No flaming please.
Well, this is the first year I think we(CSU) can honestly win. I know we've gone 3-9 3 straight years and just lost our two best players (Capi and Orakpo). But moving to the 3-4 will help with that loss as we can move some DE's to cover for Orakpo and some DT to DE to cover for Capi. The 3-4 definitely fits our players better.
We essentially have 90% of our players returning with nearly 20 starters returning as well. The loss of Pete Thomas is a plus as well and we have 3-5 players who were out all year returning this year. McElwain is obviously a great game planner and I think that makes the difference
I think CSU wins because from what I can tell its a massive rebuilding year for CU. New QB and 3 returning starters on offense and an abysmal DL. You guys are probably going to have to start 5+ true freshmen against us and I doubt they play well in their first game of their college career. The loss of Richardson really hurts CU's chances.
The wildcard is Connor Wood, but also its his first game ever. I don't think CU can win with a new QB, no weapons on offense and probably going to have to start 4+true freshmen on defense.

My prediction is a miserably boring game, in a ****** environment with the over under at 27+/-
Of course i think CU takes it.
"Don't argue with an idiot, he'll drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."
Fair enough. But you place to much stock in this great 'game-planning' coach who no one has ever seen coach.
Additionally, you place all this stock in us lacking offensive weapons, but pretty much gloss over the loss of your two best players. Additionally, the first game in a new system is going to be tough.
I know you're psyched about having a new coach, but you should probably temper your expectations a bit. CSU has almost no talent.
CU wins going away as we simply out-athlete CSU, even if it is young guys.
"Right now Alec Burks is using and abusing this Texas defense"
I think it is still way too early for predictions. Your spring game is tomorrow and we shall see how many sacks your offensive line gives up.
My way too early prediction:
CU 17 CSU 10
Cu fans 28000 CSU fans 17000
I predict another miserable gameday experience at Mile High.
CU should win another yawner.

It seems like Fairchild was a good recruiter, but lots of his best talent couldn't get admitted or is now suspended for the game.
Lots of the players who will be back for the Buffs were put thru the fire last season. I don't see where CSU has the horses to win this game, much less 3 total next season.
no flaming please???? you come to the another teams board, start a thread wherein you claim an unproven coach's a relatively unproven qb and a new defensive alignment without your teams 2 best players will lead to a 2 touchdown victory and our team will have no shot????
eat me you sheep ****ing moron... i would say you had balls but we all know they are sheep balls... which means its 2 genital warts on a glorified labia.. shut the **** up.. your team has no talent... it is void of talent... 45-3 buffs
