At Friday's Rocky Mountain Showdown, I was decked out in CU attire, since my daughters are students there. And when passing through the Rams' section of the parking lot, I tended to get one of two reactions. The first was: "Fuck you! Fuck CU!" And the second was "FUCK YOU! FUCK CU!"

Astonishingly, most CSU boosters maintained this level of passion throughout the game, during which CU blew a 17-7 third quarter lead by giving up 24 unanswered points to lose 31-17. The contrast between them and CU fans was illustrated by a series of Jumbotron juxtapositions. Shot of CSU section: Everyone going crazy! Shot of CU section: Bro looking at his phone.

Jake Shane captures some of these differences in photos on view below. Check them out here -- and click to see the complete CSU and CU Face Off at the 2014 Rocky Mountain Showdown slide show.

That's because CSU fans are Republicans & WINNING is KEY, whereas CU fans are 'Stoner' Dumbocraps who have no GOAL of Winning, as LIBS hate winners !!!

This game blows. CU wins...who cares? CU loses to a mid-tier non-power 5 team and it sucks. Time to dump this game.

CU leads series 62–22–2. Could be why.

Most of the kids at CU are out of state snobs. CSU students are a more close knit group while CU students just care about getting drunk on daddy's dime.

As bad as these teams are, it's a sham they can't both lose.
I guess someone needs to be the worst.

Don't have a dog in this fight, but CU fans are fair weather fans at best. They talk so much shit and have zero to back it up with from their less-than-mediocre sports teams. CSU fans, from my experience, are more poised and dignified when it comes to passion for their team.

No, Liberals like winners...other Liberals to be specific.  On the other hand, many good Americans don't like the foul attitude that defines your yappy little cult.  Your cult is filled with losers such as yourself.  As proof you are an idiot, WHY WOULD ANYONE LOOK AT EITHER OF THESE TEAMS TO FIND WINNERS?  That's one of the many, many, many, many things wrong with the failed cultsevaturd movement, they don't let facts get in the way of their cult propaganda.  BOTH schools deal with facts, so by definition both must be Liberal because FACTS ARE LIBERAL.
