Why yes, Rodney Stewart IS Superman!
Today's articles look forward...past K-State. We've had lots of great discussion already on who ought to be the next Head Coach, but here's what some others have to say.
The folks who believe Bill McCartney should be the next coach at Colorado would have been pleased with Tuesday's weekly CU football press conference. Mac was there. Well, not really. That was Brian Cabral in the head coach's chair, talking about last weekend's win over Iowa State and Saturday's upcoming game against Kansas State. But anyone who ever listened to a McCartney press conference could have shut his eyes and heard Cabral channeling McCartney.
The search committee has been named to help determine who will become the 24th full-time head football coach in University of Colorado history, school officials released Wednesday. CU’s Faculty Athletics Representative and long-time faculty member, Dr. David Clough, will chair the seven-person committee...
Solving The Colorado Head Coaching Conundrum - A college football blog by people who know and have played the game... Dan Hawkins is out at the University of Colorado and, as it stands now, Colorado is the leader in terms of "best jobs" available...where does this leave Colorado?
Buffs' next hire has to make big dollars—and sense - NCAA Football - Sporting News - News of Dan Hawkins firing trumps anything else coming out of the University of Colorado in recent days. Second on the list is a money matter that should mean just as much to Buffs fans, and could mean even more to the program long term. "We’ve got to find somebody that’s willing to understand that we’re not there yet," Bohn told reporters in Bouler, Colo.

BuffsTV will webcast Saturday's football game against Kansas State (12:10 p.m. kick). CU Athletics is also offering $12 tickets to commemorate the Buffs' final Big 12 game at Folsom Field...

Those who are not subscribers have the option to sign up for the one-time pay per view game event for $9.95.
Big 12 Stock Watch: Week 12 - Big 12 Blog - ESPN - Ubben's sarcasm aside, quite a few non-Colorado people have pointed this trend out to me this season.
Perplexing penalties - I've got no idea what this means, but get a load of this stat:
The Big 12 team who has drawn the most penalties this year: Kansas, with 82. The team whose opponents have been flagged for the fewest: Nebraska, with 46. Colorado's opponents have been flagged 57 times, the next fewest.
Clearly a wide-ranging conspiracy is the only explanation, right?
Kansas State at Colorado (2:10 p.m.): Two of the league's best running backs face off in this one, Colorado's Rodney Stewart and Kansas State's Daniel Thomas... ...a winnable game for the quarterback to keep the Buffaloes alive in the hunt for a bowl game.
With one regular-season game left on their schedule and an overmatched opponent coming to Folsom Field, the Buffs were looking at a recipe ready-made for fun. And, oh, did they enjoy themselves.
By the fourth quarter, with Kansas State trailing by 10 touchdowns - that's ten TDs - coach Bill McCartney inserted defensive stalwarts Alfred Williams and Kanavis McGhee as tight ends. Williams made a leaping grab for the first catch of his college career, McGhee bobbled his lone opportunity.
CU set a number of records, but the most number was '1.' The Buffs entered the game ranked No. 2 behind Notre Dame. But after Penn State shocked the Fighting Irish 24-21, CU would climb to the top spot and enter the Orange Bowl as the nation's top-ranked team for the second consecutive season.
