To my fellow Buff fans: Log on to youtube and search "Flatirons Cadence" It is a great video. They perform it going into and exiting the stadium. Any of you going to be at the CU-Wyoming game in September? I'm making the trip from Albuquerque and would love to say hi.

Being in the stadium for the upsets of Penn State (1970 - ending PSU's 31 game unbeaten streak) and Oklahoma (1972), the CU-Nebraska game at Boulder when Chris Brown scored 6 touchdowns; the 2007 shootout against Nebraska (65-51); beating Notre Dame in the Orange Bowl with Charles Johnson (backup QB), the 1-2-3 finish of OU, NU and CU in the national polls in the early-mid 70s (winning AT #9 LSU and #6 Ohio State that year), the 2001 upset of Texas in the Big XII championship game (when Texas had Chris Simms); the 500th win; Eric Bienemy scoring 4 TDs in the 4th quarter at Nebraska to win 27-12; the Michigan hail mary to win with 100 thousand yelling "over rated"...the quiet was deafening afterward;

They're my home team.
