Colorado-Missouri: "T.I.P.S." for Saturday's Buffaloes-Tigers Game

Stuart WhitehairAnalyst IOctober 22, 2008

Greetings, Buff fans, from!
Missouri week. Colorado on the road against No. 16 Missouri. What you will find on the site this week:
This week's "T.I.P.S.":
T - Talent.

Daniel, Maclin, and Coffman. Perhaps you've heard of ‘em? I understand they’re good.

I - Intangibles.

It’s been two years since Missouri has lost back-to-back games. How will the loss of their top ranking affect the Tigers?

P - Preparation/Schedule.

October was supposed to be a month to remember for Tiger fans. Unfortunately, it will be.

S - Stats.

Hey, the Buffs are leading the Big 12 in one category (and it’s a real one!).

Missouri Trivia
The Tigers held the No. 1 spot for a week last season. Prior to that, Missouri was ranked No. 1 in....?; What did Don Faurot, he of Missouri’s Faurot Field, give to the game of football besides the name of a stadium?

This Day in History: Oct. 25
If you have not learned to set aside time each week for this section, you’ll regret not having done so this week. In addition to the usual "This Day in History" fare, The "Pony Express" makes its debut at SMU (1980); No. 6 Penn State takes on No. 2 Alabama (1986); and there are THREE—count 'em—THREE CU games played on this date which bring back fond memories:
Colorado over No. 5 Missouri (1969)—good Karma here!

Colorado over Texas (1997)—Buffs get "relentlessly positive"; and of course...
Colorado over No. 3 Nebraska (1986)THE game for CU Buff fans. If the mere mention of 20-10 does not bring shivers down your spine, you are either a very young Buff fan or an imposter!

Archived Game of the Week
CU at MU. What game to choose from the archives?

How's about the most infamous CU game of the past twenty years! 

The "Fifth Down Game"—CU vs. Missouri (1990).

There is so much to digest, and so little time before the 4:30 Saturday kickoff. Enjoy!—GO!
Go Buffs!
