They say that an army marches on its stomach, and the Colorado Buffaloes also need full bellies to stampede. While the team’s 10-5 win at Stanford this weekend may have left the fans and players feeling somewhat unsatisfied, the Buffaloes still got a warm meal after the game.
According to ESPN’s David Lombardi, The Buffaloes went to In-N-Out where they spent $780 to order 165 Double-Doubles and 165 orders of fries. (No truth to the rumor that this is known locally as the Vince Grippi special).
The tradition of visiting the popular California fast-food chain did not start with the Buffaloes. Former Oregon State coach Mike Riley used to take his team to In-N-Out whenever it won and there was one nearby.
