Your style is local, I sit on beats in Acupulco
I put words together like Peter Jennings
And skate on motherfuckers like Peggy Fleming...
With less than 48 hours remaining until the glorious dawning known as College Football, Slushy Gutter Summer takes a quick look at the tilt between the hometown Buffs and their Game One opponent, the Montana State Bobcats.
-This will be the first game for new Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins. Hawkins currently holds the Div 1 winning percentage title after his stint as HC of the Boise State Broncos. 'Hawk' isn't quite in awe of his new Big 12 surroundings. "Is it fun going to all these (new) stadiums and all these places? Yeah," Hawkins said. "But it's not like I'm going to Norman to get Bob Stoops' autograph. We're going there trying to win. "- Dan Hawkins

-MSU recently added safety Tyrone Henderson to their roster. Sound familiar? It should, as he started the majority of last year for the Buffs. He was kicked off the team for unspecified reasons earlier in the summer

-Quarterback James Cox, a fifth year Senior will lead the Buffs into action on Satruday. Behind him on the depth chart are Juniors Brian White and Bernard Jackson. I expect to see all three play at some point during the year. At tailback, Hugh Charles should get the bulk of the carries, but he is hearing footsteps on the depth chart from The Welder.
-Colorado is one of nine Division 1A teams to never have played a D1AA opponent. That streak will end on Saturday when the Bobcats come to town. In this economic environment and with the NCAA 12th game, CU AD Mike Bohn was smart in bringing in the 'Cats. Would the fans rather see, say, Stanford or Minnesota? Sure, but the 'Cats fit the bill as a good first opponent.
-With MSU being a D1AA team, there is no line on the game. Various publications have their lines however. The Harmon Forecast has the score Colorado-41, Montana St-3.
-There will plenty of suds consumed before, during, and after the game. The prime spot, as it has been throughout the years is The Harvest House. Everyone come by to revel in the post-528 moments.
