Welcome, Buff fans, the 2012 Edition of the Buff Newsletter!

I am fired up. College football is here! It officially kicked of Thursday with 15 games. (Texas A&M vs Louisiana Tech was postponed due to Hurricane Issac. Also, let be known that Sacramento State, CU's second opponent of the season, has already lost). And there are 5 games on Friday night.

But the best games are on Saturday. And the annual Rocky Mountain Showdown.

What to make of this year's Buffs? It is hard to say. There are too many unknowns and unanswered questions. We'll have to wait and see what type of team materializes on the field under Jon Embree's second year. What we do know is this:

  • Jordan Webb, transfer from Kansas, is the starting QB. His effectiveness remains to be seen.
  • Tony Jones is the starting running back - this is good
  • Doug Rippy is back - good
  • Paul Richardson is out for the season - bad
  • You just don't lose to Colorado State

Time to put up or shut up.

Let's get to it:

The Colorado Buffaloes take on the Colorado State Rams in Denver at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Kick-off is at 1:00 PM Pacific. The game is nationally televised on FX Networks. This is the 18th straight year CU-CSU is televised on a national basis.

This CU’s 123rd season of intercollegiate football. Colorado leads the all-time series with Colorado State with a record of 61-20-2.  CU leads the series in Denver by a 7-4 margin
(four straight wins), with all the games since 1998 played at Mile High.

Note that during the all-time series CU has outscored CSU by 1,994-957. As such Colorado is just six points shy of reaching 2,000 points and when that happens it will mark the first opponent CU will reach that plateau against. 

Colorado enters 2012 with an all-time record of 674-452-36, which is 21st on the all-time win list and is 27th in all-time winning percentage (.596).  Only 12 Division I schools have played more seasons of  intercollegiate football than Colorado

Everyone have a great Labor Day Weekend!
