    Remember how big a deal was made out of the increased CU presence in California during the Pac 12 switch? That it allows us to reconnect with our fans and alumni in CA and also allows us to present the school to the recruits in the area?

    at Cal 7-52 L
    v Cal 33-36 L
    at Stanford 7-48 L
    v USC 17-42 L
    at UCLA 6-45 L
    v Sacramento State 28-30 L
    at Fresno 14-69 L
    v UCLA 14-42 L
    at USC 6-50 L

    Since 2010 we have played 9 games against teams from the state of California, losing 9 and losing 7 of those by 3 TDs+.

    Do they in all honesty believe the alumni and fans in California care for this? Do they honestly believe this is a way to present themselves to our Californian fans and alumni? Do they honestly believe people want to see this?

    Holy hell. We've been outscored 264-40 in games played in California the last 3 seasons. 264-40. What we're offering the west coast alums right now is the opportunity to be humiliated up close and personal....

    The move to the Pac 12 may be backfiring on us. Not that I think it's a bad move, but are we sure we want those alumni to be exposed to heretofore unknown levels of sucktitude?

    i had great tickets for the usc game and didn't even go. like i need to sit there and watch them get annihilated again. i've sat through enough ridiculous beatings where CU is out of the game in the first quarter and completely outcoached and outmanned and a total laughingstock to everyone in the stadium.

    As a resident of Big12 (and Conf USA, and according to that A&M billboard, SEC) country, I for one am mildly relieved that this season's blow-out losses have not been within 900 miles of my residence.

    and another example--- my friends/family that went to the usc game (to root for usc, by the way)-- they moved up their dinner reservation and left at the half.

    they said the buffs look absolutely petrified in pre-game warmups. oh, and that several high school teams in LA have better skill players.

    Did you get names in case any of 'em might attempt to academically qualify for a CU scholarship?

    Ok, right now I live just outside LA and i still had no desire to go to yesterday's game. As a fan who went to the Cal away game a couple years ago and the UCLA game last season, i have seen enough pitiful performances. glad I didn't even give going to the game a second thought. can't wait for bball season...

    Our connection will come through basketball...CU football is irrelevant.

    Do you honestly believe Benson , DiStephano and Bohn give a sh*t? I don't. This is the state of CU football.
