    For reasons unknown, the yearly series of questionable profit continues this weekend.* Reality and logic be damned, we're headed back to Invesco Sports Authority Field to face the CSU Rams.* You can check out my preview from last season here.

    I can't help but think of the underpants gnomes from South Park when thinking about this game.

    [​IMG]Phase 1:* Play CU and CSU in Denver

    Phase 2: ?

    Phase 3: Profit!

    I don't know why we head to Denver each year, but everyone keeps saying it makes more money for everyone involved.* Thing is, I can't see how.* Every year more and more fans stay away in droves.* How is it, with empty seats and fewer concession dollars, that the yearly "showdown" isn't becoming an unprofitable embarrassment?* Has anyone checked the books?

    Don't look at CU fans, Buff Nation supports our team as would befit a program of our stature. * As of yesterday, the Buffs have sold over 95% of their 38,000 ticket allotment.* As usual, it's the CSU fan base, long known for fickle and mostly absent support of their lower-profile alma mater, which continues to halfheartedly buy into the game they demand stays on the schedule.* It was announced that not only have they barely sold over 50% of their allotment, but their student section isn't even a sell-out. For shame, Rammies.

    Good luck to the Denver Sports Commission, cause they've got a decade worth of half-empty Sports Authority Field to go before they can drop the charade; and remember to blame CSU for the piss-poor attendance Saturday.

    To re-iterate: this game belongs on campus.

    Breaking with tradition, the crew and I failed to make our yearly sojourn into enemy territory to purchase a flag for burning. *While I may not have a fresh Ram flag to burn this year, I can remind everyone of what a CSU flag looks like when it gets lit on fire.* Posted for your hate-filled pleasure is the video of last year's event.* Enjoy:




    The 2011 CU/CSU game will kick off at 11:30 AM.* If you can manage to get up that early on a Saturday, yet can't make it to Denver (plenty of tickets still available, btw!), you can watch the game, with color commentary provided by CU's own Joel Klatt, on Root Sports/FSN.*
