    76 days and counting.

    I wonder who was the best player to wear #76 at CU?

    Blame it on my indecision on the timing to start a countdown. Husker fans have been counting down since the loss to Texas last season for sure and I didn't want to have a very long countdown. If it wasn't for basketball, I would have started it sooner.

    In 1976, the Buffs shared first place in the Big 8 and finished the season #16 in both polls.

    In December of that year, the Pac-8 extended invites to Arizona and Arizona State. USC finished #2 in both polls and UCLA was #15 in both polls just ahead of the Buffs.

    some roided up walk-on kid from Goofbag, Nebraska who by the virtue of Dr. Tom and all that is holy in Bugeater football went from a 165 lb 8 man football halfback to a 300 lb OL in 3 months.

    I think 77 was also the # worn by Brundage (AA DL).

    How about the Salerno brothers? Sam lettered from 1953-55; Bob lettered from 1956-59. Both played tackle; both wore No. 73.

    72 more days to go!

    In 1972, it was Eddie Crowder's last winning season as the Buffs would go 5-6 a year later and the Bill Mallory saga begins in 1974.

    The last Big 12 event today is a reason to celebrate today and I don't mean by joining 10,000 bozos on the lawn to light up a joint at 4:20 p.m. today.

    After that is done, I'm sure we can finally start putting up Pac-12 stuff on the CU facilities. I was bummed that we didn't have a Pac-12 logo on the football field for the spring game like Utah did for theirs.

    71 days to go!

    1971 was a good year for the Big 8 as NU, OU, and CU finished 1-2-3 in the rankings at the end of the season.

    No. 71 - let's go with Victor Rogers. :thumbsup:

    Offensive tackle; four-year letterman (1998-2001). First-team All-Big 12 in 2001. Notably gave a rousing halftime speech (along with senior tight end Daniel Graham) during the Oklahoma State game, lifting the Buffs from a 16-7 halftime deficit to a 22-19 victory - http://www.cuatthegame.com/2001/oklahoma-state-33-yard-two-point-conversion/
