    Umm, no. This is 100% money related. CU is desperate for money right now.

    Short sighted. Losing games doesn't earn money. They need to schedule to guarantee a bowl bid and build from there.

    I agree that this is all about the money. They need some and Ohio State wants a win over a BCS conference team. easy as pie.

    Wonder if they're having problems financing their buyout...

    yeah, at least Colorado was smart enough to get paid for it. Scheduling Utah is doing nothing for ISU but causing us headaches.

    I think it's more for TV exposure than $$$. It seems to me a full house in Boulder against whoever would net a lot more than $1.4 mil. Plus concession and parking income.

    There isn't a bowl game out there that would make them $1.4 million, after expenses teams are lucky if they break even going to bowl games. With bowl games part of the payout goes to the conference and none of this $1.4 million will go to the PAC 10 or Big 12 if they are still in the Big 12 next year.

    Colorado's athletic dept. is not exactly strong financially. This 1.4 million is a nice chunk of change that can go towards paying penalty fees for leaving the Big 12 or for Hawkins' buyout if they can him. Plus it will most likely be on national TV.

    If OSU is willing to throw that kind of payment Colorado's way, then why not?

    I think they will have trouble financing a Kia before too long.
