    2008's 0-58 drubbing at #15 Mizzou that snapped our nationally-relevant streak of consecutive games without being shut out

    2012's 0-48 drubbing vs #14 Stanford that snapped our nationally-relevant streak of consecutive home games without being shut out

    Notes:

    Mizzou snapped a streak of 242 consecutive games
    Stanford snapped a streak that dated back to 1986 (Maybe Embree really is returning us the the early years of Mac)

    If I recall, the Buffs had multiple scoring opportunities in that Mizzou game, but Hawkins wanted CU to show that they COULD get a first down instead of kicking the easy field goal. (Mason Crosby was CU's kicker at the time.) Plus, that was a road game.

    The Buffs had the ball across mid-field ONE (1) time today. At home.

    Just ****ing kill me.

    But, really Mizzou '08 was worse. Because while there had obviously been clear signs of the troubles ahead before that game, that was at a point where many of us still had moderate hopes for CU football. Like, bowl eligibility with relative ease.

    Now, I just barely care. It hurts to see CU football this atrocious, but my emotional investment is almost gone. No losing in humiliating fashion could shock me. And this was the third CU game I simply did not bother watching more than 2 minutes of.

    Multiple scoring opportunities, but '08 was Aric "Money" Goodman's first year kicking for CU (sat out in '07).

    What really worried me after the Mizzou game was when Collins said he wouldn't have changed a thing about the gameplan. I'll have to wait and see if these coaches decide to say anything equally ridiculous.

    At least Collins had a game plan. I don't think Bieniemy and Brown do.

    I think 2008 Mizzou was actually a bigger embarrassment, 2012 Stanford just makes the program a bigger joke nationally.

    Embree's ability to deliver a clear signal of his program's "progress" to the homecoming crowd is quite an accomplishment. I actually thought this would be a 10 or maybe 20-point game-margin. At the END of the game, I mean!
