Go Buffs!

Volume XIV, Issue II

File this one under, "Disgraceful"

Game:                        Colorado vs. Sacramento State
Kick-off:                    12:00 Noon PST
Record:                      0-1 (0-0 Pac-12)
Current Ranking:        Not Ranked

In a word: disgusting. I am disgusted.

Memories of the Dan Hawkins era are swirling as the Buffs failed and folded against weak CSU. Which only means Colorado itself is very weak. I fear another long and trying season. It is hard to be disappointed so soon but C'MON! This Return to Dominance (RTD) campaign has been in place since 1999. And we're still . . . w a i t i n g . . . . .

CU opened up strong with a 14-3 lead in the first half but then became outscored 19-3 for the rest of the game. (Can you believe that? I cannot). The Rams rallied late with two fourth quarter field goals for a 22-17 win in a game that featured four lead changes. But the wrong outcome. 

Colorado now needs to rebound from its opening day setback. You would think playing Sacramento State at home would be a gimmie. But then that's what we thought with Dan Hawkin's first game as head coach at CU against Montana State.

Sacramento State lost is opener on August 30 at New Mexico State, but gave the Aggies fits into the fourth quarter in a 49-19 loss. NMSU scored 21 points in the final stanza (including a late score with 23 seconds left). The Hornets did however have 397 yards on offense with 308 of those yards through the air. (YIKES!)

Enough is enough. Let's get it on.

The Colorado Buffaloes have their home opener this Saturday, hosting the Sacramento State Hornets (0-1, 0-0 Big Sky).  Kick-off is at high noon Pacific Time.

The game will be televised regionally by the Pac-12 Mountain Network. Additionally, the game will also be televised on the brand new, spanking Pac-12 Network. The Pac-12 Network has only been in operation for three weeks and Saturday’s game will mark CU’s debut. Do you get the Pac-12 Network? No? Well, GO GET IT!  Any sports bar who exclusively uses satellite as their provider will not be able to access any of the Pac-12 Networks programming since the satellite companies have still not agreed to broadcast the new Networks. 

If you can't get it all are welcome at my house to watch the game!  :-)

Please Lord, no more of these shenanigans. Let's get a win so we can hold our head up high for a week and have some hope heading into Fresno next week.

  1. No hating...yet. I haven't mentioned a single word about last week's game, but I do echo your sentiments at the beginning of this week's post.
