    Do we have an actual rival now?

    CSU is the closest we have, but it's hard to have a rival from a lower conference.

    CSU is the closest.

    Buffs have to actually beat some Pac-12 South teams in football for things to get heated. Until that happens, we're pretty much the Iowa State of the old Big 12. We could call someone a rival and they'd pay zero attention to it.

    If your rival is that one team that you want to beat more than any other team, then, I'd have to go with any of them.

    Self-loathing is prerequisite for any CU fan since roughly 2005

    I'd say it's Nebraska. If that doesn't count, then I guess CSU. I kinda find myself rooting for Utah most of the time and you can't root for your rival, can you?

    Its Stanford. Gotta go with the fan base's most adored and idolized conference mate.

    A horrible truth that should make everybody vomit.

    Should have stayed in the b12: Nebraska, Baylor, Texas, etc. College football is not interesting to me without real rivalries. It's just minor league football. There aren't many real rivalries that involve teams that are not in the same state or at least border states. I can think of ND and USC. Any others?

    On that note, I'm happy to see New Mexico getting its football house in order. If the Pac-12 expands to 14, that's the university I want to see added. For hoops and Olympic sports, they match up so well with CU. Football is not close to our level of prestige, but at least it's a border state that's a straight shot down the highway or a short flight. Would be a much better pair-up than Utah for us.

    There is no reason for you to believe me, but I'm actually the guy in the Jason mask. I'm being serious.

    Is there legitimate talk of further expansion?

    **** Arizona, I'm not sure why I feel so strongly but seriously **** them. Man I was really hoping basketball could stay good and both football programs could find a way to be relevant to build a legit rivalry across sports. Outside of that Utah will eventually become our rival. Hopefully sooner than later because CSU is our rivalry game and that blows cottage cheese load.
