    Final look back on football season: CU = "overrated?" Is that fair?

    I read the recent thread regarding this and wanted to throw my two cents in. Long story short is yeah, the team maybe was a bit overrated in its final standing of the regular season. But who the hell cares?? Recruiting has taken off like a bat out of hell, attendance at Folsom is great, and...

    Mac, Phil Lindsay and Sefo Liufau quotes: post Alamo Bowl

    SEFO LIUFAU (opening statement:) The game sucked. It’s kind of obvious. I don’t know what you guys want me to say. It’s pretty frustrating the way kind of things happened. Just didn’t come out with all things firing. I think in the beginning we moved the ball a lot as an offense but weren’t...

    I'd be lying if I said Leavitt's departure doesn't hurt

    If the stealing away of a key coach and figure within the program doesn't qualify as a definitive beginning to a rivalry, then I'm not quite sure what to make of Jim Leavitt's departure to join the Oregon Ducks. If you were tired of the Rocky Mountain Showdown, then you may have just received...

    Additional CU/Utah postgame quotes

    Mike MacIntyre on the postgame feeling: "The feeling in the locker room was awesome, but I thin the feeling will hit them when they get all their family away. They'll wake up in the middle of the night and just go 'wow.' They'll have that moment when it's just them by themselves when you've...

    What to make of CU's win over Zona

    You shouldn't be that happy with CU's win over Zona. Last week after Tuesday's practice, I asked coach Mac if he at all used Wazzu's throttling of Zona last week as a gauge of what to expect from his team; would CU's performance vs. Arizona be fair to compare with Washington State's game...

    Three missed field goals vs. Stanford yesterday should be the final straw for head coach Mike MacIntyre. Chris Graham can't be trusted. Davis Price also can't be fully trusted. Alex Kinney...forget about it. Although, there was some voodoo magic on Kinney's 31-yard attempt. That ball moved very...
