    Should win:
    CSU
    Baylor at home
    KSU at home
    Hawaii at home
    ISU at home

    50/50
    KU at KU
    Mizz at Mizz

    Low probability:
    OU in Norman (highly unlikely)
    GA (GA has loads of talent but who knows)
    TT in Boulder
    Cal at Cal
    NU at NU

    I see six or seven wins, realistic case.

    Check that. Six would me realistic. More than six would be optimistic.

    4 of 5 from the "should win"
    1 from the 50/50
    1 from the "low probability" group

    That's 6 wins.

    I'd say Mizz is low probability. They kicked us around again this year, we've shown no indication we understand how to stop them and they return Gabbert (who this time might be playing with 2 legs instead of the 1 he beat us with).

    CSU is sadly probably a 50/50 just because they put everything into it and we come into games flat. We should be able to beat them, but I'm just doubtful.

    Of the ones we should win, KSU should be better than they were this year. That one will be tougher than we'd like. Baylor will return Griffin, which makes them a dangerous team. I'll guess we mess up one of those and lose when we shouldn't.

    I'll say KU is a should win, despite Hawk's 2 road wins in 4 years, I just think it'll be a disaster there next year.

    I'll go out early and say 5 wins :cry:

    Remember, for all of Hawk's failings (and there are many), he always seems to coach the team up against Texas Tech. I wouldn't put that in the "low probability" category -- especially with it being at home.

    How I see things playing out

    • Colorado State - We win this one
    • California - Road game, We lose
    • Hawaii - Win
    • Georgia - Loss
    • Missouri - Road game, We lose
    • Baylor - Loss
    • Texas Tech - Win
    • Oklahoma - Road game, We lose
    • Kansas - Road game, We lose
    • Iowa State - Win
    • Kansas State - Loss
    • Nebraska - Road game, We lose

    4-8 is my guess.

    T-Wheat and Dizon stole that game in Lubbock for us. They're gone, brother.

    Toss Up:
    CSU
    Baylor at home
    KSU at home
    Hawaii at home
    ISU at home
    KU at KU

    ZERO probability:
    Mizz at Mizz
    OU in Norman (highly unlikely)
    GA (GA has loads of talent but who knows)
    TT in Boulder
    Cal at Cal
    NU at NU

    I think we take 3-5 of the toss-ups and that's pretty much it next year.

    THANK YOU. I've been saying this ALL along. TWheat had 3 interceptions and ripped the ball out of Crabtree's hands on one of them. He had Crabtree's TD go through his hands also (should have gone for the swat since it was in the sun). We led big and TT rallied. Dizon had a pick 6 to put it out of reach.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that remembers that. We won because we had 2 2nd rounders playing. Polumbus was also playing and he's now in the league as an UFA as well.

    Bad days when we are predicting like 4-8 at CU. Its an absolute embarrassment for a top 20 team in the history of college football to be predicting that kind of ****. Dont miss your tee time Benson, Distephano, regents, punk muther****ers.

    Luke, yup. HORRIBLE days! I tell ya, when I have to even THINK if CU beats Baylor, gag... "Why bother? Why f'n bother?!!" It's like Airport Security strip-searching li'l ol' ladies. Man, when the bluehairs start flying planes into skyscrapers, it's time to just toss the lot and let the cockroaches have their shot at the earth's surface!

    Anytime a game against Baylor is a discussed as a mere 'probability' - my my.

    Of course, when I factor in my belief that Art Briles has demonstrated more quality coaching than Hawk has, lordy...

    Briles recruited a fairly decent dual-threat QB to his U-Hoo job, then got that recruit to follow him to Baylor for a Big 12 Frosh Of Year award. This is one strong point for believing Briles' ability to recruit high-ranking recruits and use them positively and repeatedly. This is far better than Hawkins has done with the nation's #1 RB recruit.

    Fortunately, Baylor has only won 3 road games (3-53) in their history in the Big 12. Thank Mizzou for giving up that 3rd one, just this season. Surely Hawkins will not give Baylor - CANNOT give Baylor - a fourth road win. Surely. Shirley.

    I know Art, I played against his teams at Stephenville in hs. Make no mistake, that guy could coach in alot of places. He knows his ****.

    Dizon had Harrell tied up in knots all game long. He'd fake like he was blitzing and then drop back, except when he really was coming. Basically took away the underneath passing game BY HIMSELF. Hypolite and Nicolas manhandled their interior. The only running play in Leach's playbook is that little middle draw. Never got by big George. T-Wheat just had to wait for the inevitable. Harrell trying to make something happen and forcing deep throws.

    Great, awesome, UNBELIEVABLE game by those 3. Hugh had a decent game, as well.

    So what you are saying is that we won our last road game because of the remnants of a burnt down structure?

    Why on earth would anybody predict a CU victory over Colorado State next season?

    Hawaii and Baylor are the only games that look like we have a halfway decent shot at winning. Everything else is a toss up or no-hoper.

    Woah, temper your high expectations, I wouldn't go that far. Griffin is an animal. All he needs to do is watch Reesing/Daniel tape on us and he could have a field day.

    i say they win 6 games next year and sneak into the weedwhacker bowl, which they will lose to some really crappy non-bcs team for a brilliant 6-7 finish.

    why, you ask?

    because the football gods have a sick sense of humor... and, since making a bowl game of any variety is the new goal of the program, the powers-that-be will be pleased that they can justify keeping this staff and not pay the then-2mm buyout after next year.

    maybe bohn is a sleeper agent, planted by ku so that they can somehow become the team other than the fuskers who controls the north? i kid.

    Somewhat off topic, but we play at Hawaii in 2011, so we could schedule a 13th game (and another home game) the week before we play at Baylor, but we haven't yet. Since this program is supposedly hurting for cash so badly, why not bring in a 1AA school that weekend? Or a San Jose State or someone similar against whom we'll have an approximately 70% chance of winning?

    If we lose that game those Buffs go on to be the worst Buffs team ever (losing consecutively, that is). The Senior leadership on that team led by Big Bad Thad helped lead us to an ass whopping. We almost went the entire game without punting. Crosby had a 68 yard FG attempt in that game and had the distance, but not the accuracy. I remember that game. It wasn't on TV yet the game went on for nearly 4 hours. ****ing hate TT O.

    why would anybody predict a Colorado State victory over CU?? Both teams were 3-9. CU has a lot of motivation, and will still have more talent. I honestly don't see how anybody can claim the game is a lock either way.... :huh:

    ^^^This^^^

    The Buffs are catching UGA in a down year. But UGA is catching CU in a down decade. The B12 competition has left CU in the dust, until proven otherwise.
