Mile High Who Cares?

When I attack, there ain't an army that could strike back
So I react never calmly on a hype track…

We’re a handful of days away from the Rocky Mountain Showdown and the talk about the game is at its usual peak. Although, it is not about CU’s cornerback play, Cody Hawkins’ leadership, or the Lambs’ new staff, but rather the actual game. As in the future of the game.

Will the game continue, and if so, where should it be played? My fellow Buff backers echo the thought of the AD, that they want the game at Folsom Field. That’s if they want it at all; many claim this game does nothing for the Buffs. Beat the Sheep and “you’re supposed to”, lose to them and “how could you!?”

College football has become a game of business and crafty scheduling, with 7-8 home games the norm, and CU AD Mike Bohn looks to keep with his BCS brethren and schedule likewise. Plus, most Buff ticket holders like the better seats they have at Folsom rather than sitting on Bucky the Bronco’s bozack at Invesco. Of course the clichéd “Boulder merchants” always come into play in favor of playing in Boulder. And no, away fans, “Boulder merchants” doesn’t mean some dude with dreads selling incense and water pipes.

The other side wishes to continue the series, every year at Invesco. The equally clichéd “good for college football” in the state argument comes into play. Good for college football playing in an antiseptic NFL stadium, adorned with Bronco logos, no neighborhood with all the fans and students riding cars/buses to the game? That’s great for college football. That should challenge the Red River Shootout in popularity there.

I fall into a subset of the former group. Yes, I’d like this game at Folsom, and when the Goats host, they can have it at Invesco or their home field of the Stutler Bowl or whatever it’s called. But, frankly, I don’t give a Boulder hackey sack or a Fort Collins’ tractor where the hell this game is played. A vacant lot littered with hypodermic needles, the ruins of the Astrodome, on Gary Barnett’s mound of dollars, on the USS Nimitz, in the Coors Brewery retaining pond, in my backyard. Play it anywhere, and the Buffs just win the damn game and if you’re a true Buff fan you and your smuggled booze will be there.
