    Disappointed beyond belief that we filled the gaps with two FCS teams...what a letdown...

    I don't have a problem with this. I guess I'm old school where all schools would schedule a patsy.

    Yeah, it's not like we need to bump our strength of schedule in order to climb the AP poll, we're trying to get into a bowl. Let's just focus on that for now.

    2016 might be one of the most favorable PAC schedules I've seen.

    S 3 Colorado State Denver
    S 10 IDAHO STATE BOULDER
    S 17 at Michigan Ann Arbor
    PAC-12 HOME (5): ARIZONA STATE-OREGON STATE-UCLA-UTAH-WASH. ST.

    Not real crazy about the idea of playing CSU and Nebraska in back to back weeks in 18 and 19. Of course, by then the players really may not care much about playing Nebraska, at least as a rival game, as they won't have any personal experience with the rivalry.

    2019 is a long time to wait for payback to Fresno St.

    Nice to see a few cupcakes on the schedule.

    Nice to throw a small Colorado school (not named CSU) a bone, as well.

    Good idea to wait long enough to make sure we can. Had we played them last year would we have beaten them?

    San Jose State beat the Bulldogs...

    But seriously, how sad is it that a MWC team probably would have beaten the tar out of us?

    Cal isn't on the schedule, and all three of Oregon, USC, and Stanford are. If Cal and one of these three were swapped, then I'd agree.

    Ceiling looks like 7 wins IF we improve as significantly as we hope. It's as close to impossible to imagine more than one away win with that line up

    I wouldn't count conference wins or losses 3-4 years down the road

    The CSU-Nebraska pairing will make for an interesting two weeks on this board.

    Could be. But will there be anyone around who will even remember how to make a quality piss bomb by the time 2019 rolls around?

    I want to see CU get to playing an A-B-B schedule in the non-conference some day. I'd like to see A-B-C come back after 2016.

    These next 3 years, I'll be more than happy to schedule for bowl appearances.

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

    A = BCS ranked opponent / traditional power
    B = Any other BCS opponent or ranked non-BCS opponent (I'd include CSU here since they're a special case for CU)
    C = Lower tier non-BCS opponents or FCS

    We're looking at B-C-C or B-B-C schedules in the coming years, but then we start seeing programs like Nebraska and Michigan on the schedule again.

    I understand the logic of this, but I really don't like it. 2015 and 2017 are particularly awful. I don't want to sandbag our way to a bowl game.

    Better than not having bowl practices for recruiting while cementing a rep as a losing program with integrity.

    I just need to know that it is a means to an end and not a long-term shift in philosophy. CU needs to get back to challenging the best and being willing to play anyone any time / anywhere. But we have to get back to where we have the talent and depth for that before scheduling it. I hope we all agree (including our coaches and administrators) that if CU goes into a season ranked and we see a schedule like that, it would be embarrassing to us and to the history/traditions of the program.

    Agreed, and 2014 isn't any better either.

    I get all the arguments but I am happy we are not scheduling BCS non conference opponents yet. Let HCMM get this thing rolling again before we start acting like we are a competitive BCS program.

    This is the administration giving our coaches a chance. We need wins more than anything else right now.

    I get that, but part of the argument many on the board use against playing CSU, is the same that exists for these lower-tier schools.

    1. The game means a lot more to them than it does to us.

    2. Our fans don't care. Hard to see fans packed in to Folsom to watch Nichols St. If they do show up it will be a somewhat apathetic crowd.

    3. If the opponent wins it is an epic failure for us, but if we win it really means nothing because we were supposed to.

    4. We shouldn't be lowering our SOS to play teams from such weak conferences.

    5. Does nothing to raise our profile playing the dregs of the NCAA. Not televised and national recruits won't care.

    I have seen all of these arguments used to "burn the CSU game with fire". Is this a case of hypocrisy on the part of some Buff fans?

    W's are way more important than SOS in the near term. When you finish 7-5 and go to a bowl, nobody is grading you on style points. It also looks way better and achieves more than finishing 5-7 playing a heavy weight schedule.

    If we ever get back to being a consistent Top 25 team with the talent to make a run at a MNC, we can debate the merits of SOS.
