Colorado athletic director sends letter to students after ‘rushing the field’ at home games

The athletic director at Colorado writes a letter advising students not to “rush the field” during home games.

After both home games this season, Colorado fans ran onto the field.

In a letter to students, University of Colorado athletic director Rick George pleaded with them not to disrupt upcoming Buffaloes games at Folsom Field by storming the field.

Only a few days remain until Colorado’s highly anticipated matchup against the eighth-ranked USC Trojans, according to George’s message to students.

The Buffaloes are the underdogs, and if they pull off an upset, spectators may try to storm the field.

Colorado is off to a 3-1 start under first-year coach Deion Sanders despite coming off a 1-11 campaign.

The Buffaloes faced TCU on the road to begin the season.
After consecutive victories at home over Nebraska and Colorado State, Colorado fans flocked to the field.

Despite the fact that “rushing the field” has long been a tradition in college football, George wrote in an email that numerous schools and conferences are now strictly prohibiting it because it poses a serious risk to the safety of the players, coaches, staff, and other spectators.
The University and Pac-12 regulations are broken when players rush the field.

After Folsom Field’s two victories, George continued, the university received complaints about the conduct of the fans and students.

Unfortunately, we received a disproportionate number of complaints about fan behavior (particularly student behavior) following our first two home games, and after both of our victories, students and fans “rushed the field. I kindly ask you to refrain from acting in such a way at any upcoming events as this is unacceptable.
” .

Last week, Colorado was easily defeated by the Oregon Ducks.

This coming weekend, the Buffaloes hope to restart their season. But in order to win again, they must defeat USC and make program history.
In its 16 contests with USC, Colorado has lost every time.
