Re: “AFA's springboard to 2010?

As a BYU fan I must say I lave watching the Falcons play. I love your NEVER QUIT attitude. Good luck on Saturday and God bless for what you do for our country. You guys are the ONLY other MWC team that I really cheer for. I wish you could have beaten those godless Utes.

Go Falcons and make it a good one Saturday. (but not too close)

Re: “Tigers raising their profile

You are an idiot for suggesting the Red Sox would trade one of the best five closers in baseball for Garrett Atkins, who hit a staggering .225 with 9 homers this year.

Re: “Bodor finds home in Hawaii

I agree with the first comment. As a former player of Coach Bodor I felt that he was very very disrespectful and he had no clue on how to run a football program. I know that most of the CC football team felt this way as well.

Re: “Bodor finds home in Hawaii

Bob Bodor ran that program into the ground. He couldn't coach any where here in the states cause everyone dislikes him. He got what he deserved.

Re: “Broncos' mystery will end at 8-8

I made my sweeping judgement when a 32 year old rookie coach p-o'd the number one quarterback in the league. 8-8 would be heaven. How 'bout 2-14?

Re: “Broncos' mystery will end at 8-8

Seriously? Are we looking at the same team? New Coach, Quarterback, Offensive and Defensive scheme's - I am a Bronco fan but even I can smell 6-10 in the water.

Re: “End Zone: New life on Pikes Peak

Its getting paved you idiot, lol, this race is more like the best race on the planet,. :) I dont know how it can generate dust if its almost 75% paved, this race deserves more credit than it gets. Maybe you should just try coming to the race sometime and see what I mean. No one is going to listen to you. The race made more of a profit this year than they have ever made, and it is a huge money maker for buisnesses and hotels around the area. There I am done.

Re: “End Zone: New life on Pikes Peak

Dumbest Race on the Planet. Hands Down. My City does not have the money to fund basic Park and Recreation services for citizens of this city, but we can fund a dangerous race that serves only the pleasure of many out of town drivers who don't even pay taxes here. Routon ought to go interview the caretakers on Pikes Peak. They told representatives of the North Slope Committee 25 years ago that the Pikes Peak Hill Climb generates more dust pollution all over the forests up there than any other day of the year. That's right. The NUMBER ONE pollution event each year.

Re: “End Zone: Guessing about Broncos' draft

The NFL draft is the greatest. As a Bronco fan this draft and its picks will determine whether or not Josh McTrainwreck has any hope of winning back disappointed fans. The Cutler situation was pathetic. Hopefully this won't be another deer in the headlights moment for the boy coach.

Re: “End Zone: Trying to save a piece of CC's history

I doubt the SCAC opponents who CC's administration left in the lurch would be interested in playing a meaningless non-conf game here. And the student-athletes, sad to say, are frantically trying to transfer to some place that gives a d**n. The CC administration purposefully waited to make the announcement so that the program's disintegration would be a fait d'accompli.

Re: “End Zone: Trying to save a piece of CC's history

Football is one of those sports that seems to be either loved or hated by students, alums and fans.It is easy to see it as another example of violence in violent times.

What it gives to young men is hard to measure but the life's lessons taught through the team concept not only last throughout a lifetime but help shape the lives of its players.

I attended CSU-Pueblo to pay football after my original school cancelled its program. That school's image has drastically changed both nationally and regionally. CSU-Pueblo actually dropped its program only to revive it to increase enrollment. (up 60% for first year students and 11% for the entire student body). Did CC communicate with CSU-Pueblo before they gave the death sentence to a vital and, apparently, unappreciated program?

Re: “End Zone: Trying to save a piece of CC's history

I didn't even know they had a football team. Guess that says something about the "marketing". God knows we hear enough about the Hockey

Re: “Broncos: a real soap opera

Hi I do not know a thing about soap operas. But, I do know that all a person needs to do is ADD UP all the offensive points Cutler has put up. Nothing was wrong with the offensive line and certainly not Jay Cutler. WHY try to fix something that is not BROKEN !!! Fix the DEFENSE... josh mcdanials is a fool to not focus on fixing the defense. You are right the owner needs to take control.
Thanks for allowing me to get that off my chest.

Re: “Crowder: Gone, not forgotten

Ralph, My memory of the events after the final game of the 1977 season are very different than yours. I personally went to the locker room doors and told the press that the team unanimously decided not to let them in. If you were in the locker room and intimidated by Leon White it may have been because you were not supposed to be in there. On the matter of no bowl game in 1977, it was because Athletic Director Crowder would not accept a bowl game offer because of some personal issue of his. To this day I can't forgive Crowder for spoiling my opportunity to go to a bowl game. On Crowder's comment that Mallory was somehow over-rated, please note that Mallory's teams won 62% of the time which is the same as McCartney. I am of the opinion that Crowder fired Mallory so he could bring in his crony Chuck Fairbanks.

Re: “For Broncos, all roads lead to finale

Nice article, but I take issue with one of your comments under the won't reach 10-5 section. You write that with Prater we no longer have a shot at a 57 yard field goal to save a game, that we can only count on short field goals. You have it exactly backwards. Elam is automatic from 40 yards in but can longer hit really long field goals or reach the end zone on kickoffs. Prater can do both but hasn't yet established himself as being reliable from 40 yards or shorter.

Re: “For Broncos, all roads lead to finale

I totally agree with this analysis of the Broncos. Their defense looks suspect to say the least. Offense might be okay but special teams will kill them once again.

Re: “It's not just about gold medals

Everyone else in the world ranks by Gold medals, including the IOC offical medal count. The problem with ranking by total medals is precisely that it devalues gold. Someone said it best that it is ludicrous that under a total medal count - a country with 100 bronze medals would be ranked higher than a country with 99 gold medals. Although fractions of a second may not seem like much to you, at a world class performance level the difference between gold and anything less is striking. Those media who made a big deal about the USA losing the gold medal race to China are correct. It is no "crock". The era of American sport dominance is ended and the Chinese have set the new athletic standard. That, is how the rest of the world will see it.

Re: “Olympics: Almost perfect, but not quite

What happened to Casey Burgener is unconscionable! How can they keep changing the requirements? Now, he will probably leave the sport and US will lose one of it's best Olympic Lifters.
