    What is our schedule for next year? I was looking on the cu sute and they just have CSU, @ Fresno, and a TBA.

    Is it just this seasons conference schedule with locations reversed? Anybody hear anything on who we are working with for the TBA? Hopefully a weak MAC, WAC or Sun Belt team at home.

    This. I would imagine the order would be different though.

    It can't be to recruit a Somali QB. When I was there, some of the less friendly locals would throw rocks at you as you drove by, but luckily their arm was on par with Cody's and they weren't much of a threat (again, like Cody). Then again, they were also easy to spot ahead of time because they apparently really liked their rock, and they would retrieve it each time they threw it. The guys you had to watch out for were the ones who used a leather sling to throw their rock. Oh, and the ones with AK-47s.

    not to be a downer, but I think some of the cupcake or MAC and WAC teams would be licking their chops to play us these days. Toledo, Hawaii...

    So, 2012 Sept. 1; CSU in Denver, Sept. 8; a home game to be announced, Sept 15 @ Fresno St. Then ASU, Stanford, UCLA, Utah and Washington at home. Arizona, Oregon, USC and WSU on the road. I wonder who the "TBA" team will be?

    Yeah, we need a game similar to New Mexico State in '05. Just a one off game against a non-BCS opponent that we win.

    Once upon a time we actually beat the f out of teams. Wasn't it 39-0. I remember they were pretty much 3 deep towards the end of the game

    Yes, we shut them out and we did it pretty much sleep-walking through the entire game.

    That was my very first game as a CU student and as a marching band member. It was really cool because they did a fireworks show at halftime and in order to do it, they had to turn off all the lights. For safety reasons, we had to get down to the field before they turned off the lights so we got to watch the fireworks from the field and relax until they got the lights turned back on. It was probably the coolest Folsom Field experience I've had.

    Ok, I deserved that. Perhaps I should explain a little more:

    I had just started dating a girl I had met in band (who I'm still with today) and we got to share that moment together. Everyone shares the same experience in the stands. When big victories or really exciting things happen on the field, it's everyone together and one big mass of humanity celebrating and sharing the experience. This was unique because it was just us laying on the grass watching the fireworks and sharing an intimate moment. So even though there were tens of thousands of people in the stands, it felt like everything was happening just for us. So when I say it's the coolest experience in Folsom I've ever had, I mean that it's more than just a game against a DII (at the time) school. It was the first game of my CU career and the first time where I feel like I really began to bond with the girl I love.

    Need to try and get out of that Fresno State game, and yes, find New Mexico (State?) or Idaho for the final OOC game. We don't need Bohn scheduling a game at the swamp or something next year

    Can't be - and that's why the schedule isn't up yet. In the Pac-12, everyone will be playing nine conference games, instead of eight like we were used in the Big 12. As a result, there is not a clean home-and-home with three teams from the north, then trade out every two years with the other three teams from the north. CU (and everyone else) will play four conference games v. the other division each season, which actually requires an eight year cycle from start to finish.

    Each team will play a team from the other division six times over the eight years, with three at each school and two byes.

    For example, CU played Washingston State at home this year. That doesn't mean CU will play WSU on the road next year. The schedule could play out as follows:

    2011 - @CU
    2012 - bye
    2013 - @ WSU
    2014 - @ CU
    then
    2015 - @ WSU
    2016 - bye
    2017 - @ CU
    2018 - @ WSU

    Once the 2012 schedule is worked out, we can figure out the remaining schedules for the next six seasons. All we know for now is that Colorado will have five Pac-12 home games next year, and that the home-and-home with the South division will include Arizona and USC on the road, with UCLA, Arizona State, and Utah at home.

    I am well aware the dangers of challenging Montana, and I'm not saying he's wrong - but if I understand it correctly, we rotate the schedule every two years. If correct, we would play the same Pac-12 teams next year that we played this year, simply swapping the locations. Then, in 2013, we would change the North teams we play and start another 2 year rotation. It works out the same - we would play the North teams 6 out of 8 years, with one 2 year cycle off on a rotating basis.

    Wait a minute, am I missing something here? When we were in the Big 12, we played 8 conference games each year. 5 against the Northe, then 3 against the South on a rotating basis. Aren't we doing the same thing in the Pac or did it up to 9 conference games and I didn't notice it?

    This could very well turn out to be right. I stand corrected. :thumbsup:
    It's just that I seem to remember, when the schedules were first announced, that it would be an unbalanced schedule over the eight years (perhaps something to do with the northwest schools and trips to L.A. ... we'll see).
