CSU Pueblo has no plan or desire to move up to D1. UNC did it and now they are a joke. From what I hear CSU Pueblo's main goal is to be a top team in D2 and they are now there.

The final poll was released today and obviously CSU Pueblo is number 1.


Colorado State-Pueblo has been ranked No. 1 in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll six times in the program’s short history, but the seventh time means the most. The ThunderWolves shutout No. 2 Minnesota State-Mankato, 13-0, in the NCAA Division II national championship game to earn the school’s first national title in any sport. This was the first shutout in the national title game since 1997 when Northern Colorado beat New Haven (Conn.), 51-0. Colorado State-Pueblo finishes the season ranked No. 1 with a school-record 14 wins in 2014.

I was at the Bronco game today and they announced the CSU Pueblo team showed clips from the game and congratulated them on winning the national championship. Very nice thank you Broncos!

This is a pic of it on the main screen.

Before you go about telling everyone what a joke UNC is, you should remember that rise of the RMAC and CSUP is directly related to the decisions made by UNC, NDSU, and SDSU to move from DII to DI-FCS. Before that time, most of the better athletes went to the North Central Conference schools because it was a much better conference -- especially in football.

While the UNC football team has faltered, UNC has made the DI tournament in Women's Volleyball four times and in Men's basketball as well. They also have the only DI baseball team in Colorado (aside from AFA, but they are a different animal).

CSUP has done great things in 7 years, but their coach will be poached at some point to a larger program.

Interesting. I have not heard that before so can not comment on it. I just know that most people say UNC should of stayed in D2.

Will the coach leave from CSU Pueblo to a larger university? While anything is possible I do not see that happening. He is a Puebloan and his wife is from here and has a good job at St Mary Corwin Medical Center. I have heard talk of him getting a raise and the university making some much needed improvements at the Thunderbowl as well as adding more scholarships. That should happen to give them the best chance to keep winning D2 national titles.

Depends. What if a bottom-tier BCS team offers him a job? It's unlikely, but there's always the possibility of seeking further recognition in a more recognizable area of college football.

CU needs all the help it can get.

CU needs a lot of help. As it stands now CSU Pueblo is the only college football team in the state with a chance of winning more national titles this decade. I just do not see the coach leaving because of that on top of the other reasons I mentioned. Kind of like Fisher DeBerry of the Air Force a few years ago. Sure he could of left but never wanted too and retired from there.

CU has never been more irrelevant. I'm quite sure that Air Force would stomp them and CSU Fort Collins had better stop playing the Buffs to bump up their sos.

CSU Fort Collins? No, there's CSU, CSU Global, and CSU-Pueblo.

Coming soon: CSU Denver: CSU's school of the future.
