What's our "rock bottom"?

only 106th, there's still more room to go down.
130 programs in FBS. Some added within those 15 years and wouldn't have many total wins but are averaging more wins recently, so we won't even need to be worse than we've been to drop. So we've got that going for us.

Pathetic. I ****ing hate the CU administration.
What is really sad is that this administration in the time it has destroyed the athletic department has also failed in terms of the prestige and reputation of the entire university.

Let take this back to the year 2000.

Since then the football program has gone in the dumps. What university program in Boulder can we point at and say this is a program which has become nationally recognized as a leader in the field? Which program is looked at as the leader in the nation in innovation and research?

CU has had some programs which carried strong national (or international) reputations. Aerospace, some of the engineering programs, business, and some others.

Which of these is looked at as being stronger now than it was, which are weaker. We used to have a bunch of Nobel prize winners on campus, how many recently?

Point is that while not as bad as the football program the entire perception of the university has gone downhill under the administration we have had over the past two decades.

Now the University of Colorado system has made some significant gains. The Medical Center Campus is an amazing place that draws attention from all over. The Colorado Springs campus is growing by leaps and bounds and is being recognized nationally as more than just a satellite campus.

In 20 years what point of excellence, what shining example of innovation, of leadership in its field have we seen out of Boulder? We have seen the administration grow much larger and more costly, we have seen huge increases in the cost of attending, but what point of pride can we point to.

So well said. We used to be discussed among the finer public schools in the country.

Fast forward to now and I saw one ranking where we were behind Iowa State!

They have been an unmitigated failure for twenty years. In a word…pathetic.

When Phil D retires, I will be very curious to see what the articles about it will highlight as his accomplishments.

I suspect it will be longevity, positions held and committees/ boards he sat upon.

In other words, nothing of note.

Y'all, the 2022 version of Boulder is the worst. It's dominated by virtue signaling neo-liberal elites who only care about themselves and their already cush lives/bank accounts. To make progress you need to take risks, accept new ways of thinking, and make sacrifices. The lack of willingness to do that applies to the university and football.

I'm a progressive and it's embarrassing for Boulder to be referred to as a place for progressive thinking.

For those who are better at researching this, has there been any correlation with an increase in applications or general donations to the uni following a few of our notable seasons over the last 20 years? (i.e. 2016)

I have a feeling we haven't reached it yet, but it's going to be deep
Remember when we were kids and thought if we dug a deep enough hole we might come out in China.

With this administration and coaching staff we may find out.
 

Always BUFF

I post stupid ****

I just want to see good football again....my conservatism only goes so far then all bets are off.

Listening to some vinyl REO Nine Lives...
Only the Strong Survive...relative to my thoughts about Buff football.
I can see where you're going but I don't know the way.

Rock Bottom:

1. Buffs go 0-12 and average 14.6 ppg white giving up 41.8 ppg. The closest loss is 14 points.
2. Three players are arrested for running a prostitution ring out of a motor home in Broomfield.
3. A key player is dismissed from the team and charged with felony assault after beating the hell out of a small civilian outside a bar.
4. KD loses it during a presser after a horrible loss and turns the table over after screaming at the press "You're ALL a bunch of MFers !!!"
5. The high-up mucky mucks that run CU convene a soul-searching commission to study "the ongoing role of athletics at CU".
6. Tad Boyle resigns to take a B12 job after because of #5, citing "the toxic stench that has engulfed Boulder and this university".
7. Three hoops players follow Boyle to his new job.

So cheer up guys - we are really far from Rock Bottom. Just use your imagination, and remember: Things Can Always Get Worse.

Crazy to say this but I think I'm here a lot more for the community of people than I am for interest in the football team. I'll keep watching but I have no hope of seeing anything worth watching from the team.
This.

You're all a bunch of assholes, but it's still fun to have dialogues about houses, vacations, cooking, family, skiing, weather, and laughing at the train wreck that is CU football.

There are some benefits to having a ****ty football team. I don't have to figure out a couple fall weekend trips specifically to places and times that CU is playing. I don't even have to worry about when any games are being played.

If I happen to have a little time to watch college football, I'll see if the buffs are playing, but if I don't it just means I'll probably enjoy whatever it was I'm doing more than getting pissed off at the dumpster fire PD has made of CU football.

Tad would retire instead. But the rest is spot on.
