Colorado Buffaloes head coach Mike MacIntyre decided to give the Colorado State Rams some bulletin board material after practice Friday, August 19th.

Coach MacIntyre was trying to start the fire in his guys with these comments, but CSU head coach Mike Bobo stayed a little cool with his retort.

The smack talk between both teams is going to heat up in the next week and a half.

Even though the spread is anywhere from 7.5 to 10 points in favor of the Buffs, expect an even matchup between the two teams. Colorado State beat themselves last year and they look to redeem themselves this year.

The Rocky Mountain Showdown is Friday, September 2nd. Kickoff is at 6:05pm mountain time and is on ESPN.
