    Congrats to Dr. Ellis. well done.

    I was psyched to see that TD again, but it appears the camera man in the video above had some sort of seizure while filming.

    Meh. I could have been a doctor.

    This is a really nice story. I wonder if he and McCarty keep in touch.

    Ah... the infamous morning freeze bowl.... I made a poor decision to chug a log of Southern Comfort on a breakfast of a single eggo waffle that morning to numb the cold away and spent the entire 2nd half sitting down in the student section blacked the eff out... Supposed to go to lunch with my family afterwards, instead i walked home and fell asleep until about 8 PM and woke up to about 50 missed phone calls... OOOOPS.

    anywho.... congrats to Byron! I wonder if he will do his residency here in CO or elsewhere.

    Congrats.

    I miss Folsom being that packed, even with the big red horde.

    Congrats to Byron! I seem to recall Brent Musberger calling a CU game and saying "This young man plans to be a doctor after he graduates!". Way to follow your dreams.

    Offspring took Organic Chem with Byron and said he was one of the brightest guys in that class. Congrats to him!
