A-Z Challenge: R is for...

RAMS... Colorado State University RAMS that is.  I graduated from CSU in May 2004 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Bioresource and Agricultural Engineering, Bioresource Concentration. 

I love football and am looking forward to the upcoming season which is the debut of our new Head Coach Jim McElwain who was the Alabama Offensive Coordinator.

Our fight song:

Fight on, you stalwart Ram team,
On to the goal!
Tear the [opponent]'s line asunder,
As down the field we thunder!
Knights of the Green and Gold,
Fight with all your might!
Fight on you stalwart Ram team,

And of course I can't forget our unofficial fight song, Fum's Song (Our mascot used to be the Aggies when it was Colorado A&M):

"I'll sing you a song of college days, and tell you where to go.
Aggies, where your knowledge is, and Boulder to spend your dough.
C.C. for your sissy boys, and Utah for your times, D.U. for your ministers, and drunkards School of Mines.
Don't send my boy to Wyoming U. a dying mother said. Don't send him to old Brigham Young, I'd rather see him dead.
But send him to our Aggies, it's better than Cornell.
Before I'd see him in Boulder, I'd see my son in hell!"

And now I'm even more excited because I was researching current NFL players who were Rams and saw that Caleb Hanie just signed with the Denver Broncos, my all time favorite NFL team, so it's going to be great to see a CSU boy backing up Manning, I can hardly wait for August!


  1. I was in fort Collins inoctober for a meeting up at the foothills campus. Very pretty place to go to college.

  2. I also love football. However, I am a Giants fan! But, I will say that I am also a fan of the Manning brothers so I will be rooting for Denver as well...

  3. Alright, we get season tickets so 9/29 this year!!! Go Air Force! :)
