Let’s be honest. This is a huge week for football in Colorado! The NFL preseason has left us needing a little real football in the state.
Typically this is a week filled with CSU fans making outrageous claims and stupid bets. These fans come out of the woodwork. Coworkers who hide in the corners. Estranged friends from the past. Less than articulate radio call ins. All these people who don’t even know that CSU even has a fight song let alone know the words. They talk a big story and after Labor day we don’t have to hear from them again.
Truth is they have plenty to talk about. They just came off a big bowl win and a winnig season with a new head coach. But where are they this year? I haven’t heard a peep from the Rams this year. Are they so disgruntled about the game being in Boulder? With Sperry and Bell gone from the program have they really lost all hope? Do they believe Fairchild and his quarterback laments? Or perhaps they are all secretly believing exactly what Fairchild is saying privately. The next two seasons for the Rams are going to be rough?
No matter it is good for me. I never enjoy having to explain the difference between JV and Varsity to those kids up north.
