    It's time for powder blue. I realize that with UCLA coming in, nobody will be able to tell the difference between a protest and a regular fan of the opposition. I don't care. I'm not going to give this current group the respect that comes with wearing black and gold. They haven't earned it. If you're going to play like a Fairbanks coached team, you should look like a Fairbanks coached team.


    POWDER BLUE, MIKE, POWDER BLUE!!!

    It is worse than a bad idea. It suggests the distinct possibility of a mental collapse!!!

    Perhaps your cable provider did not offer the CBS College Sports channel this past Saturday?

    The alternative is not showing up at all.

    I understand this and therefore do not think it is the best idea. However, somehow, someone needs to get through to these players. They don't seem to care that they are an absolute embarrasment. Where is the effort?

    Just hold your tailgate on your lawn. I understand not wanting to give it up though. Tailgating at CU is awesome.

    Uhh, CU won the powder blue game against aTm. So the "it hurts the players", or "suggest mental collapse" ideas are misplaced. I was there. Many more than 200 had their powder blue on (Sorry Dave, it's true). Fellow AB'er Clif (haven't seen him around for a long time, but shout out is hereby given), gave my boy and me tix.

    I, for one, couldn't do the powder blue that day. I doubt I will at fUCLA. Honestly, I think I'll just be watching at home. Heading into year number 7 of crappity crap crap FB has just about done it for me.

    Not showing up hurts the admin more than the players due to lack of $$$. Thats all they care about. It should also piss off the team. Operative word is should...

    I'm not even excited to go to games anymore. Struggling to find a reason to go to UCLA. They are gonna hang 100 on us.

    I'm honestly considering asking my dad how important it is to him to be in the stadium at kickoff. I have a lot more fun in the parking lot.

    I wouldn't even show up. Nothing will get the message across to the administration like a half empty stadium. Enough is enough.

    An empty stadium would send a much louder message.

    I won't do powder blue. Powder blue made sense because of our disgust with the admin retaining Hawkins. This is a different scenario. I honestly think Embree and staff are trying hard, they just don't have the ability to do the job.

    I guess I have a feeling the admin realizes how pissed off the fans are. But maybe I overestimate them. I'd say the big boy boosters carry a lot more clout with them than does the everyday fan.

    I badly want to do that, but it will be Mrs. HouBuff's first trip to Folsom.

    Got ugly in the student section that day. Multiple fights between kids wearing blue and those not involved. Of course, knowing our students, it was just coincidence and had nothing to do with football.

    Honestly, I've come to the point where there are just better ways for me to spend a day than by going to Folsom on gamedays.

    For the record I just heard on the radio that its breast cancer awareness day and the Buffs are encouraging you to wear pink to the stadium..

    I'm going because I love being in Folsom. I love the tailgating before the game. I'll just get in late and leave early.

    I'm not talking about wearing blue for one game. I'm talking about wearing blue for every game until they make some changes.

    OTOH, maybe I'll just not go. I'm sure they'd prefer that.
