    CU Muscle Milk

    Anyone else from Colorado, or anywhere else for that matter, getting advertisements for Muscle Milk (featuring the CU logo) popping up on CF boards? I'm sure it's my location, I just find it interesting that I come on a Cyclone website and get ads featuring a conference rival.

    Reminds me of when on facebook, got an ad for "Download a Hawkeye ringtone". I deleted it, facebook asked me why. Thankfully "I consider the ad offensive" was one of the options.....

    Perhaps that's true, but I'm guessing most people sitting behind a keyboard on message boards don't need Muscle Milk. However, for a fanbase so inane that they would seemingly storm the field in their own spring scrimmage, using CU to advertise around here might make sense.

    Re: CU Muscle Milk

    It is location based, the ad server is reading your IP and then skinning the bottle with the team colors of the most popular CFB team in your market.

    Makes some sense, I guess. If Muscle Milk wanted to get their money's worth, they would put I-STATE logos on for everybody on this forum.

    That's weird. I'm in Dallas, TX and all the ads I get are for Ames and Des Moines.

    I always chuckle when I get the Es Tas ad, as it reminds me of the 2.50 Jagerbombs, that suppliment my diet in college.

    Re: CU Muscle Milk

    Northern Illinois uses "MM" as its official nutritional drink. If a school pays for the product in bulk, MM puts the school logo on it since that school is under a contract with them.

    What you are describing is how google adwords works, Google scans the page and serve ads based on content. The tall ad in the very bottom left should operate in this fashion.

    Different set of ads those look to be hard coded by the webmaster.
