    A few weeks ago I headed out to Boulder to complete a stadium review of Folsom Field. The review is complete and can be viewed here:

    http://www.stadiumjourney.com/stadiums/folsom-field-s412

    In short, I had an amazing time and gave a pretty solid ranking. A few fans on the NetBuffs board were concerned that I would ding you due for poor attendance but I was actually extremely impressed that the stadium was as full and loud as it was given the record at the time and struggles over the past few years.

    Let me know what you think about the review and especially if you notice anything inaccurate.

    I'm concerned that you have been talking to NetBuffs.

    Good stuff. However, Kordell and Rashaan did not lead us to a NC. Might want to replace it with Hagan and Bieniemy.

    How did we get a 4/5 for food and beverage when we don't have the beverage?:huh:

    Other than that, a good write up. Thanks.

    One criticism: Most of us do not consider Utah as a rival. Nice article. Thanks!

    Really? My memory is terrible then. I could have sworn the NC year was with Kordell.

    Beverage includes non-alcoholic drinks...ha. Many universities don't allow alcohol so that wouldn't be fair criteria for most college stadium reviews.

    Ok, just put in a request to have the Championship sentence updated. Thanks for catching that. Should be fixed in a few minutes.

    I think that the 94 team would have beaten the 90 team. It would have at least been a very entertaining game.

    Agreed on both counts. If we had thrown the ball against Neb from the get go we win that game and go undefeated into the NC game. Instead we tried to prove we could run it down their throats and struggled. End up destroying ND by 40 or something.

    As for the article. Buffalo don't "gallup". They stampede or trample or rumble or something. But not gallup.

    Agreed. I was merely pointing out that the '94 was straight bad-***** and they put us in the fiesta bowl v a craptastic nd team that we subsequently crushed...as we should have. And it was the first time in, like, 40 years that the Irish wore the green jerseys. I was just upset that we weren't playing a better team.

    This honestly made me spit my dinner out in laughter. Thanks guys. I'll describe the manner in which Ralphie runs with a bit stronger verb.
