    I tell ya, this season, up to now just seems different. It seems that in the last few seasons, going into the season, everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong, from injuries to player defections to guys not getting into school. This year just seems different so far.

    Now, I know that when it comes down to it, such nebulous things probably don't matter as much as talent on the field and coaching. Those things are yet to be seen. But from a existential perspective, call it vibes, karma, positivity, whatever you want, this season, so far, just seems different.

    Give old DBT some love here, people! :rock:

    Didn't you just make a thread about how things this off-season are similar?

    Winning the existential war IS NOT one of the little things. It's huge...

    I don't think so. If I did, I was drunk.

    I have to say I disagree. This feels pretty much exactly the same as it did last year. Lots of reports about how practices are great. That this is the best Fall camp ever. That we have more experience. Blah, blah, blah.

    Same bullsh*t, different day.

    9/4 can't get here soon enough. We, as fans, desperately need something concrete that we can look at and see if progress has been made or if all we're getting is the same old line of crap we've been fed the last four years.

    I'm not talking about anything being said by writers, fans, or coaching staff. I'm talking VIBES, man. Can't you dig that? Positivity.

    It's like reading your posts from the last off season. You've been somewhat tame this year...should I say resigned?

    The way I look at it is we are currently undefeated and Tied for 1st in the Big 12. That all might change in 11 days but for now no one has a better team than the buffs.

    Man, you need to discard that veil of negativeness which pervades your every post, man.

    You could say that, saying" hawk sucks" every post makes people annoyed. I'm lurking waiting to see what transpires...

    I'm just tired of qualifying my time at CU with "but we were good back then."

    I don't know why you would bother to use words in that case.

    Probably due to the fact that it still means something to me and it still kills me a bit whenever I see a no-effort, no-emotion performance on a Saturday. I still take pride in what I was able to be a small part of. The last decade has, for the most part, devalued those accomplishments. Losing sucks but losing with subpar effort is insulting and degrading to all who have worn the uniform. I am sick of the self-loathing that began in that four-game stretch at the end of the Barnett era. We have not gotten beyond that. You can blame whomever you want to blame but until we can play with passion, enthusiasm and respect for the game every practice and every game, we will not recover. I like the players we have this year and I hope that we see a major paradigm shift this season. I only takes one practice and one game performance to break out of this 5-year funk. My hope is that this is the year.

    If you're hoping for passion and enthusiasm, you're looking in the wrong place. That's not on Hawk's agenda. Even keel. Don't get too high. Don't get too low. That's his mantra.

    I was merely suggesting that you punch some mother****er in the throat for questioning the greatness that is the University of Colorado Football. Sorry for the confusion.

    Are you missing a "k" and an "h" or just an "s"?

    Love it, Walrus. I could go for some throat-punching if that's what it takes.

    I wish I had more to go on than "vibes." But it sounds like the players are at least showing much more emotion going into this season than they have in the past. Don't listen to Sacky. He's just a bitter 40 something year old. Yeah, Hawkins has talked about keeping emotions in check, but I don't think he meant that he doesn't want the teamto play with emotion. I think he meant that he wants the team to avoid a "roller coaster" ride of emotion.

    Anyway, the premise of this thread is not about tangible things. Its about the intangible things. You know. Vibes, man. I'm getting good vibes.

    I'm getting the exact same vibe I had last year, only with an increased sense of impending doom.
