Colorado Buffaloes Football - CU's Official Page BLACKOUT! Colorado vs. Georgia on Sat, Oct. 2nd at 5:00pm. Everyone wear black and get there early!
Good, I have lots of black shirts from the CAL game ready to go...
I may have to change outfits at each quarter like the Academy Awards host. I showed Alfred Williams my original 1990 championship tshirt on Saturday after the game and he seemed unimpressed. Guess it wasn't like the ring, or anything I earned, just a faded 20-year old shirt from May D&F.
They just started wearing black two years ago. It's their alternate for their blackout games.
is it? oh ok good to know
Night game at home = Blackout...always.
Oh damn. I have to go to Boulder to see the Buffs whomp the Georgia Bulldogs.
My niece and nephew are both Georgia grads. His job during school was to go to players classes and make eye contact with them so they knew he was there. Knowshon and Mathew Stafford were two of his 'clients'. He said they were both good students.
Lets go Buffs! This is a winnable game.
I hate UGA. **** 'em.
Not true - black is one of their original school colors.
Dumb idea, IMO. Black is their school color, not ours. We should've done a Gold Out.
I do think blackouts look awesome on TV at night but I question the choice of this game. Prob our only night game of the year though so I guess if you are going to do it, now is the time. Whatever.
I'll wear the same thing as the last several games. Light blue denim CU shirt.
I'll wear blue. Plati should have no problem finding me in the crowd.
Why the hate? It makes for an insane atmosphere and looks damn cool. I am wearing my black national championship throwback jersey (which I was gonna do anyways). Blackout game should be goddamn fun. Hope the team does the fans effort justice. When does the tailgate start?
Until we get a new coach, I wear the blue. I will have a black 1989 Big 8 Champion hat on though.
May D&F made me laugh. How about Joslins?
I'm confused, how is black more of Georgia's color than ours? The Buffs have worn black for decades, as I recall UGA wears red at home.
wearing black for the 1990 Team. They don't need or deserve to see blue on their night. AFter this game tho, I anticipate blue making a big comeback.
I gave the 90 team respect by shaking their hand in class the next semester. I will give them a standing O just like I did Big Al Saturday; they will know they are appreciated, blue or black.
Because it's actually one of their school colors. CU's school colors are silver & gold.
Doesn't matter, I guess. The blackout will look good on TV & hopefully the fans are in attendance and in their seats by kickoff.
I am aware of CU's official colors (Hoorah for the Silver & the Gold), but the notion that we should not wear black because it is one of UGA's colors is pretty weak.
UGA wears black about once a year - no one will confuse a Black Out in Boulder as honoring the away team
Anything that gets the students energized and exicited to scream their heads off is a GREAT idea....all previous blackouts have had the Student Section packed before Ralphie even runs on the field...I expect nothing different this time around as well!
I know that. They use black as an outline not main color. First black jersey game was in 2007. Black helmets in 2009. So yes they did just start wearing it.
i would have waitied until next Monday to announce the black out. 2 weeks is an eternity in "student time".
but never too early to start the black helmet rumors....:thumbsup:
Meh who cares if it's Georgia's colors too. A lot of teams have similar colors. I don't see Oklahoma having "cream" outs when they play Nebraska because their crimson is similar to red.
That would be Penn State
That would be indecent exposure.
