I'm certain ESPN thinks we're division III

    "Michigan hasn't been tested and has jumped to No. 4 in the rankings.

    And it doesn't appear the Wolverines will face much of a test in their third game either."

    If CU wins this game I'll never shut up about shoving it in their faces. Its insane how far we've fallen over the years.

    Yeah, do what I do.

    Ignore that ESPN exists except for when they televise a Buffs game, and even then turn it off right after.

    I mean, the odds are literally stacked in Michigans favor by almost 3 TDs. It's not just ESPN...

    I'm confident we will beat the spread too, but let's not get ahead of ourselves

    It's not like they'll give us credit if we play close or win; they'll just question any and everything about Harbaugh. Which is almost as good as respect.

    Why is anyone expecting outlets to give us love? We've been **** for a decade, and we are playing a Top 5 team on the road. Stop worrying about it.

    Can't disagree with any of these statements. But the whole "they won't face a test here either" I mean come on, we're not some POS school. We may get killed but at least have the audacity to do SOME reporting and be somewhat objective. Oh well.

    Love the fact we get no love. The players are going to eat that **** up as well. When we keep it close and maybe even have a late lead, somebody's sphincter is going to tighten up a lot and it will not be these Buffs. And once we win this ****ing game, we will have a spotlight on us that will change the dynamic of coverage and perception. **** Michigan and the media. Let's go win a ****ing game!

    Cu has beaten two bad teams. Yes they are playing better than we've seen in awhile.

    I hate to think this but, some here are going to get slapped back to reality late saturday afternoon.

    One of you is right and one wrong. This is exactly the scenario we would be in if we are a rising powerhouse. Also exactly the situation if we're pretenders to greatness who have efficiently rolled over two lousy teams.

    I'm really looking forward to an answer on Saturday, or at least some solid clues.

    I think this is exactly the kind of setup that favors the Buffs. UM players will be looking at CU that way we looked at Montana St and Sac State. Puuuurfect.

    I understand that feeling, I have those thoughts some times as well. CU may not be as good as Michigan but the lazy narrative written by ESPN is a joke. It just bothers me I guess haha.

    I hope so!

    I JUST got done telling my son that if we lose, I won't be surprised.
    But if we win, I won't be shocked.

    Make sense?

    I mean, they are top 5, so they SHOULD win. However, I think we are ready for this test and will gain much needed respect no matter
    how they perform.

    I think that next week, CU is going to be the most popular "upset pick" in the country. A huge number of talking heads will pick CU against UO "because Colorado played Michigan so close in the big house; they're a much better team than people realize."

    I'm with horax, but with a slight alteration:

    I won't be shocked if we win. I won't be surprised if we lose. I will be surprised if we get blown out.

    Losing to a top 5 team shouldn't slap anyone back to reality... Unless of course, you're one of those, "loss=failure" no matter who the opponent is kind of people.

    And I don't care about the caliber of opponent through the first two weeks. We ****ing dominated both of them in every area the sport has to offer. CU hasn't done that against CSU, a team most people here were bitching about as a complete toss up, since like the 1970s.

    I don't understand why people have to piss in the kool aid in the midst of the most fun CU football has been in over a decade.

    Past 10 years of being a CU fan probably.

    A blow out will bring the fans and the team back to earth. A close loss will be exciting for the fans but very disappointing for the team. A win and we can start to dream of a Pac-12 title.

    This is actually an AP article. ESPN just posted it in their skin.

    EDIT: Which means you'll see this crap in every newspaper and online publication in the country.

    No **** - its like these people havent seen the last 10 years of CU football - or the last 10 years of Haurbaugh's career.

    We are on the road against a top 5 team, in one of the biggest stadiums in the country, with one of the most effective coaches in the game. Of course the media think we have no shot.

    - we havent had a winning record in 10 years
    - Mich won 10 games last year

    - Mich beat 8 P5 teams last year
    - we've beaten 8 p5 teams since august of 2010

    - Mich beat 3 ranked teams last year.
    - google doesnt go that far back for us.

    There is no reason to think anyone should be giving us a shot or the time of day in this game - it makes for a hell of an opportunity but getting butt-hurt over ESPN thinking we suck when in fact we have sucked is silly.

    Last ranked win had to be WVU or Georgia way back with Hawkins, right?
