CU student Taylor Rhode emailed me and several other members of the media today to let us know he is hoping to finish the season this week against Nebraska with a show of support for the Colorado football team.
Rhode was one of the students who organized the ”Wear POWDER BLUE to the CU
game” facebook event a few weeks ago.
Here is part of his email. Make sure to check out the link.
“I started another event encouraging everyone to go to the game and wear their
BLACK & GOLD to show the players we are still here and still support them. The
original message of the powder blue was lost on a lot of people, so I wanted to
show that the intent was, and still is, to support the players on the team.
“The guys on the team, especially the seniors, have been through a tough year. We
want them to know we support them through the good times and the rough patches.
The players are out there working their tails off, and we will be in the stands
supporting them next Friday.
“I also wanted to encourage everyone to show up before the game starts, and stay
until after it is over. If anything I just want people to be aware about the game and go to it. The
last thing I ever want to see in Folsom are empty seats.”
