    Thought it would be good to have a landing spot to CSU roster info & whatnot that affects the game.

    Also, news on tickets, parking, tailgating, television, etc.

    Stoked for this. Not because of the opponent or the location, but instead everything that comes with the start of football season.

    Couple updates on CSU's roster. They've taken a couple hits to their defensive backfield this summer.

    1. Devron Davis, a junior college transfer at CB, was expected to start for the Rams this season and had signed with them back on NLI day. However, he has been released from his scholarship.


    2. Justin Sweet, a projected starter at S following spring practices, was arrested for a DUI on 6/15. No word from Bobo yet on what this means, but it's hard to imagine that there won't be any suspension that includes all or part of the season opener.

    Really wish this game wasn't on Friday night. Prevents me from going or even watching it, as the High School season opens up that weekend.

    I will still take work off and be there on Friday but last year was perfect timing IMO.

    Love the game on Friday night personally. Makes it a 4day weekend for me, and I can sit around on Saturday and watch College Football all day long.

    Not sure if you were referring to that typo or not, but I meant to say "I wish is wasn't on Friday night".

    When CU gets good again, I may have to quit coaching.

    I was referring to the typo. Wasn't sure if it was a typo, sarcasm or brain fart. (y)

    Ugh hate the game in Denver, but look forward to start of season. Especially on a Friday night with traffic including Rockies traffic. I'll be doing my annual boycott of the game in Denver.

    Add Taste of Colorado and Riot Fest to that mix, and this could be the biggest cluster **** ever.

    You all need to just get down there early, crack open a beer, and relax

    I'm not sure which event I am going to be at between the RMS and Riot Fest, but I guarantee that light rail - and beer - will be a big part of the equation.

    I was flying back from Charlotte sitting next to a lady. I didn't really talk to her until we were about to land. She and her one son were heading to Ft. Collins to see her other son who goes to CSU. Turns out her son is Collin Hill. He was an early enrollee in January. He was an all state QB in S.C. He's 6' 5" and 225. Anyone know anything about him? I have a feeling he's pretty good.

    Always trust mom's evaluation about her kids' abilities.

    She didn't give me an evaluation. One of my coworkers said he'd heard the kid is supposed to be pretty good, you asshat! Haha!

    I don't know. I find it much more reliable to trust evaluations coming from 40-something dudes on a fan website.

    It would appear that you've decided to make a career in coaching. Good for you.

    Serious question TSheck, have you had to move around a lot coaching? My brother must have coached at 12 different schools as an assistant, finally got to settle somewhere as a head coach.

    No. This will be my 5th year as an assistant at the same program. Once I settled into a steady job after college, I contacted the HC I played for in high school and asked if he needed any help. I started as an assistant for our Freshman team and moved up to JV/V the following season and have been there ever since. It's not my main job or anything, just something I enjoy doing outside of work.

    That's good, my brother just about quit. He got tired of moving.
