The doubters say it's kool-aid, that we can't have nice things.
But our starting 11 on defense is gonna be my goodness worthy, and they'll be playing for a coordinator who will throw all kinds of fun and exciting blitz packages out there. The offense may take a few weeks to get in-sync, but they have some weapons and a plan.
I have a deal in place with the mods that I will be banned for a week if we don't win by more than 10pts against CSU. I'm gonna double down on that and publicly announce that we will make a bowl game or I will be banned for 2 weeks. This site is my babe, you know how serious I am when I'm willing to risk time away.
This is why you're my favorite poster
For me, it's the discount handies in the alley behind Allbuffs global headquarters. But whatever your reason, @TDforTD is good peeps.
Thank god that's not Burrito's job anymore. I was worried about the super gonorrhea.
Check your pms.
Buffs will surprise this season. Double digit win over the Rams and an upset at the big house. Buffs defense will be top ten this season.
I suggest not only a bowl but a challenge for Pac south champs.
It's gonna be an awesome season.
The odds are good. I am traveling a lot this fall and will miss many of the games. Virtually a guarantee that this is the turn around season.
I'm trying hard not to get too excited. The Hawaii game last year almost ruined all football season for me.
And so it begins.
We are going to be a better team this year, in some ways a much better team.
We also have a brutal schedule and almost no depth.
I'd love to see us win 6 games and go to a bowl. If we do qualify for a bowl I think we will destroy whoever we play, It will be a bottom end bowl and our opponent won't be nearly as enthusiastic about it as we will. The bottom PAC12 bowl plays against an also-ran from the B12, second from the bottom gets a MWC opponent.
More realistically I think we get 4-5 wins this year. If Bohn-head hadn't scheduled us for a payday against Michigan we would be in much better shape.
I am generally in agreement with this. I think we are an edge rusher or two away form being a top defense.
Defense should be pretty good and no more Toby'd special teams should be better viewing too.
Until we win and prove otherwise:
I'm still excited for the season though, we should win 6 games and make a bowl, but I don't want to settle for that, we need to build to where we see that season as a failure.
I will stop making and drinking beer for 2 weeks if they do not make a bowl!
Stop. Just. Stop.
I will stop making daily poop movie posts when CU qualifies for a bowl.
and I will stop reading the **** that Skid puts on this site!
From the moment CU qualifies for the post season up until Beltway delivers me my bowl tickets, I'll use the commemorative screen name "Clean Undies".
And I'll buy you your favorite beverage at our bowl game. As long as you don't call me Sandra.
I'll kiss __________'s ass on the steps of Folsum if the Buffs win the PAC and go bowling.
Do we vote on this or whomever fills their name in first like so.
I call dibs
I can't help but think you're all cursing us. I'm optimistic about improvement this year but we need to luck. A good bounce, a missed assignment, blown coverage, we'll need all that and more to make a bowl game. So if you guys could all shut up and head to whatever church you feel best about. I'd appreciate it.
And Sefo to win one or two down the stretch.
He's going to have to do this for us to get to a bowl, IMO. I like our D going into the season, but very rare do they stay completely healthy, so will have to rely on the QB at some point.
If jinxing was a thing, we'd have jinxed us into a bowl game a while ago with all the self-loathing.
Can't we have one kool-aid thread? There's a ton to be excited about, but any excitement comes with the reminder that we aren't where we should be, that HCMM is coaching for his job and all this recruiting excitement might not matter, and to not get our hopes up because "we do this every year." The OL is a question mark until proven otherwise. Even a 100% Sefo isn't perfect. We are desperately hoping for a newcomer to step in at WR and make an impact and for a RB to take over. There's no depth in the secondary, or really at LB. We need Gillam and Tupou to be right. Special teams might still provide lulz. Even the biggest homer realizes all this.
But the rise is real and if you want to fight me about being excited then PM me and we can meet in Temecula.
We seem to have plenty of the other. One kool-aid thread is just what the doctor ordered for this time of the year.
I'm excited for conference play, but the first few games of the year always worry me. I love the coaching staff, but they seem to have trouble preparing kids during the off season. Hopefully with the staff change-ups that is a thing of the past.
