    I just want a thread that can be our hall of shame. I would love to see all the comments from national media members discussing how pathetic we are.

    Thanks.

    Won't have any. National media does not pay attention any longer.

    @RyanThorburn: The #CUBuffs were outscored a combined 82-3 in the first quarter vs. Fresno State, USC and Oregon.

    Ouch. Sadly, this is the only thing that might get Benson & DeStephano's attention that football does indeed matter.

    Would love any other articles you folks come up with. I plan on printing them out and mailing them into Benson with my tix for the UW game

    As I have stated after watching this team on National T.V. alot this year. We are so bad I think we would maybe only have 1 or 2 more wins if we were in the MWC. We are easily one of the worst 20 CFB programs in Div 1 and I am certain that we aren't even one of the best 5 FCS schools. NDSU would probably roll us 45 to 0.

    This team would not make the FCS playoffs. That is not a talent issue. I can say without reservation that there is more talent and depth at CU than at any FCS program.

    More depth but I'm not sure pure talent at starters is that much better than the top 5 FCS programs.
    NDSU whipped CSU the weak after they beat us.

    The way I see it Chidero is currently our only NFL quality player and we have one very good hustle player in Pericak.

    But yeah, I agree, coaching would absolutely get us whooped.

    Yeah idk where he got UVA from. The thread is kinda old too, obviously we're #1 by far. Duke is also having a good season by Duke standards. We're by far the worst BCS team.

    Agreed. We should at least make the games respectable if we had competent coods. Position coaches are good...EB and Brownnoser ****ing suck

    As long as Bohn & Co won't fire Embree & Co (who can't afford to have "quitters" on their resumé), then CU Football will continue to occasionally drag in "shame" articles. It's the only thing the press can do to galvanize the dwindling fanbase in hopes of igniting some fire under CU Leadership's collective bottoms.

    Apathy serves those sitting there, doing nothing but drawing in huge salaries. Those expense reports are going up, too - all those new recruiting coordinators LOVE the notion of a Do-Nothing, Nothing's-Required coaching staff.

    Scott Van Pelt just called CU the worst program in D-1 football on his radio show. And it was just in passing to illustrate how ridiculous Lane Kiffen was being with that jersey number switch on the 2 point conversion.

    Stuart Mandel pretty much nailed it:

    "If you ever wanted to see what a program looks like after the Death Penalty, without actually getting one, I give you Colorado."

    We made this week's College Shameday on deadspin.com. Don't think this is the first time, but I've been suprised we haven't made it on there every week.

    That play is our coaching staff in a nutshell. That should be enough to fire EB. And if you have to fire both your coordinators, then you fail as a head coach. Fire them all.
