    Hey everyone, just thought I'd take a second to introduce myself.

    I'm a new CU Buffs fan. I know, I know, it is a bad time to become a new fan of the team but that is okay with me. I moved from out of state to North Denver this year and had a void with college football that needed to be filled. After looking around at the Colorado college teams, I chose to be a Buffs fan.

    I will be attending my first CU game at the end of the month when UCLA visits. Is there any tailgaiting and general gameday traditions that you guys can direct me to? Also maybe general rules of this message board?

    Thanks it is appreciated. GO BUFFS!

    Welcome aboard...I feel like the captain of the Titanic when I say that, but welcome anyway. You'll want to check out Sackygate. Sackman is a poster here who provides one of the most welcoming tailgate experiences around. Other than that, the M.O. around here is don't take anybody too seriously, everything is in good fun...now get me a sammich.

    Drop by Sackygate and say hi to the crew

    Band comes by that spot before kickoff, you´re fairly close to Ralphie who you can say hello to before the game (remember, it´s a she) and if you´ve never seen her run, you can do so before kickoff. The team runs out behind her.

    I hail from Wyoming, so that is a standard thing for me.

    Colorado probably is not going to fill this void if you are looking for BCS football. If you are looking for half-ass attempts at coaching and playing we got you covered.

    I'm okay with that as I have confidence CU can eventually turn things around. Better than what CSU has going on. Air Force is very enjoyable to watch and I have the utmost respect for their players. But I'm proud to be apart of an elite BCS conference.

    Allsome!

    Some day, you'll be telling bandwagon fans that you stepped up and decided to be part of the change when CU Football was at its worst and CU Basketball was just arriving on the national scene.

    As frustrated as I am right now, I firmly believe that this year is a starting point for something special.

    There's a huge part of the Kind Me that thinks we should be calling SnowSailor every rotten name in the book, cussing him every which way and doing everything we can to turn him away from being a CU Football fan at this time.

    Someone could make the argument, "Make him a fan now, ruin him forever."

    Maybe it could be like one of those pre-employment medical exams. "Got a strong stomach? Any backbone at all? Guts? Ever had the bejeepers kicked out of you, and then again the next day, and the next? And do you want to have that happen again?"

    Welcome aboard, though. Not sure we're really being good mates by being kind-!

    Oh. SENSE OF HUMOR. Please bring one. VERY CRITICAL. "Question 1 on Fan Exam: Can you laugh at any adversity? Can you find a silver lining in the deepest, sickest toilet bowl?"

    Nut's got the dead-on attitude! Yes. Absolutely. Take that approach - CU Football will rise.
