    I know it's hard to imagine that given how we have only had one season the past six years with 6 wins, but I don't think it's a pipe dream. If (i know the dreaded IF word) we get improved QB play from Wood and the secondary is improved our schedule sets up nice early. Not saying we will, just saying a decent chance (rep to the first dumb and dumber "saying theres a chance" reference haha).

    CSU: An expected win as it always should be

    Sac St: Better be a damn win

    @ Fresno St: road monkey off our backs and they are not the team from the early 00's

    @ Wash st: They did beat us last year in our house, but they are still Wazzu, winnable game

    UCLA. Ok we all know the crushed us last year and they are loaded with talent, but they are breaking in a new coach. Cal crushed us in '10 and then we almost won the rematch game in Boulder last year missing in OT. I see this UCLA game as being similar to that with a good possiblity at winning at home.

    Arizona state. This team is my pick to be the worst in the south in '12. Not impressed with their new hire, very winnable game.

    And then theres the trip to SC and Eugene, where I expect us to get throttled much worse than last year.from both teams.

    I know, I know, probably a pipe dream and I'm smoking some good ****!:thumbsup::lol:

    Isn't it a bit early to be drinking that much kool-aid?

    even if Wood ends up being a great QB I still think we are going to see a lot of growing pains-

    Seriously though, look at the first half of the schedule, it's not that bad. I bet 95% of BCS teams could pull off that stretch unbeaten, we might be in the 5% though.

    Were you one of the guys predicting 4-0 last year? That's more likely this year, but 6-0 is a stretch.

    Thats probably more realistic, and FYI, I am NOT predicting 6-0 to start '12, just for the record.

    We need a good start. While 6-0 is a bit ambitious, I could see 4-2 as a reasonable expectation. That Wazzu game is going to be big test for a young secondary.

    My expectation for the first six games is 5 - 1. I'm not drinking the 'aid, I'm just upping my expectations for this staff and the team. Expect to Win !

    not until I see an OL that can block and a QB that can throw and an LB corp that includes a healthy rippy and Major. I KNOW Rippy isn't gonna be 100% unless he goes against all recent history for knee injuries at CU.

    Edit: Oh, and not until our DL actually gets on campus :lol:

    5 of the 6 games will be against coaches in their first year at the helm. Anything short of a winning record by game day at USC would be disappointing.

    Our first 3 conference games are against teams breaking in new coaches. We have to win at least 1 of those after our 3-0 start in OOC.

    Stop being so brutally honest when looking at the team. Just take a little sip... c'mon, do it. Just one sip.

    No. My sponsor KA* (rugged) would kill me if I fell off the wagon.

    to be fair, we never had a 2 game stretch last year that looked as good as this 6 game stretch
