— 1990 – A Preview — How things looked in August In 1989, Colorado broke the hold the “Big Two” had maintained over the rest of the Big Eight since 1976. In 1990, there would be plenty of competition for the Big Eight Champions from Boulder, both for conference and national honors.

Defending national titleist Miami was the preseason pick by many to finish #1, while 1988 champ Notre …

— Prelude to the 1990 Orange Bowl … Travel Plans — When I was an undergrad at Colorado, a number of my friends and I made a pact: If Colorado ever made it to the Orange Bowl as Big Eight Champions, we would go to the game. No matter when, no matter our circumstances, we would find a way to get there.  At the time, with the Buffs posting a series of records like 1-10, 2-8-1, and 3-8, there seemed to be little substance to the pledge. A few short …

— 1989 Season – “Things Have Changed” — Spring Optimism Optimism. For every college football team, spring is a time for optimism.  No team has sustained a defeat; the opportunity for a successful fall campaign is there for the taking.  Hard work, team unity, and a little luck is seemingly all that is required for success.  Of course, optimism takes different forms depending on the results of previous season. For those teams which competed for the national championship in 1988, the spring of 1989 was a time to find that missing …
