    I know it may be wishful thinking and biased, but I think the Buffs get bowl eligible with the favorable schedule, and finally a few lucky breaks. Wins against CSU, Sac State, Fresno State, ASU, Zona, and UCLA.

    I think six, combination of a much weaker OOC schedule and Embree starting to get rid of the Hawkins "How are we going to lose" attitude gets us enough wins to go to a minor bowl game.

    We pull seven by winning one we shouldn't.

    Months ago I guessed 6 and a bowl. But 2 things changed my opinion since then. #1: PRich; #2: I was convinced Wood would emerge as a big-time QB out of Spring. So I went with 5

    I would love to hear from the 6 and more win folks what games they consider to be swing games and how many of them the Buffs win. I only see 3 games that I would be disappointed if we lost (non-Conf slate). Then we move into swing games and a few games where a Buff win would be a monumental upset.

    Winning more than 5 means winning more than half of the swing games and that goes against the law of averages. Are folks setting themselves up for disappointment?

    We've got a lot of games on our schedule against teams that are completely changing systems with new coaching staffs. I think that improves the odds of us pulling more upsets than you'd usually see.

    5 wins

    I want to say we win more, but I just don't have a good feeling about this season.

    I went with 6 because I just can't predict a losing season. I don't care how bad we are, I can't actually predict such a thing.

    5 if things go well.
    6 if things go really well.
    7 if CU just gets flat out lucky.

    so, 5.

    This is a completely unscientific out of my ass use of percentages to represent my expectations for CU's chances of victory.

    CSU - 85% New Coach. Talent advantage.
    Sac State - 98% Talent advantage
    @ Fresno - 60% BCS v nonBCS talent advantage.
    @ WSU - 49% New Coach/System
    UCLA - 51% New Coach. Folsom magic. Embree revenge factor
    ASU - 51% New Coach. Folsom magic.
    @USC - 4% Would have to catch them sleeping
    @Oregon - 5% Because USC > O
    Stanford - 10% Folsom magic = half of optimism
    @Arizona - 49% CU tired of losing. New Coach
    UDub - 50% Folsom magic. Inexperienced players now experienced
    Utes - 60% Folsom magic. Bowl eligibility on line.

    43% = 5.2 wins.
