    So that ASU game is intriguing.

    Not a bad start. 4-1, as mentioned above, is a possibility. Looks to me like the W/L range is somewhere between 3-9 to 5-7. With Mannion coming back, I have trouble finding that 6th win on the schedule. Hopefully, we will be surprised....

    stop dreaming. ASU, sadly, owns us.

    Utah at the end of the season at home helps. I see 5 wins right now. But finding that 6th is tricky. Our best option is OSU. I cringe at the thought of Cyler Miles coming back to CO with UW. He is gonna light us up.

    Buff fans -- I followed CU football for exactly one season now and I noticed there are no Thursday night games for the Buffs -- again -- this year.


    1. Curious, are Thursday night games something that university officials have stated a position on, or is this just luck of scheduling? A third alternative, that the powers-that-be are intentionally scheduling top Pac-12 matchups for Thursday nights, was ruled out after noting the Utah @ OSU game on 10/16 and the Cal @ USC-West game on 11/13.


    2. Do AB'ers (or Buff fans in general) have a position on CU playing Thursday night football? I know some fan bases see Thursday night games as abominations best left to lower tier conferences, but I'm a huge fan. To quote Joe "I don't know adjectives from adverbs" Theisman in an ESPN commercial, "there's something special about football at night... something je ne sais quoi". The fan excitement (and alcohol levels) at night games is so much higher than nooners or early afternoon games -- as a fan in the stands, I find that energy contagious. Beyond that, if I'm attending a game on Thursday night I know that I'm not missing any "big" games on TV, as they'll likely be on Saturday night. Alternatively, it allows it me to spend Saturday with my family.


    Oh, and I noted/remembered again how incredibly smart the Pac was in putting the Pac-12 CCG on campus versus a "neutral" site. This is from my perspective in the ACC and B1G where fans have one week to make travel arrangements if their team doesn't clinch the division early.

    We're doing a 2-1 with UMass. It's a good opportunity to reconnect with our large East Coast Allumnis. They are FBS. They're in the MAC conference.

    I'm pretty sure Thursday night games are just luck of the draw. They spread out a couple/few each to the BCS (or whatever we'll call them now) Conferences throughout the year. CU played in one a couple years ago if I recall, and was the Georgia game several years back a thursday night game?

    I think we are all for it. National exposure, no distractions (outside of NFL Thursday night game) are both great. My only request is that it follows a bye week.

    I don't think this is the case.

    Interesting looking over the schedule some. UDub has a chance to make some real noise next season. They get ASU, Stanford, and UCLA at home.

    This doesn't really explain much, but something I found on SB Nation

    We rarely expect to see elite teams playing on Thursday nights. These games are usually reserved for programs that are happy to risk iffy weeknight attendance for a spot on national television. We've seen a lot of Georgia Tech on Thursday nights over the years, for instance. But the big teams and huge games are typically saved for Saturdays.

    Or a chance to fall on their face.

    We played ASU on a Thursday two seasons ago, and West VA in 2009. For in-conference games, the conference dictates who plays on Thursdays and when; for non-conference games, it's up to TV and the ADs. Weekday night games in Boulder are a logistical nightmare, I'm fine with not having any.

    I agree with you. They'll have a new coaching staff and lose their top QB, RB, and TE, so I think next year might be more of a rebuilding year.

    While those games used to be dreaded, now it's badge of honor. CU just isn't attractive right now. VT loves those weeknight games.

    The Big 12 wasn't so bad at a neutral venue. The ACC has been mostly bad. The Pac-12 doesn't travel well, so very smart on their smart. The only conference that hands-down should keep it at a neutral site is the SEC.

    Agreed, I don't think ESPN wants the worst teams playing. I remember in the mid-90s, it was more of a way for the non-elites to get national exposure. That's no longer the case. They aren't showing CSU, Northern Illinois, and Louisiana Tech anymore, but real BCS teams.

    I'd rather have them than play on the P12 Network. One at home a year is fine IMO.
