    I'm suprised that some folks see this as a automatic W. I think Washington St. is going to be respectable this year. They have a good QB in Tuel, a decent WR squad. If they could make it work on the OL, they could give CU a decent game. I'm just happy this game is at Folsom.

    Then again I thought Hawkins was a good coach so what do I know?! :thumbsup::lol::cry:

    They've won FIVE games in THREE years and TWO were against FCS teams. They ****ing suck.

    If we can't win that one at home then I don't think we will beat anyone. Maybe CSewe.

    With our situation in the secondary, I'm worried.

    Here's for comparisons with CSWho:

    Passing - 60th - 221.8 YPG
    Rushing - 103rd - 113.0 YPG
    Points For - 114th - 16.5 PPG
    Points Against - 104th - 34.7 PPG

    They're not much better and this is the CSU team that failed to even get into the CU redzone against a Hawkins coached team. WSU gave up 51 SACKS last year, yeah 51! We beat Hawaii, Georgia, ISU, and KSU at home last year and should have beat Tech and Baylor. Are you trying to say that WSU, a team who has won FIVE games in THREE years is better than these teams?

    As I've said before, they're 5-32 over the past 3 years with 2 of those wins against FCS. You don't just pull a 6 win season out of your ass after being that bad. Their talent level and depth are far below ours with the exception of Tuel, and that says something. If we lose to the Cougs at home, something is drastically wrong. Drastic improvement for them would be a 3 win season, they've been that bad.

    Boom goes the dynamite!

    As bad as things have been under Hawkins, it seems like WSU has been worse at the same time...I honestly am having a hard time believing that WSU comes into Boulder and beats us.

    And Vamos, you talk about Tuel throwing under 3,000 yards...believe it or not, Cody Hawkins did throw for just over 3,000 yards one season when he was the starter.

    They open with Idaho State and that is a team UNC up in Greeley has DOMINATED since 2008. If WSU squeaks by that team, there's no way WSU wins another game this season. WSU has five road games in the Pac-12...Wulff is definetly coaching his last season and only the most optimistic hardcore Cougar fans believe they will have a winning season. Given how bad CU has been under Hawkins, I don't think WSU was any better as well.

    And if we lose to WSU, I will start counting down towards basketball season.

    I'm aware of their past. This thread is not about their season, it's about the game on Oct 1st. CU cannot afford to be overconfident in any game. Especially this one.

    KU was a really bad team last year, and yet they still managed to kick our asses. I like to think their talent level and depth was far below ours. We beat Georgia last year right? My point is anything can happen.

    Agree, Karstetter is a very good WR and the younger Marques Wilson a budding star.

    I think the last two years were some young teams, they should be better. But defense looks to have some youth to work through.

    By the same logic judging the Buffs by the last few years, yes you would expect Wazzou to stink, but so will the Buffs. So it could be a wash.

    KU won because Hawkins was a ****ing ****waffle disguised as a coach. We could have kneeled the ball every down and still won. We should have won that game 45-17 had it not been for that ****.

    Then what makes you so confident in WSU this year? A team like that doesn't go from two wins to six and winning on the road. Did you watch one of their games last year? It was painful to watch and they got kicked by SMU.

    agreed with valdez. CU has no right to pencil in a win for ANY GAME. WSU is looking at this game as their best chance for a BCS win this season. Gotta be ready for a dog fight every week.

    Wazzu is the worst BCS team the last 3 years. CU has a winning record at home the last 3 years. Saying Wazzu is gonna beat CU is like saying CU is gonna beat Oregon.

    All I'm saying is anything can happen on Saturday. I'm not saying this is a L for CU. I'm just saying we shouldn't be overconfident. Calm down little guy.

    I don't think we need to worry about our guys being overconfident. If anything I wish they had some MORE confidence and swagger.

    Oh and us fans can be as confident as we want.

    Of course CU can't take anyone for granted. The Cougs will be better on both sides of the ball, especially on offense. They'll put up their points, but they're going to give up a ****load. There's a lot of ground to make up on D being -150 in ypg and allowing 35ppg.

    That comes with winning. Until they win they have nothing to be confident about. I'm sick of the CU Rap songs on YouTube while we're getting crucified on Saturdays. :lol:

    We shouldnt be over confident against anybody. That said, the guys should be very confident in this game. We have the better squad imo and it is a home game. Im not saying it's an automatic mark it down W, but it damn well should be. Wazzu is horrible. We shouldnt only win that game but by alot.

    And look, there's 120 division one football teams. In terms of rushing, their is THREE teams worse than WSU. In terms of points for, their is sixteen teams that are worse. In terms of points against, their is TEN teams worse than WSU. CU is not one of them. Our guys won't be over confident and we won't lose this game. We have one of the better home/road splits in the country and have beaten much, much better teams at home than the worst BCS team in the country.
