Frankly, Denver Post, I don't give a crap

    The Post had a long article about Joey O'Conner and a shorter one about Alex Kozan. I don't give a rat's ass about either one of them. Give me articles about in state kids who are staying in state. Nothing against those guys, but they aren't Coloradans. Am I bitter? Yeah, I admit, I am a little bit. Colorado isn't like Texas or California where there are tons of talented kids. So, yeah, I do admit that when a top tier talent from in state choosed to blow off CU, I get a little pissed.

    I read it and thought it was a decent article. The last couple months for him must have been crazy.

    I do not begrudge him because he was upfront with his desire to leave the state.

    I had the same feelings of bitterness and sour grapes. Then when I consider how many games he'll probably win at OSU vs. potential wins over the same period at CU I get even more bitter.

    But rather than direct it at the blameless kid, I prefer to take it out on the Fraudulent Hawkins and the head in the sand combo of Benson/DiStefano.

    Thought the article was pretty weak.

    I don't begrudge him either. At the same time, if the Denver Post is going to write about recruiting, I want to read about the University of Colorado recruits and, I assume, the rammies want to read about their recruits. I don't want to read about an ohio st. recruit.

    Even when Colorado is back on top, we will still lose some kids who don't want to stay in state.

    You should start doing in-homes for the recruits.

    And I only care about the kids who stay. I don't want to read full page articles on the guys that leave. I don't hate 'em. I'm not all that mad at 'em. I just don't care about why they chose ohio state or whatever school. I'd rather read a full page article on a kid from California who is coming to CU.

    I thought people in Colorado hated when people from California moved to Colorado.

    Only if they can't play football. We have standards, man. At least people from other places want to move here.

    Meh. I don't expect my kids to stay in state. There is a great big world out there.

    I actually liked the post today (i know, i know). 4 Articles on CU, 0 on csu. Sounds about right.
