Colorado-Kansas Football: Get Up Early, First Five Minutes Could Decide Winner

Stuart WhitehairAnalyst IOctober 8, 2008

Greetings, Buff fans, from

Is this the week that the Buffs return to the win column? In reviewing this week’s "T.I.P.S.," we’ll take a look at:



Did Matt Ballenger’s touchdown drive against Texas create a quarterback controversy?



The Buff players felt that they gave away the game against last season. Will the memory of the 19-14 loss help or hinder the Buffs this Saturday?



Colorado has played a tough first half schedule. For KU, there are four top ten teams in the last six games. Are the Buffs the Jayhawks’ last ‘gimme’?



Good stuff. How is it possible that you could very well watch the first five minutes Saturday morning and then leave the television, knowing how the game will turn out?


Kansas trivia

Don’t be the last to know the origins of "Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk." For that matter, what is a "Jayhawk," anyway? Do you remember the last time the Jayhawks won a conference title in football?


Archive games

Here are some good names for you: Mississippi’s Archie Manning ('69); Notre Dame’s Joe Montana ('75); Pittsburgh’s Dan Marino ('75). The CU archive games? Buffs vs. Kansas—an overtime thriller in 2003, and the 1992 CU-KU game—the last time the Buffs faced a ranked team in Lawrence.
