Colorado State will hold a press conference on Thursday afternoon to make a "major announcement" about the athletics department. The press conference will begin at 1:00 p.m. MT. It is widely believed to be for the firing of football head coach Steve Fairchild.
The Colorado St. Rams have one game left, against Wyoming, on Saturday before the season ends. The team currently stands at 3-8 and a loss would send the Rams to their third consecutive 3-9 season. Fairchild has had only one winning season with the team, his first in 2008. The team went 7-6 and won the New Mexico Bowl.
If the press conference isn't to announce Fairchild's firing, then that's going to be a real curveball.
