Ouch.

Or, oof!, if you prefer.

… Wins have been harder to come by of late in Boulder and it seems fans are storming the field with much more regularity these days — cheapening the act and making it almost a cliché for which the program is becoming known. Colorado’s victory over a 1-4 Georgia program last weekend is the latest example. Have Buffs fans no standards anymore?

By the way, they did it again.

CU linebacker B.J. Beatty was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week for his part in the game-winning play against Georgia. Beatty stripped running back Caleb King of the football after the Bulldogs had driven into field goal position with less than 2 minutes remaining.

That’s three opponents’ conference Player of the Week awards in five games.  I wonder if any other school is close to that pace this season.

    I think what they mean is he knocked the ball loose as CK was turning to pitch it back to AM for the flea flicker.;)

    Like Georgia Tech, this the only good news Colorado has had since 1990.

    Think I’ll go ask A.J. how much could I make if I sold my collar to a Colorado fan on eBay right now.

    Remember when the idiots in Sanford stormed the field 10 years ago this week, to celebrate a win over a pathetic Tennessee team. Not sure that much has changed regarding storming the field. All it takes is a couple of idiots to get it started.

    By the way, all those wondering when UGA may pull out of this “down cycle,” Tennessee has been in one since 2000.

    And now, they are on their 3rd coach.

    They had the blip on the radar that was 2001, but they pissed away the SECCG that year to arguably the least worthy SECCG representative ever, and they became the least worthy SECCG representative ever in 2007 by stealing our seat in the Georgia Dome with last second, lucky victories over Vandy and UK.

    Other than that, they have sucked, save the occasional, inconcievable beatdown of Mark Richt’s squad.

    Sorry, Original, logic has no standing in the discussion of replacing coaches.

      And, in the “Fickle Finger of Fate” department, this nugget from this week’s “Next Herschel Walker”

      “Well, they’re losing a lot of games and have a lot of people getting arrested,” Crowell said of Georgia. “There’s just a lot of things going wrong. I do want to play right away but I also want to be where it’s disciplined and they win championships.” (AJC)

      Where’s the hugs now.

    That, and the Fulmer Cup victory proves you can acquire accolades in any context. We’re #1 in a couple of things. 😦
