Utah 42, Colorado 35

//posted 11.25.2012

Colorado completed its worst season in school history, and first season ever in Folsom without a victory, in a 42-35 season-ending loss to Utah.

With the loss, the Buffs fell to 1-11 for the 2012 season, the first 11-loss season in 123 years of college football at the University of Colorado. The Buffs finished 0-6 in games played in Boulder, the first winless season at home since 1920, and the first season with nothing but losses at home since the Buffs posted 0-2 home record in 1891.

A 23-point underdog, the Buffs stayed close to the Utes throughout, even taking the lead for much of the third quarter, before falling to a 22-point Utah fourth-quarter comeback. Colorado out-gained Utah on the afternoon, 418 yards to 336, and had more first downs that did the Utes (25-to-18). Five turnovers, though, including four interceptions thrown by starter Nick Hirschman, condemned the Buffs to an off-season of national ridicule.

Record-Keeping

//posted 11.24.2012

No one wants to be in the record books for the wrong reasons.

Quick question: Anyone know anything about Cumberland University, other than the fact that the Cumberland Bulldogs were on the wrong end of a 222-0 loss to Georgia Tech in 1916?

Remember when Northwestern’s most noteworthy football “achievement” was its 34-game losing streak between 1979-82? Do you remember the Columbia Lions for anything other than their 44-game losing streak?

I have to admit, all I know about Prairie View A&M, other than it was the school of my all-time favorite NFL player, Otis Taylor, is that the Panthers endured an 80-game losing streak in the 1990’s.

Still, records are records, and are there to be, well, recorded.

Pac-12 Notes – November

November 30th Larry Scott: Pac-12 staying at 12 Larry Scott, on hand in Palo Alto for the Pac-12 championship game between UCLA and Stanford, gave his “State of the Conference” report Friday. While there will be other quotes of note later tonight, the first one which caught my eye, in terms of quoting, had to do with conference expansion.
