    Wow, that's a big number. Can anyone remember us being this big of an underdog in a BIG XII conference game? I wonder what the point spread was for the 70-3 debacle. I doubt it was 67. :lol:

    Honestly, that's better than I expected. I think we might just cover that spread.

    Honestly, I thought it would be in the 40's. When we are that big of a dog, something isn't right here. I think Bohn would've fired him already if he could or maybe thats just wishful thinking.

    Texas has not been covering against the spread and CU keeps the starters in during garbage time.

    I think the unknown factor this week will be Mack Brown. With OU struggling he is looking at this year as his shot to go the MNC at the end of the year. He is going to start looking for style points and he wants a good tune up for OU game.

    yep. that's the x factor. texas is going to be able to name their own score in this game. on the one hand, they may run it up in order to impress the voters. if mack chooses that route, they'll cover the 31.5 easily. on the other hand, he may decide to show a bit of mercy because hawkins hasn't demonstrated any ability to pull players out of texas and it is better for ut if CU keeps a crappy coach like him than the remote possibility that CU gets someone good in to replace him. if the latter, then i would expect it will be very close to the line set.

    i don't see CU keeping it closer than 4 scores in any case, unfortunately.

    maybe i am wrong. maybe this is where it all gets turned around. we can hope, i guess.

    Have we forgotten that under Hawkins we were shut out for the first time in over 10 years at Missouri last year. Nothing seems to surprise me anymore under coach hawkins weither it's predicting 10 wins this season, getting shut out, point spreads that have us as ridiculous underdogs, or just his plan excuses about everything else makes me sick.

    i think when i was a frosh, waaaaaaaaaaaaay back when, i took CU plus like 49 or 50 against the fuskers and lost.

    that's the biggest spread i remember. i remember because i ****ing lost with 7 tds going before the kickoff. how does that even happen?
