    Since we don't have very many positive things to talk about right now I thought I'd share this little bit. I traveled to the Orange Bowl to watch FSU vs NIU. After the 1st quarter they played "Historic Moments in Orange Bowl History" and showed Colorado's 10-9 win over Notre Dame. Played about 3 minutes of highlights and reminded the stadium (including me) that Colorado football exists.

    Couple Notes:

    FSU fans were extremely angry about having to play NIU and were pretty unenthusiastic the entire game. The loudest they got was when Jimbo Fisher (their head coach) got flagged for a dead ball personal foul.

    The NIU administration gave free tickets to the Orange Bowl to all their students and offered 2 nights in a hotel and a round trip bus trip for $150 dollars to all their fans .

    NIU should have been matched up against Louisville. That would make alot more sense. Florida could have been matched up against Nebraska and Florida St vs Georgia would have been an awesome game. I don't mind the Tie in's that the conferences have but I don't think it should be to a specific bowl vs a specific slot from another conference. I imagine a NIU vs Louisville game wouldn't have generated all the buzz and t.v. sponsorship revenue.

    NIU is about the same size as CU and probably sent more fans to that Sh*thole Bowl than CU did when the Buffs won the MNC. Turkeys from Illinois will do anything to get away from that crappy weather, even truck on down to the Swamp-Land of Gators, high humidity and Thai cockroaches who'll fly up your nose! (CU fans are smarter than that!)

    I am now convinced that hyphen use and intelligence are inversely correlated.

    As I have had family down there for years, unfortunately yes, I have been there. Friggin' miserable weather everytime I've been down there around Christmas.

    Oh, and the humidity is generally right around a 100% when it rains every day, if that's your idea of "awesome", have at it. The only neat part is the anoles slow down in the cold, wet weather, making it easier for the kids to catch them.

    Florida only sucks in the summer when it reaches 140 in the shade. Just ask Flounder.

    Disagree. The game results were perfect, and NIU actually made a game of it until the interception in the 3rd quarter when the wheels came off completely.
