Greetings, Buff fans, from CU at the Game!
Okay, so it's been a tough 48 hours. Still, the games go on, and the Buffs—for better or worse—have to quickly put the CSU game behind them.
"We just have to throw it away and keep moving," said Dan Hawkins.
Posted at www.cuatthegame.com is all you'll need to become an expert on Toledo Rockets' football:
"T.I.P.S." for the game—The Buffs have more talent, but the intangibles and the schedule lean towards the Rockets. The stats cut both ways.
Toledo trivia—It's fun when we have an opponent we haven't played before. The origins of the "Rockets" nickname, the "Glass Bowl," as well as the history behind the "Toledo War" are all posted.
This day in history—Sept. 11 has meaning for all of us, but there were also some memorable games played in CU and college football history, including the makeup game for Sept. 11, 2001—CU v. Washington State, Sept. 11, 2004.
A bonus for you—my look back at Sept. 11, 2001: http://www.cuatthegame.com/2001/washington-state-cancelled-remembering-september-11th/
Archive Game of the Week—This is an easy choice. The only other game in the archives between CU and a MAC team was CU v. Miami (Ohio) in 2007 (bonus points if you know the only other game played between CU and a MAC team—hint, check out the T.I.P.S.).
One last thing before you head off to the web site. Today, Dan Hawkins addressed the problems of getting plays in on time on Sunday. According to cubuffs.com, Scotty McKnight's injury and subsequent changes in receiver personnel was to blame for the Buffs' consistent inability to hike the ball before the game clock struck zero.
So much for "no excuses"...
