    CCsquared is probably the only rational one, but I guess we can enjoy the atmosphere for a while....

    ramnation is actually busy praising MMac this morning. I had to revert to Java 1.0 to read the posts, but they are afraid of CU and our progress.

    They should be. They have only been really competitive with CU when CU was at its absolute low watermark. That low watermark commenced with the hiring of D-2 Danny, and the ill-fated tenure of Embree. Those eight years are some of the very worst CU football ever. Still, CU went 5-3 versus the goats for those eight years. If CU puts together any kind of a competent program, I expect the games between the schools to return to the historical norm where CU wins the game 75 to 80% of the time, and by huge margins. It would be awful hard on your average CSU fan to lose their Super Bowl that often.

    GB was 4-3 against the Goats. If his teams hadn't been so slow to start each season, the Rams may be just as disinterested in the game as we are.

    You mean like losing to Fresno at home the same year as we blasted #1 Nebraska?

    I'm still ticked about that game. Probably cost a chance to go to the Rose Bowl and shot at the title.

    I liked the approach that M2 took to the game this year. He took the game seriously and put a full and solid effort into it.

    If this approach continues two positive things will happen. One is that we will get off to quicker starts and put ourselves into position and frame of mind to have better seasons.

    The second is that as we improve we will start to rightly blast the sheep into oblivion to a point that their fans start to wish the game wasn't being played and start wishing it would just go away.

    I'm not so sure lamb fans will ever wish this game away. Without this game they are relegated to secondary status in the state in perpetuity. With the game, it gives them an opportunity to upset us and claim "#1" status for a year. It is their moment in the sun and they won't let it go.

    As is often said the game is a lose/lose for us and on the flip side it is a win/win for them. They get the shot at knocking us off but if they lose it's expected or when it's more evenly matched they can just rationalize the loss away. Take this year's excuses for example, "We beat ourselves" "It was just two plays that beat us" etc.

    That "it was just two plays that beat us" shows how bad they are at math. Even without those two plays, they are not ahead. And did they forget the game ended with us showing mercy by taking a knee on their side of the field?

    Now they're thinking CU (and the Pac12) will allow the game to be moved to the day after Thanksgiving so a "real rivalry game" can be played "when both teams have all the kinks worked out".

    No, I am not making that up.

    That being said, I propose we don't start anymore CSU threads until August 2014.

    I'll second that with an added amendment that we start one for the basketball game.

    Didn't the Pac 12 add a rule that all non-conference games have to be played in the first 3 games of the season, with the exception of the Stanford/USC rivalry games against ND grandfathered in? I think even Utah had to push up the BYU game. I don't see anyone clamoring to make an exception for CU/CSU.

    The most delusional of them will always want it but the majority could be persuaded if we started thumping them by 35+ points every year and taking away any hope they have of getting a win. We need to turn it into a body bag game. A game like Bama is going to put on them where they are so overmatched that the injuries coming out of the game impact them the rest of the year because it is such a missmatch.

    We are a long way from there right now but we have been that good before and could/should do it again.

    Was looking at their schedule earlier. Rams could lose nine games this year.

    Damn it! Now I'm gritting my teeth again! Darn well did cost us; just like many of GB's lazy/questionable tactics did.

    Teams evolve as a season goes along. Losing to Fresno may have been the best thing for that team.

    that is a very good example of CSU's naivete as to how close these two programs are. The reason this series has been so close lately is the fact that it's been played as the first game of the season. When it is, CSU literally gameplans for CU for a solid month before the season. When they can't, CU is even more dominant. CU is something like 8-1 when this isn't the first game of the season.
