    Why are we playing Toledo in Fresno? Can't we find a closer location to both schools?

    Daunting. I hope we add some games in some key recruiting areas (Texas) for those TBA spots. Also, in the future, can we please schedule SDSU or SJSU and not Fresno?

    The game was supposed to be in Toledo but they wanted to give us a chance by moving the game to a neutral location. :huh:

    Now that we're in the Pac-12, we no longer need the Fresno game to lock down Cali recruits. We should kill it as a hone-and-home game, it does nothing for us, and pick up home-and-home games in (1) locales that lock down recruiting (e.g., SMU, Northwestern, Purdue, Rutgers, Maryland, Pitt), or (2) "feature" games that will get us a name opponent who'll play a game in Boulder, and maybe national TV too (e.g., Wisconsin, BYU, LSU, Michigan State, VaTech). Sprinkle in Wyoming or New Mexico State or UTEP for a Folsom-only contest when needed, and we'd have a nice schedule.

    How about we just schedule low level WAC/MWC teams in the OOC to pad the win total so we can get back to winning 8-10 games a year. No more of this tough OOC scheduling. It doesn't work and it only leads to losses most of the time.

    I thought the reason we backed out of LSU was because we got an extra home game?

    We do not need to resort to complete chicken **** scheduling. There can be a balance.

    Agreed and those low level games don't get great tv. You lose on the exposure end.

    I agree to an extent. These tough schedules haven't benefitted us much the last 5 years though. Recruits don't care about the schedule they just look at the win total. Until were winning 8-10 games a year we need to schedule cupcakes then once were on par recruiting with top 25 teams thn we can schedule tougher teams.

    I'd like to see us do home/homes with Northwestern and Rutgers. Lots of alumni in Chicago and New York. Would be a great chance to connect while also getting in front of some recruits in states where they are likely to go to college away from home. My other big targets are Houston and SMU.

    If Houston or SMU (or Rice, N.Texas, TCU, UT San Antonio, or UT or against Notre Dame at JerryWorld), please don't schedule that away game during in early September, when temps hover around 100.

    The important thing, IMO, is that we make sure to get the TBA games in odd years at home. We need six true home games every year, plus the CSU game. Odd years have us playing only four conference home games.

    I thought Bohn agreeing to the CSU series in Denver was to ensure we got 7 "home" games a year? Or did that change with the move to the pac 12?

    On that note, I wouldn't mind playing AF, they don't have the big brother little brother thing. Nice easy road trip for either school.

    That was the game changer and going to the pac this year instead of the initially planned 2012 threw this year off.

    You're right. The tough schedules did not do anything to benefit us during the Hawkins years, but it sure as **** helped us out during the previous 15 years. Do you think we would have sniffed the national championship if we hadn't played 4 ranked opponents in our non-conference schedule? Part of the reason the 94-95 season was so great was that non-conference stretch of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Texas. With the way scheduling actually works, and the amount of lead time that you have to have to make those schedules work with other schools, you simply cannot say 'schedule cupcakes until we're good again' because you can't just add a Texas or Florida to your schedule at the last minute because you're better now under normal circumstances. If you don't schedule tough non-con opponents and you get good, you could miss your window for a MNC game berth, particularly if your conference has a down year (frankly more likely in the Pac-12 than it was in the Big 8 or Big XII). Yes, we were able to add a last minute game against Ohio State for this year, but that type of situation presents itself rarely.

    Don't like that Fresno State game one bit, especially on the road. I traditionally love the tough OOC schedules, but it needs to be lightened up while we rebuild. Unfortunately the CSU game isn't going anywhere for the next decade, so another W game needs to be added (the Idaho's, New Mexico's of the world) and home/home against BCS conference competition...Minnesota, Virginia, whomever.

    I think CU vs AF would be an exciting series. We would probably get our butts kicked but it would for sure be more entertaining then the crappy atmosphere at Mile High against the lambs.

    I think some are getting a little too worried about Fresno State. If we can't handle that program we are in some deep ****. Just saying......

    This is actually may be a reality real soon. I have heard it would be a 2 for 1.

    i'd look at making TBA home-homes with SMU, Houston or Rice. or: possibly an east coast junket (with a return) to Syracuse, UCONN, Pitt, possibly a UCF or South Florida. i'd stay away from the great lakes midwest/Chicago area for a while after the Toledo debacle. those Chicagoland Buff alums are probably seeing that as a once bitten, twice shy kind of deal....prioritizing Texas (recruiting) and energizing the sizable east coast CU fan base....we were well repped at the NIT Final Four, no?

    a lot of east coasters made the 6 year trip to Boulder in the Mac era....they'd like to get on the JE/EB bandwagon in person i'd guess.

    edit: pabuff has said exactly my thoughts on the schedule. including regional home dates....maybe even Texas Tech.

    They might not have the same team they did in '01 when they beat CU in Folsom, but neither do we. They've still been to 4 straight bowl games and are still reasonably dangerous - not the type of team a rebuilding CU squad would necessarily beat on the road...

    To recap the 1990 season:


    Colorado started the 1990 season ranked #5 in the polls. Miami, Notre Dame, Auburn, and Florida State were all ranked ahead of CU. This was an unusual poll for Colorado. Colorado played Tennessee on August 26, 1990. The first polls were not released until September 4, 1990. So by the time of that first poll, Colorado had already played (and tied) one game.

    Games of September 1, 1990: Colorado was actually "off" this week, because they had played Tennessee to a 31-31 a week prior. By the time the polls came out after the first full week of games, even though the Buffs did not play at all, they fell to #6 in the polls.

    Games of September 8, 1990: Colorado beat Stanford 17-14 on a late CU touchdown. The pollsters remained unimpressed - and when the polls were released the following Tuesday, Colorado had fallen to #9.

    Games of September 15, 1990: Colorado lost to Illinois 23-22. The next poll dropped the Buffs all the way to #20.

    Games of September 22, 1990: #20 Colorado beat #22 Texas 29-22. However, when the polls were released a few days later, the Buffs were still ranked #20. The top of the polls after the week of September 22, 1990 were Notre Dame, Florida State, Auburn, BYU, and Tennessee. Virginia was ranked #7.

    Games of September 29, 1990: #20 Colorado beat #12 Washington 20-14. Auburn and Tennessee tied. The next week, the top five teams in the polls were Notre Dame, Florida State, Michigan, Virginia, and Auburn. Colorado had moved up to #12.

    Games of October 6, 1990: #12 Colorado beat Mizzou 33-31. This was when college football went nuts. #1 Notre Dame lost to Stanford. #2 Florida State lost to #9 Miami. Michigan became the new #1 in the polls the following week. After the 5th down fiasco, the polls dropped the Buffs down two spots to #14.

    Games of October 13, 1990: #14 Colorado beat Iowa State 28-12. #1 Michigan lost to Michigan State. Oklahoma - which had moved up to #4 in the poll the week before, lost to Texas in the Cotton Bowl. The top five in the next poll was #1 Virginia, #2 Miami, #3 Tennessee, #4 Nebraska, #5 Auburn.

    Games of October 20, 1990: Colorado beat Kansas 42-10. This week, 10 of the top 25 lost. #2 Miami lost to #6 Notre Dame. #3 Tennessee lost to Alabama. #7 Florida State lost to #5 Auburn. The next poll was #1 Virginia, #2 Auburn, #3 Notre dame, #4 Nebraska, #5 Auburn.

    Games of October 27, 1990: Colorado beat Oklahoma 32-23. #2 Auburn barely beat Mississippi State. The next poll was #1 Virginia, #2 Notre Dame, #3 Nebraska, #4 Auburn, #5 Illinois.

    Games of November 3, 1990: #9 Colorado beat #3 Nebraska 27-12. #1 Virginia lost to #16 Georgia Tech. #4 Auburn was routed by #15 Florida. The rankings at the end of the 1st week of November were #1 Notre Dame, #2 Washington, #3 Houston, and #4 Colorado.

    Games of November 10, 1990: #4 Colorado beat Oklahoma State 41-22. #1 Notre Dame beat Tennesse, and was rewarded with an invitation to the 1991 Orange Bowl game. #2 Washington fell to UCLA, and #3 Houston lost to Texas. The polls the next week read #1 Notre Dame, #2 Colorado.

    Games of November 17, 1990: #2 Colorado beat Kansas State 64-3. #1 Notre Dame lost to Penn State. Colorado moved up to #1 in the next poll - their first time on top of the polls all year. The top five read #1 Colorado, #2 Miami, #3 Georgia Tech, #4 BYU, #5 Florida.

    Games of November 23, 1990: #1 Colorado did not play. Their season was over. #2 Miami did play - they throttled Syracuse 33-7. #3 Georgia Tech was off. The pollsters did a peculiar thing - and moved Georgia Tech, which did not play, up to #2, over Miami, which beat the snot out of Syracuse. (Not the only time the pollsters were peculiar that season)

    Games of December 1, 1990: #1 Colorado did not play. #2 Georgia Tech beat Georgia. #3 Miami barely beat San Diego State.

    Bowl games: Because of conference affiliations, there was no way for the top teams to play one another. #1 Colorado was to play in the Orange Bowl. #2 Georgia Tech, as ACC champion, was to play in the Citrus Bowl. Miami was an independent school at that time, and could have gone to play Colorado which would have given the bowl a #1 v. #3 matchup - but the Orange Bowl had extended an invitation to Notre Dame before Notre Dame lost their game to Penn State way back on November 17. #3 Miami therefore went the Cotton Bowl.
