of a coach and not receiving any TV money to boot.* While CU seems to have caught OSU at the perfect time, with the Buckeyes hurting more than they have in a decade, it's still a massive challenge to walk into the Horseshoe, and the whole scenario boils down to a cash grab.

    Mike, you gotta keep that pimp hand strong!
    The long and the short of it is we needed the cash.* Desperate times call for desperate measures, and all that.

    So bring on OSU with their deep pockets, and bring on whatever horrors await in the shadows of the Horseshoe.* Things will not always be this way, but, for one weekend at least, we are the Little Sisters of the Poor.* However the game goes on Saturday, I'll be humming "Take the Money and Run" all day long.

    The final non-conference test of the season kicks off at 1:30 MT.* Since you probably aren't going to Columbus for this one, I suggest tuning into ABC (or ESPN2 if it's blacked out in your area) to catch the 5th all-time matchup between the Bucks and the Buffs.
