The stadium is named after former head coach Harry Hughes, who is the only football coach in CSU history to go undefeated twice, once in 1915 (7-0) and again in 1916 (6-0-1). Hughes is second in school history with a 57% winning percentage to Sonny Lubick who won 59%. Lubick also has the most bowl appearances of any CSU coach with 9. He also coached in the former WAC, where 8 teams broke off and formed the Mountain West Conference.
With a 63% winning percentage, the Mountain West has the best winning percentage in bowls than any other conference in college football. Who in the past 5 years have gone 18-5 in bowls. Where Colorado State has gone 5-7 all time in bowls. Who has a football history of 103 years and in the last 20 years has a record of 129-113. That’s a winning percentage of 53%. But in the last 10 years, CSU is 54-69. A winning percentage of 43%. Going down. Just like the beer that I’ll be putting down at Hughes Stadium, where it’s still legal.
Another issue I would like addressed is the Ring of Fame and the retirement of jersey number. Right now I see that Eddie Hanna’s #21 and Fum McGraw’s #48 are retired. That’s it. I’m not saying you should retire just anyone’s number but I think there are other candidates that should be considered.
