    Now we will see. I am so ****ing stoked with the progress we've seen this year. Next week will be illuminating. A beat-down on paper seems likely but how we play matters to me right now. I don't believe in moral victories and I want to win at the big house. But, whatever happens, this is a real-deal tester. Our team will be challenged by a whole new level of competition. And, now the gauntlet comes so whatever happens we have to get better, every week from here forward.

    We can win, but it will take near-perfect execution and a few breaks. I think for me the biggest positive is that we clearly outclassed those last 2 opponents and did what good teams do to bad teams.

    Let's go Buffs! Get after it and beat michigan!

    Oh, and if you want a tiny ray of hope to cling to, then how's this? Leavitt coached for Harbaugh at the niners. Maybe he has him wired and can scheme the game of his life defensively.

    It's hard to out scheme size and speed. Harbough has the easier coaching job. CU needs to play a clean disciplined game and make Michigan pay for any mistakes. Generating turnovers and scoring points off of them will be key to making this a game.

    I like the way our D is playing, and I'm hopeful that they can keep us in the game, even if it takes a while for the O to get going.

    The Buffs are playing excellent ball and I am happy for the young men. Meatchiken is going to be a stern challenge but we have a chance. I feel better about this team going to AnnArbor than I have any of our others in a long time.

    The same Nicholls we thumped 48-0 last year. Anything can happen in college football.

    No P5 team should only beat Nicholls by 2. Nobody.

    80-0 in the first half thus far this season.

    I know we all expected to win both games, and we were all cautiously optimistic that both games would be comfortable wins, but I don't think anyone could have predicted that we would be so fricking dominant from the outset in both games.

    It's been nice to see.

    didn't see game today because P12network, but looks like a solid w

    hopes are high for the future

    watching other P12 teams around the league also has hopes high, i'm not sure this is a good division this year. perhaps, capitalization is in our future.

    I am so excited for this game. This team seems very different, especially on defense.

    I'm not really worried about our kids knowing how big a game this is, they know. Let's have a good week and crash the party in Ann Arbor.

    I was in a way more impressed by the ISU win. Classic let down game between two huge games. Wouldn't have been surprised by a slow start or sluggish play, but this team was crisp from the opening snap and did exactly what they needed to. That is a sign of maturity and good preparation. Very impressed.

    looks like a down year for defense in the Pac. Will play in our favor. I would put our D as possibly the best in conference? They will keep us in games while our offense has a chance to score a lot of points.

    Listening to some of the postgame stuff, I liked what I heard. We have a good blend of senior maturity and young, enthusiastic talent. If these kids can stay healthy and keep this mindset we can have a chance in every game we play this season.

    Missed the game due to an all day concert but I'm so damn giddy from what I'm reading. Right now I'm more excited about my buffs than I am the Broncos. That's saying a lot...

    The competition level does not matter, this team is stronger, faster, more skilled, mature, smarter and believes. Let's double the salaries of Chev and Leavitt, keep them around for a decade. The Rise is real!!!
