    I thought this during last weeks game, but I wanted to see a little more of Shelley before making a comment. I think Shelley is a more natural QB than Huntley. I base this mostly on his presence in the pocket. He stands there and does not get antsy feet.

    The coaches have always said Shelley throws a better deep ball.

    I love the way our offense wears down the opposing team. We are consistently better in the second half than in the first.

    I didn’t realize that on the punt were we were called for interfering with the kick/catch, there were snowballs thrown at the players that nvolved. ESPN showed them in zoomed slo-mo, and then and obsessed over them.
    I saw a door that said exit only. So I entered through it and went up to the guy working there and said "I have good news. You have severely underestimated that door over there. By like a hundred percent." Demetri Marti

    Before the game they reported this was only the 8th snow game at Folsom Field since the 1940s. Whether that is true or not I don't care*, but throwing snowballs during a Utah snow game was a deeply-held religious tradition dating back as far as I can remember.

    And that certainly was better than the piss bombs thrown by Wyoming fans in Laramie, though those tended to be aimed at opposing fans more than at the players.

    ( *It seems odd because there have been a number of snow games for the Broncos. I recall a game in the 80s where a potential game-winning field goal was affected when the holder got smacked with a snowball and couldn't place the ball. Maybe Jeremy Bloom doesn't know anything about snow or CU football? -- j/k JB is one of my all-time favorite non-Ute athletes, both for football and for skiing)

    This actually makes me feel a little better about destroying them.

    UC Boulder's toolkit included a ready-made letter people could send to schools with "harmful" or "offensive" Native American-themed mascots.

    We can tell Colorado to cheer like crazy for the Utah Utes this week, since Brigham Young was the Ute tribes' Columbus.

    They might understand that nuance.

    I have to think the CU admin would see it as well.
