Student government has decided unanimously to declare war against rival CU-Boulder.
In a resolution passed at the Associated Students of CSUâ€™s weekly meeting, the organization â€œofficially authorizeâ€ Steve Fairchild to use force against the Buffaloes during the Rocky Mountain Showdown on Saturday.
To show its support for the Rams, ASCSU is putting on a pep rally to help students get pumped up for the biggest and first game of the Colorado football season.
The Lory Student Center Plaza this afternoon will be filled with students and other Ram fans showing their school spirit while eating free buffalo burgers.
Grill the Buffs has become a Ram tradition, according to Nate Fiedler, chief of staff of the Associated Students for Colorado State University.
â€œItâ€™s one of those few events where CSUâ€™s community collides on the Plaza,â€ Fiedler said.
Joining the display of student support and love for the CSU Rams is the football teamâ€™s coaches and captains.
ASCSU estimates that between 2,000 to 6,000 people will pass through the Plaza tomorrow afternoon, and the organization hopes that that number will continue to increase, said Beau Loendorf, director of ASCSUâ€™s Student Services.
â€œItâ€™s a tradition that we will keep for a while,â€ he said.
Grill the Buffs goes from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.
