that's a freaking march thru hades for a small school.
lets hope they overlook us or we're toast.
seriously, if that's what we've got to rely on to get a road win at freaking toledo then this program is in deeper trouble than i previously believed.
The Toledo game has "trap game" written all over it for us...extra short week of prep + relatively lengthy trip + emotional letdown possibility after the CSU game = trap game for us...while we should pound them to pieces, this game still makes me nervous....
Since when did Florida International become a power house that anyone has to worry about... Other than travel for them that is a very winnable game
FIU's getting better. Regardless, props to Toledo for playing a big boy schedule. They'll probably be the most battle ready team in the MAC once conference play starts for them.
they are improving. and their facilities are now first rate (probably better than ours from what i have heard).
and the game is in miami.
that's a pretty macho schedule altogether for a small program. hell, think about if that were CU's out of conference schedule--- lower tier b10 school, middle tier b12 school, upper tier b10 school, and then fiu. we'd be worried.
Check out our 2010 sched.
****ty Mid MWC team.
Upper PAC 10.
FIU has some great facilities. Don't count out any of the FLA schools. Look how fast USF became legit.
As far as letdown from CSU, overlook, whatever. These are the things that the 2009 team better not have. Hawk has been coach for enough years to not have any of this crap happen. It is doing just these things, playing to level of compitition etc, that results in CU being under 500 the last two years.
I think we are making a bigger deal out of this then we need to. Buffs by 31.
That may be true, in the future. In the recent past (last year), they were ranked 118 out of 119 teams by SI.
Looking at CU's performance and record on the road under hawk, I can understand some people's concern with this game.
Agreed, but I think this is truly a new year when it comes to teams of lesser talent. With an emphasis on the running game and the defensive backfield to shut down the passing game and make a team one dimensional on offense we won't have to worry about the less talented teams we will face this year. It's the talented teams we have to worry about. I concede...Buffs by 28..
We have some good db's, but our DL is going to be critical in helping them out. If cu isn't getting any pressure and that includes lb's, our db's won't look so good.
