CU was able to zoom up six spots in the standings as fairly heavy rain fell for about three hours ... Full Story

Neanderthals were nifty at controlling fire

Neanderthals were nifty at controlling fire, according to CU-Boulder researcher A new study involving the University of Colorado Boulder shows clear evidence of the continuous control of fire by Neanderthals in Europe dating back roughly 400,000 years, yet another indication that they weren’t dimwitted brutes as often portrayed.

Mike Moran’s Sports Commentary November 27, 2010 So, the Colorado-Nebraska football wars are over now, likely for good……………I suspect that not many fans in either state will shed a tear today over the end of a series that began in 1898 and became formal from 1948 and CU’s entry into the old Big Seven Conference through yesterday’s 45-17 blowout in Lincoln by the Huskers…………I’m going to miss the annual game terribly, but you’d have to grow up in ...

“Glory, Glory Colorado”

By Mike Moran The tragic fires that raged in the foothills near Boulder are over, but now, more flames are raging in and around the town…………they come from the hair (and pants) on fire of CU football fans, boosters, some portion of the student body, outraged bomb-throwers on blogs and sports talk shows, and some of the scathing Denver media, also engaged with Josh McDaniels, the stumbles of the Broncos, and the collective outrage of Broncomaniacs, whose numbers, ...
