For Love of the Rams

Fans at CSU men’s basketball games watch the team, band, cheerleaders, and dancers. An integral part of these basketball games, however, is largely invisible—the individuals who sit at a table along the north side of the court behind the possession arrow.

Fort Collins native Joe Mazur (B.S., ’94) knew he wanted to be a sports broadcaster since he was a young child. His version of “must-see TV” was a Channel 9 sportscast.

That’s especially true in the springtime, when conditions turn into a roller coaster, with balmy spring days followed by abrupt returns to winter.

Ramily affair: Oglesby/Hutton clan defines CSU pride

Some things are so definitively green and gold that they perfectly illustrate CSU and everything it stands for. Think CAM the Ram. The Oval. The Aggie “A” painted on the hill west of Fort Collins. And you would also have to include families – multiple generations of students who brought their dreams to Fort Collins.
