The Disastrous Football Weekend – That Could Have Been Worse

September 26th, 2023

To call the weekend football games disappointing would be an understatement. To call them disheartening wouldn’t quite be enough. To call them a disaster – now we are getting close. The Colorado Buffaloes and Deion’s boys faced off against tenth-ranked Oregon in Eugene. The Buffs showed up with their usual swagger – dancing on the opposing team’s logo and talking trash. But in the end, it would be Oregon dancing in the endzone, and letting their performance do the talking for them. Oregon coach Dan Lanning screamed in his opening speech to the team – “They’re fighting for clicks.... Read More

How Coach Prime is Inspiring Boulder’s Youth

September 26th, 2023

As a parent of a first-year student at CU, I have experienced both the joy and the pain of sending my child into the world. (Please refer to the last article, Sending Your 18 Year Old Into The World). My daughter, Summer, has always been my sunshine, and I was proud of her for choosing to pursue her education at such a prestigious institution. But I was also sad to see her leave our home and our daily lives. I wondered how we would stay connected and how she would cope with the challenges of college life. I admit that I was not a big fan of football before. I had my doubts about the sport and... Read More

CU Football Shatters Records in Highest-Rated Game of the Week

September 12th, 2023

According to Sports Media Watch, averaging  8.76 million viewers on ESPN and ESPN2, Texas’ upset of Alabama was the top draw in week two of the college football season, just beating out Colorado’s victory against Nebraska earlier in the day on FOX (8.73M). In terms of ratings, Colorado-Nebraska took first place (4.8 to 4.5). On the other end of the scale, NBC’s primetime Charlotte-Maryland average was barely 665,000 viewers, making it one of, if not the lowest primetime sports audiences ever for the network. The CW, which averaged 617,000 viewers for its college football debut,... Read More

Breaks, Struts, and a Realignment

August 1st, 2023

The Colorado Buffaloes didn’t expect much as they drove their 2011 Subaru Outback into the repair shop off campus. The Subaru had plenty of wear and tear on it with all those road trips to Corvallis, Palo Alto, and Tucson – but not a lot of memories to go along with it. Once shiny and new car smelling, the black and gold vehicle was now rusty and slow to start, presumably after years of fender benders around Westwood, radiator trouble in Tempe, and a flat tire in Spokane. The break came when the Big 12 saw the broken-down Subaru and somehow thought it would look good on their lot, somewhere... Read More

Denver Broncos – That’s Not What I Asked For

December 27th, 2022

The lights flickered off the Christmas tree like stars in the dark sky. The table was set with fancy holiday dishes, festive wine glasses, and charcuterie filled with various gourmet cheeses and prosciutto. Filled stockings hung off the fireplace, expensive bourbon poured into those with eggnog, while the scent of Grandma’s sugar cookies filled the air. It was the perfect Christmas. The matching family pajamas may have been a little over-the-top, as was the hula-hooping Santa Claus that rotated around on the mantle. But nothing was going to embarrass me on this day. Nothing was going to spoil... Read More
