Hmmmm 2015 is shaping up to be a possible decent Non-Con schedule. BYU and So Miss at home and at Miami. No idea what these programs will be like in 2015 but right now not exactly a cupcake schedule. (notice I did't say it was a KILLER one so don't go off the deep end on that little statement).
I was sitting in the skybox section directly above the student section, called up a former board member who was at the Fox and Hound with 50 or so other Husker fans to tell him the news before it hit the t.v.--the cheer that went up when he told them what was going on almost blew my eardrum out.
If you look at the video of the stands being cleared out you can see one lone fan in the CU section to the left of the video wearing red, standing and cheering the removal. It was a guy from Hawaii whose sister gave him a ticket right after he moved to Boulder. He wasn't a fan of either team, just wanted to see a game. However, he made the mistake of wearing red. I met him at a Fox and Hound in Colo Spgs and he said that all game he was pelted with coins, batteries, cups and boxes. Finally someone threw a cell phone at him, a pretty expensive one. This guy is not real tall but very, VERY big. He said he turned around and yelled in the direction that the phone came from "this is mine now, unless you want to try and take it from me." He still has the phone. Like I said, he did not care one way or another about either team before going to that game, but now his favorite team is the University of Washington, his second favorite team is NU, and his third favorite team is whoever is playing CU.
Regardless of the moaning that we're bound to hear, I'm excited that we're playing Colorado again. And I'm not a panhandler - I'm a native Omahan.
Colorado has given us many great games and fun memories over the years. Anyone still bitter about that 61-point beat down? I sure am. Alex Henery's 57 yard FG and the follow up pick-6 by Suh? Yup, Colorado.
Move it to Sports Authority Field. We can probably get more Husker fans in than watched the CU/CSU game last year.
Dream on. University administration knows how much Buff fans in Boulder dislike going down to that West Denver cement island. There is a reason Buff fans who live in Boulder under-represent at the CU-CSU games in that ashtray of a location.
