CU At The Game Heads South to Kyle Field: "T.I.P.S." for the A&M Game

Stuart WhitehairAnalyst IOctober 29, 2008

Greetings, Buff fans, from CU At The Game!

Well, it’s been a long couple of days—feel any better? I’m still trying to shake off the 58-0 loss to Missouri. The ache in my stomach, though, is still there.

I hope the Buffs’ coaches and players have done a better job of shaking off that loss.

For those able to look forward, there is good news. On paper and on the field, Texas A&M is arguably the worst team in the Big 12.


Here are this week’s "T.I.P.S."


Jerrod Johnson is a good quarterback. But he is no Chase Daniel...or Josh Freeman...or Todd Reesing...or Colt McCoy...or...



Can the Buffs shake off the humiliating loss to Missouri? A one-word answer from coach Dan Hawkins earlier this week has me concerned.



Not much to leave to the imagination here. A Buffs win puts the program on track for a bowl. A loss, and the Iowa State game next week is to stay out of last place.



For the second time in three weeks, CU fans can look at the stats sheet and (at least wistfully) smile. "Someone is worse than us!" Yes, much worse.


Of course, there is much more at for your review.

The trivia section is loaded with information about E. King Gill (aka the 12th man), Yell Practice, and more. Do you know why reveille is a collie? C’mon—you’ve got to know this stuff.

I am heading south on Friday so as to give you a first-hand account of Yell Practice and the goings-on at Kyle Field. Since you can’t watch the game on TV, the least you can do is be prepared for my review on Sunday!

Go Buffs!
