Clearly that should be the sole goal of the program. Bowl eligibility most years. Full stop.

As a fan, I want CU to 1) win a bowl game, 2) against a Power 5 conference team. Hasn't happened since 1999.

The Holy War last night was a classic! What a comeback! Go Utes! Props to BYU for coming out swinging.

Also, sorry Buffs

What a great two weeks. Utes make it 9-in-a-row and CU has a great comeback win over Nebraska. I was at the latter game and it was awesome!

Utes 9 in a row = bad. CU over Nebraska = awesome

Big games for both CU and the Utes this weekend. Can the Buffs bounce-back and beat a suspect ASU team or languish like they have since the miraculous 2016 season. Is Utah a legit top 10 team and beat USC at the Coliseum? I hope they both get W’s this weekend!

Great week for the state of Utah. BYU beats #14 Boise, #13 Utah crushes #17 ASU, USU beats Nevada, and Weber State's Josh Davis runs for 328 yards and 4 TDs in their victory over NAU.

Weber has really been on the rise over the past few years. It's baffling how bad the turnout at their games continues to be.

I can't anymore. Wake me up if a season ever comes when Colorado wins two games in October.

If Utah and Oregon both win next week, a battle of 11-1 teams in the conference championship is a real possibility. In that scenario, the winner could potentially go to the CFP and the loser to the Rose Bowl.

At least CU finally has a coach, a conclusion I came to after watching CU beat Univ of Washington last night.

Colorado stuns Washington in home finale, 20-14
By Jeff Hauser - The Ralphie Report
Quote:
Colorado (5-6, 3-5 Pac-12) moves on to face 7th-ranked Utah in the “Rumble in the Rockies” season finale next week. A win would be historic for the Buffaloes, who snapped a five-game losing streak three weeks ago and it would make CU bowl eligible for the first time since 2016.
Unfortunately the game is at the Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City.

The Buffs have a good coach and I think they'll be better in the coming years, but I think Utah wins big next weekend.

Speak for yourself. Go Utes!

P.S. Pretty impressed CU beat Washinton last week. The game this Saturday may be a good one.

Two wins in November is worth turning over in bed to see what the score is next weekend after the Utah game, but not worth waking up to watch.

It's been 15 years of potential and almost. Not interested in more of that.

Hell no. I'm rooting for a 70-7 blowout of CU. That small dash of hope needs to be crushed in the most ruthless fashion possible.


If the Utes could roast a buffalo on a spit on the sideline that would be nice as well.

I realize Sam Cooke was well before your time but it's true: It's been a long time coming.

If you want to get into the weeds there's always future prospects.

I see where CU is given less than a 5% chance of winning today. The Utes are only favored by 28.5 points. Go Buffs.

Vegas was right. Utes won by 30.

I assume that's why they make the Big Money.

I enjoyed watching the 1st half but then switched to watching the Colorado Avalanche hockey game so it worked well.
