I am worried a couple of days without practice before this game is going to hurt us? + the kids worrying about the weather and issues with dorms effecting their concentration.
Are they not practicing?
This could just as easily negatively affect Connor Wood
We are practicing.
Curious as to why inclement weather would only have an adverse effect on one team's passing game.
I guess my op was unclear. We will be practicing in it all week which should help us come game time. So far this season our offense has been pass only, but I think we have a good stable of RB's that could prove a difference in this game, especially given that FS's offense is very similar to Arizona's two years ago in the wind game. The high winds kept arizona grounded and proved to be the difference in the game. I wonder if the rain could help us out similarly.
Weather will be fine
My impression of the dorm flooding was that it was a couple of the buildings around the engineering quad, and for that handful of students it was a matter of a couple of inches on the floor? A headache yes, but hardly an issue that would impact game performance even if it did happen to any of the player's rooms. On the other hand they have classes cancelled which may lead to more time for film study and individual preparation.
It was Reed Hall that flooded, which I guess is an engineering dorm. Apparently Norlin amd Leeds flooded to, although I'm not sure how bad it is.
Apparently, damage is minimal - so I can't imagine that it's good bad as of yet. Curious to see how much rain we're going to et today. Seems to be lightening up at the moment, but supposed to get heavier again this afternoon I believe.
I went by Folsom Field last night, it drains well but it didn't stop from there being standing water on the field. I wouldn't be 100% sure that the field is ready to go.
CU just tweeted -
"SEEK HIGHER GROUND IMMEDIATELY: Wall of water coming down Boulder Canyon. Move away from Boulder Creek!"
Football is an all weather game. Until their is lighting or structural damage to the stadium, the game will likely go on as scheduled. Too much TV revenue.
How about as far as the Dogs landing and getting into Boulder.......They are suppose to be flying in tomorrow, how are the Routes into Boulder?
You guys are gonna have to walk... sorry
By tomorrow, you will likely be fine. Flights, probably will be delayed coming in though.
nice point - kinda glass half full way of looking at it. Just read practice delayed couple of hours today and will be inside
and according to CU the game is still a go. Field looks fine, parking may be an issue
might want to stay put in cali
Ha! that will show them!
In all likelihood though, DIA is a bit out of the path of this storm, so they shouldn't be having nearly the issues that Boulder and Denver are having right now.
We will be well on the way to cleanup by this time tomorrow.
I'd think the more experienced QB would be affected less.
Damn, our best chance in this game is to win by forfeit.
But how's the 13th floor of Darly North?
Currently there are over 20 roads and or intersections closed within the City of Boulder alone. Many more in the surrounding area.
As I recall, the field has a very good drainage system, with pipes and pumps installed beneath the surface. it should be in good condition by game time. But sloppy maybe; how could it not be?
Real turf and wetness, wonder what kind of "mudders" the B*tchs have?
Not likely! DIA is high and dry---no flight delays. They don't even show an inch of rain out there. Now the roads into Boulder.....
Richardson loves the slop, eats the slop. His father was a mudder. His mother was a mudder!
How well should the field hold up this Saturday? Even with all the drainage systems it can't dry out by Saturday. Will the grounds crew be able to fix it by Oct. 5?
It would be a real pity if it was still torn up when Oregon came in....
If I understand my Allbuffs natural sciences correctly, with all this water in Boulder, and all the accompanying oxygen, shouldn't the atmosphere be getting less thin and easier to breathe? And isn't this likely to be an advantage for Fresno on Saturday in terms of dealing with the altitude?
If my calculations are correct, with all this rain, the oxygen level will make it seem like the game is being played 5000 ft below sea level.
