    Athlon made a comment about two conference upsets getting us into a bowl-Do teams using the Hawaii exemption to play 13 need to only win 6 now because there are so many bowls? Or is that a typo.....

    If all the bowl slots aren't filled, then a team that wins 6 on a 13-game schedule gets 1st preference to fill the open spot. At least that's how I understand it.

    I think the Wazzou game would not be an upset by then. Maybe that is also a factor in the piece.

    Wazzou is ranked below us by many other than our "own fans". We are expected to pretty much go winless even though we played so many close games in conference.

    Phil Steele is a pretty big fan of the Buffs in 2015. Just have the crazy hard schedule.

    Does he still mention that he was right in his prediction for the 2001 Buffs team?

    Amazingly no. At least not in the Phil's Forecast section where it has always been. It is still in his most accurate magazine section.

    We are so shell shocked by the piling of loses over the years, the kool aid has run dry and we're in the we won't believe it until we see it stage.
