Moving the game to back to Invesco was a huge mistake. The stadium atmosphere yesterday was very sterile, for the lack of a better term (suggest one if you can). We got to the stadium at 6:45 AM ( course we had to tailgate in the line waiting to get into the parking lots when they opened). The die-hard core were certainly in the lots tailgating to the max but that core is just not big enough - The C lot still had a lot of empty spaces at 10:30 in the morning. I have no idea where they got the 61,000 fans in attendance. I estimated they had about 48,000 - Woody Paige thought they had 40,000. The CU side was not packed but it was probably 80% full. Anyone who claims to be a CSU fan needs to be truly embarrassed by their support level yesterday. Their side could not of been much over 35% full. Really happy with the win but it did not feel as satisfying as beating a Nebraska or KSU team. This match up is no longer a big front range event like it use to be and it probably has to do with both programs being down and also a big alienation of the local fan base.... Back in 1998, when this game was first moved to Denver - this game would sell out and it would be an evening broadcast - nationally televised - it would have huge TV ratings. This game is generating little interest locally which does not bode well for the local college football support.
