Pac-12 Notes – May, 2011

//posted 5.31.2011

May 31st Time for a little love If you have already grown weary of what the preseason magazines have had to say about Colorado (see, Colorado Daily, May 29th), then this might raise your spirits … In his ESPN blog, Ted Miller wrote an article entitled, “Colorado’s visit to OSU no longer imposing“.  In it, Miller notes that Ohio State was already going to be without several key players for the game against Colorado on September 24th, including quarterback Terrelle Pryor, leading rusher Daniel Herron, No. 2 wide receiver DeVier Posey, …

The Buffs raced to a 21-0 first quarter lead, never looking back, sending the Homecoming crowd of 50,686 into the cool fall Boulder evening with much to be excited about. While the final score and statistics painted a picture of complete dominance by the Buffs, the issue was still very much in question … in the first minute of play. …

— Preseason – 2000 — Looking forward to the 2000 Colorado football season, the proverbial glass could be seen as either being half empty or half full. On the positive side, the Buffs had played inspired football the second half of the 1999 season, a 7-5 campaign. Colorado endured close losses to two top ten teams, Kansas State and Nebraska, before mauling Boston College in the Insight.com Bowl. Head coach Gary Barnett spoke of how the players had “bought into” the system the second half of his first season, and …

— September 12th – at Baylor          No. 12 Colorado 57, Baylor 38 — Heading off to Waco for the second game of the 1992 season, there was no chance Colorado was going to take the Baylor Bears lightly. Baylor had defeated the Buffs 16-14 at Folsom Field in 1991, led by quarterback J.J. Joe’s 301 yards of total offense. Traveling to Waco for only the third time in school history, Colorado exacted a measure of revenge for the 1991 upset in routing the Bears, 57-38.  Kordell …

  — September 24th – Boulder           Colorado 28, Oregon State 21 — Colorado took the lead against Oregon State just over three minutes into the game, and trailed for only 2:46 of the entire contest. Still, the Buffs struggled to contain and repel a competitive Oregon State squad, hanging on to defeat the Beavers, 28-21. Eric Bieniemy rushed for 211 yards and three touchdowns on the afternoon. His first score came on a 45-yard run on a fourth-and-one, putting the Buffs up 7-0 with 11:54 to play in the first quarter. Bieniemy scored …

  — September 26th – Boulder           Colorado 26, Washington State 17 — Another day, another game, another new Buff making an impression. This time it was sophomore quarterback Sal Aunese, subbing for injured starter Mark Hatcher, who made a splash. Aunese did not start, but played a significant role in leading Colorado to a 26-17 win over Washington State. Aunese carried the ball 22 times for 185 yards and one touchdown. Aunese also completed one of his three passes, a 30-yarder to Eric Bieniemy. Washington State, led by first-year coach …

  — September 28th – at Arizona           Colorado 14, Arizona 13 — A major test for the rejuvenated Buffs would come against Arizona. The game against the Wildcats would be the first road game of the year, and the first night game for Colorado since 1980 (v. LSU). After starting the season 2-1 in 1983, the Buffs succumbed to Notre Dame, and then slid into a five game losing streak. If the 1985 Colorado squad, also possessing a 2-1 record, was to make a statement that black was in fact …

— September 27th – Boulder           Indiana 49, Colorado 7 — Fresh off the near comeback at Baton Rouge, there was at least some cause for hope against visiting Indiana.  After all, the Buffs had beaten the Hoosiers the previous year in Bloomington, 17-16.  In the 1979 game, Colorado had given Chuck Fairbanks his first win as the Buffs’ head coach.  On that day, an 0-3 CU squad had beaten a 3-0 Indiana team, and had done so on the road.  With that backdrop of cautious optimism, a crowd of 40,219 …
