    @ KU: W I really think we win this and we SHOULD because we are better than them.

    KSU: W, I might jump off a bridge if we lose to this team again.

    @ Mizzou: L, I am afraid of this game, it will be worse than Texas, probably like last years Mizzou game.

    @ Texas A&M W, probably our easiest game. I think a big ass whoopin in their house is in order, easy W.

    Iowa St: W Home team has won the last four, and that trend continues, although I think it will be closer than most think.

    Oklahoma St. L. They have a scarry offense, this one could get ugly.

    @ Nebraska W. We are about the same level as Nebraska, but Hawk will get them up. I think we win in Lincoln this year.

    This is all honest thinking, and there will probably be one we lose that we should win, but we could get an upset of KU (if you want to call it an upset) or Okie St to replace it.

    I see an excellent chance to win 7-8 games this year still.

    at ku:

    toss-up. they are good on their homefield. CU will need to rally back from this week and the ol will need to really improve its play.

    ksu:

    CU should win. they aren't that good and it is at folsom.

    at mizzery:

    ouch.

    at atm:

    they are pretty weak, but CU hasn't done that well on the road. i'd put CU as a slight favorite.

    isu:

    CU will win this one.

    osu:

    they are better than expected. but it is at folsom. i'd put osu as a slight favorite.

    at fuskers:

    always a tough game at stinkoln for the Buffs... i'd rate it a toss-up right now.

    bottom line:

    i think CU beats ksu and isu almost for sure and mizzery looks virtually unwinnable (at least right now). so, we just need them to find one more win from among the ku, atm, osu, and fusker games.

    if CU beats ku, i'll be feeling relatively confident (absent even more injuries) that CU will be bowl eligible.

    Kansas is a 14 point favorite in opening lines.

    Seriously??? You don't already??? I pegged you as a guy with a real gambling problem.

    I'd take CU on this one, and I haven't bet on college football since I put 100 preseason bucks on CU to win the Big XII in 2001.

    I say we beat the gayhawks, kjsu, ISU, and aTm, which puts at 7-5, and add in a very possible split with OSU and knu and we could still end up with 8 wins. Not at all unreasonable. In all likelihood we will lose one we shouldn't and win at least one we shouldn't, so I agree with Rippin' that 7-8 wins is where we'll end up.

    Kansas - Loss. Out of curiosity, what reasons do people have for picking CU in this game? We really don't look like that good of a team. I think Reesing and Kansas score 2-3 early TD's and then our defense buckles down, but the offense struggles to move the ball and we never quite catch up, losing by about 10 points. Could see a 27-17 type game here.

    Kansas State - Wash. Their offense is better than ours, significantly, but our defense is significantly better than theirs. I think they might be a little better than the buffs but we get them at home.

    @ Missouri - Blowout loss. Daniel and Maclin light us up for 400-500+ yards of offense. Our defense is not equipped to stop this team. It will be ugly, unfortunately.

    @ A&M - Win. They have superior athletes but a new coach and have looked lost all year.

    Iowa State - Win. We should be better than ISU, but they always seem to give us trouble.

    Oklahoma State - Blowout loss. They will score alot. We won't.

    Nebraska - Wash. Neither team has really looked very good this year. High scoring game. The game being in Lincoln probably favors Nebraska this year.

    Pessimistic? Maybe. The only game for sure CU will be favored in is at home against ISU. A&M sucks, but we haven't exactly looked stellar and we will be playing on the road in Texas. Kansas State isn't very good but they aren't horrible. Nebraska will be evenly matched but the game will be in Lincoln and they will want revenge for last year. Also, their defense is improved from last year and they won't give up 61 points. They will be favored by a TD in this game.

    Our offense really is pretty dismal right now and unless we see some significant improvement we won't be putting up many points this year.

    Game-to-game momentum is over-rated. Just because we looked bad last night means that we'll play like like **** against the gayhawks? :confused: And KU is no Texas, that I'm sure of.

    Anything between Texas and Eastern Washington probably has a good chance of beating us. Especially on the road.

    If we lose by over 14 at Kansas I say we win two or less games. If we win against Kansas, I say we beat Kansas St, aTm, Iowa St, and possibly Nebraska

    Until CU proves that they can play good on the road, I can't put a W next to any of their road games.

    They way they keep making penalties, TO's & very bad special teams. We can't count on any game winning 40 yard field goals.

    I don't know if we have 3 wins left.

    @ KU: L
    KSU: W
    @ MO: L
    @ A&M: W (close call - they're looking ahead to Texas, the best rivalry in all CFB, whether you know it or not)
    ISU: W
    OSU: L
    @ NU: L probably, but close.


    6-6 again, unless we upset Nebraska. How sweet would it be to leave Lincoln 7-5 after this gauntlet of a schedule?

    Knowing CU fans, we'd probably be bitching about not being 8-4. :lol:
