The worst part is that I, as a Chatfield graduate as well, got the same virus the team had the weekend before. It was the norovirus, not food poinsoning, we were at a party that 33 of the 58 people got sick, but 6 month old babies got sick so food poisoning was ruled out. Not a fun time. Feel bad for those guys, it totally sucks all the energy out of you.
The two local rags have gone downhill the last few years. All you get in the RMN is a little notes thing, about a column and a half, for each area team. Once or twice a week, they will do an "in depth" column. The Post isn't much better. But it isn't just college football. Pro baseball coverage was a total joke until we made the run. All the locals care about are the Broncos. I just think they've been slashing their budgets to the point where they don't pay their reporters to cover the teams.
The Denver Post and RMN are functioning under some joint opperating agreement. Basically economic forces dictates that the Denver market can't support two major daily papers.
It wouldn't surprise me one bit if cutbacks continue at the RMN until it folds or gets sold off.
When it comes to Buff coverage, the Longmont and Boulder papers are excelling, while the Denver Post and RMN are in decline. Bummer.
the Denver Post did not even have a side note or anything the day after Dizon was announced as a Butkus finalist. Zip, zilch, nada.
