    trapped at lunch with only USA Today to read, I looked at the Sagarin Football Power Ratings. CU checked in at 159. Last among any BCS schools, tucked comfortably between Akron (160) and Army (158). 50 spots ahead was....Villanova. I didn't even know Villanova had a FB team. Oh and next year's FCS opponent Arkansas St. was number 101.

    so we are competitive with Army and Akron. Phil and Bruce wanted us to be competitive, they just didn't set our expectations properly.

    But there is no chance our coach gets fired. Afterall, he is trying hard.

    Army would beat CU with lesser, smaller and slower talent

    I stand corrected...and relieved Gus Malzahn will not be in a position to abuse Brownie.

    For the record, I'm not looking forward to the Central Arkansas game. I'm sure Cent Arkansas is lloking forward to us though.

    Bruce is so senile that he still thinks Army is competing for national championships and CU is right there with them!

    I used to love to analyze Sagarin's charts. I think I will avoid this one.

    I wish I had. I very much want to see the Buffs do well, but I really just do not see many positives right now. Tough time to be a Buff fan.

    Sounds about right, Army and Akron - no way we'd be favored or should be.

    One of the agonizing points for me, for this season, is that Embree's given CSU their only win. In fact, CSU hasn't been within 12 points of any other team during their continuous losing streak (their 31-19 loss to mighty Utah State). It's not like Embres can claim ignorance of the rivalry between the two schools.

    Of course, maybe CSU is really a great program, almost a BCS buster, uh huh. I mean, look how they manhandled Fresno (a 28-7 loss... "manhandled" compared to Fresno vs. Embree's CU offering).

    Actually, I'm pretty certain CSU will beat Hawaii this next weekend, and maybe New Mexico to finish out their season. I think I'd prefer that than to have CSU crow about "their only win was against rival CU".
