No more Ralphie. You will now associate CU sports with Nelly, the Colorado Prairie Dog.

Nelly will show off his patented Nelly Shuffle before every home CU football game.

The announcement of Nelly came as a welcome surprise for the Colorado Athletic department. Mike Bohn, who has an open phobia of buffaloes, exuded at the press conference this morning, “That darn Nelly, he just gets me so pumped up when he does that shuffle, you can’t help but love the little guy. Now let’s play some football!”

None of this is true, of course, but it got your attention. 

Wouldn’t it also catch the eye of a CU student? What if there were multiple articles like this?

The Colorado Daily’s April Fool’s edition is quickly approaching, and it’s one of the best read, most coveted papers of the year. It’s also available for a discounted rate.

Don’t let this unique advertising opportunity shuffle past. The deadline is Wednesday; call 303.473.1400 today.
