Boulder Trippin': Gameday

The main reason we all traveled 1000 miles across the country was to see the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Colorado Buffaloes in Folsom Field. Thanks to the efforts of the Colorado Dawgs, there was a great tailgate set up on a field near the stadium where thousands of Dawgs fans met. Overall, it was a great day that ended on a sour note. Here are some pictures taken throughout the day:
Folsom Field is gorgeous from the outside. The brick blends in with the rest of the buildings on campus
We arrived at the Georgia tailgate around noon. It was already packed.
The weather was absolutely beautiful.
A few members of the Red Coats came by to fire up the Georgia fans.
Why do opposing teams always feel the need to dress Bulldogs up in their colors when they play us?
A giant, inflatable buffalo just outside the entrance to the stadium...
...and then a real buffalo running around on the field.

The team looked pretty fired up before hand. Then the game happenned.

Folsom Fiels looks really nice from the outside, but inside it sucks. The concourse is an old field house and it feels very outdated. The stadium is pretty small and the loud music definitely made more noise than their crowd. At times, I felt like I was at an ACC game.

Folsom Field kind of looks like Wake's BB&T Stadium. Black, gold, and empty.

you were on the wrong side of the stadium. Didn't suck on our side.

Who is that cool Colorado fan in the picture with Mr. and Mrs. Streit dressed in the black Jim Tressel sweater vest?
