Colorado_mediumHawkins' Buffs thrive on accountability : Boulder Daily Camera
So far, so good. Coach Hawk's "accountability groups" seem to be working...

A little less than a month remains in what has already been a long offseason for the Colorado football team. There is still time for mistakes to happen, but so far the Buffs have managed to stay off the front page this year.

Colorado_mediumMy favorite Big 12 stadiums -- at least for 2009 - ESPN
Tim Griffin ranks the Big 12 football stadiums. CU comes in number 3 but the question I have is this: Do the Nebraska fans give us a standing ovation as we leave the field?

2. Memorial Stadium, Nebraska: Walking into the stadium for a big game still gives me goose bumps. They did a nice job of renovating the press box into one of the very best in college football. And it still gets me when I'm down on the field after a game and see Nebraska fans providing a standing ovation for the visiting team as they leave the field. You don't see that very often.

3. Folsom Field, Colorado: Maybe it's because the mountainous scenery is so different here than any other Big 12 stadium. But coming to Boulder has always been an event for me. I love the walk around the stadium on a crisp autumn afternoon. It's just a special place to watch a game.

Colorado_mediumUA to begin its own sports TV network |
I can't believe that this story isn't getting more play today, but the University of Arizona has become the first school to start their own television station.

Unable to reach a television agreement with their previous cable-satellite network, the Arizona Wildcats are creating one of their own. The UA unveiled the Arizona Wildcats Sports Network on Monday, giving a new home to football and men's basketball games that had been aired on Fox Sports Arizona for more than 10 years.

Athletic Directors across the country will be watching this little experiment very closely. The one question I have, as a big Arizona fan, is how on earth do I get this station?

Colorado_mediumCritics Speak Up About Campus Construction At CU -
Non athletics but still pertinent to most of you. I'm not going to go on a rant here, but someone please tell the "former" members of the Board of Regents that if the University isn't continuing to improve it's campus facilities then there won't be students to pay those tuition bills.
