What's new
  • In addition to the game day thread we will also have live chat during the Buffs UCLA game. Consider it the 2020 version of a tailgate. This is normally a club member only feature but will be open to all registered users this weekend.

Taking a moment to appreciate the 2020 Buffs Football season

Sorry if this has already been noted, but in case anyone interested missed it wanted to mention the NBC SportsNet (NBCSN) channel is replaying back-to-back the Buffs' 1990 (boo) and 1991 (yeah!!!) Orange Bowl games against Notre Dame, with the 1990 game scheduled to start at 7:30 PM MT, and 1991's at 10:00 PM.

Also, per the below, Mark Johnson (I assume) will be hosting a pregame for the 1991 game starting at 9:00 PM MT on the Buff's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/cubuffsfootball/).

The Pregame Watch Party will begin at 9 p.m. and streamed on the Colorado Football Facebook Page. Click that link to set a reminder for yourself on Facebook. The game will then begin at 10 p.m. MT and be televised by NBC Sports as part of its "From the Vault" series.

I’ve been meaning to ask this: now that 0 is a legal number in college, who wears it first?

Seems like KD Nixon would be a great candidate. Alfano would look badass in 0.

Has Miller ever played? It seems like he was recruited to CU by Hawkins.
One of the prizes of the 2017 class. RS in 2017, played in 10 games in 2018 and got hurt for the season in the ASU game in 2019. One of the better all around athletes on the team from most accounts, but has had problems staying healthy. Hopefully he shakes that the next two seasons, because the Secondary is going to need him badly.

True, but it won't be easy. With some, it just turns into one injury after another. Hopefully, he's more fortunate with that.
