"It's a stompin' in Norman folks, an old fashioned stompin'!" - Brent Musberger(TTU - 2008)
I can respect his remarks. I think the key to CU becoming relevant again is by recruiting in CA. If they don't play games in CA, that becomes even more difficult to accomplish. I don't think it has anything to do with fearing us. He knows he has plenty to fear regardless of who he plays.
What's dumb about his comment is that during the last go round the Pac 16 that is about to happen was on the verge of happening then and I didn't here any complaints out of Colorado at that point! In fact they wanted to be included in that scenario so badly they decided to jump early so not to get themselves excluded completely!
Colorado doesn't have a lot of options at this point. Its either go along with it, re join a flailing Big XII or join a league where they might actually have a chance to be competitive like the Mountain West.
I always love the "academics" argument. All these schools fight for the same kids, many with questionable academic standings in high school, yet few ever flunk out when they get to college. Yet most schools have like a 50% dropout rate with non-athletes. But school presidents etc. always want to beat their chest about their great academics. Texas loses that argument for exple because Vince Young stayed eligible for 3 years. Right..... So just another tool crying about how they aren't winning because they have such great academic requirements......Colorado........right. The Harvard of the Rockies. The dope capital of the west. Please remind me, what degree did Darion Hagan get?
Another good point Kboz- agreed with you on another thread. You're batting 1000%. Still think as a fan I'd rather see OU play Texas and the Booners and if it has to include the Beavers and Huskies so be it.
