Classic Rick Reilly line...

I was buddies with Reilly at CU and after. No surprise one of the greatest smart asses in human history. When OU beat the Buffs 82-42 in 1981 (?), his opening line in his Camera article was "When Chuck Fairbanks told us he had a team for the 80s, we thought he was talking years, not points." Fairbanks refused to talk to Reilly the rest of his tenure in Boulder.
