Buffs - 27
CSU - 17
PRich is the difference maker in this one. I don't think CSU has anyone who can cover him when he's healthy (can say that about a lot of teams though). He'll help open up the offense with his homerun ability and that'll allow the run game to get going.
One of those. Two bad teams.
I figure PRich goes over 100 yards with two scores. Wood plays a great game and the defense forces two turnovers.
CU - 28, lammies - 17. I'm more optimistic than a lot of you about the season, and see four wins as very doable. I plan to put a hunny on it when I visit Vegas in a few weeks. Or maybe fifty.
I think csu is lucky to get a field goal (they have a brand new qb)CU almost scores at will with our new offense's scheme. BUFFS 31 rams 3
**** you. Don't tell me what to do.
I sure hope so. I think it's going to take us a while to get used to a new coach and system. Plus we have a brand new QB as well. I'm afraid, as it is every year, CSU will out effort us (plus the fact that after last year I am not sure if our guys know what effort is). In the past our talent was far greater so it didn't matter, but that is not the case anymore.
If we give up only 3 points in any game this season, MacIntyre is the greatest defensive coach ever.
Prediction, 41,372 in attendance. Platti raves about "near" sellout.
No they don't, their QB will be Grayson who played against us last year
Not drinking any more Kool-Aid....let's be honest, more questions/concerns on our end then theirs:
Rams - 24
Buffs - 17
Honestly it's a toss-up and should be a one possession game either way. We potentially have the best player on the field in PRich, but he hasn't played in a while. In most recent games in this series, usually one or two players make the difference (think Dizon and Wheatley in '07).
If we only score 13 we have some big issues, offense should not be a weakness on this team.
31-24 buffs late touchdown by pow pow
I've got three:
- The game will take place.
- The stadium will be half empty (or half full for the psychoanalysts).
- Those in attendance will be treated slightly better than terror suspects by the "authorities".
Winning team will score in the low 40s, losing team will score in the high 20s. No clue as to which is which.
I think our O comes to life, but even tho their Q is new, we still suck on D. I'd say 35-20 Buffs.
I will pick the Buffs. The Rams have a bad D-Line, lack receivers, and have trouble on defense overall. Their strength is their Oline and RBs.
Talent level of the Rams is not as good as the Buffs.
I predict I'll need a designated driver to get my drunk ass home.

I don't have a clue, but this is a game that CU should never lose. I'll go with 31 - 23, Buffs.
I sure hope you are right. But, it would be a dramatic shift from last year's offense. Furthermore it would be in the first game. I assume we may need some time to work out our issues on the field.
CU - 1 billionity
CSU - 0
You're underestimating Lindgren way too much. The offense is very simple (especially compared to the last) and we gain PRich back who is a top 4 talent at WR in the PAC 12.
1) we were 1-11 last year
2) new coaching staff / playbook
3) first game
4) "CSU Superbowl"
5) "Rookie" QB
1. I realize that but there was no excuse for last years performance against CSU and there won't be this year
2. In Lindgren's first season as OC at SJSU he increased their offense ppg 41.6% (scored 17 on Stanford in his first game compared to us gaining less than 100 yards against them)
-"Lindgren’s lone year coordinating the Spartan offense was a most productive one, as the school set 27 offensive records. San Jose State averaged 446.2 yards per game, including 332.7 passing, good for seventh in the nation, and a pass efficiency rating of 170.2, second best in the land. SJSU was 32nd overall in offense, with six games of 500 or more yards (seven 400-plus), and was 30th nationally in scoring as the team finished 11-2 on the year. He was a finalist for the Quarterback Coach of the Year, coordinated by footballscoop.com."
3. Embree won his first game against CSU
4. A rookie QB in an offense that plays in an offense that takes the pressure off of the QB with quick passes which allow the WR's to make plays in space
5. We have the better special teams overall with PRich returning kicks and O'Neil...meaning we should win the field position game and that's key
FightCU, more than fair to have questions about the offense. Anyone who doesn't have concern about the QB position right now is crazy. The two positives I have right now for the CSU game:
1. PRich is back. If anywhere near 100%, he should have a very good game.
2. CSU's defense is pretty suspect.
It may take time for the offense to gel though, it is sometimes unavoidable. The defense and special teams still look iffy to me, so I'm hoping the offense can start strong.
Something noone has mentioned yet-HCMM knows how to coach and has beaten CSU with-what I hope we could say-with a team with worse talent (SJSU). Last year they beat the rammies 40-20 (@SJSU) and the year before beat them 38-31 at the Fort.
He has virtually the same staff and better talent so I think a win is definitely in order. I also think he has the team believing in themselves a bit more and also appears to be a good game-day coach (a good or average game day coach would have won that game last year for the Buffs even with our convoluted offense).
Buffs win Game 1 in the HCMM era. Also convinced Central Arkansas is in the bag too. After that it gets murky but I am convinced we win at least 2 conference games this year and I believe one of them will be a major upset (I am not talking about a WSU).
