that's the 50/50 game. They will be 2-2 with losses to ORST. and Neb. But my almanac predicts a Buffalo sized Blizzard sweeping through Boulder. We win on a late score. ASU comes in at 1-4. We beat them by 2 scores. Half way through the season we are at a cool 4-2. Momentum is with us. But we hit the Iron Curtain. @Oregon @USC and Stanford. Arguably the three best teams in the Pac-12. We lose to the Ducks and Trojans by a combined 75 points. 4-4 is our record. But on a Saturday night with bowl implications on the line, the 7-1 Cardinals come to town. This is it, Folsom is shining the skys are clear, the ESPN camera men are cleaning their lenses.Pre-Game, Bohn comes in, he sits down and makes a speech. "Boys, I hate the color red. Any team with the color red deserves tolose. Over the past century we had a worthy nemesis in Nebraska, we have moved on. We are supposed to hate Utah. Every one says so. Not me. NOT ME! Utah? They aren't worthy to be our rival. They don't have tradition of COLORADO! You know who I hate Stanford! Those pricks think they're better then every one else. Well I got news for you. They aren't.. Did anyof you men attend our basketball games over the past season? If you did then you would know, only one team beat us twice. Stanford. Don't let them beat you again." Tony Jones has a game to remember, After the first quarter the score is tied 10-10. The crowd is going crazy. But then the second quarter hits. And everything goes wrong. We give the ball away 3 times. We go into halftime with the score 27-13. ESPN announcers are saying the game is over. Embree turns on the commentary in the locker room and doesn't say a word. Analyst say things like "The Buffs are too young" "They aren't good enough" "This game is over" and then Kirk Herby makes the mistake he says the dreaded words. "The Buffs had a good season with a young team, They will lose tonight and lose twice more to go 5-7... They will miss out on a bowl." Embree turns off the tv. The room is total silent. Then EB stands up and says one word... "pray". The official walks in and tells the coaches halftime is over. The football gods heard the prays. Snow. Sleet. Snow. Tony Jones takes over and runs the ball up the middle of the Stanford Defence. We are back in the game going into the 4th quarter. Stanford is winning 30-27. With 10 minutes in the fourth Tony get hit hard. Dirty tackle. No penalty. The crowd goes in an uproar. His night ends with 23 carries for 186 yards and 3 TDs. The game goes in to a stalemate before Stanford takes a punt back to midfield and the Cardinals push for a field goal. 2 minutes to goand we lose the football on a tipped pass. David Shaw has the game in hand, but he wants more. He gets aggresive he wants to win by double digits. 54 seconds to go, Stanford's in the red zone, they throw a post out to a wide out in the endzone, Yuri Wright has him man-on-man and goes up for the jump ball, strips the ball from a receivers hands in mid air, lands down and maintains his footing. He sprints... :48 seconds to go, jukes out a tight end... stiff arms the full back. Kenneth Crawley throws a mean block, spin move off the slot receiver and Yuri has a straight line to the endzone. He walks right in , lays the ball down and goes straight to the espn camera man and puts his gloves on the lense. There are words. "Tweet this". The buffs and yuri trend world wide on twitter. The buffs win 34-33. Embree gets his beloved brick. We are one win away from a bowl. We lose to Arizona the next week in a hard fought game. But RichRods Spread gets the best of our young defence. We contend with Udub but also lose. We go into our last week against Utah. Our "Unworthy Rival". We dominate the #19 Utah Utes and shut down their offence. We end the season 6-6. With wins over #8 Stanford and #19 Utah. Lets just say we have a good bowl game and a really good recruiting class. The future looks bright for the buffs. We weathered the storm. We're Back.
