    Are you talking about a protest at the NCAA tourney games later this week?

    Sorry, but that would just look stupid.

    This will work just as good as the Wisconsin union protests.

    Every CU fan possible should be in the Coors Event Center when CU is playing. And if they can't get in should be somewhere watching supporting the buffs. Boycott the tournament that will be a bigger factor for the NCAA cuz it costs them $$$.

    The poll needs another option: "BCS is a lunatic".

    I totally think you're a lunatic. I just thought it would be funny if we voted to protest, got you to organize this thing, and then let you be the only person who showed up at the Pepsi Center. But this thing got out of hand before I could get the PMs out. :smile2:

    Honestly, I think it would be a good thing if there were CU banners inside the Pepsi Center. I've also got a great sign idea:

    Committee +
    Buffs =
    Screwed

    This is a great idea. If you got a couple hundered people picketing outside the pepsi center I guarantee it would be one of the topics of discusion on all of the national sports shows the next day and the whole point of public protest is to get publicity for your cause. The protest would be against the selection process in general while highlighting the irationality of CU's exclusion. Its unlikely that any of this would lead to any tangible change, but it never hurts to get the wheels spinning. Unfortanetly, I think that all of 5 people would show up and the whole thing would end up looking stupid but if someone had the prowess to pull this off on a large scale it would be great.
