    Sat on the Buffs side of the field while they did pregame warmups today. Sefo went through all of the warmup drills, threw, ran. He looked about 80% speed/health. A few times the drill had a cut or sprint he seemed a bit frustrated/hurting. No way he was going to avoid the rush or make any runs today.

    Good news is he didn't look too far away. As I said, did all of the drills and seemed to throw fine. I'd expect him to play next week at this rate.

    Go Buffs,

    Thanks for the update. We're a bowl team with Montez this year. With Sefo, we're challenging for the Pac-12.

    Yeah, I went there.

    If Sefo is ready to go then no questions. If hes not 100%, rest him this week and he comes back vs usc.

    The future is bright, we need LB'S.

    Agree with Nik on this one. Never thought I would say it but we will challenge for a PAC title with Sefo. Montez is ready and can take us to a bowl game. The downward decade spiral is over.

    Tap the brakes fellas....I love Sefo's performance against UM, but that was a little over a half of FB. It isn't like he has erased memory (for some) of the 30 + starts that went before it. Personally, I think Montez will surpass Sefo in time. I am a little skeptical still of Sefo putting the team on his back and winning the conference. Let's settle down and get bowl eligible first.

    I will point out that Montez did something Sefo never managed to do- finish out a game. Montez was nails in a situation we have seen Sefo fold on several occasions.

    Just sayin'.

    Sefo also had receivers drop sure TD catches that would have won a game. He really hasn't had a receiver do what Bobo did for Montez yesterday.

    I'll trust MM, BL and Chiv to put their career self interests along with the interests of the program and this team in deciding which QB starts when. Two things: Montez
    made some very difficult throws yesterday and his timing, poise, and grit was undeniable. Second, we have 2 wins that count towards bowl eligibility, right? I don't think you get to count FCS games (Spud State). Correct me if I'm wrong, please. So we need 4 more. After Oregon State, which I'm calling a win, we'll need three more and there are no other gimmes on the schedule. Stanford, ASU, UCLA, and Utah are going to be tough games.

    We might need to use both QBs throughout the rest of the season. Will be fun to follow. Let's see how the Oregon State game goes. You don't need me to tell you that there are quite a few head coaches in college football that would hand Montez the starting job going forward after the Oregon win. At the very least as "his to lose".

    Thanks for going there Nik. It was inevitable and someone had to. With the caveat that the Ducks defense was abysmal, I saw Tez complete passes yesterday that Sefo has made only sporadically.

    I now depart from this (personally) as an Allbuffs subject, and I'm going to trust that the coaches have the best guy for the job/situation on the field at any time throughout the rest of the year. LETS GO BOWLIN' !!

    I don't want to saw Sefo. Might get arrested. Plus, think of the neg rep.

    1 FCS win counts. The second does not (unless you get a waiver from the NCAA for extraordinary circumstances, like the boulder flood)

    I liked what I saw from Montez (what Buff fan didn't.) Just to tap the brakes a little, though, Oregon is a pitiful defensive team. Pitiful. USC, UCLA, and Stanford are worlds better on defense than what Montez saw yesterday. I don't think there's any question that a healthy Sefo starts every game this season.

    This. Oregon is a mess on defense. This is not nearly the Oregon of the last 2-4 years. A great win, but that wasn't a top 10 team. Oregon is really young on the Oline too and we dominated the line of scrimmage for much of the game. That will not happen in several of our upcoming games.

    Im expecting that we play to within a game of the conference championship but don't get in.

    Many of us had commented on Montez at practice and how good he looked. I was pleasantly surprised at what we saw on the field in Eugene. That being said, this is Sefo's team and he will start as soon as he is healthy enough to do so. Seeing Montez doing well will certainly provide all the additional motivation he needs to get back.

    I like the way Woelk laid out the QB situation in one of his columns this weekend. Sounds feasible to me.

    Sefo started the momentum of this season with his stellar play. He isn't quite as athletic as Montez, and Montez appears to have a sky is the limit upside, but I say start Sefo when he is ready to come back. The dude is a warrior and was beating Meatchicken in their house before being injured. He now has the team he needs around him to succeed.

    I'm now giddy about the future with Montez ready to take over.

    Still Sefo's team but a much more comfortable situation.

    Coming off Michigan a lot of the attitude was get through Oregon and hope Sefo can hobble through a win against Oregon State.

    Now as a complete reversal the attitude is that if Sefo isn't close enough to 100% we are comfortable with Montez and Give Sefo another week to get healthy.

    Once Sefo does come back we also know that if he gets nicked up that taking him out of the game, even if just for a couple series, isn't going to be a disaster. We are no longer in a situation of thinking Sefo has to be out there to have any hope.

    He is still the team leader and he is still the guy with the experience and this season seems to have taken a huge jump in his game but he is no longer our only option.

    I think Sefo starts this week and it's the extra shot in the arm the team needs to avoid an emotional letdown on Saturday.

    I'd rather give Sefo an extra week to heal and be ready for USC.

    WTF????? Syko talking anything other than DTs? What has the world come to?
    (He must have scored a paper-pushing gig, instead of sleeping next to batteries with the rest of the Company!)

    I think Idaho St. and even UM shows this team's focus is immune to letdowns.
    Start Montez and bring in Sefo, IF he's no less than 90%, in the second half, (ala Manning over Ostweiler vs. San Diego) to shake out the cobwebs, in prep for U$C..
