    Last year it was 49.5. This year we cover and give them a game, for about a half.

    I expected it to be higher than that.

    I expected it higher. Maybe because it is a home game? or just out of sympathy? oregon beats CU by 45+ points pulling away with back-ups in. CU is not even close. I really don't see a kid on the Buffs roster that would start at oregon.
    Sniffing a shut out here fellas.

    38 is about right in Folsom. Oregon was up 38-0 with 12 minutes left in the first half against Cal, but then backed off and won only 55-16.

    They're not going to get much play on CU's side if they set the line Oregon -42.5

    I don't bet against the Buffs, but that would be tempting.

    If Marcus Mariota scores a td while texting, it is going to be so humiliating.

    Hey! That's something!

    Wait. That means some nobody is going to run all over us.

    I'd rather it be a national name.

    -38.5 should be pretty close to what the Broncos open at when they play the Jaguars. I think CU sneaks under the spread against Oregon. The Jaguars not so much.

    The line is opening at 28 points for that game.

    that is the sad part. some freshman no name walk on will set records in touchdowns in a game, most touchdowns by a freshman, most yards in first start, most passing completions for touchdowns by a running back, longest touchdown run by freshman. BTW he will probably earn a Pac12 player of the week..

    That's kinda optimistic. Unless you're better than Cal or Tennessee.

    Definitely not better than either of those programs. But hey, at least we aren't paying our players like Oregon. Got that going for us, which is nice.

    The weather might play a part. Maybe.

    Looking for a better effort and fewer mistakes at home. Will go against the masses and take the points. Should be a bit less rusty this week. I like the emergence of Running game late in last weeks game. Will be interesting as little pressure on us vs Goliath.

    Does Helfrich take it easy on the buffs because he coached here. The CSU @Alabama game was 30+ but that was easy money because you knew Saban would take it easy on McElwain. Does Helfrich do the same? I think he does. +38.5 is good.

    Looking at the schedules, I think we'll see more than 2 BCS teams go undefeated this year. I think it's very much in Oregon's interest to run up the score every chance they get.

    Yeah wouldn't be too sure about Cal. According to Sagarin they are ranked three spots higher than us.

    Saban took it easy on his little buddy, maybe Helfrich cuts us a break (or the UO slush fund has money on the Buffs).

    Helfrich did us no favors while he was here, I can't imagine he plans to do any now. He probably hates this place since it nearly killed his career.

    NO - first off scott frost is the OC and he hates CU + if they run the score up and bama struggles = more 1st place votes.

    If Oregon goes undefeated they'll have no issues being in the title game, I really don't think they need to run the score up. The Pac12 is seen as the 2nd best conference for the most part this year behind the SEC (I actually think the top of the Pac 12>top of the SEC this year). Now if we faced Oregon after they played Stanford and lost then I'd think they would just obliterate everyone by 50+

    I have no reason to believe that can't name the score against us, as they do against most teams they play.

    AaronJFentress: De'Anthony Thomas out for this week at Colorado. Not shocking.


    I guess the line will go down 1 point then:rofl:
