Who would win a football game between the CU Buffs and Air Force Falcons? Does it matter? The local media would only care about what Deion Sanders’ celebrity guest list might look like on the CU sideline.
MaGee, healthy cynic
Kiz: Coach Prime and the Buffs are the best story in college football. But the undefeated Air Force Falcons are the best college football team in the state. The Zoomies would ground and pound the Buffs to a pulp. Is there any way we could arrange a showdown at a bowl game? Zoomies 31, Buffs 27. My score. Sticking to it.
I’ve always appreciated how you’re not afraid to point out when something stinks with the Broncos. I rarely read about the horrendous job general manager George Paton has done with this team. Cutting linebacker Randy Gregory and eating the cap hit seems to be in a long line of garbage moves by Paton, dating back to his time with Minnesota and his role in giving quarterback Kirk Cousins a horrific contract. Although Russell Wilson is playing better, I’m certain every Broncos fan would take that trade with Seattle back in a second. Multiple coaches, John Elway and lack of cohesive ownership have been blamed. I’ve rarely seen Paton take any responsibility for the fact the Broncos have the second-longest playoff drought in the AFC. Keep holding people to account, Kiz!

Kiz: The Broncos seem destined to make a top 10 pick in next spring’s NFL draft, when the team would have to decide if selecting a quarterback to supplant Wilson is the way to go. I would be surprised if Paton is still around to make that decision.
Saw your comment that Jaleel McLaughlin should be the Broncos’ starting running back. Point on! I’ve been a fan since he stood out in preseason on offense and special teams. I also remember a similar player back in the day trying to make the team and showing promise: His name? Terrell Davis.
Kevin, Lenexa, Kan.
Kiz: Easy there big fella. I love McLaughln, who would be the Broncos’ first 1,000-yard rusher since Phillip Lindsay if given a chance. But he ain’t T.D., who carried Denver to its first NFL championship.
I have a different opinion about the Broncos’ worst loss of this season. Sure the 70-point debacle in Miami was terrible, but we were never really in that game. Letting the Commanders off the mat when we had them nearly buried is the one that galls me!

Kiz: C’mon, man. What are you trying to do by introducing logic into our rowdy party of hot takes? But you make a valid point. Had the Broncos held that 21-3 lead against Washington, they would enter a very winnable tilt against the New York Jets with a chance to push their record to 3-2, giving life to their dream of making the playoffs.
And today’s parting shot was shouted at me more than once after I dared to suggest CU’s Shedeur Sanders will be a better NFL quarterback than Caleb Williams of USC.
You need to be drug tested, Kiz.
