    By my rough math, CU is 15-4 the past three season in home conference games. What's most impressive about that is it includes multiple wins against top-15 teams (none since joining the Pac-12).

    Now I've never been to a game at Coors (who's hosting?) but here's what I love about You Can't Win at Altitude (YCWaA) - it has nothing to do with Boulder being 5,430 feet above sea level. Not one thing. It's the mentality that you're cultivating around coming to Boulder. Whether it's altitude, team defense, Roberson, or Burks the belief is that when you arrive at DIA you'll be back there in 48 hours with an L.

    Keep it up. It's real.

    fify. It is the goddamn KEG!

    * Only because a top-15 team hasn't shown up to Boulder since we joined the Pac-12

    I'm not so sure about the altitude thing. Wyoming did beat us here.

    Why not? It makes sense. Larimie is at a higher altitude than Boulder, more oxygen for them at the Keg.

    First casualty of the GREAT BLIZZARDO OF 2012!
    No. No. No. cute, but the Keg does not get foamy, it hasn't moved in 30 years.

    effing Kansas gayhawks are two of those losses. Bastards. I'll always hate them. OK. It's pure jealousy. But it's a pure jealous hatred.

    Sure. Why not. Come up for a game, Pachoops. Other people let me get drunk and crash on their couches so I may as well do the same.
