    Colorado

    I haven't seen CU play, but results probably don't lie could Buffs be the worst BCS conference team?

    Down 28-0 @Fresno at end of 1Q following home losses to CSU and Sac State.

    Re: Colorado

    I just saw that score and was thinking the same thing. They're not good at all, no matter how you define it. Unless you're trying to say they're good at being bad.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    I just realized -- it was even the END of first quarter. Now it's 35-0 with 2 minutes left in 1Q.

    Any big boost to recruiting because of the West Coast presence hasn't materialized yet.

    It doesn't seem reasonable to assume that the fans from the WC teams will travel to Boulder. Tough drive in the late Fall.

    CU's move isn't paying dividends yet.

    Any buyer's remorse?

    Can't recruit texas and the midwest well anymore either. Have a nice life. CU later.

    Re: Colorado

    Look at it this way - if they hand't bolted, the PAC may have taken the 4 pack. I think CU jumping early made it tough for the texas schools to move w/o taking BU along.

    I can't remember the entire realignment fiasco, but that may have kept the XII from shattering by way of Pac-16.

    Re: Colorado

    people are talking out here that Embry was such a bad hire, that its going to cost the AD his job as well. Good thing Buffs fans are more worried about other things and probably haven't even noticed.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Colorado

    After watching their game against CSU, I figured it would be a long season, but WOW they are awful.

    I think the PAC is a good cultural fit for them ,but I think it hurts their recruiting big time. You lose the good pipeline into Texas, and the California market is already saturated by the Cal schools, Arizona schools, and even Oregon. They are going to struggle for awhile I think.

    I see an 0-12 season for the Buffs. Hard to believe how awful they've become.

    Here is their Schedule: Colorado 2012 Schedule - Buffaloes Home and Away - ESPN

    0-12 is a strong possibility.

    **** em. They got what they wanted, and they've wanted the PAC for decades...even before the Big 8 days. I love vacationing in CO, but that state has been backwards for a long, long time.
