A Long Time Between Sips of Water

This week - for the first time since the 2005 season, the University of Colorado Buffaloes football team is "nationally ranked".   The Buffs are ranked #21 in the Associated Press Poll and #23 in the Coaches Poll.  What does that mean after the first college football Saturday in October?  Admittedly, not a whole helluva lot.  It would, perhaps, if the season ended on October's second football Saturday. 

Alas, it does not.  

This Saturday, Coach Mac and his Buffs shall travel to Los Angeles to take on the USC Trojans. In their history, CU has played USC ten times.  When the Buffs spring the upset (ranking be damned we are road dogs), it will be our first-ever win against SC.  

I do not pretend to know what the rest of the season holds in store for my Alma mater.  Through five weeks, the Buffs have four wins.  College football sets "bowl eligibility" at six victories.  The first opportunity to get to five wins happens on Saturday.  

Stay thirsty, my Buffaloes.  Stay thirsty...
