Rocky Mountain Showdown 2010
September 4, 2010 by staff
Up next: Today `s annual showdown with the University of Denver (7 pm, Ciber Mobile).
“This is like our fourth in a row CSU,” said Hemp. “It` sa pity that don `t play football, but that would be the fourth game against a team of Front Range in a row.”
Buffs (2-0) beat the Cowboys and Bears 2-0 scores. The set point against the Falcons did not count in the standings, but CU prevailed 2-1.
The Pioneers (2-1) will be the most formidable team, and the biggest rival, the CU have faced so far. DU opened the season with a 5-1 victory over Nebraska and is coming off a 3-0 victory over Buffalo last Sunday.
There are a lot of mutual respect between hemp and DU coach Jeff Hooker, who has led the Pioneers to four consecutive Sun Belt titles.
“The world of soccer is a very small world. There are very few people in the game you don` t care for, “Hemp said. “We share a lot of thoughts and what kind of help each other with training and even with our staff.”
DU and CU each have 15 players in the state of Colorado in their lists. Interestingly, isn `t much competition among the coaches in the way of local recruitment, the numbers might suggest.
“Every once in front, while` ll go to the head, but not as often as you might think, “said Hemp. “Schools are so distinctly different. Some children want to go to a large public university and others prefer a small private school.”
Today `s CU-DU game is part of the invitation of depleted uranium. The Buffs will play either UNLV or Drake at 10:15 am on Monday.
CU last season, ranked No. 15 at the time, defeated the Pioneers 1-0 in double overtime at the CU Invitational.
Mark Wetmore `s cross-country teams open the 2010 season today as the hosts of the CU Alumni Time Trial. Women `s race will begin at 8:30 am with the men` s to follow the race at 9:15 am
The Buffs are at number six nationally for the men `s face in the USTFCCCA preseason poll. The check-in at No. 13 women.
