A Pac-12-ACC merger has its flaws, but it remains an option

+

With their upcoming move to the Big Ten, USC and UCLA have received ample amounts of criticism regarding their complete lack of care for the student-athlete experience. Balancing academics and athletics is difficult enough, but throw in a routine of five-plus hour plane trips to the East Coast and you’re more of a traveler than a student. NFL live streams Reddit may be a thing of the past, but cord-cutters will have more ways to watch the NFL free than ever before in 2021.

Colorado football is full of unknowns in Karl Dorrell’s Year 3, but the Buffs have belief

+

The Colorado coaching staff knows what everyone thinks about its chances this season. After a strong first season under head coach Karl Dorrell in 2020, the Buffaloes struggled last year, winning four games. The defense at times played well enough to win — maybe well enough to get to a bowl game — but the offensive issues were a hurdle too high to clear. For the first time since 2016, Colorado had no one selected in the NFL Draft.

Sports Illustrated should rewrite 'Colorado State vs. Colorado in Denver' College Football Road Trip

+

The Aug. 14 issue of Sports Illustrated featured a 2017 college football preseason top 25, along with a suggested road trip to guide fans. One of the stops on the cross-country route was in Denver, Colo for the Rocky Mountain Showdown. Except it didn't give a good description of the match-up, or the Mile High City. Here's a suggested redo with more accuracy. The Buffs are coming off one of the best turnaround season's in college football history. Despite an off-the-field issue with former coach Joe Tumpkin, the Buffs are focused on football going into the 2017 season. The Rocky Mountain Showdown has been played in Denver going back to 1998, but should be moved back to campus for a more enhanced atmosphere. Colorado has won the past two years, including a 44-7 win in 2016, the largest margin of victory for either team in the series going back to 1956. Grab a beer at one of the many craft breweries in downtown Denver- before the game as most close before Midnight. Falling Rock Tap House is an option with a long walk or Lyft after the game, despite normal Friday night LoDo traffic congestion. Get on the road by 9 a.m. Sunday. You're going for a seven-hour run of nothing to Manhattan, Kans, where Bill Snyder is still coaching. Be careful and watch out for deer along interstate 70. There's nothing good about explaining that situation to a rental car company. Less than two weeks until the start of the college football season. #NeverStopRising

The Worst Sports Promotion. Ever.

+

The Colorado Rockies are off to one of the best starts in franchise history with a 41-25 record (second best in MLB). In fact, the success of the new look Blake Street Bombers is the best in Denver sports history. According to Rockies scorekeeper and CU's Dave Plati, " (The Rockies) are 24-10 on the road and the first team in Denver major league history that is 14 games over .500 at any point in a season (Avs were +13 three times, Nuggets +9 in the ABA in '74-75). Best runs are a 24-8 span the Broncos were on the road from 2012-to early 2016, and the old Denver Bears were 17 over in both 1976 and 1980." Wow. All of the hits keep on coming in LoDo, except for this June 17 promotion vs. the San Francisco Giants for Nebraska fans. One of the worst promotions in sports history features a red hat with a Rockies logo, that would only be cool with a "62-36, never forget patch". No Colorado love for the team we supported through the "tough years". Maybe next time Ralphie could run the bases?
