The greatest fans in college football you ask?  Wish I was with them.  Some of the funnier tweets I came across.

I worked in Dallas today. 

 

Got an earlier flight home to Denver. 

 

I counted 24 husker shirts and hats and all said they were going to the game. I’m going with 5 others, 6 total.

Played golf in Holyoke today. Saw 10 golfers all day and three of them were in Husker apparel.

 

I-76 was full of Nebraska plates and saw more than a few flags, stickers, and license plate frames.

Well if the member (who lives in Chicago) ever invites me out again. I'll be sure to drop a line :)

Bumping this to talk about the results of "keep the red out."

 

It was always a ploy to get Husker fans to come to Boulder. And it worked.

Colorado Cashes In

One of the most exciting Pac-12 games of the non-conference season was also incredibly lucrative for the host school.

 

Colorado rallied to beat Nebraska in overtime in Week Two while smashing the Folsom Field cash record.

 

With the receipts tallied and books closed, the Buffaloes provided the Hotline with an official count from the Cornhuskers’ first visit since Colorado joined the Pac-12:

 

 

The Buffs collected $3.5 million in revenue from the game, effectively doubling the previous school record.

 

Oregon’s appearance in Boulder in 2015 generated $1.8 million in game-day revenue, while Utah’s visit in 2016 — with the division title at stake — produced a tick under $1.8 million.

 

The windfall from the Nebraska game was due, in large part, to Cornhuskers fans gobbling up available tickets and making the trip to Boulder.

 

According to CU, ticket sales were responsible for $2.7 million — and that’s just from single-game sales; revenue from season tickets isn’t allocated on a per-game basis.

 

Additionally, the Buffaloes took in $700,000 in concessions (a typical game is $388,000) and $66,000 in merchandise sales (typical: $55,000).

 

 

Key point: Parking isn’t included in athletic department revenue; it’s handled by campus.

 

But if you assume a low-six figure total for parking and whatever indirect unallocated benefits the game-day experience produced (donations, season-ticket sales), then the total income for the university is pushing $4 million.

I wish Memorial sold beer. 

 

Having two beers during the CU game was great. No one acted like an idiot anywhere near us, we drank plenty of water as well. But it was great to sip a cold one on a hot day and it kept the juices flowing!
