    Other CU 2010 Opponents
    Colorado State: 88.2 (87; 105; 90; 101; 58)
    Hawaii: 82.4 (110; 73; 72; 92; 65)
    Georgia: 8.2 (4; 9; 7; 6; 15)

    ***********************

    Conclusions:
    Over the past 5 years, the Pac 10 has slightly out-recruited the Big 12, but it's pretty even. Big 12 is a bit more top heavy, with 2 teams averaging a Top 10 class and the Pac 10 is stronger in the middle (with USC skewing toward the top but WSU skewing down just as strongly).

    For CU's 2010 schedule, we should have an overall talent advantage against 6 of our 12 opponents. Texas Tech and Missouri have slightly out-recruited us, but our veteran classes are more highly ranked (2006-08). CU should be at a talent disadvantage versus Cal, Georgia, Oklahoma and Nebraska.
