November the cruelest month for Missouri

Tigers 7-14 under Pinkel in final calendar month of regular season

Judging strictly by past performance, the wheels ought to fall off any time now in Columbia, Mo. In fact, this Saturday sounds just about right.

As of now, times are good for coach Gary Pinkel’s Missouri football team. Of course, it’s still October and people are looking forward to the freaks and ghouls of Halloween and not so much to the treacherous month of November.

The Tigers are ranked among the top 10 teams in the nation (No. 9) for the first time since 1981. They are going to a bowl game for the fourth time in five years and feature one of the most prolific offenses in the nation with a quarterback who could be a front-runner for the 2008 Heisman Trophy.

But their next game will be played in Boulder on Saturday in a venue in which they have struggled in recent years. And another page will be ripped off the calendar by game time, welcoming a month of nightmares for the Tigers.

Forgive them for not forming a welcoming committee.

Since Pinkel took over the program in 2001, Missouri is 7-14 in November, including a memorable late-season collapse last year that took the

Tigers from midseason talk of a Big 12 Conference championship game to settling for the Sun Bowl.

Pinkel seems to have a different demeanor about him this season. His players have grown closer to him as he has let his guard down and become more personable. His team appears to be responding on the field as well.

“From Day One, I’ve been saying, ‘Finish,’” wide receiver Will Franklin said. “This is the last half of the season where if we finish, and we finish the right way, we’ll be in the national title talk. That’s every senior’s dream and every player’s dream, to play in the national title day and to play in the Big 12 game. That’s our goal, to finish these last four games and come out on top.”

Pinkel isn’t dodging questions about his team’s past failings in November. He is embracing them instead. He highlighted improved leadership on this year’s team and said the Tigers are right where they want to be when the topic came up Monday.

“We’ll see. Honestly, it’s kinda where you want to be at this point,” he said. “Quite frankly, it’s not real complex. If you want to win a championship, the teams that win championships win on the road, they win at home, they win where they gotta win. And that’s exactly where we’re at. I can’t say it anymore simple than that. That’s the way it is.”

Pinkel spent a portion of his day talking about how much different CU is this year compared with the team his Tigers defeated last season in Faurot Field. He praised the job coach Dan Hawkins has done in beginning to build his program in Boulder.

Pinkel also credited his coaches and players for putting themselves in a situation where the stretch drive this season has more riding on it than any season in recent memory.

“We think we’ve done things in our program,” he said. “We’ve matured, we’ve grown up, we’ve become disciplined, we’ve become tougher. And I think all that lends itself. The bottom line, we’ll wait and see. I really believe in our team, in our kids and coaches, and we’re real excited about being in this position. Now what are we going to do with it?” 

Seats go wanting

Colorado athletic director Mike Bohn said about 8,000 tickets remained for the Missouri game at the close of business on Monday and a similar number of seats are available for the annual grudge match with Nebraska on Nov. 23.

Much was made before the season about the this season’s home schedule being one of the best in recent memory. Bohn said he has been pleased with the number of fans who have attended the first four home games, but he admitted being surprised so many tickets remain for the final two.

“Our fans all season long have been a significant part of our game-day experience and Saturday is another great opportunity for our fan base to play a significant role in very important game,” Bohn said.

Bohn refused to speculate on what role Nebraska’s poor performance this season is having on ticket sales for that game. He said he is confident a larger crowd will be on hand the day after Thanksgiving to watch the Buffs take on the Cornhuskers.

CU is averaging 50,041 fans in four home games at Folsom Field this season, according to attendance figures released by the school. Those figures include credentialed media tickets given to corporate sponsors.

Bohn said at least 1,000 veterans are expected at Saturday’s game when the school plans to salute the nation’s veterans. 

Lickin’ their chops

Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel and his receivers haven’t seen a lot of man-to-man coverages this season because the Tigers have a wealth of offensive talent that most defenses find difficult to match.

The Tigers are excited about a chance to play a team like Colorado because the Buffs feature so much man-to-man, relying on a talented tandem of cornerbacks not to get beat.

“They gave Tech fits because they gave them a lot of different looks,” Daniel told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in today’s edition. “They play a lot of Cover Two and a lot of Cover One. It lights our eyes up to see Cover One. We haven’t seen that very often. A lot of people just play Cover Four and say, ‘Hey, dink and dunk us,’ which we have been doing. That’s why we haven’t thrown for many yards in the last two weeks. You look at them, there’s some big plays to be made down the field if we can make them.” 

Notable

One day after being named the national defensive player of the week for his three-interception performance against Texas Tech, CU cornerback Terrence Wheatley was named Big 12 Conference defensive player of the week on Monday. ... Colorado’s Nov. 10 game at Iowa State will be televised on Fox College Sports Central, which is available in only 4 million homes nationally, and will begin at 10:30 a.m. Fox College Sports Central is available locally on Comcast Channel 414. ... Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel was named one of 15 semifinalist Monday for the Davey O’Brien Award, which is given annually to the nation’s best college quarterback as determined by a selection committee.

Amazing to think this Saturday CU will be playing its 4th team currently in the Top 10. It would be nice to go 2-2 and be a virtual lock for a bowl. They really need to contain Daniel and get Hugh some yards in the running game.

GO BUFFS!

I'm loading up my wife and 5 kids and heading for the game from central Iowa. You can't tell me the locals can't fill up Folsom.
Come on! It's gonna be great weather and a great game. Our Buffs can use all the crowd noise and support they deserve!!!

Snow,

I assume Daniel is missing the fact that most teams Missouri has faced don't have cbs capable of matching up one-on-one.

CU does. While Wheat's the stud, Burney's been kind of an unsung hero.

The ticket sales for this game are just a product of other events. Now that the World Series is over, and the Bronco's blew the MNF game, people will turn their attention toward Saturday now. When KU came to town there were 7500 tickets still available on Monday, and fewer than 500 by Saturday morning. I can see the same thing happening here.

What is surprising is that there are still so many tickets left for Nebraska. That game used to sell out in minutes, with the Red transplants buying the individual seats. I guess none of them want to come to Boulder to watch Callahan's last game as a coach.

I already paid my $60 for the Nebraska game. Was shocked twice. Once, that their were tickets available all over the stadium when I tried to buy one. The second time was when I saw the # remaining!

Come on people, I live a thousand miles away and I am going! CU has a great chance with these two games to put itself at the top of the pecking order of the North!

They'll be at willcall and even though I can't go, I want them to go to a couple of Buff fans. BUT I need to provide ID and credit card to get them. Any ideas buffnation?

As for Oklahoma, they go down as the weakest conference champion in Big-12 history, What an embarrassing program...

That will change. Denver fan's are fickle ones that love winners and punish losers. Even elway was nearly thrown out of town in the years before his superbowl win.

If NU goes on an extended stretch of futility, lets see how well they do ticket wise:)

as to tickets, try calling the ticket office and identifying your friends who will receive the tickets - then all they need do is present their id. the athletic ticket office is much more fan friendly these days - they will find a way. in the alternative, email mike bohn - he will get it done.

Nice try dude. You're getting pretty desperate though as that was one LAME trolling attempt...

But I'll nibble: What else, exactly, does Oklahoma have to offer on a Saturday besides OU (or OSU) football? Just curious... We'll see you at the game on Sat?! Yeah... I figured not. Love that you're calling yourself out here...

buffalo_flyer:
Call the ticket office (303.49.BUFFS)... tell them you bought the tix for a friend and that they're going to pick them up for you. Give them your friend's name and as long as they bring an ID you should be fine. Standard will call operating procedure I'd hope. Way to show the support!

Let's go fans!! Get some tix and let's pack OUR house!

Yo gomer,

That, and check out where a lot of the folks here are bloggin' from: Chicago, Jersey, Philly, the UK, the northwest, California, Kansas, the list just goes on. My humble home is in Manhattan (the real one).

Unlike Nebraska and Oklahoma, CU grads go on to lives and jobs in the big, wide world. While we support the program, it isn't the only thing we live for.

OK, that makes sense, Not enough CU grads stay in Colorado to make the games, or they have many other things to occupy their time to be bothered.

All people in Oklahoma and Nebraska do is hang around all week long waiting for a game..

Come on Rod, the fans from other programs are loyal enough to put their money and time into showing up to support their team, that's all.

My theory on the cause of the Buffs weak fan base has always been that such a large portion of their student body is from out of state. I think it is around 60%. This affects the "personality" of the school in many ways, one of which is that there is a lack of strong alumni support along the Front Range. Another reason is that Colorado as a whole has so many transplant residents. I agree that the pro teams, mainly the Broncos, are a factor as well.

Its a crowded sports market...
Denver Area (including Fort) Teams, Major college and Pro:

Avalanche, Rockies, Broncos, Nuggets (later in season), CU, CSU.

Oklahoma (whole state)
OU, OSU.

That level of disparity has NOTHING to do with it. Nothing. At all.

I find it hilariuos flateadhomer is chastising CU fans.
I have a feeling if he left his monitor and keyboard for 5 minutes he would go into cnvulsions.
He is exactly right about the fans in NE. Almost everyone that will talk to me admits it is the only game in town.....further evidenced by the fact that a vast majority of them never attended class in Lincoln.

So thousands of CU fans spend their saturdays watching baseball or basketball in Denver?

I've always wondered.

Those poor souls in Oklahoma and Nebraska, all they can do is go spend their time and money to support their college football team on Saturdays. I bet they wish they had a Pro baseball team to go watch instead.

Yup I'm lying. I did not move to Boulder in 2001. I did not graduate in 2005 and continue buying season tickets. I do not drive up every weekend from Denver and tailgate at the Buff Bus in the Farrand Field lot. I do not sit in Section 215 Row 74. And I do not think the Buffs will win tomorrow.

Gomer, seriously... be careful, dude. I hear Cheney's back out in the woods, too.

Anyway, the bottom line truth is folks around CU are out doing other things. Doesn't mean the football team doesn't have fans or support. Doesn't make the Buffs less of a football team. The whole argument seems sort of irrelevant to winning this particular football game.

And don't forget the MLS. Rapids play in Denver as well.

There is a solid "core" of fans for CU. With so many teams competing, it is now surprising that stadiums only fill up for winners, sans Broncos. Look at the rockies. Until this year their average attendence couldn't have been much over 10k

Snow has a legit point. Lots of folks out there are true homers (not gomer's version).

In fact, maybe next game in Lincoln they should wait until the start of the second half to take attendance since by then Memorial Stadium has begun to look like the second parting of the Red Sea.

Funny how flatiron "thinks" he knows what he is talking about. I am a CU grad, live in SoCal, and watch every buff game I can on TV. I attended the game against Kansas and it was a wonderful experience. There is not much to do around Oklahoma/Nebraska, everyone knows this. Colorado is like California in that there is a myriad of things to do and see entertainment wise on the Front range. 4 sports teams, skiing, and many other things to do and see in the Denver metro area. Same as So Cal. All people have in Oklahoma or Nebraska is the football, that is about it.

Buffs have a nice program now and now that my daughter is a Buff I will try to make it more than once a football season to see a game.

Flatiron- why don't you just go over to your own board and rub elbows with whatever fan you are really part of? Are you so insecure you have to try to dump water on the enthusiasm here? get a life.

That is true, CU does not sell out their stadium..

The rest was just amusing sparring about "why that was" with some of you guys, just like we do every week..

Nothing gives me internet-joy quite like seeing a new message board poster jump in with their support of the Buffs and immediate loathing of flatironshomer! I love it.

Yeah, I guess all these reasons about sum it up... the cool thing is that Hawk and Bohn are doing all that they can to change the attendance... and seeing 50,000+ in the stands every week ain't THAT bad. (In comparison, TT barely hit 40,000 when CU visited them in Lubbock and their stadium holds ~55k)

Just wanted to add that my CU alum friends that have moved to SoCal show up every Sat to a bar that is an hour away from where they live, because it is the local CU bar in Cali. A ton of Buffs show up and they all root them on and play the Fight song, etc. They also went on the road to ASU to see CU play there. Is it reasonable to ask every out of state alum to make weekly trips to see their team play? I don't think so...

The support is there... and I guess I never thought about how spread out it is! Lots of friends that went to school here and went to every football game now reside "back home" on the east coast. Good points made by all...

MAD PROPS: To every one of you out of staters that make it back (or have made it back) for at least one football game. You guys are winners through and through. I can only hope, if I ever move out of state, that my means allow me to show at least that much support. Way to go guys.

One thing we can all agree on:

Flatironshomer is a part of the problem and contributes NOTHING to the solution.

Hey all, I'm an out-of-state guy living up in Spokane, Washington and I'm all for the Buffs. Graduated in '90 in the glory days and married a beautiful Boulder gal. Watching the Buffs on TV is the priority of our fall Saturdays and I try to make one game in person a year with the season tickets the family still maintains (my father-in-law's pair since the late '60's).

I've been reading these things for a while and man have I never read such rediculous nonsense than from Flatirons/2nd/whosyourtoolbox/etc...

Graduated in '98, recently moved back to the East Coast and I can't wait to come back to Boulder this weekend from VA to see my Buffs put a hurtin' on Mizzou.

Flatirons...we Buffs come from everywhere in the US. We do things in life besides live in redneck cities, marry our cousins, and watch Busch series races (sorry if you're a NASCAR fan, obviously I'm not). The point is that the support is there, everywhere. Even in road games. I'll never forget when we went to UCLA a few years back and beat them in the Rose Bowl and there were so many Buffs there it felt like a home game. And alumni groups everywhere get together every Saturday to watch the games when we can't get to them.

Go Buffs beat Mizzou!

The place is called "Grunion's" in Manhattan Beach.

Also, here's a pretty good list for other folks around the nation to hook up with some fellow Buff fans to enjoy gameday:

Right on! As usual, ignore gomer... it's encoded in his genes to miss the point.

I saw some info on watching the game in Chicago. I will be in Philly this weekend, any ideas on where to watch?
