    you are insane. Maybe the middle third of the NCAA( 60-80 range), but not the pac-12.

    Time to up your dosage.

    No better than 9th...new system, new coaches, unproven/suspect talent and we're in (I'm guessing) the #1 offensive conference in the FBS.

    Offensive coordinator will not be learning on the job. Average WR group, which represents an improvement.

    We can definitely be in the middle third of QB sneaks on first and 10. I'm hoping we tie for first with zero in that category actually.

    It is the offseason and you have nothing better to do other than to hope for the impossible?

    It all depends on the Quarterback. If QB play is what it was last year then no way. If someone can step up and be at least average then we have a shot.

    Second item is - can Paul Richardson find his previous form? CU lacks any real difference makers on offense so if PRich is not back we could be in trouble.

    Where do the offensive units rank in the conference?

    Offensive Line - I would guess 8th or lower.
    Tight Ends - 10th.
    Receivers - 9th
    Running Backs - 6th if Powell is back.
    Quarterback - 12th until we see something different.

    I have convinced myself that you are on something illegal.

    You would think with better direction on what we want to do offensively and much more talent at Wide Receiver we should be able to finish at least 8 out of 12. But, then I can't think of 4 teams with a worse offense than us. In order to pass 4 other PAC 12 offenses we would definitely need drastically improved QB play, but I think that might be optimistic.

    It's been a looong time since we've had either of those conditions. I will hold off on proclaiming the latter till August though. Our success rate with WR's making it to campus and/or staying on campus over the last 8 years has to be 20%, probably less.

    Very true.

    Obviously as others have mentioned, it all comes down to the QB. Hoping Dillon is the answer.

    How about another perspective. Whose offense will be worse than ours?
