  1. I am look forward to this weekend CC vs UND. Im pretty sure we are on a game winless streak and they normally are starting to make they late season run around now. Luckily we had bye week and guys could relax. We will have Gardner back to and less people banged up which will be crucial for sweeping cc at home, it is a must win.

  2. My prediction for this weekend is that DU_Fan and ChickenChoker elope to Las Vegas and never leave the honeymoon suite the whole weekend.
