    They watched the Boulder experience and saw Ralphie run... hope they taught them the fight song.

    They did a twitter contest. They did a random drawing for anyone who put #cugameday on twitter. Pretty sure it's trending.

    Who came up with this idea? Either way I like it, introducing out of state and Colorado kids to "The pride and tradition of the Colorado Buffaloes"" that may have been lost the past few years.

    Take it they didn't sell student season tix?... yeah not surprising. When I was fresh 2004, someone started a petition because they were closed out of the student seating.

    Did they teach the new students how to show up in time for kickoff?

    Seeing that video makes me emotional...I would give almost anything to be able to be 18 and able to play for the Buffs.

    You're going to have to talk to whomever runs the student entrance

    I agree. I hope they are addressing this as students trying to get in to the game have to deal with a completely unnecessary mess.

    We'll know they really "get it" once they do away with separate student entrances and institute a policy of "any ticket, any entrance, any time".

    It is more than that. The students want to drink and be "fashionably late". It has been like that since they remove alcohol sales. The entrance process is not to blame. Go to folsom 20 minutes before kick off and you will not see a big line in the student entrance. The line builds up at kick off. It is so annoying and it makes us look like we have an empty stadium at the start of every telecast.

    Every SEC stadium i have been to has a separate entrance for students, yet they manage to fill up before the game starts.

    Agree 100%. It comes from the students willingness to get there early.

    Great. And how are the students treated when entering the stadium?

    There is no good reason to segregate the student entrance. CU treats its students (it's CUSTOMERS) like sh*t.

    Well ****ing done CU, the Korella concert was ****ing insane...breaking in the freshman right. Finished the night off with a bunch of '**** em up' chants and 'I said it sucks. To be. A CSU ram' as we were walking out of Farrand.

    And somehow, there's more freshman talent this year than last.

    And there will be for the rest of your life. It's part of getting older. You quit looking for reasons they aren't hot, to concentrating on the reasons they are.

    While driving on campus Friday I noticed an upgrade over last years class. I'm not sure if we pulled in the 5 star talent but we are now overloaded with 4 stars. Last year was more of a Stanford looking class.
