1. I wish I had more time but wanted to say something on this board before it was totally irrelevant.
2. I had a good time in T-Town, but wished I had stayed longer--got in Friday night and left Sunday. I was stuck with a bunch of dead weight work people who I couldn't ditch, otherwise it would have been much better. Everyone I spoke with associated with CSU had a great team and were all treated well.
There is a big debate in Fort Collins about whether to build an on campus stadium (current stadium is about 4 miles away) and proponents want to emulate what's done in the SEC. Seeing it in person was very impressive to those unfamiliar with the SEC and I'm sure will be used to further the debate.
3. Regarding the game, I was glad to see CSU hold their own for the most part, and even thought I heard a few boos along the way. Obviously y'all are in a different league and this game was sandwiched between two big conference games, but I'm glad it was respectable.
4. I have a complicated background with a BS from CSU and an MS from LSU. I'm an LSU fan but not a born and bred Louisianan. It's a hell of a difference in the SEC how teams are treated in and out of conference and that's why the SEC rules--well one of the reasons. Never experienced it first hand before.
Thanks again for the hospitality. I assure you it was well received and a great deal of positive stories are being told this week by those who attended. I wish I could have cracked a few cold ones with those on this board but it was not an entirely social trip. Such is life.
