On this special edition of the RamsCast, Rich Kurtzman of 5280 Sports Network sits down with Colorado State Rams Athletics historian John Hirn.

Hirn is not only a gracious guest, but also likely the most knowledgeable person alive when it comes to Rams athletics history.

Rich and John discuss the ancient beginnings of Colorado State (when it was called multiple other names), the great Harry Hughes, stories of how the CSU–CU rivalry formed and of how it developed over the years.

John highlights some of the best matchups in Rocky Mountain Showdown history, talks about the CSU Sports Hall of Fame and gives a great recap of Bob Davis’ career as head coach.
