    mizzery:

    Aug. 30 vs. Illinois (St. Louis)
    Sept. 6 Southeast Missouri
    Sept. 13 Nevada
    Sept. 20 Buffalo
    Oct. 4 @ Nebraska
    Oct. 11 Oklahoma State
    Oct. 18 @ Texas
    Oct. 25 Colorado (Homecoming)
    Nov. 1 @ Baylor
    Nov. 8 Kansas State
    Nov. 15 @ Iowa State
    Nov. 29 vs. Kansas (Kansas City)

    commentary:

    i suppose they could slip up in the illinois game, but this looks like a schedule set up for a gaudy record. mizzery really looks to me like the team to beat in the b12 north. the game at texas will tell us if they are a real national champioinship contender. with the athletes they have and this schedule, unless they choke, i think they look like 10+ win team.

    ku:

    08/30/08 vs. Florida International
    09/06/08 vs. Louisiana Tech
    09/12/08 at South Florida
    09/20/08 vs. Sam Houston State
    10/04/08 at Iowa State
    10/11/08 vs. Colorado
    10/18/08 at Oklahoma
    10/25/08 vs. Texas Tech
    11/01/08 vs. Kansas State
    11/08/08 at Nebraska
    11/15/08 vs. Texas
    11/29/08 vs. Missouri

    commentary:

    back to earth for ku... the south florida game will be no pushover. throw in CU, ou and nu on the road, plus texas, missery, and tech. with this schedule, look for ku to be somewhere around .500.

    fuskers:

    Aug 30 Western Michigan
    Sep 06 San Jose State
    Sep 13 New Mexico State
    Sep 20 Virginia Tech
    Oct 04 Missouri (Homecoming)
    Oct 11 at Texas Tech
    Oct 18 at Iowa State
    Oct 25 Baylor
    Nov 01 at Oklahoma
    Nov 08 Kansas
    Nov 15 at Kansas State
    Nov 28 Colorado

    commentary:

    no road games until the middle of october? wow. well, i guess we can expect a lot of early chest-thumping before mizzery pounds the snot out of them on their homefield. i'd put them down for somewhere around 8 wins.

    kjuco state:

    Aug 30 North Texas
    Sep 06 Montana State
    Sep 17 at Louisville
    Sep 27 Louisiana-Lafayette
    Oct 04 Texas Tech
    Oct 11 at Texas A&M
    Oct 18 at Colorado
    Oct 25 Oklahoma
    Nov 01 at Kansas
    Nov 08 at Missouri
    Nov 15 Nebraska
    Nov 22 Iowa State

    commentary:

    prince is going to be a real hot seat after this schedule. louisville, tech, atm, CU, ou, ku, and mizzery are likely to beat on the juco boys. put them sub-.500.

    isu:

    Aug 28 South Dakota State
    Sep 06 Kent State
    Sep 13 Iowa at Iowa City, Iowa
    Sep 20 at UNLV
    Oct 04 Kansas
    Oct 11 at Baylor
    Oct 18 Nebraska
    Oct 25 Texas A&M (Homecoming)
    Nov 01 at Oklahoma State
    Nov 08 at Colorado
    Nov 15 Missouri
    Nov 22 at Kansas State

    commentary:

    another rough year for isu. they have iowa's number, but once they get into the conference games, they are doomed. they will be somewhere around 4-5 wins at best.

    THE BUFFS:

    Aug 31 COLORADO STATE at Denver
    Sep 06 EASTERN WASHINGTON
    Sep 18 WEST VIRGINIA
    Sep 27 Florida State at Jacksonville, Fla.
    Oct 04 TEXAS (homecoming)
    Oct 11 at Kansas
    Oct 18 KANSAS STATE
    Oct 25 at Missouri
    Nov 01 at Texas A&M
    Nov 08 IOWA STATE
    Nov 15 OKLAHOMA STATE
    Nov 28 at Nebraska

    commentary:

    putting down my black and gold sunglasses, this looks pretty rough. put wvu, fsu, ku, and atm in the challenging category. put mizzery and texas in the VERY challenging category. even tho i think the Buffs will be much improved this season, with this schedule, it may not result in a lot more wins than last year. we will see.

    predicted order of finish:

    1. mizzery
    2. CU
    3. fuskers
    4. ku
    5. isu
    6. kjuco state

    bowling:

    big time bowl: mizzery
    weedwacker bowl: CU, fuskers
    on the cusp: ku
    home for the holidays: isu, kjuco state

    CU is the only team that doesn't have a cake non-conference, but thats fine we'll be ready come october. Missouri however should only lose 2 games AT THE MOST, I predict them going 11-1 then getting smoked by OU in the Big 12 Championship.

    predicted order of finish:

    1. mizzery
    2. ku
    3. fuskers
    4. CU
    5. kjuco state
    6. isu

    bowling:

    big time bowl: mizzery
    weedwacker bowl: ku, fuskers
    on the cusp: CU
    home for the holidays: isu, kjuco state

    I think KU will lose around 3 games, could be a few more, but still could be the second best team in the North. Everyone expects them to fall bigtime, but Mangina has been keeping them consistant, and while there will be a slight dropoff, I still expect them to be a very decent game. Fuskers--well, with that home schedule for the first half of the season, that helps work out kinks before hitting the road, so I think 6 wins is fairly easy for them, and then who knows.

    CU is the one with the harder schedule and the one who might be on the cusp. '09 I think will be a good year for us, and I certainly think that we can win them all as a fan, but there is alot of work to be done. WVU, FSU and UT will be key; win two or three of those games and we can do big, big things this year, win one or none, and we will have to work really hard and need some luck to get a bowl game. Just a brutal schedule. We all see much improvement in the team, but they are still young and face some good teams this year.

    KjSU and ISU might have hard years. I would expect them to be on the bottom two. CU and NU can be flip flopped, CU is a better team at this point IMO, but NU has the easier schedule. Should be a good game at the end of the year.

    I didn't realize that Mizzery's schedule was so soft, but I still have doubts as to whether they have a good enough running game and defense to run the table. I think they'll lose 2 or maybe even 3, at Texas and get upset somewhere else along the way, maybe even at the fuskers.

    I dont think that W Vag and FSU will be as much of a struggle as everyone thinks. FSU doesnt really have anything but a defense with a few holes in it and WVU cant pass the ball that great so all we need to do is stop/slow down that 5' 8 running back (Devine) and we should be in good shape. Both of those games need to be somewhat mistake free with the turnovers very much in our favor.

    KU won't lose in that non-conference schedule. I still say the OU game is their only 100% sure-fire loss on the schedule. They could win every other game.

    It is interesting to see that Nebraska really does have a tougher schedule then many people want to acknowledge. Their finish should be around 8 wins. I would not be surprised if they finish very strong and perhaps even knock off a win aginst the Buffs.

    ALSO, and I may be kicked out of here for even saying this, but the Buffs probably will not finish second in the B12 North this season. But they should have a good year with the foundation being put installed.

    Finally, Kjuco State will need a solid winning season or Sir Prince will be ran out of town.

    could be, but do they beat KU in Lawrence last year? Or Illinois in at Illinois? that's the trade off.

    looks to me like MU has a 3 game season and will likely favored in all but one of their game (@UT) unless Texas skids hard.

    i like KU to not flop more than most people here, seems, but i do think they lose at South Florida and win 6-7. i don't think they beat Mizzou, though.

    mostly, the North OOC is pathetic.

    Based on their sked, I think they go 6-6.

    Our sked is rough, 7-5 is realistic. Not sure what place we'll end up in (in the division).

    It's possible, but didn't they just sign him to an extension? I think he'll get at least one more year no matter what happens in '08.

    I wouldn't be suprised if every team we play before Oct 18th is undefeated when we play them.

    I don't see KU winning at USF, the Bulls will be better than most people realize.
