we have to EARN respect
until the BUFFS start winning - it is what it is!! sometimes this will help squeak out a victory over a team overlooking us
Then take those odds and put some $$$ down.
It's very easy to see why everyone will have us dead last.
I don't think we'll be dead last, but it wouldn't be a big shocker. Gotta earn the respect!
We did not finish last in 2011 (or ever in the Big XII or Big 8 for that matter) and we will not this year. But I agree, we will not get respect until it is earned back. We have work to do and we need improvement this year to start getting it back.
Good. Let's surprise people this year.
I think the Buffs will surprise some people this year, and next year will open some eyes.
Not saying we were world beaters, but we had some decent talent that went UFA and some that even got drafted. Who gets drafted this year? Talent-wise we are very unproven.
Polk, Major, Rippy, Pericak and Kasa should all get looks. Given the speed each have for their positions, they could all test well enough to get drafted. Lot of "ifs", but I think you're shorting it a bit because the talent is on the defense this year and that doesn't stand out like QB-RB-WR like we had last year (plus a couple in-state OLs).
I think Pericak would make a good 3-4 DE in the NFL
It makes sense for us to be picked last, but it is broken out by North/South. Those are the odds we win the South. If WSU or OSU were in our spot having to face up against USC, I'd bet (do you see what I just did here?) their odds would be about +1500 as well.
