    The Buffs are officially onto the second half of their season, riding high on a wave of improvement-based optimism. However, the schedule gods were far from kind with the back-loaded portion of the slate that they are about to tackle. *Over the next six game weeks, CU will play some of the best teams in the Pac-12, a set that boast a combined 27-8 record in 2014. *When the national media said at the beginning of the year that the Pac-12 was the best conference in America, they weren't kidding. *This bunch is loaded. *As well as the Buffs have been playing recently, I'm starting to worry that all of this momentum could get drowned out over the next month and a half against the West's elite programs.

    It's undeniable that Colorado Football is in a better position today than it was a year ago. *Across the board, this program has improved. Dramatically. If you don't recognize that - whether through ignorance, resentment, or jealousy - your opinions are no longer welcome. Yet, with one fewer win on the books than this point in 2013, and a bevy of difficult games on the horizon, I'd be kidding myself to ignore the fact that a 2-10 finish is a real possibility. *It sucks, but that's what could be on the table.

    In a results based business, I'm worried about the impact that could have on the fanbase. *The big question for me is how, exactly, will BuffNation take the results over the next few weeks. *The Broncos are rolling, basketball is just around the corner, and ski season is about to ramp up. *As exciting as the team has proven to be this campaign, will the fans stick with this bunch if results continue to mirror what we've seen to-date, or will the denizens grow distracted and disinterested, as they have in the past? *Will the fans - alums, students,*et al*- still show up and help create a competitive atmosphere next Saturday against UCLA, November 1st against Washington, or November 29th against Utah? *God, I hope so.

    See, I've bought in. *I've already committed to going to every game played in the state this fall, so I will be in attendance, hell or high water. *I shouldn't be alone on this journey. *For half a decade, the fan base - myself included - has been screaming for any sign of life from those in Black and Gold. *Well, we finally have one, and we*as a group need to vote with our*feet and show up. *The team sure has, now BuffNation needs to have their back. *Make your plans now; show up next week, show up in November. *Get it done.

    --

    Kickoff from the historic LA Memorial Coliseum is set for 4pm MST. *Televised coverage can be found on Pac-12 Networks, with the radio call on 850 KOA.
