    Final look back on football season: CU = "overrated?" Is that fair?

    I read the recent thread regarding this and wanted to throw my two cents in. Long story short is yeah, the team maybe was a bit overrated in its final standing of the regular season. But who the hell cares?? Recruiting has taken off like a bat out of hell, attendance at Folsom is great, and...

    Game recap from San Antonio

    It had been nine years since the University of Colorado Buffaloes last competed in a bowl game, nine years of torture and heartbreak since their loss to Alabama in the 2007 Independence Bowl. But the No. 10 Buffaloes did the improbable in 2016, going from worst to first in the Pac-12 South and...

    Mac, Phil Lindsay and Sefo Liufau quotes: post Alamo Bowl

    SEFO LIUFAU (opening statement:) The game sucked. It’s kind of obvious. I don’t know what you guys want me to say. It’s pretty frustrating the way kind of things happened. Just didn’t come out with all things firing. I think in the beginning we moved the ball a lot as an offense but weren’t...

    Regarding the day of college football on Saturday, which saw many upsets and the level of excitement for the final two, huge, contests vs. Wazzu and Utah. Sefo Liufau: I don't know who lost but the most important thing is that we came out here and we won today. It was a bit of ups and downs and...

    What to make of CU's win over Zona

    You shouldn't be that happy with CU's win over Zona. Last week after Tuesday's practice, I asked coach Mac if he at all used Wazzu's throttling of Zona last week as a gauge of what to expect from his team; would CU's performance vs. Arizona be fair to compare with Washington State's game...

    Buffs eek out 20-10 win vs. UCLA, move to 7-2

    A two-year-old child attempting to eat spaghetti with no bib would have been less sloppy than the No. 21 Colorado Buffaloes’ 20-10 victory over the UCLA Bruins Thursday night at Folsom Field. The Buffs and Bruins combined for an eyebrow-raising 224 yards of total penalty yards in the contest...

    Stanford = Sefo Liufau's worst game of season

    It's not that senior quarterback Sefo Liufau played horrendously. I think the word "decent" is a fair term to describe his performance. But compared to the level of play he's displayed in the games that he's played in so far this season, Saturday's game vs the Cardinal was particularly ugly...

    Stanford's time at the top is up.

    I believe that by the end of this upcoming Saturday, the Colorado Buffaloes will be 6-2 and will have knocked down another Pac-12 powerhouse by beating the Stanford Cardinal. Last season, Stanford was the team that really gave the 2015 Buffaloes a wake up call. Its 42-10 thrashing of CU...

    CU/ASU: quotes, after game thoughts

    First of all...#26 ranking. Wowwww of course. Missed the Top 25 by a smidgen but that's alright. Once we smash Stanford next weekend that'll be a non issue. Of importance: Jimmie Gilbert entered this weekend tied for the nation in forced fumbles. He became just the fifth Buffalo to force five...

    Michigan notes, con't

    Hey everyone, sorry I've been MIA for a bit. The drive from Boulder to Ann Arbor was quite miserable. Due to a terrible storm that hit most of ****braska and Iowa, I had to stop for the night in Gretna, NE (wonderful town, by the way.) But long story short, I've made it to Michigan Stadium and...
