and you don't have to go into the nitty-gritty if oyu don't want. i'm just interested to see the difference in emotions from last week to this week.
One of the few times I rarely got upset at anything in the game or after. Of course I expected everything to happen that did, so that helps. I even had a feeling we would find a way to **** up the drive after recovering the opening KO.
I was pissed after the blocked FG. Then at peace
I obviously hate the pathetic level our program has sunk to, and losing ****ing sucks, but after Wazzu, I'm no longer going to get my hopes up for any game. I'll expect a loss, and if it miraculously turns out otherwise, then great.
"Oh well saw that coming... on to the next"
At peace with the acceptance that we just flat out suck. Hoping for the day it gets better, but for now I expect us to lose. Sorry.
wheres the "collect my winnings" option?
Disgust, disappointment, envy & shame.
Disgust with the level of "sports entertainment" on the road.
Disappointment that the players have this big platform in which to shine, and one again look more like buffoons.
Envy that a richer, geekier program has an elite team that buzz-sawed a team in a decade long funk.
Shame that my expectations were so low, and so on target.
I'm also pissed by the last 2 years of non-recruiting that has been so fully exposed, again and again and again and again.
All those emotions are tempered by patience. A couple, three more years at rock bottom and this bitch is going to turn around.
good team vs. bad team. good team wins. bad team looks pretty bad. this one was an L, so no great damage here to my already fallen confidence.
At least we didn't look as pathetic as we did vs Ohio State
It doesn't help that every single team i like sucks
I'm somewhere between apathy and at peace. I guess I'd call it "hopeful." I'm in the mode of evaluating what we have and looking to the future.
After the suspensions, I predicted on my Facebook wall that Stanford would win by at least 40...final margin of victory? 41...Thus, I wasn't too shocked and took the Officer Barbrady approach to the game: "Move along, nothing to see here..."
I have a semi, and I think it's cause of CU Football.
I voted for apathy but then I read this quote and I changed my mind. I like to pretend that I don't care but then something like this will set me off.
I hope I'm missing some context there.
Seriously, WTF is that supposed to mean? It was cool that you got to go on a little field trip and step on the same field against a great player? It was cool because you know you will never get the chance to play against him on Sundays? It was an honor to get your ass handed to you? Seriously, WTF does that mean? ****ing losers. God ****ing damnit! **** you all! ****.
Really? And this is what Embree hasn't been able to change yet.
I hope Polk got his autograph after the game.
There is no light at the end of the tunnel. Zero. Zilch. Nada. We are looking at years of suckitude and maybe more if this staff fails. Then we start all over again.
you really need to add 'numb' as an answer
Dan Hawkins- the gift that keeps on giving
Sad sad sad...
We're still paying him a couple mil, so it's only fair that he be allowed to keep f**king us for a couple more years.
I knew that they were going to get crushed. I just wish I could watch them play a clean game while doing it. But I didn't expect much going into this year, and thus the games have been easy to watch.
I voted apathy. I still watch, I still root for them, I still want them to win, but right now, it's pretty bleak. It is hard going into virtually every game knowing the team has very little chance of winning, and in some cases, even being competitive.
I'll always be a Buff fan. But it is hard staying as invested in the program as I'd like to be. I remember when CU had real leadership. Marolt, Gee, Mac, of late we have had waffling spineless goofballs who don't know their head from their ***. Seriously, nobody could figure out the link between donations and the FB team's performance? Supposedly, this came as a surprise to Benson and the rest of the brain trust.
Hiring the biggest disaster since Fairbanks? (and some might argue he was a bigger disaster than Fairbanks) Understandable. Coaching hires are not always easily predictable. Extending the knucklehead? Baffling. Keeping the failed fraud into year five? You might as well have announced CU was really going to D2, not just keeping a D2 coach. CU FB has been corkscrewed into the ground under MB. Aside from getting CU into the P12, I can't think of much that has been done well, although you have to give credit for the Boyle hire, but I have a funny feeling that was just dumb luck.
I used to get all ginned up to write a post-mortem every Monday, because I really believed CU was a solid contender and maybe some of my half baked ideas might be the tweaks that would help them win more (not that anybody really listened, or that any of my ideas as an armchair fan had any real use). It was a way of venting, and hoping for a W the next week. I no longer do that. I don't believe there is anything that can fix the mess aside from a complete rebuild. CU, unfortunately, is at least two, probably three years from being any kind of a force in the P12.
Strangely, enough, hopeful. The 5 suspended players actually make me even more convinced that we hired the right guy. The first year or two is going to be pretty painful but after that, if we can keep continuity on this staff, we are going to get stronger and the success will be sustainable.
I rewatched the game last night. Man! Frustrating. I hesitate to say it wasn't as bad as the score indicated, but we could have easily stayed within around 20 or so. Way too many dropped or missed throws. You can't get kicks blocked and returned for TDs. That is ten points right there, for instance.
has to be peace or you'll go nuts - but on the bright side, all the games are televised
