Go Buffs!

Volume XIV, Issue IX

File this one under, "A season to forget"

Game:                        Colorado vs #15 Stanford
Kick-off:                    11:00 AM PST
Record:                      1-7 (1-4 Pac-12)
Current Ranking:        Not Ranked

Oh boy it's bad.

Can you say ugly? Colorado is coming off a 70-14 loss at No. 2 Oregon. The Ducks were as advertised if not better accumulating 617 yards of offense; 447 in the first half while racing to a 56-0 halftime lead matching CU’s largest halftime deficit in its history. (Colorado trailed by the same score at UCLA in 1980).*

Silver lining: You think 56-0 at halftime is bad? At least we're not New Mexico. Oregon hung 59 points against the Lobos back in 2010. So, you know, we've got that going for us.

On with the show.

The Colorado Buffaloes return home for the first of three games in November to close out the 2012 season. The face 15th ranked Stanford (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12) on Saturday. Kickoff is at 11:00 PDT.  The game will be televised on FX Network.

This will be the first time the Cardinals have visited Folsom Field since 1990. Stanford is coming off a 21-3 win over Cal in "The Big Game" last weekend. This after Stanford rallied from a controversial 20-13 overtime loss at Notre Dame on Oct. 13.

This is the third ranked  team CU will face in as many games. Colorado has lost 10 straight (and counting) against ranked teams (last win: 34-30 over Kansas in 2009). 

Colorado Curse
Here is your hot gambling tip of the week: EVERY team during this 2012 season has LOST their next game after having played Colorado. It's called the 'Colorado Curse.' Look it up. CSU, Sac State, Fresno State, Washington State, UCLA, ASU & USC have all lost following their matchup against CU. That means Oregon is going down this weekend. So run out and place your bets on the Trojans. You heard it hear first. 


*The halftime score of the 103-0 loss to Colorado Mines in 1890 is not known.
