    Saw a lot of speculation in the Brown Interview thread, so I'm just curious to see what the overall temperature of the board is.

    i went with 6. pipe dream, maybe. more important (well, not really) is that this team just shows that they can play solid football week in/out, consistant improvment from week to week and some freaking coaching. i expect some signifigant growing pains this year but, if they are playing signifigantly better ball at the end of the season than in week one, we might have something to hang our hats on. ugghhhh....

    The last coaching staff found a way to take what should have been an 8-4 (BU, TT, & KU should have been wins) football team, and turn them into a 4-8 team (I am assuming that had they stayed to coach the final 3 games they would have gone 1-2).

    Had CU ended with an 8-5 or 9-4 record most people would be talking about bowl game elidgable at a minimum. Talent is important, but what you do with the talent is just as important. Coaching makes a huge difference, and we will see a team out on the field.

    Seven wins gets us started in the 12-PAC

    Only upset I could realistically see is against USC. Oregon is too fast for CU, Stanford is on the road and has Luck but there are serious question about the O line for next season. OSU, while down, will still be OSU.

    agreed. The only hope against Oregon is that they wear themselves out at altitude. Maybe our defense will be ready for stanford since they practice against a pro system every day. Doubtful though. And the only way we beat OSU is if they beat Miami the week before and overlook us as they head to conference play.

    Brutal schedule, new coaches, brand new defensive backfield, atrocious special teams = five wins IMO. I wish I could be more optimistic. I see possible wins against Hawaii, CSU, UA, WSU and UCLA. Of those, only WSU is even close to a sure thing.

    The Hawaii game is HUGE. A swing game of epic proportions in my eyes. Win that one and we are traveling to tOSU with a 3-0 record and a very confident team after a blowout victory against the lambs. Lose the Hawaii game and everything suddenly becomes a lot more difficult. Beating Hawaii would also do wonders for our road game confidence later on in the season.

    Basically, if we beat Hawaii I see us being able to win at least 6 games. Lose to Hawaii and I see us winning 4 at most.

    Not saying we'll beat everybody but I am not sure if we have to be so down on our team. A coaching staff with half a brain and a semblance of a scheme would have had a winning season last year. Yes, questions remain on the secondary and ST but those are only two variables in the equation. Our lines are more mature, depth is pretty decent (at least for OL). P-Rich will only get better and Clemons will be serviceable. Hansen will need to manage the game better and speedy wont disappoint.

    Part of the reason Hawkins sucked in the beginning was the fact that he ran out all the OL/DL guys, and then just played catch up rest of the way. Also, he was a moron.

    7. Don't know how or who, but the answer is definitely 7 (or some other number).

    o/u at 5.

    reading this board we are the greatest team ever with the ghost of Coach Mac spiriting us to the MNC. however, we did hire a coach without a BCS win, that no one else wanted, and two coordinators who have also never won a game between them. but apparently, we are great now and bleed black and gold, every one else sucks and spring and allbuffs.com, hooray.

    :lol:

    O/U at 5 is not bad. I think it is reasonable to think we can match last year's win total. The question remains whether we can close out close games that we lost last year (Baylor, Tech, Kansas). Obviously winning on the road is still a big question as well.

    I'm not sure why so many people here have us losing to Cal. And yes, I saw the game last season.

    Fact is that Cal lost a lot this past season on both sides of the ball. Their QB situation is a mess right now and our kids are going to be looking for revenge in a big way. This is almost one of my "lock W" games. I just really don't see us losing to Cal.
