Oklahoma 43, Colorado 10

Colorado’s last visit to storied Owen Field as a member of the Big 12 did not end (or begin, for that matter) well.

In the long, successful history of its football program, Oklahoma had never before had a 34-game home winning streak, but had just such a streak heading into the game against the Buffs. In the long, relatively successful history of its football program, Colorado had never before had a 14-game road losing streak, but had just such a streak heading into the game against the Sooners.

Result? Predictable.

Oklahoma 43; Colorado 10.

Quarterback Landry Jones threw for a career-high 453 yards and four touchdowns, while wide receiver Ryan Broyles set a school record with 208 yards receiving in the rout of Colorado.


No reason to be Nervous

It was Saturday night. The team was on the road, playing before a national television audience. The team had actually had recent success against its opponent, but the historical record was on the side of the home team.

It was a big game for both teams, but for different reasons. One had national title aspirations; the other was looking for respect.

The fan was pensive, concerned. In a word: nervous.

Texas Tech 27, Colorado 24

//posted 10.23.2010

Colorado watched a ten-point fourth quarter lead, and any realistic hope for a bowl bid, slip away in the fourth quarter in a three-point loss at home to Texas Tech. The Red Raiders out-scored the Buffs 13-0 in the final quarter, handing the Buffs a 27-24 setback. The loss dropped Colorado to 3-4 overall, 0-3 in Big 12 play, as 47,665 on hand for Homecoming went home knowing that Colorado may well have to wait yet another year for a chance at a winning record and bowl appearance.


Where is Dandy Don Meredith when you need him?

For those of us old enough to remember, the ABC Monday Night Football football crew once consisted of Frank Gifford, Howard Cossell, and Don Meredith. In the 1970’s, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback was the light-hearted counter-balance to the irascible Cosell, and millions looked forward to Monday nights when the two would do battle with one another on the air.

One of Dandy Don’s signatures came when the Monday night NFL offering game was safely out of hand. Meredith, a southern crooner who went to school at SMU, would belt out a farewell to the losing team , “Turn out  the lights, the party’s over. They say that all good things must end …”.

Well, it’s turn out the lights time for the University of Colorado football team under Dan Hawkins.

Enough will finally be enough.
