    using his $$ muscle to get OSU to the Insight was the right thing to do. Anybody else think CU would have pounded those B10/11 also rans? Seems to me the Indy bowl is a trap for the B12, it seems like the SEC rep usually wins that one. Congrats to 'Bama, but I saw enough form the Buffs to be encouraged.

    And that is one of the main reasons why my family in Eastern Colorado has recently entered into some nice leases on what used to be pretty fertile farm land.

    Most of Eastern Colorado is dry land. Not saying for sure that is the case here, but it a good chance.

    UBT: It's only a vicious rumour that the Ogallala Aquifer extends through Wyoming and Montana. Another malicious attempt by the Corn to steal Wyoming Water!!

    The Ogallala aquifer quits to the south of me by about 20 miles, barely touches Wyoming if at all.

    Actually a bit of both. The wheat is dry land. The corn is irrigation.

    Then that's pretty valuable stuff. Irrigated land in Eastern Colorado is rare, or so I've been told.
