    According to Phil Steele we are. The big question is can we win without experience?

    I'm somewhat baffled by this. We played a ****load of freshman and sophomores last year due to injury, need, talent etc. Where did that record number of freshman and sophomores that played last year go? Personally, I think we have an underrated amount of returning experience.

    Requires some assumptions in terms of who will be starting and who will be the back-ups but overall it looks pretty accurate. We have very few upper class starters and almost no upper class depth. We did play a lot of Fr. last year, they are now sophmores. We also played a lot of fr. and soph at a limited number of positons going through multiple players.

    Bottom line is thanks to keeping Hawk an extra year we are forced to play a bunch of very young guys because there isn't much left on the roster from his last classes that is contributing.

    Winning without experience is possible and lots of teams can find ways to win, but it all comes down to the talent. If the new guys step up and are talented then Colorado should have a good chance of winning some games while sneaking up on a few teams. The Pac-10 never followed expectations so a team like Colorado that is picked to finish last could easily finish in the middle of the Pac-12.
