    Not that we don't already have enough, but CU appeared in the media twice today.

    From the Omaha World Herald:
    "In the 1990s, the top 10 programs in college football (by winning percentage) were Florida State, Nebraska, Florida, Penn State, Michigan, Tennessee, Miami, Texas A&M, Ohio State and Colorado.

    How many of those were also top-10 programs in the 2000s?

    Two.

    By winning percentage, Florida State was 21st, Nebraska 20th, Penn State 30th, Michigan 23rd, Tennessee 22nd, Miami 11th, Texas A&M 59th and Colorado 79th. Only Ohio State (fourth) and Florida (sixth) made the top 10 again."

    and

    Scout ranks all teams from 2009, CU comes in at #99

    #99 sucks...but atleast it's ahead of CSU.

    Those clowns can't win for winning.

    The Scout article stated the big mystery that all the college football world is wondering about with CU.

    heck, "do or die"? i thought the main perception was "breakout year". or was that the year before, or the year before that?

    While it is depressing it's also why CFB is so great. I hate that CU isn't a perennial top 10 program anymore, but who knows what the 10s will do for us. The 00s treated USC and Texas well. There is no guarantee that any program that had big success will keep it throughout this decade. Sanctions and/or coaches leaving or retiring can have a big effect. Who knows how long it'll be before USC finds another "Pete Carroll" that can sustain success, not just have it one season amidst seasons of mediocrity.
