    Love this about Colorado. Quote from Orangebloods

    Sources told Orangebloods.com that Colorado most likely gambled and lost when it came to moving to the Pac-10. CU will be on the hook for a buyout penalty between $6 million and $7 million. The Buffaloes couldn't even afford football coach Dan Hawkins' $3 million buyout.

    Sources said Colorado felt Baylor coming for its invitation to the Pac-10 and was so confident the rest of the Big 12 was going to fall apart that it accepted the Pac-10's invitation before any of the other five schools (Texas, OU, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Texas A&M).

    Would never take them back. They made their bed and now it is time to lie in it.

    Re: Love this about Colorado. Quote from Orangebloods

    We took MU back. Remember there was a request that they be pushed out of the conference. I would take them back. Brings back the Denver market and sets up the stage for Nebraska to come back (although they would probably not come because of there foolish pride) If we got both teams back that is the ultimate slap in the face to the Big 10.


    Best of luck

    Could accept them back with a major penalty.

    Remember part of the price Colorado will pay by coming back is the same price M U will pay. A loss of pride, and ISU gains by someone else being the whipping boy of the conference.


    Best of luck

    Let's agree to take them back, only if they sign Dan Hawkins to a 20 year contract.

    They won't come back. They "fit so well academically" with the Pac-11 Conference. Pac-11 Conference is dead now. USC with sanctions. It all blows up in their face. That is what they get. You reap what you sow.
